What is GentleWaves®?

GentleWaves® or LED Photomodulation is the interaction of light delivered through Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) to activate cells causing them to produce collagen or multiply. The main benefit is a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots and scars. In addition, the treatments are pain free with no downtime at all.

How many treatments
will I need?

Typically treatments are spread over a couple of weeks or a few months. The number of treatments and the treatment times will vary depending on the problem being treated, the amount of surface area treated and the area treated. Since the results are progressive, you will notice more correction with each treatment. As full correction approaches, treatment intervals can be expanded to three to six month intervals. Since the skin continues to age, the maintenance treatments will be required.

Will the treatment hurt?

No. The treatment is very relaxing. The delivery of the LED energy to the skin is fast and completely pain free. The energy generated by the LEDs is cool and gentle enough to treat all ethnic skin types.

Can I have other treatments with GentleWaves®?

Yes. LED Photomodulation can be administered alone or in conjunction with other treatments. We have found it to be highly complementary with other skin treatments such as MicroPeels and Microdermabrasion as well as Botox® and dermal fillers.

What will I feel like after the treatment?

Most patients return to normal activity immediately. What our patients like most about LED Photomodulation is that treatments are fast and they don’t have any downtime.
