Gentlewaves in Washington, DC
Over time, our skin becomes less elastic. Smoking, stress, sun exposure, excessive alcohol, pollutants in the air and illness all conspire to create lines, wrinkles and scars. Skin changes may be part of the natural aging process, but now you have options to reduce the visible signs of aging.
With the GentleWaves skin rejuvenation treatments, you can restore and maintain healthier, smoother and better-looking skin. Through the process of LED Photomodulation, GentleWaves both corrects skin appearance and helps minimize signs of aging over time. Let GentleWaves provide the ultimate workout for your skin.
What is LED Photomodulation?
The FDA-approved LED Photomodulation is the interaction of light delivered through Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) to activate cells causing them to produce collagen and multiply. By building collagen, wrinkles are reduced and skin retains a more youthful, radiant appearance. LED Photomodulation also simultaneously suppresses collagen-degrading enzymes that assist in the aging process. This combination of skin correction makes GentleWaves the perfect treatment to keep your skin fit.
How does LED Photomodulation work?
GentleWaves, the first LED device FDA-approved for wrinkle reduction, offers a totally natural, non-ablative method for skin rejuvenation. In a process similar to photosynthesis in plants, the LED light interacts with cells and stimulates them to produce more collagen and elastin, while decreasing enzymes that breakdown skin. GentleWaves delivers this light in a unique, pulsing sequence that is administered in just minutes.
Will the treatments hurt?
No. GentleWaves is a truly pain-free skin rejuvenation procedure. Treatment is quick and very relaxing. The energy delivered by the LEDs does not rely on heat, so it safely and gently treats all skin types.
What will I feel like after my treatment?
Within 4-8 treatments, skin becomes smoother and softer. Redness and brown spots will begin to fade. Changes in the skin are progressive, so even months after your last treatment, you’ll notice continual improvement in wrinkles and pores as well. You can return to normal activities and apply cosmetics immediately following GentleWaves treatments.
Can I have LED Photomodulation with other treatments?
Yes. GentleWaves LED Photomodulation can be used alone or in combination with other rejuvenation techniques to enhances the results, slow down the skin aging process, and ensure a true, full-face rejuvenation. We have found it to be highly complementary with other skin treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers, as well as laser and IPL treatments.
Cosmetic providers worldwide are beginning to choose the GentleWaves Skin Fitness System as one of their preferred treatments for wrinkle reduction, hyperpigmented lesions (brown spots and freckles) and other skin conditions associated with photoaging.
