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 the GentleWaves® LED Photomodulation System Works
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 technique in a unique, pulsing sequence that is administered in just minutes.

How Is GentleWaves® Unique?
GentleWaves® is a natural non-thermal process that uses gentle LEDs emitting less energy than a 25 watt light bulb to improve the appearance of aging and sun-damaged skin without skin tissue injury or patient discomfort.
In a recent multi center study of 90 patients who underwent 8 GentleWaves treatments, 62% achieved improved appearance of skin around the eyes, 36% around the upper lip, and 26% achieved improvement of skin roughness around the eyes. Continued improvement in patients appearance was observed for 4 months after the last treatment session. High patient satisfaction was reported.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does a GentleWaves® treatment take?
The Classic GentleWaves LED treatment takes less than one minute. However, many patients opt for the GentleWaves Euro treatment program.
What is a GentleWaves Euro Treatment?
The GentleWaves Euro Treatment consists of a gentle exfoliation of the skin prior to the GentleWaves LED session. Enzymatic masques, microdermabrasion and chemical peels are the three most common methods of exfoliation done prior to GentleWaves treatments.
How many GentleWaves treatments do I need?
Depending on the desired results and the area being treated, most physicians are recommending 8 to 10 treatments.
How often should I get GentleWaves treatments?
Since GentleWaves is non-thermal, you can be treated up to twice a week. Most physicians are recommending a once per month program, after the initial 8-10 treatments.
Will the GentleWaves treatments hurt?
No. Unlike lasers, GentleWaves is non-thermal and patients are reporting no pain associated with the treatments.
When will I start seeing results?
GentleWaves treatments are progressive, and you will notice more correction with each treatment. Patients are reporting noticeable changes as early as after 5 to 7 treatments.
Can I combine GentleWaves with other skin care treatments?
Yes, GentleWaves can be administered alone or in conjunction with other treatments. Physicians have found GentleWaves to be highly complimentary with other skin care treatments such as Botox, dermal fillers, and skin rejuvenating lasers.
