Gentle Waves Skin Treatment

The Theory of GentleWaves LED Photomodulation

Scientists theorize that LED Photomodulation uses low intensity light-emitting diodes (LED's) in a process similar to plant photosynthesis whereby plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into cellular building blocks.

How the GentleWaves LED Photomodulation System Works

GentleWaves for skin rejuvenations the only device to utilize Photomodulation technology. It uses energy from LED sources, delivered at proprietary fluences and pulse algorithms, specifically matched to the cellular processes that enhance skin rejuvenation. This patented technology is only available with the GentleWaves device.

How is GentleWaves different than other skin rejuventating treatments?

Current high-tech skin rejuvenation therapies operate via photothermolysis to thermally injure tissue and induce a wound healing response or use chemicals to peel damages tissue. However, wound healing responses are proven, are unpredictable, and are an imperfect mechanism for achieving new collagen production.

How is GentleWaves different than other LED devices?

Gentle Waves is the first and only LED device to receive marketing approval for a medical claim associated with cosmetic improvement of aging and sun-damaged skin. It improves the skin without relying on high energy sources and heat damage.

For the first time, we are slowing down collagen breakdown and building up new collagen with no pain, no redness and no serious side effects.

How does GentleWaves work?

Gentle Waves uses specially coded arrays of light emitting diodes to modulate the activity of living cells. Unlike other laser, pulsed-light or radiofrequency techniques used for skin rejuvenation, the core technology of this device delivers very low-intensity, non-thermal light energy to stimulate collagen and reverse the appearance of photoaging.

What does GentleWaves treat?

The non-thermal light energy stimulates collagen and reverses the appearance of photoaging. It is also excellent for treamtent of the hands, neck and chest areas.
