GentleWaves™ Treats fine lines and wrinkles, reduces redness and pigmentation
GentleWaves is a quick and painless skin rejuvenation treatment that uses safe, low level LED light to help improve and prevent fine lines and wrinkles. It has also been shown to reduce redness and pigmentation. GentleWaves has a unique combination of repair and prevention that makes it the perfect treatment to keep skin fit by strengthening the skin’s foundation and minimizing further breakdown. Try the GentleWaves Euro package to combine the light-based treatment with an exfoliating treatment or enzyme mask for further skin rejuvenating effects. GentleWaves is the perfect treatment to combine with our other cosmetic treatments that we offer.
Is GentleWaves safe?
GentleWaves is safe for treating all skin types, even those with sensitive skin.
What is the treatment like?
Before GentleWaves is administered, the technician will gently cleanse the skin. If you selected the GentleWaves Euro treatment, the enzyme mask or exfoliating treatment will be applied. Once the exfoliation or mask has been completed and skin has been cleansed, the technician will seat you in front of the GentleWaves light panel. You will be put on protective eyewear and the panel of lights will begin a pulsing, flashing pattern that lasts for approximately 90 seconds. The panel will be repositioned to treat the neck and hands for another 90 second session for each area.
When will I see results?
Typically treatments are spread out over several weeks or a few months. Results are seen gradually and you will notice more correction with each treatment.
Are there any side effects?
Some patients may experience mild and temporary redness after treatment.
Is there any downtime or restrictions?
There is no downtime with GentleWaves treatments and you may resume normal activities right away. While undergoing any light-based treatments, daily use of sunscreen is strongly recommended. We recommend avoiding any aggressive or abrasive treatments including waxing for 48 hours before and after treatment.
What can I do to get the best results from these treatments?
First, and most importantly, we recommend daily use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen SPF-30 or higher. Additionally, we recommend using quality skin care products. Ask us about our SkinMedica® line of skin care products and we can happily recommend which products would benefit your skin and beauty routine the most.
How often should I have GentleWaves treatments?
We recommend having a GentleWaves treatment once a week for 8 weeks, then continuing with monthly maintenance treatments.
