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 Fitness System, 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
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
Can I have LED Photomodulation with other treatments?
Yes. GentleWaves LED Photomodulation is an ideal stand-alone procedure,
and in combination with other rejuvenation techniques, it enhances
the results, slows down the skin aging process and ensures a true,
full-face treatment. 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 surgeons 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.

How is LED Photomodulation different from Laser and Intense
Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy?
Other light-based skin therapies including intense pulsed light
and laser treatments rely on heat and thermal injury to create changes
in skin appearance. LED Photomodulation does not use heat and the
related tissue trauma to affect change. Therefore patients are not
subject to the variables associated with thermal wound-healing responses.
GentleWaves Skin Fitness involves no pain, no side effects and no
How many treatments will I need?
A series of treatments is required to get your skin in shape and
looking great. The number of visits may vary depending on the problem
being treated. Results are progressive, so you will notice significant
improvement with each session. Since the skin will continue to age,
maintenance treatments are necessary to prolong and enhance healthier
skin. Consult with your physician on the regimen that's best for
What are the benefits of LED Photomodulation?
With a series of treatments, GentleWaves reduces wrinkles and pores,
and improves skin tone and texture for stronger, smoother, better-looking
skin that's radiant. GentleWaves can also be used to treat sunburn.
Since LED Photomodulation doesn't require heat, patients feel no
pain during treatment. Treatments are also less expensive than other
light-based therapies. GentleWaves is truly a pain free, risk free,
and very affordable solution for shaping up your skin.
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
