The Art and Science of Beautiful Skin.
People in Alpharetta, Buckhead, East Cobb, Midtown and the surrounding areas in Atlanta and Marietta, GA wanting to recapture the glow of a youthful look may turn to the board-certified dermatologists at Dermatology Affiliates for the GentleWaves® LED light treatment to produce collagen in areas of the face and neck restoring a younger appearance.
What is the GentleWaves® LED?
GentleWaves® is a gentle, non-invasive laser treatment that encourages the production of collagen by stimulating cells. This action is achieved through the use of Light Emitting Diodes or LEDs. GentleWaves®, also called LED Photomodulation, makes wrinkles, fine lines, brown spots and scars less noticeable painlessly and with no downtime.
GentleWaves® stimulates the skin by releasing light pulses to targeted areas to stimulate the production of collagen. In about a minute, the treatment reduces fine lines caused by repetitive facial movements and blocks enzymes in the skin that destroy collagen during the aging process. GentleWaves® LED Photomodulation® is suitable for all skin types and is typically used on the face, neck, and chest areas. Additionally, GentleWaves ® does not produce any side effects such as reddening or peeling and has no recovery period following each treatment. The condition of the skin and how much of it will be treated are factors that determine how many treatments will be needed. Typically 10 treatments are administered, and there will be a mild improvement after every treatment. Treatments may be performed every three or six months once the condition of the skin improves. To combat future skin aging, continued treatments to maintain the skin’s condition are needed. Because of the flashing lights GentleWaves® is not recommended for people who suffer from seizures
Those best suited for GentleWaves® are people who are younger and want a quick and affordable skin booster that comes with no discomfort, undesirable effects, or a long recovery period.
GentleWaves® is often used in conjunction with other treatments and greatly compliments, Microdermabrasion and laser resurfacing procedures.
You will not feel or look different immediately after treatment, as the results take the time to fully develop. Most patients select GentleWaves® because of the following:
- Fast treatment sessions and zero recovery time
- Brighter skin
