The Art and Science of Beautiful Skin.
People in Buckhead, East Cobb, Midtown, and the surrounding areas in Atlanta and Marietta, GA wanting to recapture the glow of youthful skin 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® also called Photomodulation, is a gentle, non-invasive laser treatment that encourages the production of collagen by stimulating cells. This is achieved through the use of Light Emitting Diodes or LEDs. This procedure makes wrinkles, fine lines, brown spots, and scars less noticeable.
GentleWaves® stimulates the skin by releasing light pulses to targeted areas to stimulate the production of collagen. In a short amount of time, this treatment reduces fine lines caused by repetitive facial movements and blocks enzymes in the skin that destroys collagen during the aging process. GentleWaves® LED Photomodulation is suitable for all skin types and is typically used on the face, neck, and chest. 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 mild improvements after every treatment. Treatments may be performed every three or six months once the condition of the skin improves. To combat future 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.
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
The cost of GentleWaves® treatments varies with each patient depending on the extent of the areas to be treated and whether they are performed with other cosmetic treatments. During the consultation we will discuss cost and payment options. We accept cash, checks, and most major credit cards. If you are interested in learning more about GentleWaves®, please contact one of our Dermatology Affiliates offices in Buckhead, East Cobb or Midtown to schedule a consultation.
GentleWaves is safe for treating all skin types, even those with sensitive skin.
Some patients may experience mild and temporary redness after treatment.
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.
