GentleWaves is an LED light-based therapy that helps to treat surface lines and wrinkles and can improve brown spots and large pores without visibly disturbing the surface skin. Regular use of GentleWaves is one of the least invasive ways to reverse the signs of time. FDA approved as an effective cosmetic treatment, GentleWaves uses LED (Light Emitting Diodes) to erase skin imperfections caused by age or environment, and does so painlessly and with no downtime. The full course of GentleWaves treatment typically involves twelve soothing sessions spaced at regular intervals about a week or two apart. GentleWaves won’t even put a dent in your schedule: each GentleWaves session is only a minute long.
GentleWaves improves fine facial lines like crow’s feet or lip lines. It’s also effective for photo-damage and large pores. GentleWaves stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, and simultaneously breaks down the enzyme that inhibits collagen production. GentleWaves has no side effects. Depending on the condition of the skin, the dermatologist may recommend GentleWaves on its own, or in combination with laser therapies or gentle chemical peeling. GentleWaves is FDA approved for reducing the signs of aging.
One of the most promising advances in recent years for the treatment of acne is pain and side effect free, yet still effective: the Blue Light for teenagers or adults with moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris. Repeated exposure to the Blue Light (over a course of five or six sessions, usually scheduled a week apart) has proven to control acne (like the common cold, acne has long resisted anything so definitive as a cure). In the past, treatment for moderate to severe acne has ranged from topical creams and cleansers to medications like Accutane, which is not always safely tolerated and must be monitored closely by the doctor. Other acne remedies can involve frequent dosing and complicated routines that make them almost as annoying as the condition itself. Conversely, the Blue Light is pleasant and painless, and each session can be accomplished in fifteen minutes at our office.
Acne results when the tiny glands beneath the skin surface (called sebaceous glands) become clogged with an oily substance (called sebum), causing bacteria to grow and blemishes to appear on the skin surface. The bacteria can be controlled with Blue Light. Once the bacteria are controlled, sebaceous glands de-clog and begin to function normally. Swelling and pimpling subside and the surface skin appears clear. The dermatologist determines the number of Blue Light sessions recommended for effective control of the patient’s condition.
