The Power Of Light For The Spa Industry - GentleWaves® Introduces Elite Unit Created for Estheticians and Spas
VIRGINA BEACH, Virg. (March 31, 2006)-Three years ago, Light BioScience®
changed the way dermatologists approached anti-aging and skin rejuvenation
with the introduction of its GentleWaves® LED Photomodulation.
Now they're bringing this proven technology to the spa industry with
the introduction of GentleWaves Elite. This compact and affordable
unit brings GentleWaves' incomparable collagen-replenishing technology
to estheticians for the first time ever. With its portable design
and easy-to-use hand piece, GentleWaves Elite puts the power of light
in the palm of your hand.
GentleWaves is the first LED device to be approved by the FDA for
wrinkle reduction. Endorsed in dozens of peer review journals and
backed by the industry's top dermatologists including Dr. David McDaniel,
Dr. Tina Alster, Dr. Roy Geronemus, Dr. Robert Weiss and Dr. Patricia
Wexler, GentleWaves Elite brings a product with medical credentials
to the spa industry.
The Technology Behind LED Photomodulation
Many light-based skin rejuvenation methods use a heat to damage cells,
which creates a wound-healing response to induce collagen production.
But a thermal approach is often unpredictable, relying on several
factors that vary from patient to patient. GentleWaves' patented LED
Photomodulation's non-thermal, pulsing technology allows estheticians
to zero in and alter collagen formation without heat and/or causing
cellular injury. GentleWaves Elite packs powerful LED technology in
a unique, hand-held device that provides estheticians with the ease
of treating patients while they're on the treatment table. Also, the
Elite unit is perfect for treating skin on any area of the body. An
esthetician can treat a client's entire face, neck and chest in less
than five minutes.
LED Photomodulation involves transmitting specific packets of light
to change the biological activity of living cells. Key to the process
is Photomodulation coding - the specific parameters with which the
low-intensity light is delivered to stimulate collagen formation while
suppressing collagen-degrading enzymes. This combination of skin correction
makes GentleWaves the perfect device to not only strengthen skin and
repair damage but also prevent further breakdown.
The Ideal Treatment to Enhance Spa Treatments
GentleWaves Elite is the perfect compliment to any and all anti-aging
spa treatments. Not only is the technology proven to stimulate the
production of collage, the LED Photomodulation session drastically
reduces redness and skin irritation after treatments such as photo-facials
microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
