Preparation for LED treatment

There is no preparation for LED treatment as it is not a "resurfacing" procedure. It is an FDA-approved treatment that uses Light Emitting Diodes to stimulate your skin. In my office we use the GentleWaves machine to deliver this light in a pulsing sequence that is administered in just minutes. There is no damage to the skin or "down time". Through a process similar to photosynthesis in plants, the LED light interacts with cells causing them to produce more collagen and elastin, while decreasing enzymes that break down skin. By producing collagen, wrinkles are reduced and the skin retains a more youthful, radiant appearance.
