I've purchased unlimited daily treatments with Gentlewaves, a LED light device, for $100/mo. Each treatment lasts less than 1 minute. This is my first time trying this treatment. Eye protection is reportedly not needed, but I've chosen to use goggles. I started out doing a daily treatment, which the salon says is safe, but have decided to cut back to a treatment every 2-3 days, in part because I think this frequency is sufficient. After 6 treatments so far the quickest and most obvious improvement has been reduction of pore size. And I'm beginning to see early evidence of other improvements claimed for this treatment, namely reduction of redness and softening of fine lines in the peri-orbital region. So far I'm pleased with the results and the low or non risk of this treatment is a real plus.

Regret decision of unlimited treatments

I now think it was a mistake to have "unlimited" Gentlewaves treatments as the salon promoted and said was safe. After initial positive changes, I now think my skin looks more distressed. I regret not adhering to the limited recommended frequency of once or twice a week with at least 48 hours between each treatment. Since the company that developed Gentlewaves is nolonger in business, it has been difficult to find up-to-date information on the treatment. The best articles I found were:
Millennium MediSpa

Each staff person has been attentive, answered my questions, and been quickly available so no waiting.
