Low-Level Laser Therapy

A laser therapy that stimulates healing while using low levels of light.

Low-Level Laser Therapy

 

 

Uses light to speed up many stages of healing. LLLT accelerates inflammatory response and quickens bone repair while also fostering revascularization of wounds. It is proven to speed up the healing process for tendinopathy strains / sprains and post-surgical edema.

Used to treat pain and edema associated with:

  • Plantar Fascitis
  • Achilles Tendinitis
  • Back Pain
  • Knee Pain
  • Muscle Strains
  • Shoulder Impingements
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

What is LLLT (aka Cold Laser Therapy)?

 

Cold laser therapy is low-intensity laser therapy that stimulates healing while using low levels of light.

The technique is called “cold” laser therapy because the low levels of light aren’t enough to heat your body’s tissue. The level of light is low when compared to other forms of laser therapy, such as those used to destroy tumors and coagulate tissue.

Surgical and aesthetic lasers heat the tissue being treated. True to its name, cold laser therapy does not.

 

Cold laser therapy is also known as:

  • Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
  • Low-Power Laser Therapy (LPLT)
  • Soft Laser Biostimulation
  • Photobiomodulation

 

How does cold laser therapy work?

During this procedure, different wavelengths and outputs of low-level light are applied directly to a targeted area. The body tissue then absorbs the light. The red and near-infrared light cause a reaction, and the damaged cells respond with a physiological reaction that promotes regeneration.

Superficial tissue is commonly treated with wavelengths between 600 and 700 nanometers (nm). For deeper penetration, wavelengths between 780 and 950 nm are used.

Although you’ll feel the laser device touching your skin, the procedure is painless and noninvasive. There will be no sound and you’ll feel no vibration or heat. Each treatment typically takes only a few minutes.
