Cold laser/Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has been used worldwide for over 40 years to relieve pain and inflammation, repair tissue and heal wounds, remove scars, regenerate nerves, as well as solve addictions such as smoking.
Cold laser therapy helps tissues, muscle, skin and nerves to heal faster as it works at the cellular level. It is low-intensity laser therapy that uses low levels of light to stimulate healing. It doesn’t cause your tissues to heat up like aesthetic or surgical lasers. Low-level light is applied directly to the problem area and the tissue then absorbs the light. Generally, this application leads to a chemical or biological reaction to red and near infrared light and subsequently damaged cells have a physiological reaction that helps promote their healing/regeneration.
Cold laser therapy is painless and non-invasive and there’s no need for medication or other preparation. During the procedure, you’ll feel the laser device against your skin, but it does not create heat, vibration or sound. Even better, it is safe and there are generally no side effects or reported adverse results.
Please note, that while each session only takes a few minutes, it may take a series of treatments before you can gauge its effectiveness.
