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 tissues. 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.
During this treatment, different wavelengths and outputs of low-level light are applied directly to a targeted area. The body tissues then absorb the light. The red and near-infrared light cause a reaction, and the damaged cells respond with a physiological reaction that promotes regeneration.
Although you’ll feel the laser device touching your skin, the treatment is painless and noninvasive. There will be no sound and you’ll feel no vibration or heat.
The main uses for cold laser therapy are tissue repair and relief from pain and inflammation. It’s also used to help reduce swelling and promote healing of the joints and soft tissue.
-Tissue repair: Improved speed and quality of regeneration of skin, muscle, tendon, ligament, bone and neural tissue.
-Inflammation: Resolution of inflammation
-Analgesia: Temporary (48 hours) reversible, inhibition of nerve conduction in small and medium diameter peripheral nerve fibers.
Metal implants, plastics and pacemakers are not contra-indicated.
We use Low Laser treatment as a complementary device included with other treatments.
