Who Is Using Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy, also called low level laser therapy (LLLT), is a non-surgical option for chronic and acute pain relief, tissue and cellular repair. It has been used worldwide for four decades and is used widely by athletes and professional sports team to promote healing.
How Does It Work?
Studies have shown that different wave lengths of light promote healing of skin, muscle, nerve, tendon, cartilage, bone, and dental and periodontal tissues. LLLT accelerates many stages of healing as it lessons inflammation and promotes and accelerates tissue repair.
During the procedure, a beam of low level laser light penetrates one to two inches into the skin to the damaged cells and restores cellular function. Physiologic effects include improved cellular metabolism, circulation and tissue healing. Each session lasts between 12 and 18 minutes.
While this therapy is painless, non-invasive and requires no medicine to be taken, it does require more than one visit to obtain maximum results. It generally takes between 8 and 30 sessions and clients may need to return 2 to 4 times a week initially. After a consultation, a personalized wellness plan will be created for you.
Is It Safe?
Yes. The FDA has ruled that the therapy is safe. The only contraindication (warning) is for use directly in the eye.
