We are proud to say our office is a low-level Laser provider for the Erchonia laser that has been proven through a double-blind clinical trial to decrease pain by 66%.
How It Works
The effects of Low Level Laser Therapy (3LT®) are photochemical (cold), not thermal. Hot lasers in the medical world are used place for surgical precision while cold lasers are used for healing precision. Low level laser therapy (LLLT) or cold laser, is a painless, sterile, non-invasive, drug-free modality that is used for a variety of conditions such as, acute and chronic pain, body-contouring, acne and appearance of cellulite. During treatment of the tissue with the 635nm low level laser, an interaction between cells and photons takes place— a photochemical reaction. Photons from the laser affect the tissue at the cellular level. During a laser treatment, the light will penetrate the skin and is absorbed by this receptor within the mitochondria. Receptor stimulation with light promotes energy production, biochemical reactions, protein and growth factor synthesis, cell growth and proliferation and enhanced blood and oxygen flow. The increased blood flow reduces inflammation that can cause pain. Stop the pain without harmful side effects.
