Cold Laser Therapy
Now there is a NEW revolutionary treatment that has been proven safe and effective by the FDA.
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 cellulite. As well as anxiety, eczema, burns, and broken bones.
In contrast to the high-power, high-heat lasers that are used in various surgical procedures, Low Level Lasers produce a low-level cold output that has no thermal effect on the body’s tissue. Instead, the laser serves to stimulate biological function similar to photosynthesis in plants.
Our Cold Lasers are non-invasive, painless and speeds the recovery process by encouraging cell regeneration. Treatment with the laser also improves range of motion and decreases inflammation and pain, thus reducing the need for medication.
Housed within the mitochondria (the cell energy manufacturer) are receptors capable of absorbing distinct parameters of light. Think of these receptors like any drug receptors. When we consume a prescription medication, the compound is absorbed by the body and it locates a particular receptor and will bind to that receptor based upon its molecular design. Once the drug binds, a secondary reaction inside the cell takes place. A similar mechanism is observed when exposing the body to a particular color of light. 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.
