Cold Laser

When patients learn that we use laser therapy in our practice, they have visions of a powerful, steel-cutting beam of light. The “cold” laser we use has only a tiny fraction of the power. Instead, its value comes from the frequency of the light it emits, not its intensity.

Imagine the surprise when researchers learned that certain light frequencies can actually reduce inflammation and enhance the healing process!

Specific wavelengths

Instead of the full spectrum of light that comes from the sun, our low level laser produces light in a narrow frequency. Frequencies in the red portion of the rainbow are shown to assist the healing of soft tissues. Apparently, cells of our body have receptors that are sensitive to light.

How does it work?

How can certain frequencies of light speed up or slow down biological processes? Many theories have been suggested, but from practical application with real patients we know it works:

  • Wound healing
  • Inflammation reduction
  • Pain management
  • Cell regeneration
  • Scar tissue reduction

While scientists debate the mechanism by which low level laser works and publish their work in the scientific literature, our patients are just delighted that it does work!
