Cold Laser

How Cold Laser Works

When the body has an injury the cells are damaged and fail to function within normal parameters. Low level lasers from the Cold Laser machine penetrate deeply into the skin and work by restoring this abnormal cellular function. Cold Laser uses a non-heat producing light laser, which is locked at a specific wavelength that is optimal for treatment and can penetrate deeply into tissue. Cold Laser or Low Level Laser Therapy is emerging as the therapeutic modality in the healing arts community.

The biological effects of Low Level Laser Therapy have been shown to significantly accelerate and enhance the body’s natural defense and repair abilities when injured. By reducing the duration of inflammation as well as enhancing specific repair and healing process, Low Level Laser Therapy has been proven to provide pain relief, reduce damage due to the injury and loss of function. Low Level Laser Therapy enables the body to have a more rapid repair and stronger tissues once healed.

Physiologic effects include improved metabolism, circulation and tissue healing.
