Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) Laser

We use a Near-Infrared Laser machine that employs Low-Level Laser Therapy, also known as cold laser therapy or photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy. It involves the use of laser light to stimulate tissue repair, reduce inflammation, and relieve pain.

LLLT works by delivering specific wavelengths (near-infrared) of light to targeted areas of the body. These photons of light are absorbed by cells and stimulate cellular activity that may lead to various biochemical changes. The effect is photochemical and not thermal (heat or cold) and the changes including:

  • Increased production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the most basic energy source for cells.
  • Enhanced blood circulation by increasing the formation of new small blood vessels.
  • Reduction of inflammation by modulating inflammatory molecules.
  • Accelerated tissue repair and wound healing.
  • Pain relief by stimulating the release of endorphins, which are natural painkillers
  • Having an anti-oxidative role and promotes oxidative balance by increasing the levels of superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme.

While LLLT has shown promising results in many studies, its mechanisms of action and optimal treatment parameters are still areas of ongoing research.
It’s important to note that LLLT should be administered by qualified professionals to ensure safety and effectiveness.
