Laser Therapy for Tissue Regeneration
Laser Therapy uses Low Level Lasers, which improve tissue repair, ultimately reducing pain and inflammation wherever the light ray is applied. When cells absorb this light energy, it initiates a series of events that eventually result in mending damaged or injured tissue, a reduction in pain, inflammation, and an overall reduction in healing time.
The stimulation of cell repair and rejuvenation can also lead to a reduction in the appearance of scar tissue and burns, as well as any inflammation or pain associated with tissue damage.
- Surgery-free approach to tissue regeneration
- Effective results in the short and long term
- Non-invasive and painless procedure which takes only minutes
- Can reduce pain associated with tissue damage and stimulate regeneration
How does Low Level Laser therapy work?
Low Level Lasers are handheld devices used by the clinician which are small and look much like a handheld torch. The laser is placed directly over the injured area for 30 seconds to several minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated and the intensity of laser used.
Once the laser energy passes through the layers of skin and reaches the target area, it is absorbed and interacts with the light sensitive elements in the cell. This process can be compared to photosynthesis in plants – sunlight is absorbed by plants, which is then converted to usable energy so that the plant can grow.
When cells absorb this light energy, it initiates a series of events that eventually result in mending damaged or injured tissue, a reduction in pain, inflammation, and an overall reduction in healing time.
