What’s Cold Laser Therapy?
It’s called ‘cold’ laser therapy because heat is not used in this treatment. It’s a low-intensity laser treatment that uses low levels of light to help repair and heal tissue.
With blasts of light, the laser penetrates through the skin and into the tissue to aid in reducing inflammation, healing tissue, increasing blood flow, stimulating wound healing and tissue regeneration, and reducing scarring. Different wavelengths are applied directly to the problem area and the body then absorbs that light. It’s a noninvasive and painless treatment option lasting only a few minutes each session. Cold laser therapy has also been compared to anti-inflammatory treatment as it mimics the same effect anti-inflammatory medications offer, but without the side effects.
