How Cold Laser Therapy Works:
Laser Therapy is a process that utilizes light sourced energy to stimulate cells within the body. Cold Laser Therapy helps stimulate tissues, blood and lymph to assist in injury recovery and helps to relieve pain. The lasers used in our office uses multiple wavelengths to stimulate the cells at various depths beneath the skin.
How is Cold Laser Therapy Administered?
A laser emitter is placed directly upon the skin over the area of concern. Depending on the location and size of your injury, our provider may move the emitter around to cover a wider area or they may keep the laser in one spot. Each session of the Cold Laser Therapy lasts approximately 5-10 minutes.
Does Laser Therapy hurt?
Laser therapy is non-invasive and painless. Some people may feel a warming sensation or a slight tingling over the area receiving laser. Most patients will feel nothing.
Is it safe?
Multi-Radiance lasers are in the safest FDA laser class. They won't overheat or burn. Extensive clinical research and tests have confirmed their efficacy and safety.
When can I expect to see results?
Some patients may feel the benefits after the first session and most patients will begin to feel the beneficial effects of therapy after 3-5 sessions. Some will take longer. The number of treatments required before a patient may see results depends on the type of condition being treated, the age of the patient, and a patient's health. Dr. Johnson will meet with you and help you decide the best treatment plan.
