Photobiomodulation (PBM) the process in which a laser produces an impulse of light at a specific wavelength (600-980nm) to drive energy deep into a targeted area. This light penetrates tissue at desired depths and is absorbed by cells, triggering a biological process that releases natural, beneficial chemicals that aid in decreased inflammation and pain, while increasing circulation, cell repair and regeneration.
The FDA has cleared laser treatment for a myriad of chronic and acute pain symptoms. Laser treatment is regularly trusted for its beneficial effects far beyond pain reduction alone (in both medical and veterinary fields). Technological advancements now allow for fast, naturally effective and safe sessions with immediate benefits.
Within a single laser therapy session, the process of PBM floods treated cells with ATP, (adenosine tri-phosphate), one of the most used molecules in the body and critical to cell regulation and regeneration. Over multiple sessions, cell functionality increases, which helps in healthy tissue growth. As cells and tissues become healthier, entire systems, as well as the body as a whole becomes healthier.
No. Patients may feel a warming sensation at the site of the treatment, but this is normal and proper laser usage will minimize this effect.
Our device has been cleared by the FDA. It has been chosen by doctors, hospitals and clinics because of its safe and reliable precedent. Please wear safety goggles.
During the treatment, you might notice a slight tingling over the treated area. This is the normal sensation of the energy penetrating into your tissue. Many people see immediate relief of their symptoms as well as apparent long-term results.
Patients usually come in for multiple sessions each week to manage their ailments. Work with your clinician to determine a program based on your symptoms and severity. Generally, acute conditions are 6-8 sessions and chronic conditions are 10-15 sessions.
