Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), also known as photobiomodulation, cold laser therapy, and laser bio-stimulation, has been proved to be safe, effective, and painless. Used to treat injuries and chronic pain, LLLT is a medical treatment that stimulates cellular function. This therapy involves the use of red and infrared light applied to the affected area. The light stimulates the cells to repair tissue, reduce inflammation, and reduce pain. Low-level laser therapy thus helps sick or injured cells take in oxygen and nutrients at a level similar to that of a healthy cell. It also helps these injured cells release wastes and toxins.

LLLT is a safe procedure that produces no heat, so there is no tissue destruction as there would be with high-powered lasers. Some of the advantages of LLLT are as follows:

  • It is safe. The FDA considers LLLT to be without significant risk.
  • It is noninvasive. Unlike surgery, LLLT does not cut or invade the body. There is no damage to skin, tissue, or muscle, and thus, no recovery time after treatment.
  • It is non-toxic. Many physicians prescribe medications called NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) for pain and inflammation. As with any drugs, NSAIDs have side effects, whereas LLLT has no toxic effects.
  • It is easily applied. The therapy is quick, easy, and painless.
