Did you know you produce light? Biophotons are the faint light, that all cells emit, which direct the body’s biochemical processes. Cold laser therapy builds upon this intelligence by producing a light beam that emits its own biophotons to stimulate healing. When this laser light is absorbed by the body, cells respond by engaging their own healing processes: energy (ATP), nutrient, and oxygen permeability are restored to cells. This allows for deeper and faster healing of a variety of acute and chronic injuries and other painful and inflammatory conditions. These include, but are not limited to:

Post-Surgical Trauma
Neuropathy and Myelopathy
Degenerative and Acute Disc Disease
Herniated disc, ruptured disc, degenerative disc disease
Soft Tissue Injuries

Myofascial Pain
Skin problems
Herpes (shingles)

Since light therapy helps rejuvenate the health and functionality of cells, it is also useful for long term cosmetic applications, as it increases blood flow and collagen production.

Cold lasers are an extremely safe and effective treatment, with few contraindications. If you have a history of cancer, epilepsy, or hyperthyroidism, cold laser therapy is not recommended. Also, do not expose light to the retina or abdomen during pregnancy.

In our office we use the Apollo Laser due to its efficacy and power strength. Using pure infrared laser energy, a session may take as little as 1-4 minutes! Whether your issue is therapeutic or cosmetic, cold laser therapy is a great way to rejuvenate damaged and slow healing tissue. Schedule your appointment today!
