What is Low Level Laser Therapy?

Low-Level Laser Therapy a.k.a “Cold Laser” is the use of laser/LED light to reduce pain and promote tissue healing. Light therapy works on the body’s cells and seeks to treat the underlying causes of pain rather than simply masking it. It is painless, non-invasive and has no side effects.

There is a large amount of evidence spanning over 30 years which proves many beneficial effects across a broad range of medical conditions. With regard to pain specifically,  laser relieves pain by first blocking pain nerves and reducing inflammation in and around the painful area. Within 3-4 treatments better blood circulation, less inflammation and revitalised cells means your body can start to heal. Indeed some of the research shows this therapy is at least as effective as NSAIDS (anti-inflammatory drugs) with no side-effects.

The basic science: When laser light (or LED’s) are applied to the skin the damaged cells in the injured or painful area (below the skins surface) absorb the light and convert it into energy. As that energy (ATP) is restored to the cell, oxidative stress is reduced and this instigates the body’s healing response.Cold-Laser-Therapy-Beauty and Laser Clinic MANLY SYDNEY northern beaches
