Cold laser therapy is low-intensity laser therapy that stimulates healing while using low levels of light. Laser therapy uses focused light tuned to specific wavelengths, turning it into powerful beams.
It is called cold laser therapy because compared to other forms of laser therapy, the low levels of light aren’t enough to heat your body’s tissue.
How does cold laser therapy work?
During this procedure which typically takes only a few minutes, different wavelengths and outputs of low-level light are applied directly to a targeted area. As the body tissue absorbs the light, the red and near-infrared light cause a reaction, and the damaged cells respond with a physiological reaction that promotes regeneration.
Does cold laser therapy hurt?
Although you’ll feel the laser device touching your skin, the procedure is painless and noninvasive. There will be no sound, and you’ll feel no vibration or heat.
