The laser uses light at specific wavelengths to accelerate the healing process. When cells absorb light energy, a series of events in the cell begin to increase intracellular metabolism and stimulate healing. Compromised cells respond better than healthy cells to photochemical reactions; laser therapy enhances wound healing and tissue regeneration and reduces acute inflammation.
Laser light has a beneficial effect on nerve cells which helps to block pain signals to the brain, making laser therapy ideal for helping acute and chronic pain sufferers.
The laser is a cold laser; no heat is generated by its use. The system is approved by the U.S. FDA for use on animals as a Class IIIb laser and has been imported into New Zealand specifically for my practice.
