The benefits of the Class IV Laser treatment
Therapeutic lasers supply energy to the body in the form of photons of light. Light is transmitted through the skin's layers (the dermis, epidermis, and the subcutaneous tissue under the skin). However, the wavelength of the Class IV Laser allows these photons to travel deep into the body; up to 6-8 inches. The photons activate the mitochondria in your cells, the factories that produce the energy your cells utilize (ATP), creating an abundance of energy for the cell to utilize.
When damaged cells have the energy they need to function properly again, they can start the repair process. The cells now have the energy to repair themselves or to split and create a new cell. Laser therapy accelerates the healing of injured areas, decreases inflammation, and eliminates pain allowing patients to quickly return to normal activities. Laser treatment is non-invasive and provides drug free, side effect free treatment without surgery!
