How Lasers Heal
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) has been used for decades in the medical profession to improve soft tissue healing and to relieve both acute and chronic pain. Unlike surgical lasers which cut and cauterize, low level laser therapy uses cold (subthermal) laser light energy to produce a healing effect called biostimulation.
Biostimulation from laser energy accelerates healing by causing an increase in circulation, collagen formation, lymphatic drainage, and osteoblastic activity (bone growth). Other clinical effects include muscle relaxation, pain relief, nerve regeneration, immune system stimulation, and bacterial/viral elimination.
