The Laser

The Story Behind The Laser

Our laser process is called Photobiomodulation.

Photobiomodulation is formerly known as Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT).

In addition to increasing the speed, quality, and tensile strength of tissue repair, photobiomodulation can resolve inflammation and relieve pain (analgesia).

Photobiomodulation (PBM) is a new term used to refer to the application of red and near-infrared light over injured tissues to promote wound, soft tissue, and joint healing, reduce inflammation, and relieve acute and chronic pain. It was first developed in 1967 and is now known as PBM.

A laser or high-intensity LED can produce the red and near-infrared light commonly used in PBM (600nm-1000nm). Unlike surgical lasers, PBM lasers and LEDs do not have a high intensity. Therefore, they do not produce any heat.

PBM has a photochemical effect (similar to photosynthesis in plants). Red and near infrared light can reduce oxidative stress and increase ATP levels with the correct intensity and treatment time.

As a result, inflammation is reduced, and cell metabolism is improved. Pulses can enhance these effects. However, when analgesia is required, a second mechanism works best when a strong continuous beam is used.
