A therapeutic approach that use a safe, warm laser light that penetrates deeply to help reduce inflammation, speed healing, and relieve pain. Class IV Laser Therapy does not require the use of drugs or surgery, and there are no dangerous side effects or risks. In addition, Class IV Laser Therapy provides enhanced treatment outcomes faster than any other treatment modality.
The Class IV Laser Therapy produces results quickly. For most acute conditions, 5-6 treatments is all that is needed. Chronic conditions take longer and might require 6-12 treatments. While these are the averages, each person is unique and healing time varies by person and condition. For those with lifelong conditions your doctor may recommend 1 or 2 follow-up treatments each month.
All light is composed of photons. Photons are small packets of light energy—in the form of waves— with a defined wavelength and frequency. Photon energy is able to more effectively penetrate the skin and underlying structures, therefore accelerating the healing process. Light travels at a constant speed and oscillate up and down as it moves forward.
However, all light is not the same. It is measured in wavelengths, with each wavelength of light representing a different color of the spectrum. The number of oscillations per second represents the frequency of each wavelength; shorter waves have a greater frequency than longer waves.
Laser energy is coherent (well-ordered photons), monochromatic (single-color) light energy. When produced as a narrow, bright beam. Laser light holds its intensity until it is absorbed by a medium (the body). When applied to an organism, Laser light, tuned to specific wavelengths and frequencies, stimulates metabolic processes at the cellular level.
