What is Cold Laser Therapy?

“Cold” lasers are called such because they employ low-level infrared and near-infrared light. At these wavelengths, lasers trigger your cells and promote accelerated healing without damaging your soft tissues. Another name for this therapy is Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT).

Cold laser therapy uses low levels of energy or photons that penetrate deep into a painful tissue. The light leads to chemical changes that help damaged cells recover and regrow. The physician uses a handheld device the size of a flashlight and places it directly on the injured area for about 1 minute.
