Cold Laser Therapy uses therapeutic wavelengths of light to penetrate tissue and assist the body in healing. Low level lasers supply energy to the body in the form of low level photons of light. Light is transmitted through the layers of the skin at wavelengths in the visible range. When light waves penetrate deeply into the skin, they assist the the immune responses of our blood. This has both anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects. Light transmitted to the blood in this way has positive effects throughout the body, supplying oxygen and energy to cells. It is believed that due to the low skin absorption and no side effects, that laser light can penetrate into tissues and reach the site of damage or injury.
