Laser treatment or laser skin treatment is a procedure involving the use of a laser to expose any diseased or traumatised skin tissues to photons from the laser diodes. This light energy is absorbed by the cell membrane, into the cells, and through various physiological reactions helps to restore the normal structure and function of the cells. The restoration of the cells can help to completely remove any pain and it is also a great method to enhance the response of the body’s natural immune system in order to boost the healing process.
Laser therapy allows the patient to recover from musculoskeletal and peripheral nerve injuries with little to no scar tissue. Laser therapy also accelerates the regeneration of cells and helps to improve the overall function of the cells.
What is Laser Therapy?
The technology utilizes superluminous and laser diodes to irradiate diseased or traumatized tissue with photons. These particles of energy are selectively absorbed by the cell membrane and intracellular molecules, resulting in the initiation of a cascade of complex physiological reactions, leading to the restoration of normal cell structure and function.
The process is curative and therefore results in the elimination of symptoms including pain. In addition, it enhances the body’s immune system response and facilitates natural healing.
Compared to traditional treatment, patients recover from musculoskeletal and peripheral nerve injuries with less scar tissue, accelerated cell regeneration and improved function.
The Advantages of Laser Treatment
- Easily applied
- Highly effective
- No adverse effects
Laser muscle therapy is exceptionally effective in treating musculoskeletal conditions, arthritis, sports injuries, and wound healing. Laser skin treatment is also used successfully for a wide range of dermatological conditions. Research into the effectiveness of laser therapy continues and we’re sure there will more interesting developments in the future use of laser therapy. Our procedures include laser light therapy for pain relief and other conditions. Contact us today to find out more. Keep in mind that among our services, we also offer stem cell therapy, facial rejuvenation, PRP treatment and wound care.
Inflammation is a local response to cellular injury that is marked by capillary dilatation (widening of blood vessels), leukocyte infiltration, erythema, edema (swelling), pain and loss of function. It also serves as a mechanism to initiate tissue repair and eliminate damaged tissue.
Photon particles of red and infrared light (600 – 900 nm) penetrate 5-10 cm deep into tissue and are absorbed by the mitochondria inside of cells:
Inflammation is a local response to cellular injury that is marked by capillary dilatation, leukocytic infiltration, erythema, edema, pain and often loss of function. It also serves as a mechanism to initiate tissue repair and eliminate damaged tissue.
Laser Therapy Effects on Inflammation Pathway
Laser Therapy’s modulation of inflammatory mediators allows for an accelerated resolution of the inflammatory process and enhanced tissue repair.
