Low Level Laser Therapy

 

What is low level laser therapy (LLLT)?

  • LLLT work by emitting a very specific light that is invisible to the naked eye directed towards small areas of the target tissue.
  • This specific light energy stimulates cells in the desired area to respond in a way that increases our body's own natural mechanisms. 
  • These mechanisms increase cellular and tissue repair and decreases the amount of sensitivity and pain in the area.
