How Does Laser Light Heal?
The ML830 Laser is a non-thermal laser capable of penetrating deep into tissue. Once delivered, the light energy promotes the process of photobiostimulation. In human tissue the resulting photochemical reaction produces an increase in the cellular metabolism rate that expedites cell repair and stimulation of the immune, lymphatic, and vascular systems. The net result, observed in clinical trials to date, is the apparent reduction in pain, inflammation, edema and an overall reduction in healing time.
Cold laser therapy supplies energy to the body in the form of non-thermal photons of light. Light is transmitted through the skins layers at all wavelengths in the visible range. However, light waves in the near infrared ranges penetrate the deepest of all. When the cold laser light waves penetrate deeply into the skin, they optimize the immune responses of our blood. This has both an anti-inflammatory and immunostimulate effects. It is a scientific fact that light transmitted to the blood in this way has positive effects throughout the whole body , supplying vital oxygen and energy to every cell.
Healing with the use of light is not new. Light therapy was reported to be effective for many conditions by Hippocrates. With the development of the laser and its special properties, using light as a treatment has gained more popularity. This is because we can now use specific wavelengths of light and give accurately measured doses of energy directly to the appropriate treatment site, which was not possible with other light sources.
