How Does Low-Level Laser Therapy Work?
Low-level laser therapy involves the use of specialist light therapy equipment that is administered by a qualified clinician. It can assist in the reduction of pain and inflammation, through exposing cells and tissues to red and near-infrared light. The therapy stimulates healing rates, repairs and promotes the regeneration of healthy nerves and tissues. What differentiates LLT from other forms of laser therapies is the low-level aspect, it uses a cold laser. However, it is not to be confused with non-ablative laser therapies (hot, high-intensity lasers), commonly used in aesthetical medical procedures to prevent wrinkles and scars also known as photorejuvenation.
With LLLT, when the beam hits the affected area, it reduces inflammation and relieves pain, promoting restoration and functionality. This is achieved by altering the cellular redox state which induces the activation of intracellular signalling pathways, thus rejuvenating the skin.
