COLD LASER FAQ's
How does Cold Laser Therapy Work?
Cold laser therapy uses light photons that are introduced to your skin with a wand that contains several light-emitting diodes. As the photons enter your skin and pass through injured tissue, chemical changes to the mitochondria of the cells occur, signaling them to increase the production of adenosine triphosphate. This is theorized to cause positive healing to those tissues.
What to Expect.
During your session, a small wand with light-emitting diodes is applied directly to your skin on each treatment area for 30 to 120 seconds. You and your practitioner may wear special goggles to shield your eyes during the treatment.
What do I wear?
Treatment area: Low back, hip, leg, foot
Please wear loose fit, elastic waist band shorts
Treatment area: mid and upper back, shoulders, neck
Men, please wear loose fitting t-shirt
Women, please wear a sports bra and loose fitting t-shirt
You may be given the option to wear a hospital gown and or/medical shorts, which are provided for you.
What does Cold Laser feel like?
For most people, there is little or no sensation during treatment, though you may feel a mild, soothing warmth. Laser treatment is relaxing.
When treating certain chronic conditions (i.e. tendonitis, tissue damage), pain can increase or begin 6-24 hours after a treatment session. This is normal and expected, as your body’s natural tissue repair process has been induced.
How many sessions will I need?
Laser therapy produces results quickly. Immediate effects can often be felt after the first visit. For most acute conditions, 2-3 treatments are all you will need. Chronic conditions take longer and might require 6 - 12 treatments. While these are the averages, each person is unique and healing time varies by person and condition. For those with chronic conditions, a 1-2 month follow-up maintenance schedule is also recommended.
How long are the sessions?
Sessions generally last no more than 10 minutes, when treating a single area and up to 20 minutes when treating multiple areas.
PLEASE NOTE: Cold laser therapy is a cumulative process and takes a minimum of 3-6 session for best results.
