There are many benefits of cold laser therapy. It is considered safe, has no known side effects, and doesn’t cause pain during or after treatment. This therapy is also non-invasive and doesn’t require recovery time after the procedure, allowing patients to schedule it into their everyday routines without having to accommodate downtime. Some of the largest benefits of low-level laser therapy include faster-wound healing and pain reduction for patients whose surgical laser procedures include low-level laser treatment.
One of the main drawbacks of cosmetic laser surgery and other cosmetic procedures is that they are typically invasive and come with associated risks. This unique laser therapy doesn’t use heat and is not invasive. It works by exposing the cells to photon energy, which increases the metabolism of the cells. The increased cell metabolism contributes to collagen development, tissue repair, increased blood circulation, and increased immune system function. There are no known risks associated with cold-laser therapy. The lasers penetrate only the top layers of the skin, leaving the underlying layers untouched.
Relieves Pain and Increases Healing
Many cosmetic procedures cause short-term pain and require anesthetic to be used during the procedure. This laser therapy is unique in that it is completely painless and has been shown to relieve pain in patients who have chronic conditions such as arthritis. The light energy from the laser is absorbed by the skin cells in the area that is under treatment. This energy reduces inflammation and pain in the treated area. It also helps the cells repair themselves faster by accelerating collagen synthesis and stimulating fibroblast development.
Rejuvenates the Skin
Many patients have experienced the benefits of cold-laser treatment for skin rejuvenation. The laser permeates only the top layers of your skin, leaving the other layers undisturbed. The light sends a message to the cells and protein enzymes, which causes the cells in your skin to increase their production of energy. The light from the laser also stimulates an increase in the production of collagen. Laser therapy using cold lasers has been shown to reduce the occurrence of acne and increases skin tone in most patients. It’s also shown to be effective against wrinkles, sun damage, sun spots, and other signs of aging. Cold lasers have also been shown to reduce symptoms of fungus, psoriasis, and eczema.
No Side Effects
Cold lasers don’t penetrate the skin deep enough to cause damage, nor do they work by applying heat like traditional lasers. There are no known side effects of cold-laser therapy, making it a risk-free option for patients looking for effective treatment with no downtime.
