Is Cold Laser Therapy Painful?
No. Laser therapy is non-invasive, it does not break the skin or cause burns. Most people do not feel anything, while some have reported a slight tingling or warming sensation over the area being treated. Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is also known as Cold Laser Therapy. The FDA approved LLLT in 2002. High powered lasers are used in the medical field to cut or destroy tissue.
How Does Low Level Laser Therapy Work?
Laser therapy causes vasodilation, an increase in the size of small arteries and lymph vessels, this allows inflammation, swelling, and edema to be cleared from an injury site more effectively. The laser also stimulates light sensitive structures in your cells triggering a series of events within the cells leading to enhanced cell function and accelerate the healing process.
TARGET (Treatment Area Recognition and Guidance Enhanced Technology) Technology
The treatment found on the M4 Super Pulsed LaserStim is the first and only FDA-cleared device to use electric stimulation and laser in a single device. It is able to target areas of spasm both superficial and deep by constantly measuring the electroconductivity of the tissue. This helps to assist in identifying the optimal treatment location.
