How Does Cold Laser Treatment Work?

Laser therapy on foot

When the light source is placed against the skin, photons penetrate several centimeters down and are absorbed by the mitochondria (the energy producing part of a cell). This energy results in the restoration of normal cell function.

 

The main goal of laser therapy is to stimulate the cell to perform its natural functions, but at an enhanced rate. 

 

Over multiple sessions, cell functionality increases, which helps in healthy tissue growth. As cells and tissues become healthier, entire systems, as well as the body as a whole becomes healthier.
