How Does it Work?
During the treatment some patients feel gentle warmth or tingling sensation, but most patients feel nothing during treatment. Warmth may be felt due to vasodilatation and the cascade of cellular events that occur.
When the photons of light penetrate the skin and underlying tissue, they are absorbed by the cell, and converted into energy; thereby the cell membrane permeability is altered, triggering a cascade of cellular events including:
- Stimulation of ATP
- Stimulation of respiratory chain
- Increased DNA and RNA synthesis
- Increased levels of beta endorphins and serotonin
- Enhanced collagen synthesis
The laser stimulates and energizes the cells to repair and strengthen at a remarkably fast rate. Laser does not wear off like most medicines because of its curative healing power. Laser promotes true healing and if you don’t re-injure the area, the pain should not return.
