If you’ve been recommended to try cold laser therapy, know that we use the industry leading Theralase brand. Here are a few frequently asked questions about cold laser therapy.
Do Theralase lasers burn?
No. There are two general types of medical lasers: heat generating lasers which cut through tissue and damage tissue and cold lasers such as the Theralase, which stimulate tissue repair, reduce inflammation and eliminate pain.
Are Theralase lasers harmful?
No. Theralase lasers used for tissue stimulation are not strong enough to damage cells; so even if they were used 24 hours a day on your condition, they would not be able to harm you.
Do Theralase lasers work?
Yes. Theralase laser therapy is safe, effective and painless, with results which are often immediate with no side effects. Efficacy rates in excess of 90% are routinely achieved.
How do Theralase lasers work?
When laser light interacts with tissue it causes certain photochemical reactions to occur and stimulates natural biological healing processes, thus transforming light energy into chemical energy.
How long does the therapy take?
Treatment time will vary from as little as 2 minutes to as long as 20 minutes per session. The total number of treatment sessions required varies between 5 to 25 depending on your body’s natural healing rate and the severity of your condition.
