Low Level Laser Therapy

Low-intensity laser or light-emitting diodes to stimulate cellular function and promote healing in the body

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

What is Low Level Laser Therapy?

LLLT, also known as cold laser therapy or Photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT), utilises low-intensity laser or light-emitting diodes to stimulate cellular function and promote healing in the body.

​The laser or light energy is applied to the targeted area, where it is absorbed by the cells.

This energy absorption triggers a series of biological responses at the cellular level! It sounds like something out of Star Wars, doesn’t it? It’s not science fiction, it’s science fact!

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

How does Low Level Laser Therapy Work?

Low Level Laser Therapy has several physiological effects on the body

Increased ATP Production

LLLT stimulates the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is the energy currency of cells. This boost in ATP production provides cells with the necessary energy to carry out their functions more efficiently.

Enhanced Blood Circulation

LLLT improves blood flow to the treated area by dilating blood vessels and increasing the formation of new capillaries. Improved blood circulation helps deliver oxygen, nutrients, and immune cells to the tissues, aiding in the healing process.

Reduction of inflammation

LLLT has anti-inflammatory effects by reducing the production of inflammatory mediators and promoting the release of anti-inflammatory substances. This helps minimise swelling, redness, and pain in the treated area.

Accelerated tissue repair and regeneration.

LLLT stimulates cellular proliferation and migration, promoting the formation of new tissue and accelerating the healing process. It also enhances collagen synthesis, which is essential for wound healing and tissue regeneration.

 Modulation of the immune response

LLLT can help regulate the immune system by modulating immune cell activity. It can enhance the function of immune cells, such as macrophages and lymphocytes, promoting a balanced immune response

Analgesic Effect

Low Level Laser Therapy has pain-relieving properties by stimulating the release of endorphins, which are natural painkillers produced by the body. It also helps reduce nerve sensitisation, providing relief from pain and discomfort.

Photobiomodulation Therapy

Low Level Therapy helps with many conditions
