The Theralase superpulsed laser system can penetrate up to 4 inches into tissue, to promote cellular regeneration at the source of injury. Laser energy helps to repair damaged cells by accelerating the body’s natural healing mechanisms. Depending on the severity of the injury, your patient can return to an active lifestyle pain-free within a few weeks versus months or years of life altering pain. Non-thermal laser therapy benefits patients including promoting wound healing, reducing inflammation, and reducing pain right at the source.
A growing number of private insurance plans also cover laser therapy when administered by a healthcare professional. Not only are laser treatments effective, they can be completed in only 10 minutes, making them ideal as additions to your existing patient treatment plans.
LLLT is painless and is well tolerated by patients of all ages and conditions. During more than 35 years of clinical use, it has never resulted in a serious side effect. Therapeutic laser systems are athermic (no heat) and therefore incapable of causing tissue damage. As well, cells have a natural ability to resist over-stimulation, meaning it is not possible to harm tissue by overdosing, as long a you use a therapeutic laser that is used in the therapeutic window and remains below the Maximum permissible Exposure (MPE) of tissue.
