How are treatments administered?
Treatments are performed by positioning the laser hand-piece approximately 1/2″ directly above the skin and surrounding the area of injury and pain with the laser treatment beam.
How many treatments are needed?
The Class IV Laser Therapy produces results quickly. For most acute conditions, 5-6 treatments is all that is needed. Chronic conditions take longer and might require 6-12 treatments. While these are the averages, each person is unique and healing time varies by person and condition. For those with lifelong conditions your doctor may recommend 1 or 2 follow-up treatments each month.
Is Class IV Laser Therapy safe without side effects?
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has been in use for over thirty years around the world. There have been almost no side effects reported. Occasionally some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few days, as the healing response becomes more active after a treatment.
How long will a treatment take?
Depending on the condition, treatment times for this drug-free, non-invasive procedure will last on average 5-10 minutes but is based on the size of the area, depth of the penetration needed, and condition being treated.
Will the treatment hurt?
Most patients notice a warm, often soothing feeling. There is no pain associated with a treatment. Many patients experience pain relief, reduced muscle tension and tightness, reduced inflammation, and improved range of motion.
When can normal activity begin again?
The moment a person leaves the clinic, they may resume normal daily activity. It is important for patients to remember to not overexert themselves for a few days, as the body is still healing.
Will insurance cover treatments?
This depends on your insurance provider. If insurance does not cover the cost of treatments, your practice may have affordable payment plans available.
How does Class IV Laser Therapy work?
When the photons of laser tight penetrate the skin and underlying tissue, they are absorbed by the cells, and converted into energy. The cell membrane permeability is altered, which triggers 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
What advantage does Class IV Laser Therapy have over other forms of treatment?
Class IV Laser Therapy does not require the use of drugs or surgery, and there are no dangerous side effects or risks. In addition, Class IV Laser Therapy provides enhanced treatment outcomes faster than any other treatment modality.
How is Class IV Laser Therapy better than “Cold Laser Therapy” treatments?
Cold Laser Therapy (or LLLT – Low Level Light Therapy) was introduced into the USA in 2001 with low power levels. Since that time new scientific and clinical discoveries have led to the development of the higher power lasers, including the new Class IV Laser Therapy.
