Laser therapy helps in the reduction of edema, inflammation and pain.
Laser therapy for pain works as a high power wavelength infrared laser in a single beam.
How Does it Feel on the Skin?
When the beam touches the skin, there is very little sensation felt. Some patients may feel some mild soothing warmth or even a small amount of tingling in the specific area.
The areas of inflammation and pain may feel sensitive for just a little while before the pain begins to subside.
As technology advances, the timeframe for Laser therapy will be reduced and the affects will be more noticeable.
Is It Safe?
Laser Therapy is 100% Approved By the FDA.
It is suggested that both the patient and the person performing the procedure wear goggles, in order to protect your eyes from retina damage and other eye disorders. This will only happen if there is direct exposure to the eyes.
