How does it work?
When tissues are irradiated with lasers, near infrared, the tissue absorbs the light resulting in changes to the tissue at a cellular level. Lasers increase energy production within a cell and also increase DNA production. This increases cellular health and promotes healing, while reducing inflammation; stimulate nerve regeneration, muscle relaxation and immune responses. Lasers have no effect on normal tissues, as the light is only absorbed and utilized by the cells that need them.
