What is systemic Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)?
LASER is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Laser light has a narrow frequency and is coherent. It stimulates the photo receptors and modulates enzymatic activity of cells.
Systemic low level laser therapy is a form of photo-bio-modulation. Systemic Low Level Laser Therapy or Cold Laser therapy is the application of specific wavelengths of coherent laser light to blood to initiate a healing response.
In our clinic we use lasers with a wavelength of 633nm (RED), 532nm (GREEN) and 405nm (BLUE), which have a distinctly different effect on the body's metabolism, immune system, endocrine system and autonomic nervous system.
Our lasers for systemic LLLT have a power output of just 1- 5mW.Laser light is applied intravenously with the help of a light catheter to the blood, which disseminates to all cells, tissues and organs. Systemic LLLT is safe,
non-heat producing and gentle, stimulating the body's own healing response.

Low level intravenous light therapy has also been used to increase stamina and endurance in athletes and sports people. Its success was such that it was investigated by the National Anti-Doping Agency.
It has however been approved for use by professional athletes.
