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.
Most clinics 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.
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.
