Cold laser therapy utilizes wavelengths of light to fuse with skin tissue and is proven to alleviate pain and accelerate healing. A cold laser is a handheld device that is flashlight-sized and is applied directly above the injured area of the body for a specific period of time - usually 30 seconds to 120 seconds. The time required is largely dependent on the area being treated and the dose registered within the cold laser device. While the cold laser therapy device is on, non-thermal photons of light have emitted that pass through the various skin layers and can penetrate 2 to 5 centimeters underneath the skin. As the damaged cells absorb the energy from the laser’s lights, they work to reduce pain, swelling, inflammation, and edema.
