What is Cold Laser Treatment?

LLLT (Low Level Laser Therapy), also called cold laser therapy, is a type of phototherapy designed to repair tissue, reduce pain and inflammation, and provide other benefits for patients. During a treatment regimen, a small device emitting laser beam or visible nonthermal lasers is placed over the target area. The low levels of light penetrate the tissue without heating or damaging the skin.

Unlike traditional lasers, which use around 300 watts, cold lasers use between five and 500 milliwatts. True to their name, they don’t burn the skin or produce pain, and the FDA gives them NHN (non-heating instruments) classification. In contrast, a laser used for surgeries cuts through the skin and can lead to severe scarring and pain.

LLLT uses lasers to provide patients with relief from chronic pain by altering cellular function. By primarily targeting the enzyme cytochrome c oxidase, low-level lasers can increase ATP and reduce oxidative stress.

Cell metabolism improves, allowing patients to heal quickly from a variety of issues such as:

  • Chronic Low Back Pain
  • Chronic Neck and Shoulder Pain
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Chronic Musculoskeletal Pain
  • Brain & Nervous System
  • Leaky Gut

The FX 635 LLLT stimulates the muscles, ligaments and nerves. The body absorbs the light energy, which encourages the cell’s mitochondria to produce more ATP and promotes natural healing within the cell. Because the laser merely stimulates the cells to promote healing naturally, the FX 635 provides pain and inflammation relief with no adverse side effects.

Unlike traditional lasers, the FX 635 uses extremely low levels of light, allowing patients to enjoy the benefits of pain and inflammation reduction without the side effects associated with traditional lasers and surgery. Users remain awake throughout the entire therapy and experience no burning, scarring or downtime, allowing them to get on with the rest of their day as soon as the session is over.
