Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a form of cold laser that can effectively target muscles and tissues to promote natural healing. This amazing therapy has numerous applications—it can have a positive impact on nearly any health challenge, condition, or disease. Because LLLT can improve micro-circulation, immune function, relaxation, detoxification, and so much more, it has virtually endless possibilities for healing and health promotion.
How Low-Level Laser Therapy Works
LLLT is also known as cold laser therapy or photobiomodulation therapy. LLLT is a type of light therapy designed to repair tissue, reduce pain and inflammation, mobilize fat, and provide other benefits for overall health improvement. During a treatment regimen, we place a small device over the target area that emits unique wavelengths of light at different frequencies. The low-level laser light penetrates the tissue without heating or damaging the skin, causing cells to respond with a physiological reaction that promotes healing.
Benefits of Low-Level Laser Therapy
Unlike traditional lasers that use around 300 watts, cold lasers use between 5 and 500 milliwatts. Because of this low wattage, LLLT does not burn the skin or produce heat, pain, or scarring of any type. The only thing you might feel is the touch of the device against your skin! The researched benefits of LLLT include:
- Reduced pain of all forms
- Improved sleep
- Better circulation
- Boosted nerve regeneration
- Improved wound healing
- Stronger immunity
- Stronger bones

Almost anyone is a great candidate for LLLT, as it is noninvasive, painless, and requires no medication, preparation, or downtime. While patients with carcinomas or cancerous lesions may not be ideal candidates for LLLT, we will assess your unique concerns during your consultation and recommend the right course of treatment for you. You may consider LLLT if you want to treat:
- Aches and pains
- Skin conditions such as acne scarring, psoriasis, and more

The number of these treatments varies from person to person depending on your health goals. We will craft a customized plan for you during your consultation to help you feel your best.
Simply relax while we pass a handheld device over the target areas of your body that you wish to treat. Treatments last no more than 30 minutes; it often does not touch the skin, so you could take that out. The light can pass through clothes, but it is ideal to treat directly over the skin.
