Unlike lasers used in surgery or cosmetic, low level laser or cold laser emits little or no heat and is totally safe as it can not damage the tissues of the treated area . Instead, the beams of concentrated light emitted by the device enter 5 to 10 centimeters under the skin and allow regeneration of cells and a reduction of inflammation and pain.
While it is possible for the damaged cells to heal itself without the help of laser therapy, the use of cold laser can accelerate the healing process of tissues. A good example of how cold laser accelerates the healing process can be demonstrated in the case of acute soft tissue trauma. Such injury involves several elements of the layers of tissue under the skin, including muscle tissue, nervous, lymphatic and vascular tissues. The natural reaction of the human body as a result of soft tissue trauma is to contain the wound with local inflammation: Inflammation is due to a greater influx of blood in the capillaries. Classically, inflammation occurs as four main signs: redness, heat, swelling (swelling), and pain. The inflammatory mechanism involves a large number of substances in the blood, including many hormones, such as prostaglandins, histamine, and cytokines involved in the inflammation process. This prevents excessive swelling circulation in damaged tissues and results in two types of pain:
