Laser therapy is a process where light energy Photons enters the tissue and is absorbed by the mitochondria and the cell membrane. Mitochondria are the cell’s power centers. They allow the cell to move and divide.
Light photons act as “food” or “fuel” for your cells. Just like a plant’s photosynthesis process, your cells use the energy to grow, repair themselves and multiply. Photonic energy is converted to chemical energy within the cells of your tissue. Cell membrane permeability alters, then physical changes occur and your body begins to heal itself.
When natural light is passed through one end of a prism the result at the other end is a rainbow. Each color in that rainbow has its own wavelength or colour signature. Each type of laser also has its own wavelength or color. A device which emits a Visible Red (VR) light has a different wavelength than an Infra-Red (Invisible Red) laser. 4 5.
A laser’s light wavelength determines how deep the light will penetrate into your body. Infra-red wavelengths will penetrate deeper, and so are used for deep tissue injuries. Visible red wavelengths do not penetrate as far, and are used more for surface conditions.
We use the Apollo 3000 class 4 laser is the most powerful and deep-penetrating laser available in the market today.
