Cold laser treatment or cold laser therapy involves the use of low-intensity lasers than emit significantly lower levels of light than traditional lasers. Hence, this therapy stimulates healing inside the tissue without heating or damaging the patient’s skin.
It is called ‘cold’ because the low-intensity lasers do not heat your body’s tissue, as compared to surgical or aesthetic lasers. Cold laser therapy is also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT). It has been a subject of research in the medical community since 1967.
During the procedure, the laser is applied directly to the target area. The light stimulates the cells and promotes inner healing. It is a non-invasive and painless process that can be performed at an outpatient clinic.
