More about LLLT


LLLT uses therapeutic lasers to deliver a wavelength of monochromatic light into the targeted tissue. These light particles known as photons stimulate the mitochondria in the target cells, causing an increased production rate of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which provides cells energy in order to heal tissue at accelerated rates.

Therapeutic laser systems are athermic (no heat) making them incapable of causing tissue damage. As well, cells have a natural ability to resist over-stimulation, meaning it is not possible to harm tissue by overdosing, as long a you use a therapeutic laser that is used in the therapeutic window and remains below the Maximum permissible Exposure (MPE) of tissue.


LLLT is painless and is well tolerated by most animals and conditions. During more than 35 years of clinical use, it has never resulted in a serious side effect.
