What is Laser Therapy?

Therapeutic medical lasers heal tissue ailments by injecting billions of photons of invisible laser light deep into the tissues.

Human tissue naturally contains protein strands called chromophores, which have the unique ability to absorb laser light energy and transform it into chemical energy. This chemical energy is used by the body to significantly reduce pain. 

Is Laser Therapy safe?

Clinical studies show that laser therapy achieves excellent outcomes in wound healing, reduction of inflammation and side-effect-free pain relief.

Lumix laser therapy is painless, non-ablative, non-invasive and does not cause and trauma or damage to the treated tissues. 

How does Laser Therapy work?

Lumix therapeutic lasers work by supplying energy to the body in the form of photons of light and allowing the body to make its own repairs. Lumix lasers load light energy into the cells and organize energetic and biochemical interactions that promote and support pain relief, cell regeneration, and collagen and new tissue formation. 

This process also reduces inflammation, improves blood flow, and accelerates healing. 

In general, the biostimulating effects of Lumix laser therapy are from its analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-edematous effects. 

What can I expect from laser treatment?

Painless relief

Some patients report a slight sense of warmth or lightness as circulation is improved and muscles relax, others report no particular sensation during Lumix laser treatment. 

No side effects

Lumix laser therapy facilitates the natural healing responses of the body, and does not add any biochemical, mechanical or neurological stress to the healing process. The only "side effects" of laser therapy are the natural effects of healing: the return of function and mobility in damaged joints and muscles, the return of sensation in damaged nerves, and the reduction of pain. 

Quick results

Some patients experience pain relief, increased mobility, improved strength, or other symptom relief from the first treatment, while others experience relief hours or days later, or even only after the 2nd or 3rd treatment. The amount of pain or severity of injury, the amount of time since the symptom began, and the cause of symptoms all affect the speed of results. Since there are no biochemical side effects blocking the body's response to the light therapy, Lumix laser therapy tends to produce faster, and more progressive relief than many alternative therapies. 

Benefits

Rapid Pain Relief

The laser light of Lumix increases blood flow to damaged areas and accelerates the body's natural repair process.

Anti-Inflammatory Action

Lumix laser reduces swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints to give enhanced joint mobility and reduced pain. 

Reduced Scar Tissue

Lumix laser reduces the formation of scar tissue following damage from cuts, scratches, acne, or burns and post-surgery. 

Improved Nerve Function

Slow recovery of nerve function in damaged tissue can result in areas of reduced sensitivity and feeling, risking further injury. Lumix laser speeds nerve repair to restore feeling to these numbed areas. 

Faster Wound Healing

Lumix laser accelerates the development of new cells for skin, muscles, blood vessels, bone and nerves, reducing the time to return to health and activity.
