FAQ

How does it work?

As soon as the light of a specific wavelength penetrates the skin and reaches damaged tissues that are targeted, it’s absorbed by light-sensitive elements of the cell in a process that’s similar to photosynthesis in plants. When the absorbed light is converted to usable energy that leads to reduced inflammation, pain relief, enhanced immune response and a faster healing time.

What will my treatment be like?

It depends on what you’re coming in for. Each session is typically between 5 – 10 minutes. We recommend coming in two or more times a week. Your frequency and duration of treatment depend on the severity of your symptoms and other variables.

Is LLLT painful?

No, this treatment is non-invasive and patients typically don’t feel any sensation while receiving LLLT.

Are there any contraindications?

If you are pregnant or have cancer you cannot receive the treatment.
