We use Erchonia PL 3000 Cold Lasers:
The PL3000 is a variable frequency (1hz-1,000hz), single diode 3LT® 635nm wavelength laser.
Physiological affects are inflammation reduction, pain reduction, and accelerated tissue healing simutaneously.
Questions and Answers:
Low-level laser therapy is the use of low intensity photonic energy as a treatment modality.
Photonic stimuli excite the body’s cells infusing them with energy, with the three primary reactions being, reduction of inflammation, cell regeneration, and increased blood flow.
The potential applications of low-level laser are almost limitless, however; to date Erchonia has received market clearance for Neck and Shoulder Pain. Erchonia continues to conduct clinical trials on other applications.
Low level laser therapy is a non-invasive, fast and effective modality that has been proven in clinical trials to reduce pain, reduce edema, and promote healing.
Low level laser therapy has is very safe
The depth of penetration is dependent on multiple factors including mass and density, however since low-level laser has been proven in clinical studies to effect subcutaneous cells; the point is low-level laser, does penetrate; as opposed to the heat lamp devices that do not.
No, most people do not feel anything. For those that have reported a feeling, it is nothing more than a slight tingling.
The mechanics of low low-level laser therapy is administered is based on the indication for use; however, the general process is the probe containing the laser diode(s) are held in place or moved gently over the treatment area at a distance of anywhere from 4” – 12.”
This is dependent of the application; however, progress is immediately evident.
Erchonia 3LT® devices used electric diodes, which are high end, culminated and strictly measured within a plus/minus .05%. LEDs are inexpensive, non-focused wide range light sources. The primary difference is in performance and depth of penetration. Laser diodes penetrate, working subcutaneously, LEDs do not affecting the surface only.
