What Type of Laser is Used in Low Level Therapy?
Most people are familiar with what are known as “hot lasers.” These are the kind of laser is used in tattoo removal, skin treatment, and even for industrial purposes. Low Level Therapy uses what is known as a cold laser.
These lasers function by generating specific wavelengths of light rather than strong source of heat. Instead of working by damaging unwanted tissue with a high-impact laser, these lasers stimulate the surrounding tissue in order to help relieve pain.
