Laser Therapy Q&A

What is laser therapy?

Laser therapy, or low-level laser therapy, is a treatment that causes cellular improvements using low-level red light. Also called cold laser therapy, low-level laser therapy is FDA-approved to treat or manage many conditions that disrupt the function of your cells. 

During the treatment, the team directs the laser near your skin’s surface. Your cells absorb the photons from the light, which stimulate healing within your tissues. This improves function at a cellular level and beyond. 

Unlike other lasers, low-level or cold lasers do not heat your tissues. They also don’t cause any vibration, pain, or pressure throughout treatment. A single laser therapy session at Nizhoni Functional Medicine takes just 15-30 minutes, and you can go home right away when you’re done. 

What are the benefits of laser therapy?

The team at Nizhoni Functional Medicine helps you review the many benefits of low-level laser therapy before you start treatment. Laser therapy has many effects on your body that lead to a number of improvements in your health and wellness. 

A few benefits to consider are:

  • Pain reduction
  • Inflammation reduction
  • Stem cell activation
  • Blood flow stimulation
  • Depigmentation reduction
  • Improved rate of recovery

Low-level lasers are also antimicrobial, which means they can kill illness-causing microorganisms like fungi and bacteria. This makes the treatment a great option for fighting short- and long-term infections and their effects on the body. 

Why do I need laser therapy?

Nizhoni Functional Medicine provides low-level laser therapy as an effective treatment option for many illnesses as well as major and minor injuries. Since the treatment stimulates healing, many of your body’s tissues, organs, and systems respond to it.
