We’ve added K-Laser therapy to our practice because we want to provide a safe and effective treatment option for our patients to heal quickly, recover fully, and reduce pain effectively.
K-Laser is the Leader in Class IV power, featuring therapeutic wavelengths that are effective and safe for all skin tones.
How Does it Work?
The human body reacts to light: when exposed to sunlight, our skin turns darker, vitamin D is boosted, larger quantities of serotonin (the “hormone of happiness”) are released in the
brain – just to mention some. These reactions are mediated by molecules that react to light.
Over 50 years of research have unraveled which wavelengths of light can be damaging (UV light for example) and which trigger positive reactions. These bio-medical findings have been merged with advanced LASER technology to produce medical devices able to optimise the positive effects of light stimulation.
Laser therapy uses selected wavelengths of light to stimulate key molecules in tissues. This activates a cascade of photochemical reactions that boosts cellular metabolism, also improving circulation, oxygenation and absorption of nutrients. This creates an optimal healing environment for tissues to recover. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved. Laser therapy is proven successful on a vast range of applications – from acute injuries to chronic pain, fungal nail infections and even verrucae.
It is a safe and non-invasive technique that promotes the body’s own reparative processes.
What Happens During Treatment?
Laser light will be shone on the skin surface from a probe, over and around the condition site. Treatments will be repeated at regular intervals depending on the condition we are treating. The only sensation you will feel is warmth.
