K-laser Therapy Treatment Questions and Answers
Q: Why should you try this treatment?
A: It is Low-Risk, Non-invasive and the short answer is IT GETS RESULTS. Not to be compared with a resurfacing laser or dermal remodeling but more like a rejuvenation that increases blood flow. Using it itself OR in combination with our (IR) Infrared Body wraps, Thor and Cold-Laser treatments is a non-surgical, painless (many patients report immediately feeling better), effective, medication-free way to assist or solve your pain problems.
Q: What are the benefits and successes?
A: Class III Cold Laser used to relieve inflammation and aid in the healing of soft tissues like ligament, tendon, wound care and muscle. The “Cold” part of the cold laser means that it does not generate as high of levels of heat typical in more powerful Class IV lasers (used for surgery or even hair removal). This unique and rare modality helps ligaments and tendons heal – even though these connective tissues have a poor blood supply, and heal slowly (or not at all). Cold lasers like these speed the healing process and reduce edema (swelling) by helping cells in injured tissue produce more energy. Happening at the sub-cell level, the mitochondria, where ATP (cellular energy chemical) is produced. Having more energy available for the tissues, thus they are able to perform activities such as getting rid of inflammation much better and healing. In addition to just increasing blood flow to the injured area – this will help “wash away” metabolic waste and reduce inflammation.
Q: How long has laser therapy for pain management been around?
A: First discovered in 1967, laser-therapies have been used in Europe much longer than in the USA. The US FDA first cleared therapy laser in 2002 and Class IV lasers in 2003. At our Pittsburgh Pennsylvania locations we previously solely used the k-laser but have found better modalities and continue to better our practice.
Q: What are the contraindications to an Infrared treatment?
A: NEVER look at the laser beam and ALWAYS wear safety goggles when in the presence of machine operation. 3b class lasers are potentially harmful to the retina – through damage is very unlikely. Do not treat directly over a known cancerous tumor, gravid uterus or thyroid tissue.
