We’ve put together answers to some commonly asked questions within our Laser Therapy FAQs.

Is Low Level Laser Therapy effective?

Low Level Laser Therapy is the therapeutic application of Laser light at a low intensity. Laser photons are transformed into added cellular energy within the mitochondria, which causes therapeutic change. Research and many clinical trials prove that Low Level Laser Therapy increases cellular ATP (body fuel) by as much as 150%. Low Level Laser Therapy has no effect on normal tissue. Photons are only taken up by the cells that need them. A qualified Low Level Laser Therapy professional is trained to apply the most effective Laser wavelength and frequency required for specific medical conditions.

Is Low Level Laser Therapy safe?

As Low Level Laser is applied you will not feel anything, at the very most, a slight warmth on the surface of the skin. At Laser Medicine we use Class 3b and LED Class 1C devices, which are Low Powered Lasers and do not fall within the Class 4 Laser category. We also use Class 4 Therapeutic Lasers in certain cases which are also very low power and do not burn, however you may feel a sensation of slight warmth as the energy is delivered to the tissue with more power than a Class 3b.

You will be asked to wear protective eye goggles during your treatment, as Class 3b and Class 4 Laser may damage eyes if directed towards them.

There are a number of contraindications with Therapeutic Laser:

  • We do not put light directly over a pregnant uterus.
  • We do not put light over any known carcinomas.
  • We do not apply light over an area that has received a steroid injection within 1 week.
  • We do not place light over an overactive thyroid gland.

Does Laser Therapy actually work?

Many of our patients report an improvement in their condition along with increased energy and general health benefits overall. There are many clinical trials reported every year, world-wide, that also indicate the successful application of Low Level Laser Therapy.

How long does a Laser Therapy session last?

Laser Medicine treatments take between 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on your condition. You lie on a comfortable treatment table covered with a warm blanket. The treatment is relaxing and painless.

What is thermal imaging?

Your therapist may use a thermal imaging device to assess areas of inflammation or congestion. The camera is held at a distance from the body and is completely non-invasive. Thermal images are stored securely and used to monitor your healing process.

Is Low Level Laser Therapy covered by insurance?

Currently in the UK Laser Therapy, to our knowledge, is not recognised by the major health insurance companies.
