We have found Low Level Laser Therapy for Bell’s palsy highly effective for helping to heal from this condition. Patients experiencing numbness and paralysis in their face for many months or even years, tell us that Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBM) has led to grater sensation and the ability to move muscles which were previously paralysed. People who take Therapeutic Laser treatments early in the healing process also report steady improvement in their facial movements.

Bell’s palsy usually results from inflammation in the facial nerve after an infection, virus or injury. The facial nerve travels from the brain close to the ear before entering the face where it then splits into five branches. Bell’s palsy may affect all or some of the branches and to varying degrees. During the recovery some parts of the face may start to move sooner than others.

Course of Laser Therapy for Bell’s palsy

Low Level Laser Therapy works through a process of Photobiomodulation to set off a chain of biological events in the tissue, which helps to speed up healing. Laser Therapy reduces inflammation, increases blood flow and raises mitochondrial energy – which is why it is a perfect modality to help resolve Bell’s palsy. Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBM) also helps release endorphins into the blood stream, which can ease symptoms of depression and anxiety, which are naturally associated with Bell’s palsy.

  • Therapeutic Laser treatments for Bell’s palsy are non-invasive, and without sensation.
  • One session lasts around 30 – 40 minutes.
  • We recommend a course of 3 sessions initially, around one week apart.
  • Our protocols involve applying Low Level Laser to the facial nerve and affected muscles.
  • We also balance the lymphatic system to encourage the distribution of white blood cells and improve the immune system function.
