How Does Cold Laser Light Therapy Work

Essentially cold laser light therapy involves introducing light photons to the skin through a wand containing multiple diodes that discharge light. The photons penetrate the skin passing through the damaged tissue and inducing chemical changes in the cell's mitochondria.  These chemical changes prompt mitochondria to produce more adenosine triphosphate. This compound is thought to heal injured tissues.  However, the light must be a specific wavelength to stimulate the healing process. Cold Light Laser Therapy requires 600-1000 nanometer wavelength. This range causes blood flow to increase and enhances the healing of damaged tissues.
