What to Expect During Laser Therapy
During a laser treatment, a healthcare provider will aim a handheld device at the area of your body that is being treated.
The device delivers a beam of concentrated light that penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the tissue beneath.
You may feel a warm sensation during the treatment, but it should not be painful. Each session lasts for a few minutes, and most people require several sessions to see results.
Laser treatment can be beneficial for a variety of reasons. Below are some of the most important that you should know about before considering laser therapy.
Improved blood circulation
Laser therapy will help stimulate your body's natural healing processes by improving blood circulation.
Laser therapy can be used to help reduce pain throughout your body by using low-power laser irradiation.
