Frequently Asked Questions about Class IV Laser Therapy Treatments:

lori-laser-therapyHow are treatments administered?
Treatments are performed by positioning the laser hand-piece approximately ½ inch directly above the skin and surrounding the area of injury and pain with the laser treatment beam.

How many treatments are needed?
The Class IV Laser Therapy produces results quickly. For most ACUTE conditions 5-6 treatments is all that is needed. CHRONIC conditions take longer and might require 6-12 treatments. While these are the averages, each person is unique and healing time varies by person and condition. For those with lifelong conditions your doctor may recommend 1 or 2 follow-up treatments each month.

Is Class IV Laser Therapy safe without side effects?
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has been in use for over thirty years around the world. There have been almost no side effects reported. Occasionally some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few days, as the healing response becomes more active after a laser treatment.

How long will the treatment take?
Depending on the condition, treatment times for this DRUG-FREE, NON-INVASIVE procedure will last on average 5-10 minutes but is based on the size of area, depth of penetration needed and condition being treated.

Will the treatment hurt?
Most patients notice a warm, often soothing feeling. There is no pain associated with a treatment. Many patients experience pain relief, reduced muscle tension and tightness, reduced inflammation and improved range of motion.

When can normal activity begin again?
The moment a patient leaves the clinic, they may resume normal daily activity. It is important for patients to remember to not overexert themselves for a few days, as the body is still healing.

Will insurance cover treatments?
Class IV Laser Therapy may not be covered by insurance plans. If insurance does not cover the cost of treatments, there are affordable payment plans available.

How does Class IV Laser Therapy work?
When the photons of laser light penetrate the skin and underlying tissue, they are absorbed by the cells, and converted into energy. The cell membrane permeability is altered, which triggers a cascade of cellular events including:
• Stimulation of ATP
• Stimulation of respiratory chain
• Increased DNA and RNA synthesis
• Increased levels of beta endorphins and serotonin
• Enhanced collagen synthesis

What advantage does Class IV Laser Therapy have over other forms of treatment?
Class IV Laser Therapy does not require the use of drugs or surgery, and there are no dangerous side effects or risks. In addition, Class IV Laser Therapy provides enhanced treatment outcomes faster than any other treatment modality.

How is Class IV Laser Therapy better than “Cold Laser Therapy” treatments?
Cold Laser Therapy (or LLLT – Low Level Laser Therapy) was introduced into the USA in 2001 with low power levels. Since that time new scientific and clinical discoveries have led to the development of the higher power lasers, including the new Class IV Laser Therapy.

Biological Effects

Class IV Laser Therapy Deep Penetrating Laser Therapy

Laser light has an anti-edemic effect as it causes vasodilation, and activates the lymphatic drainage system (drains swollen areas). As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by bruising or inflammation.

Anti-Pain (Analgesic)
Laser light facilitates the transmission of nerve impulses through the stimulation of neurotransmitter cells, thereby reducing and even eliminating pain through more effective function of tissue surrounding peripheral nerves. In addition Laser light is effective in the stimulation and regeneration of Myelin sheath tissue that has been degraded or destroyed due to various diseases such as multiple sclerosis.

Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth
Photons of light from lasers penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. The laser light increases the energy available to the cell so that the cell can take on nutrients faster and get rid of waste products.

Improved Vascular Activity
Laser light will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue that speeds up the healing process, closes wounds quickly and reduces scar tissue. In addition, Laser Light Therapy is very effective in reducing pain and reversing the symptoms of Peripheral Vascular Disease and Peripheral Arteritis, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and other autoimmune diseases.

Feel The Difference
In sharp contrast to “Cold Lasers” (LLLT or Low Level Laser Therapy) which provides no feeling or sensation, patients FEEL each Class IV Laser Therapy treatment, as it works to provide laser light energy deep into the body to reach damaged cells and tissues. Results are typically faster than many other therapeutic modalities. Most patients notice a warm, often soothing feeling and often report signs of improvement after the first or second treatment.

See The Results
Both acute and chronic injuries respond well to the Class IV Laser Therapy treatment. Inflammation and swelling are quickly reduced to allow a greater range of motion in the affected area. This helps to regain activity and mobility while reducing scar tissue and adhesions which can slow recovery and healing. Sick and injured tissues are restored to optimal strength and vitality, providing greater functionality and preventing re-injury.
