WHAT EXACTLY IS LASER THERAPY?

Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is the application of a "cold", gentle, non-invasive laser light on specific energy points of the body.  It can be employed for various types of treatment such as acupuncture, hair removal, skin disorders and muscular conditions.
 Within the body the laser collectively works alongside the body’s flow of natural energy, stimulating the endorphins and serotonin.  The relief of tension and pain or chronic pain related to stress, can be relieved by the encouragement of these natural elements within the body, which supports tissue repair and restores healing.  With this basis in mind, laser therapy may be used to treat the effects of various addictions, such as; withdrawal symptoms, stress related to drug or smoking cessation or nicotine cravings.  Low level, laser therapy for the treatment of smoking cessation, is a comparatively new treatment in the United States, however it has been utilized for over 30 years throughout Europe and Canada.  

Laser therapy has gained extensive positive outcomes in the treatment of a range of painful musculoskeletal conditions for example; sports injuries, neck and shoulder pain and arthritis.  Where other treatments have failed to provide a positive outcome for the client, laser therapy has been seen to be demonstrated and confirmed as a highly successful treatment.  The FDA (Food and Drugs Administration) endorses and supports laser therapy in the treatment of particular pain related conditions.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM LASER THERAPY SESSIONS

The initial consultation typically lasts between 30-45 minutes.  During this consultation, the therapist will need to ascertain information regarding your medical history, which will encompass details on any current medications, prior skin complaints and any heart conditions.  These details are used as a reference for your course of treatment and future visits, so it is vital to provide the practitioner with as much detail as possible.  Furthermore if you experience any medical or physical changes during the course of treatment it is highly important to notify the therapist.  To determine the most suitable and safest type of laser or IPL (intense pulsed light) for your skin tone or tattoo/hair colour, a patch test will be carried out.  The therapist may charge you for this test, which some clinics include in the final cost of the treatment.  The treatment you are planning and your skin type, will impact upon when your treatment will commence, following your consultation and patch test.  Darker skin tones tend to be more high risk and the wait until your next appointment could be as much as two weeks.  The initial consultation is a good opportunity to gain as much information about the treatment as possible.  At the end of the appointment you should understand and be comfortable about how many sessions you will be attending, whether they are using laser or IPL and how exactly the treatment works.  By utilizing this opportunity to question your therapist you will feel more comfortable and know what to expect from your sessions.  The laser procedures are largely pain-free, non-invasive and have little or no side effects.  Laser treatments are widely regarded as a relaxing experience.

FINDING A QUALIFIED LASER THERAPIST

Most people find Laser Therapy relaxing and it is also extremely safe when carried out by a qualified therapist.  It is wise to carry out some research and select a therapist who is either a member of, or accredited by, an association or professional body such as the New Zealand Therapeutic Laser Association (NZTLA).  Laser therapists are obligated to a code of ethics and procedure that determines the therapy is carried out in a suitable and safe environment.  These regulations also guarantee a specialist who has undergone certifiable training and receives professional upskilling.
