What is laser therapy?
Laser therapy is a safe and non-invasive technology that uses the body’s own restorative processes to treat the disorder. Much like photosynthesis in plants, laser light energy enters the cell membrane through the skin initiating a process called photobiostimulation. This process enhances the body’s natural regenerative functions, as well as promotes the release of endorphins and collagen. It is exposed to laser light, normalizes blood flow, metabolism, cell division, and detoxification in the affected area of the body. This restores the function of movement, the lowest risk of inflammation, and the formation of scars. “High power laser light” stimulates all types of cells – soft tissues, ligaments, cartilage, nerves, and bones. For this reason, it works effectively inside large joints and other deep and/or difficult-to-reach places up to a depth of 6 cm. “High power” i.e. up to 20w laser therapy is a treatment, not a symptom reduction.
What is K-Laser therapy for?
K-Laser’s unique Super-Pulse Technology (ISP) provides an instantly noticeable effect on tissue healing and pain relief as it reaches deeper layers while avoiding skin overheating.
K-Laser therapy is intended for:
→ for the treatment of inflammation – reduces swelling, stimulates the lymphatic system;
→ pain relief – has a positive effect on pain receptors by blocking the entry of pain signals into the brain. The pain is also reduced due to the anti-inflammatory and anti-swelling effects created by the laser, which stimulates the production of endorphins;
→ improves blood circulation – accelerates the formation of a capillary network in the damaged area, thus accelerating wound healing;
→ improves metabolism – stimulates the production of enzymes responsible for oxygen transport. Affects the recovery and regeneration of damaged cells;
→ improves nerve regeneration, laser therapy stimulates growth and regeneration factors, as well as the production of myelin, which is very important for nerve cell healing;
→ accelerates the healing of wounds, ulcers, mucosal wounds, stimulates tissue regeneration;
→ effective in traumatology, sports medicine, as it promotes cartilage recovery and improves the condition of joints;
→ improves chondrocyte and collagen production.
What results can I expect from the K-Laser Cube 4 high-power laser therapy?
Many patients report that the pain is relieved after just one treatment session. Practical studies have shown that after 1-2 procedures, acute pain was significantly reduced in 70% of clients, and chronic (lasting more than 3 months) – by 60%. For example chronic treatment of lower back pain was effective in 71% of cases, in 45% of cases it was completely eliminated; wound healing was significantly faster in 55% of cases. In all cases, the amplitude of the movements improves. This is due to several world-class innovations used in this laser: 4-wavelength technology, which has different wavelengths and frequencies, working together to create exceptional efficiency effects, and ISP technology. With this technology, a pulse frequency of up to 20000Hz and its combination with different types of laser light waves ensure a long-term treatment effect and significantly shorter procedure time. A power of up to 20w cures rather than relieves symptoms.
How long are the results felt and how many procedures are needed to achieve them?
Already after the first treatment, you will feel a marked reduction in pain or it will disappear altogether. If the pain does not go away after the second procedure, it does not mean that the condition does not improve, because the effect of the laser is cumulative. Acute pain usually requires 4-6 procedures, and chronic (lasting more than 3 months) – 6-12 procedures. If you continue your treatment in the physiotherapy room after exercising pain relief procedures or do exercises at home – the pain may never happen again. The physiotherapists of our clinic will teach you how and what exercises to perform and/or apply the most effective method or equipment that accelerates your rehabilitation.
Is laser therapy safe and is its effectiveness based on research?
Laser therapy has been used for over 30 years and during this period has been recognized as a safe and effective treatment. Over 2,000 scientific and medical research articles have been published on laser therapy for accelerated trauma healing and pain relief in both acute and chronic diseases. Among them are more than 100 tightly controlled studies that have recorded the effectiveness of the laser. The safety and efficiency of the laser device are certified by CE and FDA. No side effects have been found in long-term studies, it applies even to pregnant women. Laser treatment makes it possible to avoid drug treatment or surgery. The power of other medical lasers is measured in kilowatts, while the power of the K-Laser Cube 4 is only 30W, as its power is created with the help of innovative exclusive technologies and they are fully sufficient for fast and effective treatment.
Is laser treatment painful? How does a person feel during treatment?
Absolutely painless. Occasionally, customers feel warmth or mild tingling.
Does laser therapy have side effects?
Laser therapy is a pleasant and painless procedure. In rare cases, the following may occur after the procedure:
– drowsiness may be felt for a few minutes after the procedure;
– temporary dizziness;
– patients with more sensitive skin may experience temporary reddening of the skin and may experience itching.
How long does the procedure take?
The treatment usually lasts 4-8 minutes depending on the size of the area to be treated.
When is laser treatment not available?
Research has identified only a few contraindications to laser therapy. These include:
– malignancies, cancers, advanced metastases,
– thyroid zone,
– direct illumination of the fetus and the waiting lower back should be avoided during pregnancy. Other parts of the body can be treated;
– eyes – do not point the laser beam directly at the eyes, even if safety goggles are worn.
– Patients taking photo-sensitizing drugs (such as steroids) or immunosuppressive drugs (immunosuppressants) should not be treated with laser therapy.
– if you are being treated with cortisone injections, laser therapy can be started no earlier than after 7 days,
– direct action of open bleeding sites.
The use of a laser is possible with:
» Hyperpigmentation (a condition that appears as spots that are darker than the surrounding skin);
» Tattoos, moles, dark spots (the laser tip is guided over these areas faster, if necessary, these areas can be covered with titanium or zinc dioxide grease);
» Bacterial infections – Laser therapy is an excellent tool for promoting wound healing and has an antimicrobial effect.
