Low-level light is emitted by laser light sources, which are grouped under the general term of “laser therapy.” For certain medical applications, laser light is used for its therapeutic effects. Surprisingly, this low-tech medical treatment has developed significantly in the past few years.
The expansion of this field is driven by intense research into the mechanisms of action of laser light and its potential for treating a wide range of medical conditions. In this blog post, we discuss what is laser therapy and how it is used.
What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy uses light to treat disease or medical conditions. Lasers, which are light-emitting devices that emit light at a specific wavelength, are used as sources of light. The light wavelengths emitted by lasers can be controlled to emit light of certain wavelengths and intensities.
Key Feature of Laser Therapy
One of the key features of laser therapy is that the light is targeted.
It can be directed at specific tissues or organs, like the eye and the skin, or be aimed at a particular disease.
This targeting feature makes laser therapy a more effective treatment option than conventional light treatments, which are not targeted and can cause damage to the surrounding tissues.
