What is K-Laser and how does it work?
K-Laser is a class 3 Medical Laser that uses directed energy to help cells produce more ATP, the energy rich chemical that is responsible for nearly all cellular activities—including healing. FDA approved since 2002 and widely used to treat nonhealing soft tissue injuries. It is noninvasive and not painful!
How to get ready for K-laser treatment?
If you are preparing to undergo K-Laser treatment, here are some steps you can take to get ready:
Consult with your healthcare provider: Before undergoing any medical procedure, it’s important to consult with your healthcare provider to determine if K-Laser treatment is appropriate for your specific condition. Your healthcare provider will evaluate your medical history, conduct a physical examination, and may order any necessary tests to assess your overall health and suitability for the treatment.
Follow pre-treatment instructions: Your healthcare provider or the K-Laser clinic may provide you with specific instructions to follow before your treatment. These instructions may include avoiding certain medications or supplements that can affect blood clotting, avoiding sun exposure or tanning beds, and discontinuing use of creams, lotions, or makeup on the treatment area. It’s important to carefully follow these instructions to ensure the best possible outcomes
Stay hydrated: Adequate hydration is important for the overall functioning of your body, including tissue healing. Make sure to drink plenty of water before and after your K-Laser treatment to stay well-hydrated. Avoid alcohol and caffeine, as they can dehydrate the body.
Dress appropriately: Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing to your K-Laser treatment session. Avoid tight clothing or jewelry that may interfere with the treatment area. Your healthcare provider may also advise you to wear protective eyewear during the treatment to protect your eyes from the laser light.
Communicate openly with your healthcare provider: It’s crucial to communicate openly with your healthcare provider about any medical conditions, medications, or concerns you may have before and during your K-Laser treatment. This includes disclosing any allergies, previous surgeries, or ongoing treatments you may be undergoing.
Plan for post-treatment care: Your healthcare provider will provide you with specific post-treatment care instructions. This may include avoiding sun exposure, applying topical creams or ointments, and avoiding activities that may exacerbate your condition, such as heavy lifting or strenuous exercise.
What is a cold laser treatment?
Cold Laser Therapy is also called Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) uses a certain wavelength of light to penetrate and interact with soft tissue to help increase the healing process.
What is cool laser treatment?
Cold laser therapy is also called low-intensity laser therapy. The goal is to stimulate healing by using directed beams of low levels of light. Aesthetic or Surgical type lasers create heat in your tissues that cause damage that change the tissue as it heals. Also called LPLT which is also called low-power laser therapy, or LLLT- low -level laser therapy, and even soft laser these lasers cause no burning.
How does a therapeutic laser work?
Using a laser beam, the photons create changes in the tissue at a cellular level. This is a photochemical reaction – an interaction between photons and cells. Cold lasers are precise in the area it helps heal. similar to “hot lasers” that have “surgical precision”.
What is LLLT therapy?
Low-level lasers encourage cell healing and stimulate cell function. This is the opposite of Medical lasers that are high powered and designed to cut or destroy tissue.
What is Deep Tissue Laser Therapy ?
Using biomodulation to decrease pain, the damaged tissue absorbs more energy than corresponding healthy. Class 4 Laser works with out surgery or drugs.
