Low Level Laser Therapy on the Gold Coast
Here’s how you can experience less pain and speed up healing – without medication or surgery. Low level laser therapy uses cold laser light at different wavelengths to both encourage the body’s natural healing processes and block pain nerves.
Some patients find it unbelievable that a laser treatment session relieves their pain when no other treatment or therapy has worked. Here’s just some of the features of low level laser therapy:
Does not heat or harm the skin.
At least as effective as anti-inflammatory medications, without the side effects.
Just pure light therapy using a low level ‘cold’ laser
No Side Effects
A safe therapy for all ages
Low level laser / cold laser is used on the skin without any heating or cutting. In fact there is often no sensation felt at all during treatment. It is a painless therapy that works by reducing or blocking pain signals that are sent to the brain, reducing inflammation and promoting natural healing.
Treats wounds, deeper tissues and nerves
Helps repair skin, injured muscles and nerve fibres
Helps Restore Normal Range of Function After Injury
Helps joints and muscles to move as they should
Can Significantly Reduce Chronic Pain
Treats long-lasting neck and back pain, also pain arising from chronic conditions
Treats Neurological Disorders and Pain
Reduces nerve inflammation and blocks the pain of Migraine, Headache, Peripheral Neuropathy and Post Herpetic Neuralgia
What is low level laser therapy?
Low level laser therapy, also known as LLLT or cold laser therapy, uses a low energy laser light of red and infrared wavelengths.
This light is an energy source that stimulates cells and tissues, improving their functioning, promoting healing and blood flow.
By treating the underlying problem through the body’s natural healing processes, low level laser therapy can result in restoration of function and lasting pain relief.
Revolutionary, medical-grade laser
- Provides pain relief by treating the cause and alleviating the symptoms
- Accelerates healing, getting you back in action faster
- Reduces inflammation and swelling, meaning less discomfort after an injury
- Reduces reliance on pharmaceuticals (under your doctor’s supervision)
Treatment is painless – does not hurt or heat the skin
The low energy laser means there is no tissue damage or pain. It is non-invasive and fast acting which means you can walk out of our clinic feeling better than when you arrived. There is no heat, radiation or ultraviolet light so you can be assured there are no health risks.
Enjoy moving more freely
Our patients are enjoying the increased range of movement and pain reduction after receiving treatment for pain caused by sports injuries, accident injuries and pain as a symptom of conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia. The healing effects of low level laser therapy are truly remarkable.
Frequently Asked Questions about LLLT
How does it work?
LLLT uses a cold laser, a laser with the complete absence of heat. It is placed into contact with the skin and a beam of low-light energy goes into the tissue. This light energy interacts with the tissue. Cells in the tissue receive energy from the laser light which after a complex chain of reactions, improves their ability to perform cellular functions. These functions include cell division and respiration, increasing circulation and restoration.
Is it similar to surgical lasers?
LLLT does not break the skin like surgical lasers. The laser does not hurt or heat the skin and is therefore referred to as non-invasive and painless.
Can anyone use it?
Cold laser therapy is well tolerated and can be used to treat people of all ages.
Are there areas of the body that cannot be treated?
We do not treat:
- Over sites of active cancer
- Over the thyroid gland
- Over the uterus during pregnancy as a precaution
- The laser should never be pointed towards the eyes as it can cause permanent damage
How long is one treatment session?
Pain management treatments are generally 30 minutes duration. Acute injury and wound, scar or leg ulcer treatments are generally 10 minutes duration.
How many treatments will I need?
Low level laser therapy tends to require more than one treatment. The number of sessions needed depends on the individual, the injury or condition, concurrent therapies and the body’s response to laser therapy. As a general guide, 2-3 weekly sessions over a period of 1-3 months may be required, with some conditions requiring ongoing maintenance sessions to maintain the optimum level of pain relief.
- Some patients have reported feeling less pain after their initial treatment
- Within a few sessions, blood circulation is improved and inflammation is reduced, meaning the body’s healing process is usually well underway
- Research indicates LLLT can be as effective as anti-inflammatory medications (and with no side effects)
- LLLT / Cold laser has cumulative benefits, so for chronic pain it can take months for the full effect of the treatment to be felt
- You will be able to tell within a few sessions whether your body is benefitting from the treatment
How deep does the laser go?
Shorter wavelengths are used for skin level tissues such as wounds and scars. Longer wavelengths are used to target deeper tissues such as muscles, ligaments and tendons.
What happens at an appointment?
We have a dedicated laser treatment room at our Robina Town Centre practice. You can discuss your areas of concern with our laser therapist and a treatment protocol will be determined from there.
You will either sit or lie down during treatment and wear safety glasses to protect your eyes. Areas of pain are treated for short periods of time with the laser probe surface directly on the skin or close to it.
We also offer rechargeable, hand-held portable laser devices for hire and purchase. Our hand-held devices are very popular as you can treat your condition in the comfort of your own home. Use as a top-up therapy to work hand-in-hand with laser sessions at our practice, or use as a treatment on its own.
