Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) provide analgesic effect (pain relief) first and foremost. While laser acts to reduce inflammation on injured sites, both local blood supply and systemic circulation improve, enhancing our immune response, thereby removing free radicals/ reactive oxygen species or more commonly known - toxins. In addition, LLLT induces our body to produce more endorphins and serotonin, which relieve stress, promote better sleep and helps tissue healing process. LLLT can be used in conjunction with pharmaceutical intervention or as a stand alone treatment, in case of the former, decrease in drug dosages after treatment is a realistic expection.
