Medical laser

What is a laser?
A laser is a source of light which emits very pure light. The definition of pure light in this text is light that has only one wavelength, the same way that the sound from a flute only has one tone and therefore is purer than the sound of a can filled with pebbles that is shaken for example. The light from a laser has, similar to the tone of a flute, slow, continuous waves, which can be made strong or feeble.

What is medical laser?
There are many different lasers used for medical purposes but one can distinguish between two main groups:
1. Strong lasers that cut and burn. These lasers are often called surgical lasers.
2. Feeble lasers that stimulate cell functions. These lasers are often referred to as biostimulating lasers or low-effect lasers.

What happens during the treatment?
The laser light comes from a so called prob (similar to a pen). The prob is held against the area of treatment. Depending on the laser type, the light penetrates one to five centimeters into the tissue. The treatment can take between a couple of minutes and half an hour, depending on the depth of the problem and the size of the area of treatment.

Does it hurt?
No, rather the contrariwise. Laser treatments are very relaxing, although pain increases can occur within 6-24 hours after the treatment.

How often and how many times?
Regularly patients are treated more frequently in the beginning (every other day or once a week) and then with longer intervals once the healing has started. Our treatments include two to six visits.

Are there any risks?
No, there are no risks in laser treatments. Sometimes skin irritation and small wounds occur when the patient is treated with our most powerful laser nd:YAG.

Biostimulation is extremely pure light that affects cell functions and stimulates the body’s immune system. The idea is as simple as it is genius. Help to self-help. Read more >>click here
