Body pain is a fact of everyday life for many of us. Therapeutic laser light provides cellular energy to the human body, much like the sun does for plants. In doing so, damaged body tissue, including muscle, tendon, bone, nerve and cartilage, can be repaired to alleviate pain symptoms.
Lumix superpulsed laser therapy:
- Reduces inflammation, swelling and bruising, which contribute to pain
- Repairs damaged tissue to improve healing and joint function
- Infuses injured cells with energy while helping remove toxins
- Reaches deep targets in joints, deep muscles and organs
- Stimulates collagen production
- Relieves acute pain issues quickly
- Relieves difficult neuropathic pain
- Speeds wound healing, including burns
- Reduces formation of scars
- Improves vascular activity
- Strengthens the immune system
- Increases metabolism
- Provides pain relief without risk of opioid addiction
The Science Behind the Technology
Albert Einstein established the physical principle of Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER) in 1917. Lasers emit tiny waves and frequencies of light in the form of electromagnetic particles called photons.
As this laser energy is absorbed by cells, it can be converted into cellular energy called adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a universal protein that provides fuel to the cells for metabolic function and for growth and repair.
In surgical lasers, laser energy is converted into heat, enabling it to cut or vaporize tissues very precisely.
Biostimulative lasers emit photons with wavelengths and pulse energies that maximize cellular regeneration needed for tissue repair, whether it be skin, nerve, muscle, ligament or bone.
In contrast, biostimulative lasers emit photons with wavelengths and pulse energies that maximize cellular regeneration needed for tissue repair, whether it be skin, nerve, muscle, ligament or bone. This process is called photobiomodulation (PBM). Therapeutic lasers that deliver the most effective tissue penetration emit photons with pulse energies that are short in duration and very high in peak power.
Superpulsed technology avoids the ablative effects of surgical lasers by pulsing beams of light that are only billionths of a second long, but with high to very high peak power levels (45 – 250 watts). This allows the delivery of light energy deeply into tissues for repair, while avoiding tissue damage from heat buildup. Superpulsed lasers focus on pain relief through reduction of inflammation, and promotion of tissue healing.
