Why Choose Medical Laser Treatment?
Medical Laser Therapy works by flooding the tissue with photons, which energize cells within the injured tissue to begin the healing process. This therapy allows your body to utilize its own restorative powers by inducing a series of healing responses in your body. As you feel the soothing warmth of our medical laser, you will begin an 18-24 hour process of modulated cellular activity leading to decreased pain and inflammation.
What to Expect During Treatment?
Each treatment lasts between 3-15 minutes, depending on the condition being treated, and it is administered directly to the skin as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing. You will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered. Your therapy may be administered using either a “contact” or “non-contact” handpiece. The contact hand-piece is designed to allow your therapist to physically manipulate the tissue while administering the treatment, resulting in a laser-massage treatment. This allows for light to penetrate deeper into the tissues due to its ability to displace the tissue through the laser-massage technique. You should experience positive results after 5-8 treatments, or perhaps, even an immediate change during the initial treatment.
Why Choose JOI and LiteCure Therapy Lasers?
LiteCure Medical is a clinically proven modality that is the preferred brand of healthcare providers. Critical variables, including the area being treated, specific clinical condition, individual body type, and skin pigmentation, will be used to select the most appropriate delivery method for your individual condition. While Laser is not typically covered by insurance, the first Laser treatment is always free! Subsequent visits are $20 per visit, per body part.
Where can you get Laser Treatment?
The laser is available at our San Marco, South & Point Meadows Rehab locations.
