Below, our professionals take a closer look at how cold laser therapy works and where it can be used on the body. Call our Texas wellness center today to learn more about our processes or schedule an appointment.

What is cold laser therapy?

During a cold laser therapy session, our professionals direct low-intensity energy over the area of concern. Cells then absorb the light energy as it passes through the tissue. This encourages cell regeneration and increases blood flow to the area. In turn, patients may experience different benefits based on their individual needs.

Best of all, cold laser therapy stimulates natural healing without raising the temperature of the skin. So unlike traditional laser treatments, patients do not feel uncomfortable or painful heat during their sessions.

What can cold laser therapy treat?

The Wellness Institute of Dallas frequently recommends cold laser therapy to help patients with:

  • Cosmetic concerns: Sun damage and aging skin make many people self-conscious about their appearance. Luckily, cold laser therapy rejuvenates the skin and improves your overall complexion.

  • Inflammation: Inflamed areas that do not heal could lead to chronic problems that decrease your quality of life. Cold laser therapy may reduce excess swelling and inflammation.

  • Minor wounds: If you have a slow-healing wound, cold laser therapy could speed up the healing process. This treatment can even close minor wounds among patients with diabetes.

  • Joint or muscle pain: Arthritis and similar conditions could lead to ongoing joint pain. Instead of turning to over-the-counter solutions, cold laser therapy may alleviate some of this discomfort.

What body areas can be treated with cold laser therapy?

During a consultation, our Texas wellness center will determine if cold laser therapy is a good solution for your needs. If so, we will design a custom treatment plan that targets the area or areas of concern. Common treatment areas include:

  • Face

  • Hands

  • Neck

  • Knees

  • Shoulders

  • Back

If we believe another treatment area would be more beneficial, we will let you know.

What happens during cold laser therapy?

Prior to your cold laser therapy session near Highland Park and University Park, one of our team members will thoroughly cleanse the area of concern. We then direct the low-level energy over the skin until the entire area has been addressed. Whether we are addressing your face or another area of the body, you can relax during your session as we work.

How long does it take cold laser therapy to work?

Most patients start to see results shortly after their cold laser therapy sessions. Some see results in as little as 1 – 3 days for mild conditions, while more serious issues may take a few weeks or a month to resolve. That said, each patient is different, and you may expect a different timeline to achieve your desired results.
