The Curelight class IV laser therapy system features advancec laser technology and can deliver more energy than other therapy lasers. The additional power coupled with optimal wavelength and trearment light beam size, result in deeper penetration, signigicantly faster treatment times and delivery of the proper therapeutic dosage. These features provude healthcare professionals an enhanced and superior ability to treat difficult conditions and ultimately provide better clinical outcomes to all patients.

How Does Laser Therapy Work?

Laser therapy works by stimulating a process called photobiomodulation (PBM) in which photons enter the tissue and interact with the Cytochrome C complex within mitochondria. To receive the best therapeutic outcomes from laser therapy, a sufficient amount of light must reach the target tissue. Factors that maximize reaching target tissue include

  • Laser light & Biostimulation 
  • Analgesic effect - laser light converting into heat
  • Analgesic effect - laser light converting into heat
  • Minimizing Unwanted Absorption

Effects On Metabolic Processes

PHOMED Laser Class IV therapeutic lasers deliver specific red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a photochemical reaction and therapeutic effect. Physiological effects include increased circulation, reduced inflammation, pain reduction and enhanced tissue healing.

During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.

During PHOMED Laser Therapy, infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level increasing metabolic activity within the cell. By improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane, the increased production of cellular energy (ATP) is stimulated. The cascade of beneficial effects that follows includes increased cellular function and tissue repair

Why wavelength is so important?

Wavelengths determine laser energy’s depth of penetration in tissue and specifically target beneficial chromophores to stimulate the photochemical reaction.

Irradiating an area with 650nm, a wavelength where melanin in our skin absorbs very well, will ensure a large dose to the superficial region. Since light can both inhibit bacteria and promote cell growth, laser therapy has incredible results in wound healing and scar tissue regulation.
The enzyme determining how efficiently the cell converts molecular oxygen into ATP has the highest absorption at 810nm. Regardless of the enzyme’s molecular state, when it absorbs a photon it will flip states. Photon absorption will accelerate the process and increase cellular ATP production.
Oxygen is released in variable percentages in the blood: the faster it is released, the more oxygen needs to be transported to the cell in order for the natural healing processes to take place. This wavelength is absorbed by haemoglobin, water, melanin and Cytochrome C oxidase. When it is absorbed, more oxygen is available to the cells.
Water in the blood transports oxygen to the cells, carries waste away, and absorbs very well at 980nm. The energy created from absorbing a photon gets convertedto heat, creating a temperature gradient at the cellular level, stimulating micro-circulation, and bringing more oxygen-fuel to the cells.
The 1064nm wavelength is a longer wavelength that can penetrate deeper into tissue. Clinical studies indicate that it has the leasr dispersion within biological tissues due to its decreased melanin absorption. The result is deep activation of metabolic processes vital for all cellular activities.

Why Is Power So Important?

If wavelength determines a laser energy’s depth of penetration, then power determines its saturation at the targeted depth. It would be a mistake to consider one without the other. Power (Watts) is the number of photons of radiation you can deliver per unit of time. The energy deposited (Joules) is the accumulation of these photons over time (1 Watt=1 Joule per 1 second). By starting out with more Watts at the surface, more will penetrate to desired depth. For an illustration, consider the following:

40 seconds to deliver 10 Joules of energy to a 4cm depth
10 seconds to deliver 10 Joules of energy to a 4cm
