Laser photobiostimulation, cold or soft laser, or Low Level Laser Therapy, commonly known as LLLT, is a form of phototherapy which involves the application of monochromatic and coherent light to injuries and lesions to stimulate healing. Unlike non-coherent light emitting devices, such as common, the coherent, monochromatic and polarised light emitted by LASER has unique, specific, and scientifically-proven effects that persist deep into the tissue. Laser therapy is used to increase the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair, resolve inflammation, and give pain relief. HOW DOES IT WORK? The effects of laser therapy are photochemical and photomechanical, not thermal - at least, not on a macro-scale. There are two primary forms of effects generated by laser irradiation of biological tissues: photon-absorption (the basis of photobiological action, and generated by all forms of light), and speckle formation, which is unique to laser therapy. Photon-absorption effects occur when photons enter the tissue and are absorbed by photoreceptive molecules, called chromophores, in the mitochondria and at the cell membrane. Photonic energy is then converted to chemical energy within the cell, and is utilised in the form of ATP. A number of the effects of laser irradiation, however, are unique, and are due to the speckle field that is created when coherent laser radiation is reflected, refracted and scattered. The speckle field is not simply a phenomenon created at and limited to the tissue surface, but is generated within a volume of tissue, persisting to the total extent of the depth of penetration of the laser beam. Laser speckles formed deep in the tissue create temperature and pressure gradients across cell membranes, increasing the rate of diffusion across those membranes. Further, photons within each speckle are highly polarised, leading to an increased probability of photon absorption (one possible reason for why laser therapy has been shown to consistently out-perform other non-coherent light sources).
