Cold Laser – Low-level Laser Therapy LLLT

At Irrefutable Health, we’ll use a cold laser to help you heal properly. Low-level laser therapy, or LLLT, is known to enhance wound healing (including difficult-to-treat ulcerations as well as abrasions, turf burns and surgical incisions). Tissue healing is a complex process that involves local and systemic responses.Read More>>>

The use of LLLT for repair has been shown to be effective in modulating both local and systemic responses. Data suggests that LLLT facilitates collagen synthesis, keratinocyte cell motility, and growth factor release and transforms fibroblasts to myofibroblasts, all of which has to happen for healing to occur. Articles are available on request for your reading. LLLT is used to assist in the healing process as seen in the photos below.

Frequency-Specific Microcurrent

Frequency-Specific Microcurrent (FSM) is available for faster acute or chronic wound healing and augmentation of scar tissue remodeling. Microcurrents have a potent effect on microcirculation, which results in dramatic responses to treatment. Microcirculation changes (the problem of impaired blood flow in tiny blood vessels) is the underlying issue in many of the disease processes (diabetes, etc.).

Better Circulation for Improved Healing
Without blood flow to the tissues, oxygen and nutrients cannot get into the tissues and the waste products of metabolism cannot get out. Severe stress is then placed on the tissues, causing them to go into a survival mode. The cells use what limited resources they have to stay alive. Higher functions, including healing, repair and tissue-mediated immunity, become essentially shut down. FSM has a potent effect to solve this problem. As seen below, FSM is used to assist the healing of long-standing ulcers.
