HOW DOES CLASS 4 LASER THERAPY [PHOTOBIOMODULATION] WORK? [ by DoctorZo.Health ]

How Does Class IV Laser Therapy (Photobiomodulation) Work?

Laser therapies stimulate metabolic processes at the cellular level. There are many types of therapy available, depending on the power level, wavelengths and how they interact with the body.

Photobiomodulation is different than laser therapies that have applications in dermatology treatments (like acne) and ophthalmology (eye) procedures.

Photobiomodulation relies on four key parameters of laser technology:

  1. The type of light
  2. The role of wavelengths
  3. The operating modes
  4. The power or energy density

Class IV laser devices use laser diodes that are the “engine” of the products. These diodes determine the power level and the wavelength of the light that’s emitted. Recently, new technological developments have resulted in advanced lasers that are high-power, multi- wavelength devices that include red (635nm) and infrared (810nm, 980nm and 1064nm) wavelengths.

A key difference that makes this treatment better than other therapeutic modalities is photobiomodulation provides energy to cells that causes a series of chemical changes, resulting in the body essentially healing itself.

The Photon (light) energy is able to effectively penetrate the skin and underlying structures, accelerating the body’s recovery process. This photochemical mechanism of action triggers a cascade of cellular actions that include:

  • Stimulation of ATP
  • Stimulation of respiratory chain
  •  Increased DNA and RNA synthesis
  • Enhanced collagen synthesis
  • Increased levels of beta-endorphins and serotonin
