Taking away pain without harmful side effects. Create a better life for you and your loved ones.
Cold Laser Therapy is an excellent treatment that is often utilized to treat a wide array of conditions and pain. This therapy allows the body to naturally heal itself by utilizing a combination of electric stimulation and cold laser technology. This low level laser therapy consists of a light-emitting device that can be utilized on many different parts of the body.
In addition to simple back and neck pain, cold laser therapy has been utilized for a number of inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, tendonitis and sprains. The number of conditions that have been notably increased in the usage of this therapy include carpal tunnel syndrome, wound management, shoulder and neck injuries, muscle and joint pain, as well as a long list of others.
Not only is cold laser therapy good for you, it is also good for your pets to treat:
- Chronic Non-Healing Wounds
- Chronic Joint Pain
- Muscle Strains and Tears
- Degenerative Conditions
- Post Surgical Pain
- Tendon and Ligament Injuries
- Bone Fractures

Q. What is low-level laser therapy (3LT®)?
A. Low-level laser therapy is the use of low intensity photonic energy as a treatment modality.
Q. How does Low-Level Laser (3LT®) work?
A. Photonic stimuli excite the body’s cells infusing them with energy, with the three primary reactions being, reduction of inflammation, cell regeneration, and increased blood flow.
Q. What is it used for?
A. The potential applications of low-level laser (3LT®) are almost limitless, however; to date Erchonia has received market clearance for Neck and Shoulder Pain, Breast Augmentation, Acne, Laser Assisted Liposuction, and Non-Invasive Body Contouring. Erchonia continues to conduct clinical trials on other applications.
Q. What are the benefits of low-laser therapy?
A. Low level laser therapy is a non-invasive, fast and effective modality that has been proven in clinical trials to reduce pain, reduce edema, and promote healing.
Q. How safe is low-level laser therapy (3LT®)?
A. Low level laser therapy has is very safe; the only general precaution is the use of special filtering glasses when a class 3B laser is in use.
Q. How deep into the tissue can laser light penetrate?
A. The depth of penetration is dependent on multiple factors including mass and density, however since low-level laser has been proven in clinical studies to effect subcutaneous cells; the point is low-level laser, does penetrate; as opposed to the heat lamp devices that do not.
Q. What the difference is between pulsed vs. constant wave?
A. Like their names imply, constant wave is a continuous emission of laser energy, without disruption, for the length of time the device is ON. Pulsed wave is controlled breaks in the wave, at predefined and programmed intervals.
Q. What is hertz as it relates to low-level lasers?
A. The predefined, controlled breaks in the laser emission, measured by the number of breaks per second, equals hertz.
Q. Is low-level laser therapy painful?
A. No, most people do not feel anything. For those that have reported a feeling, it is nothing more than a slight tingling.
Q. How is low-level laser therapy administered?
A. The mechanics of low low-level laser therapy is administered is based on the indication for use; however, the general process is the probe containing the laser diode(s) are held in place or moved gently over the treatment area at a distance of anywhere from 4” – 12.”
Q. How long does it take for the laser to heal or improve a condition?
A. This is dependent of the application; however, progress is immediately evident.
Q. What’s the difference between Lasers vs. LED?
A. Erchonia 3LT® devices used electric diodes, which are high end, culminated and strictly measured within a plus/minus .05%. LEDs are inexpensive, non-focused wide range light sources. The primary difference is in performance and depth of penetration. Laser diodes penetrate, working subcutaneously, LEDs do not, affecting the surface only.
