- Decrease Pain
- Reduce Inflammation
- Increase Circulation
- Accelerate Healing
Heal at the Speed of LightPhotoBioModulation or Laser Therapy activates your body’s own natural healing by supplying billions of photons of light at very specific wavelengths to the injured tissue. At a cellular level, the body transforms this light into chemical energy, which the body then uses to naturally repair its own tissues. Ultimately CLT relieves acute and chronic pain, accelerates healing of acute injuries, alleviates autoimmune conditions and improves memory.

Mechanism of Action – Activates Three Cellular Pathways:The Cold Laser Medical Device uses two main wavelengths to stimulate biological processes in our cells.
- 1. Visible red laser light in the 660 nm range deposits the laser energy to the surface tissues.
- 2. Near Infrared laser light in the 905 nm range penetrate 4 – 5 inches below the tissue surface and treat deep seated conditions such as low back and hip pain.
Accelerates Healing via Adenosine Triphosphare (ATP) Pathway660nm Laser Light is absorbed into the mitochondria of the cell and stimulates increased ATP production. ATP, a natural energy source, accelerates tissue repair.
Reduces Inflammation via the Nitric Oxide Pathway905nm Laser Light increases the production of Nitric Oxide (NO) by over 700% which increases vasodilation and decreases inflammation. Increasing blood flow to injured tissue accelerates the natural healing process, eliminates toxins and waste-products created during the inflammatory process.
Eliminates Pain via the Lipid Absorption Pathway.905nm Laser Light activates receptors within the cell membrane to alter the flow of Sodium (NA+) and Potassium (K+) ions. As a result, CLT rebalances the Na+/K+ pump which eliminates pain signals at the source.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the difference between normal light and laser light?In contrast to normal light, the laser light beam can travel long distances without being dispersed, known as coherence. As a result of this coherence, the laser light can penetrate up to five inches. Also, the laser focuses its power within a small surface area causing a strong therapeutic healing effect on nerve, muscle and joint conditions.
How does Photobiomodulation Laser Therapy Work?Photobiomodulation floods damaged tissues with photons which energizes cells increasing cellular metabolism and ultimately decreases inflammation, decreases pain, increases circulation, promotes and accelerates tissue healing. More specifically, the photons enter the mitochondria of the cells to help produce ATP, the chemical energy source of our cells. For those who may not remember grade school biology, mitochondria function like the batteries of our cells that produce about 90% of their energy. Mitochondria play an important role especially in high-energy demanding organs such as heart, liver, muscles and brain. Therefore, laser therapy shows great therapeutic efficacy in treating many acute and chronic injuries, chronic diseases and memory issues and brain fog.
Can Laser Therapy be combined with other treatment modalities?Yes, combining laser therapy with other treatments which promote tissue repair work synergistically to enhance its effectiveness. Specifically, at Simply Men’s Health RejuvaNATION Medical Center, we combine RejuvaWAVE® Multi Wave Shockwave, Platelet-Rich-Plasma(PRP) and Biologics which also promotes tissue repair
How long does the therapy take?Our state-of-the art, Cold Laser Therapy medical device is customized to deliver the optimal energy density depending on the severity and condition being treated. High-powered CLT delivers a lot of energy in a small amount of time allowing therapeutic dosages to be achieved quickly. Therefore, the treatment times varies from 2 minutes to as long as 20 minutes per session.Most therapy plans involve between 6-12 treatments. Patients with more severe, chronic, long-standing conditions often need more treatments. Based on an individual’s condition and response, the treating medical professional customizes a treatment plan optimal for your condition. In general, initially patients receive 2-3 treatments per week. Since the benefits of laser therapy are cumulative, as symptoms resolve, the frequency of treatments decrease.
How long before one notices a difference?Depending on the condition and severity being treated, many patients see results after just a few treatments. But for noticeable changes, patients need to undergo a series of treatments, especially since the benefits of laser therapy treatments are cumulative. Overall CLT demonstrates over 90% efficacy rates.
Are there any harmful side effects?No. PhotoBioModulation therapy is safe and effective. Broadly, there are two kinds of lasers. Non-thermal Class B medical device lasers energize cellular metabolism, stimulate tissue repair, increase circulation, reduce inflammation and eliminate pain. In contrast, Class 4 surgical lasers generate heat to cut through tissue and damage cells. CLT PhotoBioModulation, a Class 3B medical device, does not cut through nor damage tissue.Although CLT is not harmful, one must never shine laser light directly into anyone’s eyes. If shined directly into one’s eyes for a length of time, it could induce permanent eye damage
What are the contraindications to Cold Laser Therapy?Pregnant women should avoid CLT directly to their abdomen, low back or pelvic areaDo not treat over growth plates in children.Do not treat over areas of pacemakers
Are there scientific documentation on efficacy and safety PhotoBioModulation?Throughout the scientific and medical literature, clinical studies and published articles show the validity and efficacy of Cold Laser Therapy to treat a wide variety of conditions. In order to learn more about PhotoBioModulation, one can read a very good book “Low Level Laser Therapy – Clinical Practice and Scientific Background” written by Jan Turner & Lars Hode.
Low testosterone is a problem that impacts a lot of men, even young men. There is a common misconception that men do not lose their testosterone-like women lose estrogen. Therefore, men assume that they will always have the same level of hormones and suffer very little impact associated with age-related hormone loss.Unfortunately, this is a…
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is an uncomfortable topic for many men to discuss with their healthcare providers, but it impacts over 30 million men in the U.S. alone. Over 50% of men over the age of 40 in the U.S. have some degree of ED, but there are simple lifestyle changes men can make to reduce…
Nitric oxide, the “miracle molecule,” signals your blood vessels to relax and dilate. Therefore, Nitric Oxide production plays an important role in both men and women’s health. Specifically, nitric oxide helps improve blood flow, lowers blood pressure, increases exercise performance, boosts arousal and is crucial for sexual function.By as we age, Nitric Oxide production in…
