This helps improve healing times and comfort levels in our patients right after surgery. The laser releases photons (light particles) that are absorbed by damaged cells and are used to produce adenosine triphosphate, or ATP.
ATP is the body’s energy source and drives every cellular reaction. With this energy, the cells can return to their normal functions much more quickly.
Blood flow to the area is improved, inflammation and edema are reduced, scar tissue formation is decreased, and nerve function is improved. These and other functions ultimately help reduce pain, improve blood flow, and speed healing.
