How does laser therapy work?

Phototherapy stimulates the production of ATP in the mitochondria, relieving oxidative stress and restoring cellular respiration. Your damaged cells repair and can function properly!

What is oxidative stress?

Oxidative stress or oxidative buildup is a condition in which healthy cells become clogged with nitric oxide due to exposure to injury, chronic inflammation, and aging. When cells are clogged with nitric oxide, they cannot take in oxygen, which inhibits their ability to produce ATP. Phototherapy stimulates the mitochondria to release nitric oxide. As a result, the cell can take in oxygen and produce ATP. ATP is cellular energy which allows the cell to function properly. When oxidative stress is relieved, the nitric oxide that is released from the cell has to go somewhere, so it floods the blood stream, causing dilation of blood vessels and increased circulation.

Can laser therapy cause any harm?

There is no evidence of anyone in any study being harmed in any way by this level of phototherapy. It has no adverse reactions. If you are under 18, pregnant, on chemotherapy, or blood pressure medication, please let us know so we can take extra precautions.

What treatment would be best for me?

Treatements are tailored to each individual's concerns and goals. Call us at (252)689-8729 for a free consultation so we can help you pick a treatment plan that is right for you.

What are light and laser therapy?

Light and Laser therapy, also called photobiomodulation therapy, is the use of Light Emitting Diodes to stimulate cells with wavelength specific photons to heal your damaged tissues on a cellular level. Nothing comes out of our equipment that doesn't come out of the sun! We offer a concentrated form of these photons without any harmful wavelengths that damage your tissue (such as ultraviolet radiation).

Do you accept insurance?

We do not file insurance here. However, we have many payment options available. We accept Care Credit and can help you apply right here in our office! Please schedule a free consultation so we can help you choose a plan that is right for you.

What is an average laser protocol?

Treatment protocols vary from person to person, but in general you can expect to come to our office twice a week for several weeks.
