Low Level Laser Therapy

IMPROVE WOUND & SOFT TISSUE HEALING

Low Level Laser Therapy, also known as Cold Laser Therapy, is an extremely effective non-thermal (or “Cold”) laser treatment, designed to treat and relieve a number of skin, inflammatory and body conditions. Australian Laser & Skin is proud to provide this therapy in our Melbourne clinics, helping to alleviate, decrease, and reduce a number of our client’s concerns. It works by penetrating the skin deeply with a consistent infra-red laser beam at a long wavelength of 800 – 830 nm, resulting in the stimulation, regulation and acceleration of cell function in the area being treated. It also delivers effective penetration into injured cells to promote healing, restoration and the regeneration of damaged tissue. The appearance creates fresh, clear and youthful skin that is free of imperfections. This treatment can be used on any part of the body and works to restore injured tissue to a normal level in both structure and function. Symptoms such as swelling, redness and damaged skin may also be alleviated. Low Level Laser Therapy can be used in conjunction with other treatments in our Melbourne clinics to achieve your desired results. When performed together with Microdermabrasion, Chemical Peels, Photo Rejuvenation, Anti-Wrinkle Injections, Dermal Fillers, Skin Needling, and Laser Facial, your skin’s healing process is accelerated and results are increased.

How Does Low Level Laser Therapy Work?

Simply put, the treatment is a medical grade laser that promotes stimulation and renewal without heat or discomfort to the affected areas, either on the skin or within. Emitting a gentle beam of light, it works by promoting regeneration to the damaged tissue by encouraging cellular renewal and collagen, as well as elastin growth. This leads to a reduction of the signs of inflammation, redness and discomfort. The damaged area becomes noticeably stronger with increased lymphatic drainage and recovery. This therapy may be used anywhere on the face or body.

Amazing Client Results

Who is Low Level Laser Therapy for..

Low Level Laser Therapy is very versatile and is used to treat a range of conditions.

Inflammatory conditions that are treated successfully with Low Level Laser Therapy includes; deeper concerns such as arthritis, inflamed muscles and joints, pinched nerves, back and neck pain, bunions; and superficial concerns such as skin rashes, bruises, eczema, grazing and scarring. Low Level Laser Therapy works to increase the production of endogenous opioids, serotonin, acetylcholine and nitric oxide, which brings oxygen, fuel molecules and other metabolites to injured tissues. This stimulates the natural healing processes and aids in resolving inflammation. Furthermore, Low Level Laser Therapy for pain associated conditions can have a selective inhibitory effect on pain receptors, working to produce a reversible neural blockade.

Low Level Laser Therapy can also treat the following skin ailments: psoriasis, rosacea, acne, oedema, red stretch marks, mature stretch marks, bruising, scars, including new scars and scars on the face.

At Australian Laser & Skin our Low Level Laser Therapy treatments can be combined with Microdermabrasion, Chemical Peels, Photo Rejuvenation, Anti-Wrinkle Injections, Dermal Fillers, Skin Needling or Laser Facial to accelerate the healing process and increase results.

Other conditions treated by LLLT include: Dermatitis, Hyperkeratosis, Folliculitis and Herpes Simplex Virus (cold sore).

Pre + Post Treatment Care

Pre Treatment

  • The most important rule when doing a course of laser hair removal sessions is to avoid any kind of sun exposure, use of self-tanners (including spray tans), and solariums. These can all greatly affect laser treatment, as laser is attracted to dark pigment and is unable to decipher between the pigment in dark hair and tanned/darker skin. To reduce any risk of skin burning or pigmenting due to incorrect preparation, your clinician must be aware if you have had recent UV exposure or are wearing fake tan. An SPF30 or greater sunscreen must be used daily and frequently to protect the treated area throughout the course of treatments.
  • As waxing, plucking and threading temporarily remove the hair from the follicle before it grows back, it is imperative to not pursue such methods for a minimum of 4 weeks prior to laser hair removal in the treatment area. If there is no hair in the follicle at the time of treatment, then the laser is unable to successfully target and destroy growth. The use of shaving or depilatory creams on the treatment area is not a problem, as they do not remove the hair from the follicle.
  • It is recommended only to remove surface hair by shaving, depilatory creams, or clippering the treated areas during the course of treatment.
  • Shave the area to be treated 24 hours prior to your treatment; this will promote a stronger current in the laser which will mean better results.
  • Avoid partaking in any activities prior to coming in for treatment that will make you hot and sweaty, such as exercising or going to spas and saunas.
