How Does Laser Therapy Work?

Laser therapy uses light energy (photons) to accelerate the body’s natural healing processes. The photons penetrate the skin and interact with cellular components like the mitochondria, the cell’s powerhouse responsible for producing energy (ATP). This photonic energy is converted into cellular energy, enhancing cellular metabolism, enzyme activation, and overall cell function. The result is reduced inflammation and accelerated healing as damaged cells are revitalized and returned to normal function.
