I have heard of cold lasers. Is this the same thing?
No. Not even close. Cold lasers are low level lasers, usually only capable of producing less than .5 watt of power. The K-Laser is a Class IV Laser which reaches 20-25 watts of power. For maximum therapeutic benefit, the K-Laser is highly effective for maximum penetration of most chronic conditions. These are much, much different than the lasers advertised for home use.
Are there any side effects or associated risks?
During more than twenty years of use by healthcare providers all over the world, very few side effects have ever been reported. Occasionally some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few days, as the healing response is more active after treatment.
How long does each treatment take?
The typical treatment is 4 to 8 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.
Has effectiveness been demonstrated scientifically?
Yes. There are thousands of published studies demonstrating the clinical effectiveness of Laser Therapy. Among these, there are more than one hundred rigorously controlled, scientific studies that document the effectiveness of laser for many clinical conditions.
Does it hurt? What does a treatment feel like?
There is little or no sensation during treatment. Occasionally one feels a mild, soothing warmth or tingling. Areas of pain or inflammation may be sensitive briefly before pain reduction.
