Discover the Healing Power of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) with MultiRadiance MR5 ACTIV PRO LaserStim

What is Low Level Laser Therapy?

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a groundbreaking treatment that uses low-intensity lasers to stimulate cellular function and promote healing. This non-invasive therapy leverages the power of light to reduce pain, inflammation, and enhance tissue repair, providing a natural and effective solution for various medical conditions.

How Does LLLT Work?

LLLT works by delivering specific wavelengths of light to targeted areas of the body. These light waves penetrate the skin and are absorbed by the cells, boosting cellular energy production and enhancing the body’s natural healing processes. This results in reduced pain, accelerated tissue repair, and decreased inflammation.

Difference between Continuous and Pulsed Laser?

In general, laser diodes can be either continuous wave (CW) or pulsed. Continuous wave diodes emit laser energy continuously, while pulsed diodes generate high-amplitude radiation impulses of very short duration, typically 100-200 nanoseconds. Continuous wave lasers maintain a constant power level during emission. Though they lack the high peak power of “true“ or “super“ pulsed lasers, they can be made to flash multiple times per second, simulating pulse-like rhythms by rapidly turning the light on and off, similar to flipping a light switch.

“True“ or “super“ pulsed lasers emit brief, high-power light impulses. The high peak power achieved during each pulse allows the light energy to penetrate deeply into the target tissue. The peak power of these lasers is significantly higher than their average pulse power, enhancing the effectiveness of light energy delivery into the tissue. The advanced laser and electronic technologies required for pulsed diodes, and the diodes themselves, are more sophisticated and costly compared to continuous wave diodes. This cost factor is why over 90% of therapeutic lasers in the North American market are low-power continuous wave lasers, some of which provide power levels comparable to an inexpensive laser pointer costing around $30.

Introducing the MultiRadiance MR5 LaserStim Super Pulsed Laser

The MR5 ACTIV PRO LaserStim is a cordless, portable low-level laser therapy system with advanced TARGET and DOSE technology, making it the world’s leading FDA-registered device in its class. With a peak Super Pulsed Laser power of 50W, it delivers efficient treatments without raising skin temperature, ensuring unmatched safety and efficacy.

This device combines neurological electrical stimulation and laser in one probe for optimal light penetration and deep tissue absorption, providing quick pain relief. Unlike traditional Class IV lasers, the ACTIV PRO achieves high power without causing photothermal effects, reducing the risk of excessive reactive oxygen species (ROS) that can damage cells. Its combination of high-power super pulsed laser and ultra-bright infrared, red, and blue LEDs maximizes the therapeutic benefits of the full phototherapeutic spectrum, ensuring superior outcomes.
  • Super Pulsed Laser Technology: Provides deeper tissue penetration with combination of specific wavelength 660nm/875nm/905nm minimal thermal impact, enhancing therapeutic outcomes.
  • Targeted Treatment: Combines laser light, electrical stimulation, and magnetic fields for comprehensive treatment.
  • Versatility: Effective for a wide range of conditions, including chronic pain, sports injuries, and skin rejuvenation.
465 nm

Pulsed Blue Light

The blue light penetrates a relatively superficial tissue depth and supports superficial skin healing.
660 nm

Pulsed Red Light

The red light penetrates a relatively shallow tissue depth and provides topical heating.
875 nm

Infrared SLDs

The infrared non-coherent light penetrates deeper tissue than the 660nm and offers a unique biological response resulting in reduction of pain signals.
905 nm

Super Pulsed Laser

Super Pulsed laser produces high powered light in a billionth of a second pulses. The power of each pulse drives the photons deep into the target tissue. Multi Radiance Medical’s technology lasers generate power of up to 50 000nW creating high photon density, reducing pain and improving micro-circulation.

Static Magnetic Field

The static magnetic field keeps ionized molecules of tissue in a dissociated state, enhancing the tissue’s potential to absorb the energy.

Benefits of Low Level Laser Therapy (Cold Laser)

Health Benefits

  • Pain Relief: Effective for chronic pain conditions such as arthritis, back pain, and neck pain.

  • Reduced Inflammation: Helps decrease swelling and inflammation, improving mobility and comfort.

  • Enhanced Healing: Accelerates wound healing and recovery from injuries.

  • Skin Rejuvenation: Improves the appearance of the skin by reducing wrinkles, scars, and acne.

Advantages Over Other Treatments

  • Non-Invasive: No surgery or needles involved.

  • Minimal Side Effects: Unlike many medications, LLLT has minimal to no side effects.

  • Drug-Free Pain Relief: Offers a natural alternative to pain management without relying on pharmaceuticals.

How many sessions does it take?

Multiple visits are recommended for cold laser treatment as it strengthens tissues over time, leading to more lasting effects and prolonged benefits. The effectiveness of the treatment increases with the frequency of sessions. Patients are advised to undergo low-level laser therapy between 8 to 30 times to achieve optimal results. The cold laser treatment consists of several stages:

Introductory Phase

This initial stage involves the first application of the laser to the skin. While there may be no immediate noticeable benefits, the tissue healing process begins.

Therapeutic Phase

After 3-4 treatments, the therapeutic phase starts, during which healing of muscular and connective tissues becomes evident.

Conclusion Phase

This phase follows the therapeutic stage after about three to four weeks of treatment, marking the completion of the primary healing process.

Preventative Course

The final stage aims to reinforce the treatment’s effects, typically occurring 3-4 times a year to prevent injury recurrence.

Sessions usually last between 10 to 30 minutes. The number of treatments varies based on the condition, often requiring multiple sessions for optimal results.
