LiteCure Laser Treatments
Non-Invasive Use Of Laser Energy
Laser therapy is the non-invasive use of laser energy to generate a photochemical response in damaged or dysfunctional tissue. Laser therapy can alleviate pain, reduce inflammation and accelerate recovery from a wide range of acute and chronic clinical conditions. Deep tissue laser therapy accelerates your body’s own natural healing process through photo-bio-stimulation. Laser therapy is effective in treating chronic conditions, acute conditions and post surgical pain, facilitating improved function and mobility. Laser therapy is a drug-free, surgery-free technique.
LiteCure Medical lasers work by flooding the tissue with photons, which energizes cells resulting in increased circulation to the injured area decreasing inflammation and ultimately pain reduction.
Laser therapy allows your body to utilize its own healing processes by inducing a series of healing responses in your body. During treatment, you will feel a soothing warmth that identifies the beginning of an 18- to 24-hour process of modulated cellular activity leading to decreased pain and inflammation.

Laser therapy is a non-invasive technique to help reduce pain and inflammation. Laser therapy can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs. This pain relief treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery.
Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 15 minutes, depending on the condition being treated. Treatments must be administered directly to skin as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing. You will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered.
Depending on the condition being treated, your therapy may be administered through either a contact or non-contact hand-piece. The contact hand-piece is designed to allow the practitioner to physically manipulate the tissue while administering the treatment, resulting in a laser-massage treatment. This allows for light to penetrate deeper into tissues than the non-contact hand-piece due to its ability to displace tissue through a laser-massage technique.
Patients generally see results after three to five treatments. Your practitioner will develop a treatment plan that is optimal for your condition. In most cases, the clinical protocol involves three weeks of treatment consisting of three treatments in the first week, two in the second week and one in the third week. Clients fall into one of three categories: Approximately 50% are good responders, experiencing significant or total resolution of their condition. Partial responders comprise about 40% of clients and they experience an approximate 25-75% improvement during their initial care. Approximately 10% of clients are non-responders and receive limited or no benefit from laser therapy.
The initial fee for laser therapy is $65. This includes a consultation, examination and first laser treatment. Subsequent treatment fees vary and are based on the number of minutes of applied treatment.
