Regenerative, Non-Invasive, Pain Management uses the scientifically proven modality of photobiomodulation; photons of light to modulate mitochondria at a biological level. The result is increased VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor), molecular bloodflow and angiogenisis. This reduces pain and inflammation, enhances tissue healing and increases circulation. 

Effects of Laser Therapy

Photobiomodulation (PBM) is a light therapy that uses red and near infra-red light to induce photochemical reactions in the body on the molecular and cellular levels. Summus Medical Laser protocols combine wavelengths, pulsing and power to achieve unparalleled therapeutic effects including modulation of inflammation, reduction in pain, accelerated tissue healing and increased circulation.

Cellular Effects

During laser therapy, infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level increasing metabolic activity within the cell. By improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane, the increased production of cellular energy (ATP) is stimulated. The cascade of beneficial effects that follows includes increased cellular function and tissue repair.

Therapeutic Effects

During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.

Understanding Wavelengths

Why Is Power Important?

Wavelengths determine a therapeutic laser’s depth of penetration and power determines the dosage delivered to depth in tissues. Power (Watts) is the rate of energy delivery and energy is measured in Joules (1 Watt = 1 Joule per second). Higher power at the surface will deliver more energy to the desired depth.

The Importance Of Laser Pulsing

Studies prove that pulse frequencies elicit different physiological responses, and that different tissue types (muscle, connective tissue, bone, etc.) respond better to different pulse frequencies. Summus Medical Laser™ protocols use continuous wave and various pulse frequencies in combination with four therapeutic wavelengths to optimize clinical outcomes.

How Does Intense Super Pulse
(ISP) Enhance Laser Therapy?

Lasers operating in super pulse mode deliver bursts of high peak power for a short period of time. Our Intense Super Pulse (ISP) mode delivers a peak of 30w of laser energy to deeper tissues mitigating superficial heat build-up.

“They are portable, user-friendly, and they are running
all day long, helping our patients. The integration
of the laser has been seamless into our busy practice.”
