Q. What is low-level laser therapy (3LT®)?
A. Low-level laser therapy is the use of low intensity photonic energy as a treatment modality.
Q. How does Low-Level Laser (3LT®) work?
A. Photonic stimuli excite the body’s cells infusing them with energy, with the three primary reactions being, reduction of inflammation, cell regeneration, and increased blood flow.
Q. What is it used for?
A. The potential applications of low-level laser (3LT®) are almost limitless, however; to date Erchonia has received market clearance for Neck and Shoulder Pain, Breast Augmentation, Acne, Laser Assisted Liposuction, and Non-Invasive Body Contouring.

A. Low level laser therapy has is very safe; the only general precaution is the use of special filtering glasses when a class 3B laser is in use.
Q. How deep into the tissue can laser light penetrate?
A. The depth of penetration is dependent on multiple factors including mass and density, however since low-level laser has been proven in clinical studies to effect subcutaneous cells; the point is low-level laser, does penetrate; as opposed to the heat lamp devices that do not.
