Light therapy, also called LASER, is a wellness treatment that involves the use of a light source. The FDA-approved process utilizes short wavelengths of light to penetrate human tissue and promote a healing effect.
Studies have shown that photons in the red or near infrared spectrum have significant healing properties at the cellular level. What this means is that they induce and accelerate your body’s natural healing response.
Your cells absorb the photons and use them to make additional energy in the form of ATP, or adenosine triphosphate. This energy is spent on healing.
Dr. Atanassova-Lineva uses light therapy to treat a range of ailments, including:
Light therapy has also been used effectively on people with seasonal affective disorder and dementia. Light therapy can increase your overall sense of wellness by stimulating energy production.
The light therapy process is simple, quick, and easy.
During your appointment, Dr. Atanassova-Lineva places a small wand over the affected area. The wand administers the light, and will be held over your skin for a set amount of time.
The treatments only last around five minutes or less, are non-invasive, and there’s no pain or downtime, making them a popular choice for busy people and those who prefer more holistic methods of healing. You’re free to resume your daily activities immediately after.
Light therapy treatments are typically performed two to three times a week. Most people notice improvements on their first or second visit. Light therapy is best used in conjunction with other methods and as part of a customized treatment plan.
