Cold Laser Works for Skin Conditions

Cold laser, or Low Level Laser Therapy, is an excellent option for treating dermatologic conditions. The most common diseases that benefit from the use of the therapeutic laser are lick granulomas in dogs , burns, ear infections and inflammation (otitis), “hot spots, anal gland rupture (cat and dog)  and ulcers.

Cold lasers are used for pain management and to hasten the healing of wounds.  The laser stimulates an increase in various cellular activities that promote a decrease in inflammation and also stimulate receptors that release pain-relieving substances

There are no known side effects with low level lasers.  The short treatment times (often less than 15 minutes) are well tolerated by pets.  Some conditions require only 1-2 sessions, whereas chronic conditions can benefit from weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly therapy.


Applications for Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy is a form of treatment that involves the use of a low intensity laser to address pain and inflammation.

The underlying science behind cold laser therapy is valid, as studies have shown that light of certain wavelengths can reduce pain and inflammation. Lasers use very focused beams of light that can be used to target specific areas.

Low level laser therapy has been shown to treat a wide range of disorders which, at first, seem to have nothing or very little in common.

For example, LLLT can accelerate wound and burn healing, reduce pain in different limbs
all over the body, improve the condition of patients after a stroke, help in treatment of
diabetic angiopathy, and reduce stiffness and inflammation.
The physiological effects of laser light at low intensity are not completely understood, but
what is known is that it has three main effects:
• biostimulation/tissue regeneration
• anti-inflammatory

• analgesic (pain relieving)

Most often the person receiving laser treatment doesn’t feel anything. Sometimes you may feel a mild tingling sensation or a mild numbing of the region being treated. This is due to the natural production of endorphins, your natural painkillers.

A Healing Miracle for Burns

   *Keep in mind this treatment of burns is being included in teaching
beginner fireman. First Aid consists of first spraying cold water on the
affected area until the heat is reduced which stops the continued burning

*One woman burned a large part of her hand with boiling water. In spite
of the pain, she ran cold faucet water on her hand, separated 2 egg whites
from the yolks, beat them slightly and dipped her hand in the solution. The
whites then dried and formed a protective layer.*

*She later learned that the egg white is a natural collagen and
continued during at least one hour to apply layer upon layer of beaten egg
white. By afternoon she no longer felt any pain and the next day there was
hardly a trace of the burn. 10 days later, no trace was left at all and her
skin had regained its normal color. The burned area was totally regenerated
thanks to the collagen in the egg whites, a placenta full of vitamins.*
