Our MR4 Laser uses Super Pulsed laser, red light, infrared light, and magnetic fields to reduce pain quickly and effectively. The mechanism that our laser utilizes is delivering light energy units, in the form of photons, to damaged tissue and nerve cells. Photons absorbed by these damaged tissues and cells through laser therapy stimulate mitochondria to accelerate production of ATP. This biochemical increase in cell energy helps transform cells from a state of illness to a stable healthy state.
Our laser uses LaserStim with TARGET. TARGET stands for Treatment Area Recognition and Guided Enhanced Technology. This enables our staff to quickly identify areas to treat and uses proprietary technology to automatically dose these areas with the proper amount of laser treatment without overdosing.
Does it hurt? What does the treatment feel like?
There is little or no sensation during treatment. Occasionally one may feel a mild, soothing warmth or tingling.
Don’t lasers get hot? How about yours?
The lasers that get hot are Class 4 continuous wave and mechanically pulsed lasers. Class 4 lasers are restricted by FDA due to their high power and inability to use this power due the heat it generates. Our laser is a low level laser therapy (LLLT) by definition. Our laser has super pulsed technology which causes low thermal energy with a high energy density. The high energy density can be delivered over a short period of time with no heat buildup.

How often should I be treated?
Acute conditions may be treated daily, particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain. More chronic conditions respond better when treatment are received 2-3 times per week, tapering off to once a week or once every other week.
How many treatments does it take?
It depends on the condition being treated and the age of the patient. For some acute conditions, 1-6 treatments may suffice. Chronic conditions may require 10-15 (or more) treatments.
How long before results are felt?
You may feel improvement in your condition (usually pain reduction) after the very first treatment. Sometimes you will not feel improvement for a number of treatments. This does not mean that nothing is happening. Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 3-4 sessions.
How long goes each treatment take?
The typical treatment duration is 5-15 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated and the condition being treated.
