Many cold lasers on the market at the moment are Class III. Meaning, they only put out less than 500 milliwatts of energy. The LiteCure Class IV cold laser puts out up to 10,000 milliwatts of power - penetrating deeper than other lasers to repair tissue faster.
Cold Laser is unlike the typical medical laser that comes to mind. Most lasers you hear about are hot laser for procedures like lasik eye surgery and procedures that involve cutting or removing body tissues.

Plants use sunlight UV rays to function, make new cells and repair
Pain results from trauma, inflammation, malfunction, or less that optimal cellular function. Healing and pain relief come with cellular normalization. Laser light enables cells to perform optimally by stimulating them, initiating bio-chemical reactions, which promotes healing.
During the treatment the patient will feel a deep soothing warmth. This pleasant sensation reassures the patient that the laser is stimulating cellular activity.
