How Does Laser Therapy Work? 

Aspen lasers are Class IV lasers. These state-of-the-art laser treatments used controlled amounts of laser energy to improve circulation in the target area which stimulates the cells to begin healing while reducing inflammation and swelling. Treatment also helps to restore range of motion and mobility to the area as the tissues are targeted at a cellular level.

How Long Is treatment? 

Treatment sessions typically last anywhere from 5-10 minutes but will depend on the target area and your condition. You may feel a slight warming sensation but should not experience any significant discomfort. An average treatment plan consists of 6 treatment sessions but will vary depending on your needs and goals.
