POST OPERATIVE THERAPY

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has proven to be highly beneficial when introduced soon after surgery or injury to nerves, tendons, ligaments, muscles and bones. Continued treatment will effectively minimise the appearance of scars and assist in reducing tissue adhesion and the formation of thick, raised keloid scars, that can sometimes occur in certain skin types or parts of the body, such as the chest, inner and upper arm areas.

A SPEEDIER RECOVERY ALLOWS FOR THE RETURN TO A NORMAL LIFESTYLE SOONER.

This method of laser application is highly recommended after:

  • Reconstructive/plastic surgery (Kubota, J. 1998)
       
        Mature Scar Tissue 4 Years
    After a Burn Injury
    Reduced Burn Scarring
    After 24 Therapy Sessions
       
        Thick Red Scar
    8 Months After Surgery
    Reduced Inflammation & Scarring
    After 12 Ten-minute Therapy Sessions
  • Orthopaedic surgery (Paulo, P. Moartins, M. Luiz, A. Pinheiro, B.
  • Andre, M. Marleny, E. Gerbi, M. 2000)
  • Dental and oral surgery (Kutvolgi, I, Tahitotfalu 2000)
  • Plastic and cosmetic surgery (Ohshiro, T. 1988)
  • Liposuction (Czech, T. 2000)
  • Fat transplantation (Katalinic, D. 1990)
  • After burn injury or erbium and CO2 laser skin resurfacing, dermabrasion and skin peels (Czech, T. 1998)
  • Improved success rate after bone and skin grafts and flaps (Cabrero, 1985)
  • After peripheral nerve injury and microsurgery (Rochkind, S. 2000) Non-healing wounds, ulcers and burn injuries will also benefit from an improved immune response and increased microcirculation. (Dyson, 1985)
