Photobiomodulation or low-energy laser

1 Photobiomodulation is radiation of red and infrared light that will interact with our body and modulate the biology of our cells.

The two main effects at the cellular level are:

2 Also referred to as low energy laser. This non-ionizing photon energy has wavelengths between 600 and 900 nm, and low power. Therefore, this light heats up little and does not burn the skin. Moreover, there is no UV which is a risk factor for skin cancer.

3 Its lasers have no side effects or health risks. As a precautionary measure, specific glasses filtering this light are worn during the procedure.
