Side Effects To Laser Therapy

Are There Side Effects To Laser Therapy?

Class IV lasers are FDA certified. In fact, they adhere to the highest and most strict safety regulations. As a result, there are no known significant side effects from laser therapy to date.

There are positive side effects to laser therapy. For instance, an increase in blood flow. This can cause flushed skin. Some people feel a warm feeling as a result. However, these effects don’t last long, only for a few hours. 

If laser therapy isn’t administered properly, it could lead to an increase in swelling for some injuries. This is especially true in areas that are already inflamed. Irritable nerve tissue may cause nerve pain if overstimulated. This can easily be corrected by adjusting treatment settings. 

Here at Borja PT, we prioritize understanding treatment parameters to ensure the safety of our patients. All laser therapy treatments are administered by certified staff members who have completed advanced courses and training.
