Pain is a general term that describes uncomfortable sensations in the body. It stems from activation of the nervous system. Pain can range from annoying to debilitating, and it can feel like a sharp stabbing or a dull ache. Pain can also be described as throbbing, stinging, sore, and pinching. Pain can be consistent, can start and stop frequently, or can appear only under some conditions. People respond to pain differently. Some people have a high tolerance for pain, while others have a low tolerance. For this reason, pain is highly subjective.Pain caused by inflammation can be treated with laser therapy. Laser light does this by reducing the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines activated by inflammasomes. Laser light also reduces the production of Tumor Necrosis Factor Alfa (TNF-α) and interferon. Repeated treatments have been shown to lead to a significant reduction in central sensitization, or hypersensitivity of the central nervous system due to chronic pain. Our product the Softcure™ 96 was found by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be so safe and effective that it was cleared for Prescription and Over-The-Counter sale.
Laser Therapy works at the cellular level to affect pain reduction. The body produces pro-inflammatory cytokines to fight off pathogens in the early stages of infection. This response works well at first but becomes problematic when chronic. Laser light reduces the cells production of pro-inflammatory cytokines thus reducing inflammation. Laser light increases the ability of the mitochondria in the cell to produce ATP which powers all cell activity. Laser light increases the production of nitric oxide which is a vasodilator thus increasing the flow of nutrients to the damaged area. Laser light increase the production of hydrogen peroxide which kills pathogens.
Whether by accident or by medical procedure everyone will experience wounds and scars. Wounds that persist and are hard to heal can cause emotional anxiety and physical pain. Of the various medical procedures to heal wounds and resolve scar tissue laser therapy is a painless and very effective option. Laser therapy improves collagen production and alignment in the skin to repair even slow-healing wounds.
External, or cutaneous wounds, like cuts, scrapes, incisions, or any break in the skin take time to heal. Most minor wounds mend quickly on their own, larger ones can require intensive care for weeks to properly resolve. Some chronic conditions, like diabetes, can cause the wound healing process to stall prolonging wound repair.Laser therapy increases cellular energy and increases cell proliferation by stimulating cellular metabolic processes as well as regulating signaling pathways responsible for wound repair. These signaling pathways include cell migration, DNA synthesis, cell mitosis (replication) and protein secretion. Laser light increases vasodilation thus increasing blood flow in the wound area. This increases collagen production, basil fibroblast growth, Keratin and Platelet production. In addition to assisting the wound healing process, laser therapy can reduce inflammation which causes pain in wounds.
Scars form when the deep layer of the skin that contains blood capillaries, nerve endings, hair follicles, and other structures called the dermis is damaged and the body forms new collagen fibers to repair it. This can occur because of cuts, scrapes, pregnancy stretch marks or disease. Scars can cause anxiety, embarrassment and lack of confidence.In new skin collagen proteins arrange smoothly in a matrix. Scarred skin has random arrangement of collagen proteins. Treatments to repair the appearance of scars generally begin by re-injuring the scar tissue so the collagen can realign properly. Treatments like injections, micro needling and dermabrasion do this. Laser therapy has been shown to promote reorganization of collagen proteins without reinjuring the scar tissues which reduces the appearance of the scar.
Scar restoration and wound care involve significant treatment. Generally, repeated visits to a clinic to resolve these maladies are required. Portable laser devices like the Softcure™ 96 allow you to self-treat these conditions with a painless, safe instrument in the comfort of your own home.
