Low-level LASER Therapy
Laser therapy, which uses the healing properties of low-intensity laser (of all wavelengths of visible light plus UV and IR), thanks to its unique effectiveness, lack of side effects and contraindications of specific, as well as the simplicity and low cost have long occupied a strong position in modern medicine. Furthermore, the scientific and practical basis for radiotherapy is actively growing, developing new and more effective methods and instruments for their implementation.
Modern laser machines allow us to apply methods of radiotherapy in the treatment of many diseases and pathological conditions, for which until there was no effective treatment.
How does LASER work on the body?
Other names for Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) are: cold laser, non-thermal laser, soft laser, biostimulation laser, low-intensity laser, low power laser therapy, etc. Low-level lasers are sometimes used in acupuncture, with the laser beam directed at acupoints instead of the insertion of needles.

Intravenous LASER Irradiation of Blood
The first flash coverage intravenous laser blood has been applied by EN Meshalkin and VS Sergievskiy (1981) of Russia in cardiac surgery. Longtime research of Russian scientists formed the basis of this procedure which was then developed further and optimized in Germany. The technology which was little known in the West because of decades of political separation, and were regarded with disapproval.
Significantly reduces treatment time, increase the time of remission, stabilization for diseases to reduce the number of postoperative complications
Outpatient laser therapy reduces opportunities for the development of hospital acquired infection, creates a good psycho-emotional background allowing the patient to cooperate for a long time.
Effects of Intravenous LASER irradiation of blood
- Stimulation of immune response, specific and non-specific
- Increase of serum content of IgG, IgM and IgA
- Stimulation of interferons, interleukins and TNF-alpha
- Increase DNA synthesis of lymphocytes, stabilize ratio of subpopulation of T-helper / T-suppressor cells
- Increase of phagocytic activity of macrophages
- Lowering of C-reactive protein (CRP)
- Improvement of the anti-oxidant enzymatic system with antitoxic effect in response to the increase in the content of reactive oxygen species (ROS), detectable when exposed to LLLT across the spectrum
- Improvement of regeneration of erythrocytes and of microcirculation
- Reduction of aggregation of thrombocytes
- Activation of fibrinolysis
- Stimulation of the NO-production in monocytes with vasodilatation and improvement of endothelial dysfunction
- Fusion of mitochondria to “giant mitochondria” with increase of ATP-production in the respiratory chain
- Normalization of the cell membrane potential
Intravenous laser blood cleansing is an effective and useful procedure for the entire body. People sit down on a diet to cleanse the body of toxins and excess kilograms, and this happens here. Blood supplies nutrients to all cells and organs, oxygenation of tissues and cells depends on it. The radiators of the intravenous laser head are designed to carry out this cleaning as efficiently as possible.
The procedure of blood irradiation is used in the following fields of medicine: urology and gynecology, endocrinology, gastroenterology and dermatology, pulmonology and cardiology.
The intravenous LASER radiators allow to anesthetize and overcome inflammation, normalize the hormonal background and stimulate the work of the ovaries, mammary glands, adrenals and thyroid gland. In addition, the restoration of damaged tissues passes much faster, including soldering effectively.
Useful properties of radiators
The main feature of blood purification is the strengthening of the protection of the whole organism. That is, it not only cleanses itself of alcoholic, narcotic and exhausted substances, but also becomes healthier.
In addition to blood, other biological fluids pass through the bloodstream: lymph and bile. During the session, there is a restructuring of cell membranes and resorption of loose blood clots, pathogenic microorganisms are destroyed. Blood irradiation is used not only for acute and chronic poisonings, but for various respiratory diseases, helping to breathe again full chest.

Topical LLLT is the application of visible red or near-infrared light emitted from a low power laser to help heal wounds and to treat many of types of musculoskeletal injuries and disorders including back pain caused by lower back strain, herniated discs, fibromyalgia, etc. Unlike high-power lasers, low-level lasers do not heat or damage human tissue.
Topical LLLT is used to treat both acute and chronic pain. The benefits of low-level laser therapy appear to be accumulative – it may take several treatments for the results to become evident.
Total number of treatments needed depends upon the condition being treated, the severity of the condition, and each patient’s individual response.
