When comparing lasers, the Bioflex laser has 180 diodes per pad compared to 1 to 6 diodes found in other lasers. Bioflex is more effective with chronic conditions because of the larger area being treated.

 Cruz Life Center offers the most advanced and updated equipment, which is often not the case with private in home laser systems. In home Laser Therapists can only offer lasers with low diodes, and cannot properly asses the trouble area through the use of x-rays and a certified doctor. At Cruz Life Center, you have the advantage of optional x-rays, a doctor on site, & only the best equipment to aide you in your speedy recovery.depth-of-penetration-diagram-large                                                                                                                                                                                                The Advantages of Low Intensity Laser Therapy

  • Highly effective
  • Virtually no side-effects
  • Non-invasive
  • Non-toxic
  • Easily applied
  • Cost effective
  • More affordable than surgery or other therapies

Low Intensity Laser Therapy — Short Term Effects

  • Reduction in pain
  • Production and release of beta-endorphins
  • Improvement in localized blood flow
  • Small localized increase in temperature
  • The short-term effect is significant in 5-10% of cases during or after the conclusion of the initial treatment, but is not as important as the long term or cumulative effect.

Long Term Or Cumulative Effects

  • Increase in cellular energy
  • ATP (adenosine triphosphate) production is increased resulting in improved cellular metabolism (more energy)
    Faster healing of damaged tissue
  • Increased protein and DNA production results in higher cell replication rates
  • Stimulation of macrophages, fibroblasts and other cells results in a quicker healing time
  • Regulates cell membrane potential, essential in Na, Cl and K ion transfer (electrolyte balance)
  • Better nerve conduction
  • Neurotransmission is facilitated due to elevated levels of serotonin and aceytylecholine
  • Reduction in scar tissue
  • Increase in collagen synthesis results in healing with normal muscle-tendon matrix
  • More blood flow to the damaged area
  • Angiogenesis (formation of new blood vessels) brings more blood to the damaged area

Other Effects

  • Improved resistance to infection
  • The immune response is stimulated
  • Reduction in swelling
  • Lymphatic drainage is improved
  • The body’s natural healing processes are enhanced
