FAQ's

K-Laser is a safe, dynamic, powerful treatment using low level laser to treat chronic pain conditions affecting the muscle and skeleton. It can be used all over the body, for any age and any skin colour and type. K-Laser is pain free with no side effects.

K-Laser works by using specific wavelengths of light to stimulate the body's natural ability to heal. Effects of laser therapy include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling.

During K-Laser Therapy, infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level increasing metabolic activity within the cell. By improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane, the increased production of cellular energy (ATP) is stimulated. The cascade of beneficial effects that follows includes increased cellular function and tissue repair.

The typical treatment is 4 to 8 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.

Acute conditions may be treated daily, particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain. More chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2 to 3 times a week, tapering to once a week or once every other week, with improvement.

You may feel improvement in your condition (usually pain reduction) after the very first treatment. Sometimes you will not feel improvement for a number of treatments. This does not mean that the condition is not improving. Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 3 or 4 sessions.

Yes. Laser Therapy is often used with other forms of treatment, including physical therapy, chiropractic, massage, soft tissue mobilization, electro-therapy and even following surgery. Other healing modalities are complementary and can be used with laser to increase the effectiveness of the treatment.

There is little or no sensation during treatment. Occasionally one feels a mild, soothing warmth or tingling. Areas of pain or inflammation may be sensitive briefly before pain reduction.

During more than twenty years of use by healthcare providers all over the world, very few side effects have ever been reported. Occasionally some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few days, as the healing response is more active after treatment.

Yes. There are thousands of published studies demonstrating the clinical effectiveness of Laser Therapy. Among these, there are more than one hundred rigorously controlled, scientific studies that document the effectiveness of laser for many clinical conditions.

Verrucae

  • Verrucae are a viral infection of the skin, usually taking the form of small hard, raised nodules. These are clusters of your own skin cells infected and transformed by the virus. Many people will develop an immune suppression to their warts or verrucas and spontaneous remission will occur within 2-5 years. Laser treatment is a very effective method of removing them; it’s quick and safe. Scarring is highly unlikely as the wart is killed off by coagulating the feeder blood vessels rather than just chipping away at the surface layers.

    We successfully treat stubborn verrucas and fungal nails using our medical grade K Laser. This works by the laser light heating up and destroying the infected material. The laser energy penetrates the lesion and seals the blood supply so that the verruca cannot survive.

  • How many treatments will I need?

    In most cases, 1-2 treatment for young, small lesions. However, larger and established lesions can be very deeply rooted and may require a number of sessions to remove.

Onychomycosis (Fungal Nails)

Nail fungus is a common condition that begins as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your fingernail or toenail. As the fungal infection goes deeper, nail fungus may cause your nail to discolour, thicken and crumble at the edge. It can affect several nails. Nail fungus is also called onychomycosis. When fungus infects the areas between your toes and the skin of your feet, it's called athlete's foot (tinea pedis).
