Laser therapy is a painless and noninvasive treatment that produces results in a short period of time. The number of treatments you need depends on your condition. Some people experience improvement from one treatment, while chronic conditions may require 10 sessions or more.
During treatment, your provider applies a handheld laser device to the area of pain or tissue damage. All you need to do is relax while the laser stimulates your natural healing process. There’s no pain or anesthesia involved, but you may need to wear protective glasses if the treatment area is near your face.
