Low-level laser therapy is the use of low intensity photonic energy as a treatment modality.
Photonic stimuli excite the body’s cells infusing them with energy, with the three primary reactions being, reduction of inflammation, cell function and increased blood flow.
The potential applications of low-level laser are almost limitless, however; to date Erchonia has received market clearance for Neck and Shoulder Pain, Breast Augmentation, Acne, Laser Assisted Liposuction, and Non-Invasive Body Contouring. Erchonia continues to conduct clinical trials on other applications.
Low level laser therapy is a non-invasive, fast and effective modality that has been proven in clinical trials to reduce pain, reduce edema, and promote healing.
Low level laser therapy is very safe; the only general precaution is the use of special filtering glasses when a class 3B laser is in use.
The depth of penetration is dependent on multiple factors including mass and density, however since low-level laser has been proven in clinical studies to effect subcutaneous cells; the point is low-level laser, does penetrate; as opposed to the heat lamp devices that do not.
Like their names imply, constant wave is a continuous emission of laser energy, without disruption, for the length of time the device is ON. Pulsed wave is controlled breaks in the wave, at predefined and programmed intervals.
No, most people do not feel anything. For those that have reported a feeling, it is nothing more than a slight tingling.
The mechanics of low low-level laser therapy is administered is based on the indication for use; however, the general process is the probe containing the laser diode(s) are held in place or moved gently over the treatment area at a distance of anywhere from 4” – 12.”
This is dependent of the application; however, progress is immediately evident.
Erchonia 3LT® devices used electric diodes, which are high end, culminated and strictly measured within a plus/minus .05%. LEDs are inexpensive, non-focused wide range light sources. The primary difference is in performance and depth of penetration. Laser diodes penetrate, working subcutaneously, LEDs do not affecting the surface only.

The FDA clears for market devices and specific indications for use, this is sometime referred to by persons outside the FDA as “FDA Approval”, although it is a term unacceptable to the FDA. All Erchonia devices have received a FDA market clearance or were self-certified in accordance to FDA regulation.
Erchonia Corporation develops, designs, and manufactures devices in accordance to both FDA and International Standards for Medical Device Quality Standards. Prior to release to production, finished devices are tested to Medical Safety Standards for Laser Controls, EMC, and Safety.
There are no code regulated contraindications; however, since there are no long term evaluations on certain conditions, Erchonia does not recommend use on pregnant women or persons with a pace maker.
No, low-level laser by virtue of design is non-heat producing and does not alter the cell structure. The laser irradiation is non-ionizing, meaning it does not collect in the tissue.
Some persons have reported a sense of deep relaxation that may cause drowsiness.
There are no known and / or published adverse effects of low-level laser therapy.
Chronic pain represents a lucrative opportunity for your practice. Today, chronic pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. 50% of all working Americans admit to having back pain symptoms every year. Back pain is one of the most common reason for missed work. It is also the second most common reason for people to consult their physician. It has been estimated that Americans spend as much as $50 billion each year in search of relief to back pain. Find out how the FX 635 can provided lasting relief for your patients who deal with lower back pain and plantar fasciitis.
Thanks to its triple-head, hands-free design, the medical professional just has to set up the FX 635 and let the treatment begin. This allows the physician to see other patients while the FX 635 does its work.
Treating chronic low back pain has never been easier.
1) Have your patient lay face-down on the examination table, adjust the three FX 635 heads.
2) Set the touch pad for the low back pain setting.
3) Make sure the lasers are in proper alignment for low back pain.
4) Feel free to check on other patients while the FX 635 is doing its work.
Selecting the best equipment for your clinic not only can make sure that you have better patient care, this decision can make you money from day one. We offer flexible plans that help to grow your business.
