How Do Low Level Lasers Work?

Erchonia uses low level lasers in the visible light spectrum. The primary mechanism for the absorption of visible light photons is the elevation of electrons to higher energy levels. This is known as molecular excitement and can be explained deeper through visible/ UV Spectroscopy.

Visible light photons match the energy volt (eV) or frequency between the orbits of electrons to move the electron to a higher state (excite). It is in this excited state that chemical reactions of molecules occur. One of the most important chemical reactions is when photons of visible light energy strike certain atoms, that energy may push an electron to a higher energy level where it can be picked up by an electron acceptor. The electron transport chain uses the high-energy electrons to convert ADP into ATP. The electron transport chain (ETC) is the primary source of ATP production in the body and is vital for life!

Electron Transport Chain

The electron transport chain is a series of four protein complexes that couple redox reactions, creating an electrochemical gradient that leads to the creation of ATP in a complete system named oxidative phosphorylation. It occurs in mitochondria in both cellular respiration and photosynthesis.

This process can not happen with infrared lasers.

The electron flow starts at complexes 1, 2, 3 and 4 then makes ATP once it reaches complex 5 (known as ATP synthase). The electron flow is limited or completely blocked if there is a “kink” in the hose. The laser targets the complexes to unkink the hose.


Power & Penetration Myth

One of, if not the biggest, misconceptions in the world of laser therapy is that you need higher powered lasers using longer wavelengths to penetrate deeper into the body. The thought that more power means deeper penetration is not only a false claim backed by no research or any relevance to clinical data, but this concept can also be dangerous when used as a therapy without properly understanding how it works. So, let’s dive “deeper” into the argument of more power, more penetration.

Clinical Trials

Erchonia has always used LEDs as the placebo device in their randomized, double-blind, multi-center, placebo-controlled clinical trials to prove the efficacy of trur cold lasers over LEDs. Don’t devalue your practice with cheap, at-home LEDs.


Which Hand Held Laser Is Right For You?

Dual Red Lasers (635nm)

Entry Level Laser

The revolutionary XLR8 handheld laser therapy device. This dual-diode work horse was the first to receive FDA clearance for chronic neck & shoulder pain and has stood as a pillar in laser therapy for 10+ years.

This is our most popular entry-level laser — New to laser therapy? Then the XLR8 is the laser for you!

Violet & Red Laser

(405nm & 635nm)
Most Popular

The EVRL, since its release, has become our most popular handheld device by offering the versatility of a red and violet wavelength taking outcomes to a whole new level. By combining these two specific wavelengths into one treatment modality, patients received better results during clinical studies than using just 635nm alone. This device also has the unique ability for antibacterial & antimicrobial treatments. Experience the versatility of this incredible technology

(520nm & 405nm)

New Release

The GVL was shown to be the most effective wavelength combination for the increase of ROM and decrease in pain in a single session. This is currently the first and only green wavelength laser FDA cleared for pain and inflammation. Unique to the green wavelength is the ability to affect complex 3 in the ETC. No other wavelength can impact this complex, and it is critical for moving to complex 4 to produce ATP.

A Growing Business Opportunity

New medical uses for LLLT are being researched every day, and more scientific and medical professionals are recognizing the treatment’s many advantages. With a boom in research and popularity, the potential for LLLT in pain relief treatment is limitless.

Any medical professional understands the significant benefits of an effective handheld treatment option. The “smartphone” size of the cord-free EVRL device allows for easy portability between offices and enables staff to spend less time setting up equipment before each session. The intuitive GUI also ensures ease of use without any training or extensive knowledge.

Those advantages combined with the unparalleled benefits of the device’s powerful red and violet laser pain treatments ensure that this unique device is a superb addition to any medical setting.

Erchonia’s handheld cold lasers for doctors, chiropractors and other healthcare professionals are also extremely easy to use. The lightweight, cord-free handheld design offers easy portability to transport between rooms or clinics, allowing staff to spend less time setting up equipment and more time on patient care. The intuitive GUI also ensures that anyone can use the device with ease — staff won’t need extensive training to operate this easy-to-use tool.
