What’s cold laser therapy?

Cold laser therapy is low-intensity laser therapy that stimulates healing while using low levels of light.

The technique is called “cold” laser therapy because the low levels of light aren’t enough to heat your body’s tissue. The level of light is low when compared to other forms of laser therapy, such as those used to destroy tumors and coagulate tissue.

Surgical and aesthetic lasers heat the tissue being treated. True to its name, cold laser therapy does not.

Cold laser therapy is also known as:low-level laser therapy (LLLT)

How does cold laser therapy work?

During this procedure, different wavelengths and outputs of low-level light are applied directly to a targeted area. The body tissue then absorbs the light. The red and near-infrared light cause a reaction, and the damaged cells respond with a physiological reaction that promotes regeneration.

Superficial tissue is commonly treated with wavelengths between 600 and 700 nanometers (nm). For deeper penetration, wavelengths between 780 and 950 nm are used.

Although you’ll feel the laser device touching your skin, the procedure is painless and noninvasive. There will be no sound and you’ll feel no vibration or heat. Each treatment typically takes only a few minutes.

What’s cold laser therapy used for?

The main uses for cold laser therapy are tissue repair and relief from pain and inflammation from minor injuries and sprains, such as:

  • ligament sprains

  • muscle strains

  • tendonitis

  • bursitis

  • tennis elbow

  • neck pain

  • lower back pain

  • knee pain

  • pain associated with muscle spasms

It’s also used to help reduce swelling and promote healing of the joints and soft tissue.

Aches and pains

Cold laser therapy helps people with acute or chronic pain from conditions such as fibromyalgia and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Skin rejuvenation

Cold laser therapy is used to encourage skin rejuvenation. It's used to treat various skin problems, including:

  • acne and acne scars

  • psoriasis

  • burns

  • vitiligo

  • edema, or swelling of the skin

  • dermatitis and rashes

Wound healing

Cold laser therapy is also used to treat difficult-to-heal wounds, including wounds related to diabetes.


Acupuncturists use cold laser therapy for clients who are uncomfortable with needles. The low-level laser beams can stimulate your acupoints the same way needles do, but without piercing your skin.

Future uses

The potential for new applications for cold laser therapy is virtually limitless. Researchers are studying its use in hopes that it can help treat a variety of ailments and conditions, including:

  • traumatic brain injury (TBI)

  • spinal cord injury

  • Alzheimer’s disease

  • Parkinson’s disease

Is cold laser therapy for you?

The use of cold laser therapy is growing. It’s approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for a number of conditions.

Cold laser therapy is safe, it’s also noninvasive and painless. It doesn’t require medication or other preparation either.

Since the effect of cold laser therapy on unborn children is unknown, it’s suggested that pregnant women avoid this type of treatment.
