Summus Medical Laser Therapy

Class IV Summus Medical Laser Therapy is an FDA cleared therapeutic treatment that manages pain and inflammation while accelerating tissue regeneration. Laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness and pain.

Studies show Laser Therapy helps reduce pain associated with thes common conditions:

Summus Medical Laser is able to offer a combination of multiple wavelengths and frequencies to elicit the best treatment responses

It has been well established that different pulse frequencies elicit different physiological responses. During laser therapy, it is beneficial to deliver a variety of pulse frequencies. Summus Medical Laser has taken everything known about the makeup of each anatomical part & modified the settings to target just the right amount of bone, soft tissue, and fat. The Platinum Series’ approach uses the largest variety of laser parameters utilizing multiple distinct phases within each protocol. This dynamic range, combining up to 4 wavelengths and frequencies from CW to 20,000 IIz, has the best chance at stimulating all the body’s cells to heal themselves more efficiently.

How Does Intense Super Pulse (ISP) Enhance Laser Therapy?

Lasers operating in super pulse mode deliver bursts of high peak power for a short period of time. The Platinum Series Intense Super Pulse (ISP) mode delivers more laser energy to deeper tissues mitigating superficial heat build-up. The unique high powered 28W ISP mode lets the laser operator choose the proper power output and pulse frequency for effective laser therapy.

Why Are Wavelengths So Important?

Wavelengths determine laser energy’s penetration in tissue and specifically target beneficial chromophores to stimulate the photochemical reaction.

Wavelength 650nm

650 NM Wavelength

Irradiating an area with 650nm, a wavelength where melanin in our skin absorbs very well, will ensure a large dose to the superficial region. Since light can both inhibit bacteria and promote cell growth, laser therapy has incredible results in would healing and scar tissue regulation.

Wavelength 810nm

810 NM Wavelength

The enzyme determining how efficiently the cell converts molecular oxygen into ATP has the highest absorption at 810nm. Regardless of the enzyme’s molecular state, when it absorbs a photon it will flip states. Photon absorption will accelerate the process and increase cellular ATP production.

Wavelength 915nm

915 NM Wavelength

The quicker oxygen is released into the blood stream, the more fuel the cell has to carry out all of its natural healing processes. The peak of hemoglobin’s absorption lies at 915nm, when this wavelength is absorbed, more oxygen-fuel is made available to the cells.

Wavelength 980nm

980 NM Wavelength

Water in our patient’s blood transports oxygen to the cells, carries waste away, and absorbs very well at 980nm. The energy created from absorbing a photon gets converted to heat, creating a temperature gradient at the cellular level, stimulating microcirculation, and bringing more oxygen-fuel to the cells.

Not every treatment option is right for every patient. One of our doctors will recommend the combination of treatment options that is best suited for your individual situation.
