Earn CEUs with ICEU Courses
Aspen Laser University is thrilled to deliver CEU courses through ICEU, an online educational website that has supported and hosted a number of state and national associations certification and educational courses for a number of years. Laser therapy professionals can sign up today for upcoming courses.
Research and Case Reports
Not all light is equal. Research shows that the properties of laser light are vastly different from that of other light, and there are several different classes of lasers we utilize for different purposes. Discover how class IV laser therapy differs and how it’s helping to treat injuries, acute, and chronic conditions alike.
Foundations and History of Laser Therapy
Einstein developed the theory for stimulated emission in 1917, which was the foundation for the laser. The first successful laser was completed in 1960, and lasers have been developed for therapeutic uses since 1967.
Applications of Laser Therapy
Laser therapy has been utilized to treat a variety of conditions in humans and animals. Treatments are used to reduce pain and inflammation as well as promote circulation, accelerate wound healing, and minimize the formation of scar tissue.
What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is when laser light is tuned to specific wavelengths and frequencies and applied to an organism in order to stimulate metabolic processes at the cellular level. The photon energy of laser light can effectively penetrate the skin and underlying structures, which accelerates the body’s natural healing process. Laser therapy utilizes the wavelengths and frequencies of visible red and near infrared (NIR) light to treat a variety of conditions at their source within the body through safe, non-invasive, and painless procedures.
