local blood flow
scar tissue breakdown.

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
LLLT is designed to help the body’s own repair processes in cases of chronic and long term conditions. Low level laser therapy aims to heal through increasing and improving the healing function, resulting in:
faster healing of damage
increase in tensile strength of repaired tissue
stimulation of the immune system
