It’s no wonder that some Filipino patients are not really keen on being applied the cutting edge in medical technology which is the intravenous laser therapy (IVLT) .
Lack of knowledge on how this modality works could be one of the reasons and another is the apprehension over the cost issue. Laser therapy is an innovative approach on non-surgical treatment method combined with conventional or traditional medicine.
A variety of conditions can be treated by this state-of-the-art medical and science technology. Over 2,500 studies have already been performed using low level laser therapy or LLLT and is used throughout Europe and Asian countries like Philippines to treat a variety of conditions.
LLLT is generally safe and risk-free. There is no destruction of tissue with low power laser therapy. The procedure itself is simple. Although prior physical, laboratory assessment and work-ups are needed as baseline, patient may undergo procedure anytime.
Healing and improvement of patients are noted after three to five procedures. Normally, 10 treatments are needed to complete the process of healing. The procedure may be continued until total treatment is achieved.
Laser is light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. LLLT may be considered as an energetic medicine.
Laser is the acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.
Laser stimulation may be used to effect any acupuncture treatment for which needles are typically used. It is particularly suited for nervous patients, children, sports injuries, sensitive areas and ears.
Most people know that the World is an ever shrinking and enlightened place.
This form of therapy is drugless, painless and highly effective with immediate results. After decades of use, no adverse side effects have ever been associated with laser therapy.
Laser therapy is a complementary treatment not meant to replace medical attention by other health care professionals.

HOW LASER THERAPY WORKS
Laser therapy energizes living systems. Four well accepted effects in the scientific literature are:
- Biostimulation / Tissue Regeneration
- Reduction of Inflammation
- Enhanced Immune Function / Antimicrobial
One important way in which laser therapy adds energy is through photon absorption by mitochondria. These tiny organelles which have been called the “powerhouses” of the cell, are found in most plants and animals. Mitochondria are able to absorb laser light which then activates a series of reactions to increase and store more cellular energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
By increasing energy available in this readily accessible form, laser light is able to greatly stimulate the biological function of cells, tissue, and systems and even raise overall vital energy throughout the individual.
Total treatment time should be 35 minutes (not including the preparatory stages of skin cleansing).
The course consists of 10-12 sessions. These will depend on the combination with other technologies and wishes of the client. Daily sessions are preferred for more visible clinical effects.
There is a “salon” session distribution scheme:
Week 1 – 3 sessions
Weeks 2 & 3 – 2 sessions weekly and 1 or 2 sessions per week until the end of the course made up of 10-12 sessions.
Possibility of creating individual schemes combining different techniques. This should take into account the basic rules. The optimal course is 4 weeks. The maximum course is 10 weeks. This is scheduled 2-3 times every week.

COSTS OF LASER THERAPY
Rates of laser therapy treatment depend on the clinic where the procedure is to be conducted, the number of times of treatment and the area of the body where the therapy is to be done.
In the removal of acne or pimples, prices range from P900 up. One needs three monthly treatments and up to see results.
In the US, the average cost for laser skin resurfacing was about $2,330 in 2016, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. However, costs vary widely depending on where the procedure is being done.
In terms of laser treatments cost, there is a wide range of options to suit most budgets! AFT (advance fluorescence technology) laser is effective for tightening fine lines and wrinkles as well as reducing spider veins, sun damage, and acne scars.
AFT is also excellent for brightening a dull, dark complexion. Treatments can be accomplished in approximately 30 minutes, and AFT laser does not require any downtime. The approximate cost per session is between $250.00 and $350.00
The cost to remove mole lesions using laser is also approximately $250.00 to $350.00.
