The LASERNEEDLE technology uses laser of Class 3R to supply irradiated tissue with additional energy, without having the thermal tissue-damaging effect – other than that in case of powerful Class 4 laser.
For a successful effect the laser power must be beyond a threshold value. Weak lasers do not penetrate deep enough into the tissue to achieve a therapeutic effect. On the contrary, strong Class 4 lasers are too powerful and bear the risk of thermal damage of the irradiated tissue.
The LASERNEEDLE technology combines the class 3R laser with a special High Power Density Technology (HPD) and thus reaches the necessary laser power without the risk of thermal effects.
High Power Density (HPD)
The special LASERNEEDLE HPD-LASER (High Power Density) focuses a low power laser and brings its radiation through a special flexible optics directly to the site of application. This leads to an extremely high luminance (the number of photons per area) which stimulates biological regeneration processes in the tissue without thermal side effects.
The LASERNEEDLE technology is based on penetrating laser light stimulating the following biochemical processes in the human body, which are regenerative. The laser light acts
In the application of violet light, a bactericidal effect can be achieved (also see “effects of light”, on right hand column).
- precise irradiation of the affected areas by attaching the laser to the skin treatment(can be done without supervision)
- surface irradiation by bundling the laser channels in the “laser shower”
- Allows bundling of up to ten different laser channels to irridate larger areas
- Allows the combination of different wavelengths (colors) of laser light
- operating in continuous wave or pulsed mode
The mode of action of laser treatment is dependent on the wavelength of the laser used.
Red and infrared light
Red and infrared laser directly stimulate cellular energy metabolism in the cell organelles mitochondria and
- increase the production of the energy carrier adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is necessary for proliferation,
- induce nitric oxide (NO), which stimulates the blood circulation and thus nutrient supply,
- induce reactive oxygen species (ROS), which at a low concentrations regulate gene expression, which in turn i.a. triggers analgesic effects
Violet light on the other hand has an antibacterial effect on micro organisms containing porphyrins. These include many known pathogen structures. There violet light excites in bacteria the production of so high concentrations of reactive oxygen species (ROS), that the DNA gets damaged and the bacteria are destroyed.
A major application for violet laser is wound healing, where pathogenic bacteria are destroyed while remaining the surrounding host tissue intact.
