Diowave Laser Q & A

How does the Diowave Laser work?

The Diowave Laser works in several different ways. Among these, it:

  • Improves circulation to the damaged tissues
  • Reduces pain
  • Acts as an anti-inflammatory
  • Speeds up the healing process

The light waves created by the laser create the perfect environment for healing.

Diowave uses high dosage laser therapy to stimulate the body's healing responses, allowing the body to begin the process and rejuvenate its own tissues. This new laser technology isn't like the cold lasers that have been used in the past. If you're treated with the Diowave laser, you will be able to feel the warmth of the laser as it targets certain tissues and begins to stimulate cellular activity.

What are the benefits of the Diowave Laser?

A Diowave Laser treatment lasts less than 10 minutes but can provide long- term results. Laser treatments are pain-free and have virtually no side effects. They are non-invasive so the risk of infection is minimal. During the Diowave treatment, you'll feel a slight warmth as the laser begins to affect the cells and tissues that have been damaged.

While acute conditions may be successfully treated with five or six treatments, chronic conditions are more stubborn and may take up to 12 treatments. In most cases, you'll be able to resume your normal level of activity almost immediately. It's important to take it easy for the first few days, due to the body progressing through the healing process.
