The low-level laser therapy has been accepted globally as cell bio-modulator, used to reach ideal therapeutic effects, acting in the reduction of the pain response, with anti-inflammatory effects, stimulating local micro-circulation and wounds repair, promoting a rapid recovery, which brings a better quality of life to the patient.
