Cold Laser Therapy

Shows the ML830 Cold Laser to stop pain and speed healing.

ML830 Cold Laser

The Microlight 830 medical device, cleared by the FDA to reduce the pain of carpal tunnel syndrome, is a wonderful adjunct to hypnotherapy for reducing pain in many different situations including the pain of addictive behaviors. For example, it can eliminate the desire to smoke cigarettes. It has been successfully used to reduce the pain of whiplash, knee, shoulder and back pain for over 40 years worldwide. It is a very popular therapy with many top sports teams, helping their athletes heal 50% faster after an injury. This is a true healing device, called cold laser therapy.


The Microlight ML830® is a handheld, noninvasive, light-emitting, medical device. Cleared by the FDA for sale and use for a variety of soft and connective tissue disorders, this device is a low energy laser also known as a “cold laser.” In contrast to general surgical or cosmetic lasers that produce heat and thermo-destructive laser energy, Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) produces no harm to human tissue in normal use and thus is classified by the FDA as a Class IIIB medical device. Cold lasers used in LLLT have been in use for over 30 years and have a long record of successful clinical studies demonstrating efficacy and safety. The Microlight ML830® produces infrared (invisible) laser light at the 830 nm wavelength via three LASER diodes. A fourth visible LED (Light-Emitting Diode) is used to provide a visible red target light field for the practitioner to target the desired tissue area. As a noninvasive, contact device, the Microlight ML830® is completely portable, very easy to operate and provides reliable and effective treatment options to the practitioner and patient.

• Increased collagen production• Enhanced nerve regeneration
• Increased vasodilation
• Reduced inflammatory duration
• Increased cell metabolism
• Increased pain threshold
• Increased cell membrane potential
• Reduced edema magnitude
• Increased microcirculation
• Increased tissue and bone repair
• Increased lymphatic response
• Increased enzyme response


Through the action of photo-stimulation of light reactive biological receptors (chromophores) in the body, Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has demonstrated the ability to significantly accelerate and enhance the body’s natural defense and repair components in the presence of injury, inflammation and certain disease processes. By modifying the effects and limiting the duration of inflammation as well as enhancing specific repair and healing processes, LLLT is consistent in providing pain relief, reducing injury damage and loss of function, in addition to facilitating more rapid repair and stronger healed tissue structures. Multiple clinical studies have noted the following results of LLLT:

The Microlight 830 Laser sends light (photons) into your injured tissues and stimulates healing and reduces pain instantly. No heat is generated so it is safe for use almost anywhere on the body. Once the photons find the injured tissues, they stimulate and energize the cells to repair and strengthen at a remarkably fast rate. The photons penetrate up to 5 cm into the body, the deepest of all cold lasers. You do not feel any heat from this device. 

This treatment does NOT wear off like most medicines, electrical stimulation, heat or ice. It increases your body’s own healing power and enhances that process. It is a true healing device. If you don’t re-injure the area, the pain should not return. Some people have successfully helped their skin, muscle, joint, tendon, and nerve pain associated with shoulder pain, back pain, neck pain, major and minor burns, bursitis/tendonitis, knee pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, migraines, arthritis, acne, open wounds and more. It’s also safe  and appropriate for children and pets, as it does not cause more pain. It is non-invasive and non-threatening.

An additional cone shaped attachment narrows the cold laser beam down to a centimeter which can be used the same as acupuncture needles for helping various problems. It works wonderfully to prevent acne from coming to a head. They just shrink away in two or three days. The cone is commonly used to help clients to quit smoking and drinking. The use of the ml830 stimulates the body’s natural endorphins, which creates a feeling of well being. This cone is used like an acupuncture needle in the elimination of desire for addictive substances such as cigarettes and alcohol. This cone of non-invasive acupuncture cold laser light is offered here, for cold laser therapy.


General Motors: A double-blind study conducted by GM on 119 of its employees found MicroLight Cold Laser treatment a viable alternative to surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome.
