The laser light is applied, in contact, to normal healthy skin. Sensitive or damaged skin and open sores are treated in a non-contact way, with the laser-aperture held at a distance of one to a few centimetres from the skin. In order to achieve a good, effective result the laser light needs to be able to penetrate the skin tissue and reach the area to be treated.
Infrared wavelengths such as 904 nm (super pulsed) and 808 nm have the best penetration-capacity and are therefore used on deep-lying problems e.g. joints and muscles. Lasers with visible wavelengths such as 660 nm, 520 nm and 450 nm have lesser penetration-capacity and are therefore used on superficial problems such as tendons, skin or sores.
When laser light is applied to skin or tissue it is absorbed, reflected and spread in various directions. The deeper the light penetrates the tissue, the weaker it becomes, therefore a larger amount of laser light energy is used when treating, for example, muscles and joints, as compared to open sores.

Mid-laser reduced post-operational and post-damage swelling. Using this type of treatment, we have noticed a faster rate of healing. It is effective when treating damage and inflammation in muscles and sinews. We have also noticed a positive effect on pain-levels and swelling when treating neck and back problems.
I have worked with Irradia's lasers for 7-8 years, and I am very pleased with the results. It doesn't matter if it's about pain, ischias, tinnitus, inflammation, open wounds, diabetic problem or any other physical issues I've encountered: Laser treatments has dealt with them all!
As we all know, you can't massage irritated or inflamed areas. This is where the laser comes in as a good tool, given its inflammation-suppressing qualities. Reducing the strain on the body during treatments is a big plus.
I was back in the saddle a month after giving birth to my daughter Isabell. This might not seem like so much, but given that I had a C-section, it's actually really fast. It could never have been done without help from Irradia. I treated my stomach with laser every other day for three weeks, which resulted in increased rate of healing for tissue, muscles and scars.
I'd rather trade in my Paralympics gold than my MID-LITE Laser. It's thanks to this instrument that I can continue my athletic pursuits.
As a Chiropractor, the MID-Laser is an excellent complement to my treatments. It's easy to use and maintain. The majority of my patients receive laser treatment.
The MID-LITE laser is a small, convenient, battery-powered device that is easy to bring to the homes of patients or while travelling.
The more I work with my MID-Laser (roughly 5 years now), the more I experience and appreciate the possibilities that the therapy offers. It has become an indispensable complement to my normally OMT/OMI-centered treatments. For some patients, where physical treatments are impossible or unwanted, it becomes the only alternative. In addition to this, Irradia's excellent support and service makes it even better.
I have used MID-Laser for almost 10 years to strengthen the treatments I perform with lymphotherapy on patients with swelling and pain. The combination of lymphotherapy with infrared laser makes treatments more effective and increases the time before symptoms reappear.
Thanks to laser therapy, my customers are pleased and completely free from osteoarthritis-related pain.
Laser types with different wave lengths penetrate the skin at different depths.
Applying laser light at distance, in contact or with pressure results in various effects on scattering and penetration.
