What is laser therapy?
Low level laser therapy involves the controlled delivery of light in short bursts, which penetrates the skin. This stimulates the body’s natural healing process, leading to repair and restoration of normal cellular function. The wavelength, energy density and pulsing rate are all expertly chosen for the treatment of your particular problem. It’s been used for over 30 years to effectively treat a wide range of issues.
They should not be confused with surgical lasers – those are a different classification of laser which treats verrucas by ‘burning’ them away. Low level lasers cannot burn or harm the skin, so the therapy does not result in any pain.
When might I need Omega laser therapy?
Omega laser therapy leads to a healing growth factor response, pain relief and immune support. It is therefore an effective treatment for:
- Verrucas and warts
- Healing soft tissue injuries (such as plantar fasciitis or metatarsalgia)
- Reducing pain in arthritic joints.
Omega laser therapy for beating verrucas
A verruca is a common skin lesion found on the foot. It is caused by the Human Papilloma Virus, and can be identified by small black spots in the centre. They can become uncomfortable or even painful, particularly if they are on the sole of the foot. Although they can go away on their own, this can take a long time (several years or more), and they can be very unsightly in the meantime.
Using Omega laser therapy is effective in treating verrucas because it triggers the body’s own healing process, helping it to beat the virus. It usually takes approximately 2-5 sessions to get rid of the verruca, with each session resulting in no pain or scarring. The sessions are usually short.
Is laser therapy the right treatment for me?
There are many verruca treatments available, and there are pros and cons of each. Many people choose Omega laser therapy because it is painless and there are no side effects. There will be no scarring from the laser, and no dressing is required. This makes it an ideal treatment for children suffering from verrucas.
There are other options too, such as:
- Swift Microwave Treatment – this revolutionary new treatment has an incredible success rate and is available at Northwich Foot Clinic.
- Verruca needling
Omega laser therapy is also a highly effective treatment for musculoskeletal conditions such as osteoarthritis and back pain. The triggering of the body’s natural healing process reduces pain and discomfort, and decreases inflammation.
