About


Mississauga Laser Therapy Clinic uses the latest Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT)  system from Bioflex.

THE ADVANTAGES OF LILT TECHNOLOGY

BioFlex systems utilize superluminous and laser diodes of specific wavelengths and power output up to 2,000mW to irradiate abnormal tissue with photons. These particles of energy are absorbed by a variety of intracellular molecules, a process which initiates a number of positive physiological responses. In essence, light energy is converted into biochemical energy, facilitating the restoration of normal cell morphology and function. The result of this process is designed to be curative with regard to clinical pathologies, rather than modulating symptoms, the conventional approach utilized in the management of pain.
