Is Laser Therapy painful?
No, for the vast majority of patients the treatment is completely painless, patients are often able to relax during treatment.
How many sessions are needed?
The answer is it varies, many doctors tell patient there are a certain number of visits that are needed, but I believe its hard to say because each person is individual and responds differently. Usually somewhere 6-12 visits, we tell most patients give us 4 to 6 visits and see if you see a positive difference, the vast majority do.
