WHAT IT IS
The Microlight ML830® is a cutting-edge handheld device that harnesses the remarkable benefits of noninvasive, light-emitting technology. Cleared by the FDA for the treatment of various soft and connective tissue disorders, as well as certain neurological conditions, this low energy laser, often referred to as a “cold laser,” offers exceptional healing potential.
This advanced device delivers gentle laser energy to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes at a cellular level. With its precise wavelength and intensity, the Microlight ML830® promotes tissue repair, reduces inflammation, and alleviates pain. Whether you’re seeking relief from chronic pain, recovering from an injury, or managing a neurological condition, the Microlight ML830® can be a game-changer in your treatment journey.
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 medical use for over 30 years and have a long record of successful clinical studies demonstrating medical 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 clinician to target the desired tissue area.
As a noninvasive contact medical device, the Microlight ML830® is completely portable, very easy to operate and provides reliable and effective treatment options to the clinician and patient.
WHAT IT DOES
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) harnesses the power of photo-stimulation to activate light-responsive biological receptors (chromophores) within your body. This innovative therapy has shown remarkable results in speeding up the healing process, reducing inflammation, and bolstering the body’s natural defense mechanisms.
By delivering targeted laser energy to the affected area, LLLT stimulates cellular activity and promotes the release of healing factors. This noninvasive treatment has been proven effective in a wide range of conditions, including injuries, inflammation, and certain disease processes. Whether you’re recovering from a sports injury, managing chronic pain, or seeking relief from a specific condition, LLLT can be a game-changer in your journey to wellness.
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.
Published medical studies world wide report the following results of LLLT:
• Increased collagen production
• Enhanced nerve regeneration
• Increased vasodilation
• Reduced inflammatory duration
• Increased cell metabolism
• Increased pain threshold

HOW IT WORKS
The incredible technology behind Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) works by targeting specific light-responsive chromophores in different tissues, both at the cellular and sub-cellular levels. By irradiating these chromophores with coherent laser light, a remarkable energy transfer occurs, stimulating heightened levels of function and interaction within the body.
This powerful interaction between laser light and chromophores triggers a cascade of positive effects. It activates cellular metabolism, increases circulation, and promotes the release of healing factors. These processes work together to enhance tissue function, accelerate healing, and provide relief from pain and inflammation.
Laser light, penetrating much deeper than other light wave forms, activates increased mitochondrial ATP synthesis, produces increased mast cell inflammatory mitigation and stimulates increased Ca2+ ion presence and beneficial reactive oxygen species (ROS) production.
Through the action of photo bio-stimulation, oxidative metabolism is increased via cytochrome C oxidase and photosensitization of hemoglobin.
Laser irradiation stimulates increased endorphin release and increased prostaglandin synthesis. Due to the powerful effect photo- stimulated enzymes exert, both localized and systemic cascade reactions occur that result in immunomodulation and inflammatory mitigation.
Damaged skeletal, connective and neurological tissues and structures react with enhanced healing in the presence of low level laser irradiation as collagen
With a track record of over 25 years of successful use worldwide, laser therapy has established itself as a trusted and reliable treatment option.
What is LLLT?
LLLT (Low level laser therapy) is a painless, sterile, non¬invasive, drug-free treatment which is used to treat a variety of pain syndromes, injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions and pathologies.
Laser therapy can be used
any time a patient requests or needs a drug free procedure for the control of pain, when conventional therapies have been ineffective, or when the acceleration of healing from injuries is desired.
Around the world, laser therapy is rapidly becoming a medical therapy that can heal wounds and fractures up to 60% faster and also reduce the cost of treatment for many conditions.
In the U.K., LLLT has become the treatment of choice for soft tissue “whiplash” injuries and for the treatment of painful post-herpetic neuralgia (shingles pain).
How Does Laser Light Heal?
Healing with the use of light is not new. Light therapy was reported to be effective for many conditions by Hippocrates. With the development of the laser and its special properties, using light as a treatment has gained more popularity.
Low level lasers supply energy to the body in the form of non-thermal photons of light. Light is transmitted through
the skin’s layers (the dermis, epidermis and the subcutaneous tissue or tissue fat under the skin) at all wavelengths in the visible range. However, light waves in the near infrared ranges penetrate the deepest of all light waves in the visible spectrum.
When low level laser light waves penetrate deeply into the skin, they optimize the immune responses of our blood.
This has both anti-inflammatory and immunostimulate effects. It is a scientific fact that light transmitted to the blood in this way has positive effects throughout the whole body, supplying vital oxygen and energy to every cell.
What to Expect During a Laser Therapy Treatment Session
For most people, laser therapy is quite passive. There are no pulsating shocks felt, as in forms of electronic stimulation, nor heat used as with ultrasounds.
Some patients (3-5% of those undergoing light therapy) have reported a slight tingling or tapping in a nerve or along a nerve pathway. Some have noted that they are able to sense a slight feeling of warmth.
But for the most part, the treatment, which may last from 2 to 20 minutes, is not noticed at all.
Following (and even during) a laser therapy session, approximately 75-80% of patients being treated can notice an immediate improvement in their condition. This will depend primarily on the type of condition and the length of time the condition has been present.
Generally, the more chronic or severe the condition, the longer it takes to respond. The majority of conditions treated will take anywhere from 4-5 or 10-18 treatments. Once again, the number of treatments depends upon the severity of the condition and its duration.
If your condition does not change immediately, it may take 3-4 sessions before a dramatic or marked change is perceived.
