Basis of the therapy
Photobiomodulation therapy, or cold laser therapy as it has been known previously utilises wavelengths of red, yellow and near infra-red light to rejuvenate on a cellular level. Within our cells are mitochondria which are found by the thousands, these organelles are responsible for producing the chemical energy component ATP, which our body uses in every process.
These wavelengths of light remove a limiting factor in the production of this chemical energy, increasing the amount of ATP in our body temporarily, giving a boost to these processes. Furthermore, mitochondria are thought to activate cellular cascades and pathways associated with anti-inflammation, pain dilution and fortify neurology.
The Valeda treatment is used for patients with dry age-related macular degeneration with visual impairment. There have been some promising results with the use of Valeda in the early stages of dry AMD to prevent or delay progression of AMD.
How often you need to have Valeda treatment?
