Low Level Laser Therapy, also known as Cold Laser Therapy, is an extremely effective non-thermal (or “Cold”) laser treatment, designed to treat and relieve a number of skin, inflammatory and body conditions. Australian Laser & Skin Clinics is proud to provide this therapy in our Melbourne clinics, helping to alleviate, decrease, and reduce a number of our client’s concerns. It works by penetrating the skin deeply with a consistent infra-red laser beam at a long wavelength of 800 – 830 nm, resulting in the stimulation, regulation and acceleration of cell function in the area being treated. It also delivers effective penetration into injured cells to promote healing, restoration and the regeneration of damaged tissue. The appearance creates fresh, clear and youthful skin that is free of imperfections. This treatment can be used on any part of the body and works to restore injured tissue to a normal level in both structure and function. Symptoms such as swelling, redness and damaged skin may also be alleviated. Low Level Laser Therapy can be used in conjunction with other treatments in our Melbourne clinics to achieve your desired results. When performed together with Microdermabrasion, Chemical Peels, Photo Rejuvenation, Anti-Wrinkle Injections, Dermal Fillers, Skin Needling, and Laser Facial, your skin’s healing process is accelerated and results are increased.
Simply put, the treatment is a medical grade laser that promotes stimulation and renewal without heat or discomfort to the affected areas, either on the skin or within. Emitting a gentle beam of light, it works by promoting regeneration to the damaged tissue by encouraging cellular renewal and collagen, as well as elastin growth. This leads to a reduction of the signs of inflammation, redness and discomfort. The damaged area becomes noticeably stronger with increased lymphatic drainage and recovery. This therapy may be used anywhere on the face or body.
Low Level Laser Therapy offers benefits to a host of inflammatory skin conditions such as acne, eczema, cold sores, pain and post surgical inflammation. Low Level Laser Therapy is recommended alongside anti-aging treatments, scar revision treatments and to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Due to the non-invasive and non-thermal effects of Low Level Laser Therapy it is a suitable treatment for both very young or elderly clients, from all walks of life. It is also suited to those with a low pain tolerance or are suffering from poor mobility. Low Level Laser heals, strengthens and supports the cellular processes in the body. It also stimulates lymphatic flow and removes free radicals and waste products, therefore Low Level Laser Therapy is a versatile treatment modality that requires no downtime or prior preparation..
Low Level Laser Therapy is very versatile and is used to treat a range of conditions.
Inflammatory conditions that are treated successfully with Low Level Laser Therapy includes; deeper concerns such as arthritis, inflamed muscles and joints, pinched nerves, back and neck pain, bunions; and superficial concerns such as skin rashes, bruises, eczema, grazing and scarring. Low Level Laser Therapy works to increase the production of endogenous opioids, serotonin, acetylcholine and nitric oxide, which brings oxygen, fuel molecules and other metabolites to injured tissues. This stimulates the natural healing processes and aids in resolving inflammation. Furthermore, Low Level Laser Therapy for pain associated conditions can have a selective inhibitory effect on pain receptors, working to produce a reversible neural blockade.
Low Level Laser Therapy can also treat the following skin ailments: psoriasis, rosacea, acne, oedema, red stretch marks, mature stretch marks, bruising, scars, including new scars and scars on the face.
At Australian Laser & Skin Clinics our Low Level Laser Therapy treatments can be combined with Microdermabrasion, Chemical Peels, Photo Rejuvenation, Anti-Wrinkle Injections, Dermal Fillers, Skin Needling or Laser Facial to accelerate the healing process and increase results.

Not at all. This treatment uses a gentle, non-thermal Cold Laser, therefore you won’t experience any discomfort. Referred to as the ‘therapeutic window’, it does not heat or hurt the skin, producing no tissue damage or other complications. There have been some cases where a slight tingling has occurred during treatment – however, this is temporary and only affects the area being treated. Low Level Laser Therapy is 100% pain free, non-invasive, and can take as little as 5-10 minutes each treatment. Furthermore, there are no special care requirements to worry about pre and post-treatment.
