In brief: Debateable

Cold lasers are handheld devices used by the clinician and are often the size of a flashlight.
When cells absorb this light energy, it initiates a series of events in the cell that is theorized to eventually result in normalizing damaged or injured tissue, a reduction in pain, inflammation, edema and an overall reduction in healing time by increasing intracellular metabolism.
