Photoceuticals: A Light-Based Approach to Care

Using light as medicine

Schedule a Demonstration

What are “photoceuticals”? Photoceuticals are validated through clinical studies and use light in a specific dose to produce safe, and reproducible outcomes. Targeted laser therapy treatments can be used to reduce, or in some cases, eliminate the need for NSAIDs. Through scientific investigation, we can now optimize the desired biological effect to provide photochemical (healing and immune response), photophysical (analgesia) or thermomechanical (regenerative) tissue responses. An ideal photoceutical device delivers optimal doses of light energy using a combination of curated wavelengths and the ideal frequency of exposure to produce targeted outcomes. These targeted treatments improve quality of life and support the continuum of care over the span of a pet’s plan of care, and life.

A Non-Linear Approach to Care

A Non-Linear Approach to Care

A Photoceutical approach to care provides the right laser therapy tool in the toolbox for every condition, and every stage of care. The foundational goal with photoceuticals is to relieve pain, but which tool you’ll use will depend on your patient’s needs.

From Quick Pain Relief to Tissue Healing and Long-Term Care

You have different goals for your patients at each stage of care. The Laser Therapy Continuum of Care is designed to provide you with the right non-invasive tools in your laser therapy toolbox to meet your clinical goals throughout a complete plan of care.

Relieve Pain

Treatment protocols employ higher power to block pain and prime patients for tissue healing. Protocols are designed for treating large areas and addressing the source of pain and its referral sites.

Heal Tissue

After the pain is under control, targeted treatments support tissue healing. Treatment protocols are highly targeted at the source of tissue dysfunction for the cellular repair.

Maintain Relief

After short-term resolution is achieved, chronic conditions require on-going treatment. Simple treatment programs address the target area for long-term relief.
