Class IV Laser

    Laser Therapy

    Ballston Animal Hospital is excited to offer the many benefits of Class IV Deep Tissue Laser Therapy to our patients. Laser therapy is a surgery-free, drug-free, non-invasive treatment that has been shown to reduce pain, inflammation and speed healing.

    How It Works

    Using a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue without damage, laser energy induces a biological response in cells which increases blood flow to the targeted area, stimulating the release of pain-relieving hormones.

    A non-invasive handpiece is used to deliver the laser light to the affected area. It works by delivering the laser light through a noninvasive handpiece to treat the affected area. Your pet may feel gentle and soothing warmth during the treatment, which can last 3-30 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area and the condition being treated.
