During this period, the non-thermal photons of light that are emitted from the laser go through the skin’s layers (the stratum, epidermis, and also the subcutaneous tissue or tissue fat underneath the skin). This light has the power to penetrate two to five centimeters below the skin at 90mw and 830 nm. The laser light isn’t hot(non-thermal) and is extremely safe. laser usually times decreases healing time.
