Laser is focused light of a specific wavelength. Light is a form of energy and when energy is applied to tissues, heat occurs. The concept of a 'cold' laser implies that a very low energy, that is, not enough to generate heat is used. Based on the application of very low energy I would question its efficacy. Although, some may point out that there are specific areas such as accupuncture points which may respond to lower energies.
