In order to bring even more laser light into low-lying tissue layers, a new technique, the percutaneous interstitial laser therapy, was developed. By using a sterile catheter it reaches penetration depths of up to 12 cm.
Compared to external laser therapy, this technique has significantly improved therapeutic results.
Also green, yellow and blue lasers, which are normally absorbed already in the surface of the skin can be applied into deep tissue where they develop their anti-inflammatory effects.
