Below Are Answers to Some of Our Patients’ Most Frequently Asked Questions About the CGLT System
What Exactly is LaserTech’s CGLT System?
After years of research, development and countless trials, Frederick Kahn, MD, FRCS, a Canadian vascular surgeon with a full team of well-known laser experts, created the computer-guided laser therapy system that is used here at LaserTech today. The incredibly efficient and innovative technology behind this system is capable of effectively reducing your chronic pain – whether it be neurological or musculoskeletal – and promoting fast tissue and nerve healing, all without any incisions, sutures, drugs or invasive procedures.
LaserTech’s CGLT system is carefully manufactured to ensure the utmost precision, both with the lasers and the computer software. Our compassionate and highly experienced pain management team employ a layered absorption process (LAP), and have even taken the time to add additional lasers to our full arsenal of technologies to ensure we’re able to deliver the results you seek, even when other popular treatments have failed to provide you with the relief you desire.
How Does LaserTech’s CGLT System Work?
Lasers, which are essentially just concentrated beams of light, are utilized in a vast array of industries and applications in today’s tech-savvy world. Some of the applications that come to many of our minds are lasers’ use in industrial settings, internal surgery, eye surgery and skin treatments, just to name a few. A laser’s concentration is positively correlated with the heat and power of that laser, meaning the more highly concentrated, the hotter and more intense, or powerful that laser will be. However, colder lasers are the opposite in that they have less destructive and reduced burning effects. At LaserTech, we utilize a CGLT system that is rooted in cold penetration laser technology, because we’re dealing with human skin, tissues and nerves, not steel.
Cold, low-level laser therapy has been studied in-depth for more than 30 years, and has consistently shown to have significant positive effects on human tissue and nerves in a wide variety of ways. With more than 2,600 peer-reviewed research articles investigating the effects of cold laser treatments on both human and animal tissue and nerves, you can rest assured the technology we’re using has been carefully manufactured, thoroughly tested and continually monitored.
The effects this CGLT system has on your problematic or damaged tissues is referred to as photo bio-stimulation, due to the fact that it stimulates positive change in areas that require it, but it does not have any effect whatsoever on the surrounding healthy tissues, organs or nerves – it’s that(space)precise. The technology may be confusing and complex, but the end result, being pain relief, couldn’t be more straightforward.
What Are the CGLT System’s Indicated Uses?
LaserTech’s CGLT system is used to provide relief and reduce chronic pain associated with the following conditions:
- Spinal Stenosis

What Sets LaserTech’s CGLT Treatments Apart from Other Popular Treatments?
One of the primary benefits of choosing LaserTech’s CGLT treatment versus other popular treatment options is the fact that you can experience total pain relief without having to undergo invasive surgeries or face the unnecessary dangers of injections and addictive prescription drugs. Countless clinical research studies have demonstrated that drugs prescribed for pain offer very little benefits and carry large risks, such as serious adverse effects. Cortisone injections are a very commonly used method of pain management; however, they offer very little benefits and any positive effects that you do experience are likely to be extremely temporary/short-term.
While surgery is always an option, it should only be used as an absolute last resort, seeing as it involves far more risks and potential complications than any other course of treatment. While prescription pain medications, injections and surgery may be a good option for some people, it’s not right for everyone – and thankfully that’s where LaserTech comes into play. We’ve helped thousands of patients find fast, long-term relief in a completely non-invasive fashion, and we’d love nothing more than to have the opportunity to do the same for you.
How is the LaserTech CGLT System Different from Other Laser Systems?
The scientific and medical communities have known for years that lasers can have incredibly positive healing effects for patients suffering from chronic pain. However, the majority of lasers never had enough power or accuracy, nor were they able to penetrate as deep as they needed to in order to deliver a truly effective treatment. Thanks to the innovative technology utilized in LaserTech’s CGLT system, these difficulties and shortcomings have been overcome once and for all. Our CGLT system offers an amazing level of power and accuracy, and is capable of penetrating even the deepest of tissues.
What Results Should I Expect to See?
We are proud to say that most of our patients experience significant pain relief in a very short period of time. The number of treatments your unique situation requires will vary depending on your age, the type and severity of your condition, the extent of injury or degeneration, your overall state of health, lifestyle habits, etc.
Is the LaserTech CGLT System FDA-Cleared?
Yes, it is indeed! Our technology has received 510(k) notification for the treatment of chronic pain caused by severe musculoskeletal conditions.
How Exactly Does the CGLT System Relieve Pain?
LaserTech’s CGLT technology works to relieve your chronic pain symptoms by stimulating your body to release its own natural pain killers and anti-inflammatory chemicals, while also accelerating the restoration of healthy tissue and increasing circulation and blood supply. All of this works to provide fast, significant and long-lasting pain relief while also repairing any damaged tissues, joints, discs, muscles, nerves, ligaments, etc. So we don’t just relieve your pain, we promote overall healing as well, so you can get back to living a healthy life to the fullest.
Can I Use LaserTech’s CGLT Treatment After Surgery, or is That Not Recommended?
Absolutely! There is no problem whatsoever with using the CGLT system after you’ve already had surgery. In fact, this treatment has been used many times as a follow-up type of therapy for patients who have undergone surgery and continue to experience pain following the procedure. If you’ve recently undergone a knee or hip replacement surgery, or any other type of surgical procedure for that matter, and you still have persistent pain lingering around, give us a call today. We can help.
How Can I Find Out if I am a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
There’s only one way to find out if our CGLT treatment is right for you – schedule a consultation with one of our friendly, extremely knowledgeable doctors today. During this free, 20-30 minute consultation, the doctor will obtain your pertinent past medical history, ask you specific questions about your condition, pain, lifestyle, etc., and review any X-rays, MRIs, CT scans or other reports/images you may have. Our doctor will then explain in a detailed and easy-to-understand manner how this treatment can help relieve your pain, and also give you a tentative timeframe of when you can expect to experience relief and a good overall response to treatment.
If, at that time, you are deemed a good candidate for this treatment, you will have the option to undergo your first CGLT treatment that very same day!
Does the CGLT Treatment Hurt? What Exactly Does it Feel Like?
LaserTech’s low-level laser treatments don’t hurt at all; in fact, they’re really quite comfortable. It’s understandable why many patients worry that laser therapy will burn, but we assure you all lasers we use are cold, so the possibility of feeling a burning sensation is utterly impossible. Our CGLT therapy is aimed at the target/problem area and applied directly to your skin – there are no needles, sutures, anesthetics or pain involved whatsoever, meaning downtime is virtually nonexistent. You may feel a very mild, warm sensation, but that will be all.
The treatment is so comfortable, in fact, that patients often sleep, listen to music, read, have a drink or enjoy a nice conversation with our friendly, highly qualified laser therapist.
Ultimately, our lasers provide our patients a significant boost in cellular energy and healing potential and due to this, they have been able to resolve chronic pain for many.
