Using the LTU-904 to Treat Post Mastectomy Lymphedema:
Treatment using the LTU-904 is used directly in contact with the tissue. The laser does not generate any pain or heat. Target the axilla, the armpit and the breast or any areas of fibrosis
If you’re not sure which areas to target, a therapist can recommend the best areas.
Use on each spot, about an inch and a half apart for a minute at a time. The average treatment time is about 15 - 20 minutes. It is recommended that you treat the affected areas 3x per week for 6 weeks with patients generally reporting a softening of the tissue within the first couple of weeks.
Although softening of the tissue occurs early on, you won’t see fast volume reduction. This is gradual however the treatment will have a long term effect on volume and laser is one of the few treatments that have a long term effect. In the clinical trials we saw volume reduction 3 months after the trial had ended.
