High Power Laser Therapy
PodoSaúde always innovates. We are the 1st clinic in Portugal to use High Power Laser Therapy from K Laser.
What is it?
High Power Laser Therapy penetrates deep into the tissues and accelerates cellular regeneration by increasing the available energy.
In this way cells assimilate nutrients and get rid of the unwanted products from their interior at a greater rate. Tendon cells, ligaments and muscles are repaired more quickly.
What does it treat?
- Plantar warts
- Plantar fasciitis
- Calcaneal spur
- Post-surgical healing
- Diabetic foot
How does it work?
Nail fungus, onychomycosis, is a fungal infection that causes thickening and changes the colour of the nail, if left untreated it can deform and break the nail. The main cause of the condition is Dermatophytes that are lodged under the nail. Conventional treatments and topical creams are inefficient. Oral treatments are very toxic. Laser light is a revolutionary treatment that penetrates the nail and its adjacent tissue to reach the nail matrix, heating the zone and thereby eliminating the fungus and spores using the thermal effect without damaging the tissue.
It is a quick, efficient treatment with no side effects.
Eliminates fungi within a few sessions!
Treatment of pain
Laser therapy is a process in which infrared light acts on the cellular tissues, thus increasing their metabolic activity. The 800nm wavelength of 905nm penetrates deeply until it reaches the injured tissues, providing water, oxygen and nutrients to these tissues. It creates an ideal environment for healing that reduces inflammation, muscle spasms, stiffness and pain. As normality is restored, it increases functionality and relieves pain.

Often, patients with inadequate circulatory levels, diabetics or people immobilized for prolonged periods suffer from chronic wounds. Besides burns, traumatic wounds and post-surgical procedures may trigger wounds that are difficult to heal. The antibacterial effect of the 660nm light along with the 800nm deep cellular effect accelerate the cure and healing process, preventing formation of fibrous tissue (keloid).
