Low Level Light Therapy

Low Level Light Therapy, or LLLT is an innovative therapy that uses different wavelengths of light to treat a variety of conditions and concerns. The wavelengths can be modified to different intensities and frequencies to penetrate the skin at different levels, which allows it to be used in a wide range of therapeutic settings. The applications of LLLT are wide and varied, ranging from fertility issues, acne, pain or even healing post-injury. This non-invasive treatment option requires no downtime, is painless and is safe for all skin types.

How does it work?

ATP, which is produced in the mitochondria, is the source of energy for the cell. A lack of ATP can be quite detrimental, since the cells may not have enough energy to power important cellular processes. However, LLLT has the ability to increase production of ATP in the mitochondria, which improves the cell’s ability to carry out these important functions.


Lakeside is proud to be one of the only natural fertility clinics in Mississauga offering this cutting-edge therapy.
Egg quality declines as a natural part of the aging process, which can greatly reduce your chances of conceiving. This is because poorer quality eggs produce less ATP, or cellular energy to power the processes of implantation and fertilization.

LLLT has been shown to enhance ATP production in eggs, which means LLLT can dramatically increase your chances of conceiving. LLLT can be especially beneficial leading up to fertilization, whether you are trying to conceive naturally or with IVF.

Benefits of LLLT for Fertility:

  • Reduces inflammation
  • Softens scar tissue
  • Improves sperm motility and increase blood flow
  • Improves endometrial receptivity
  • Improves egg quality
  • Can reduce pain in Endometriosis
  • Can support healthy egg maturation in PCOS patients
  • Improves changes of a successful implantation following Frozen Embryo Transfer following IVF

Acne and Aging Skin

LLLT is also a safe and natural option to treat a variety of skin conditions including acne and aging skin. Blue wavelengths help kill bacteria known to cause acne, while simultaneously reducing inflammation, redness and pigmentation. LLLT also helps to increase blood flow and enhance tissue repair, which means it can reduce signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles.

Benefits of LLT for Acne and Anti-aging:

  • decreases acne eruptions
  • Reduces scarring and skin pigmentation
  • Can help to reduce appearance of C-section scars
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Can improve wound healing ability
  • Can reduce inflammatory conditions such as eczema and psoriasis
  • Improves collagen production in the skin
  • Can be easily and safely combined with other skin care therapies such as microneedling, PRP and other facial treatments
  • Effective for hair restoration

Pain management

Since LLLT increases ATP production, it also plays an important role in activating pain relieving pathways. The increased energy from ATP allows cells to repair quickly, accelerating the healing process and helping to restore balance to the body. This means that LLLT has the ability to decrease pain and inflammation, increase circulation and promote tissue regeneration, all of which are extremely beneficial post-injury or surgery.

Benefits of LLLT for Pain Conditions:

  • Reduces swelling and inflammation
  • Reduces pain
  • Reduces time for tissue healing
  • Accelerates post-surgery recovery
  • Reduces appearance of scars
  • Improves oxygenation to muscles
  • May be beneficial for Varicose veins
