To maximize your laser practice's effectiveness and efficiency, we encourage hiring laser technicians to apply the treatments when permitted by state law. This is why we have devoted multiple courses exclusively for technicians and treatment applications. Another course we have developed focuses on how to go about hiring a laser technician. Building a great team is such an important part of creating a successful practice, so our hiring course can be added to any one of our packages that does not already include it.

You are probably starting to think about money at this point as you are considering the costs associated with laser equipment, so let's address return on investment (ROI) here.
Laser can be very profitable—if you make a plan and follow through on it.
Factoring in absorption costs, expenses per treatment, staff wages, laser equipment, and more may lead you to ask, "Is it worth it?"
Before you invest the time and money, go ahead and spend 10 minutes to answer that question:
To increase your clinic's success, you must first increase your patients' success.
When paired with our training, our protocols can deliver higher than 95% success rates for many conditions. LTI specializes in facilitating the development of laser-focused clinics, which is why our training covers everything from hands-on treatment application to office administration.
When patients receive high-quality healthcare, they let others know, which drives in referrals and grows your practice.
In our opinion, it is the best form of marketing.
To complement this, we offer a lot of marketing materials and support, including posters...
And webpage optimization.
We focus heavily on creating content specific to patient education, including condition cards and brochures...
...as well as waiting room videos and workshop materials.
We can help you educate your patients about laser therapy by not only offering the above materials and resources, but also by training you and your staff.
Are your staff members confident in explaining how laser therapy works?
Can you give the answer to how infrared light differs from red light, or how watts, irradiance, area, time, and hertz affect treatment dosage?
Do you feel confident in your ability to concisely tell patients how photobiomodulation impacts ATP production, blood flow, and blood oxygenation?
Patients who are confident in their provider are more confident in the proposed treatment.
Give your patients confidence by first gaining yours and enabling your staff's.
Before committing your time and money to laser, you will want to ensure it is not a passing fad but, rather, is a sustainable treatment option in clinical settings. Also, if you are creating a business plan for your laser practice, you will want to find statistics that support the endeavor.
That is why we recently gathered data on the global market of laser therapy and used that information to publish an industry report FREE to you.
Here are some highlights:
"The global laser therapy market is projected to realize a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 9% throughout the 2020s."
The "'U.S. laser therapy devices market is estimated to foresee lucrative growth over the forecast period due to rapid rising acceptance of innovative laser therapy solutions in this region.'"
"Laser therapy is just as strongly recommended for chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy as Cymbalta is; its efficacy surpasses the evidence for gabapentin, CBD, oxycodone, and scrambler therapy."
"'Many global device manufacturers are investing in progressing cold laser therapy devices.'"
Over 400 studies on photobiomodulation were conducted in both 2020 and 2021 respectively, with more than 5,000 studies accumulated since this modality has been studied since the1980s. It is gaining traction not only among researchers, but also among patients, manufacturers, and healthcare providers.
Don't get left behind; learn how laser could best benefit you and your patients.
It can be overwhelming to create a strategy and plan how you will implement laser therapy into your practice. How are you going to introduce it to your patients? How are you going to introduce it to the staff? And how are you going to execute it during the upcoming weeks, then months, then years? Having assistance with that implementation process is something you really need to have before you start so you aren't forced to quit soon after you begin—wasting time and money.
When you know you have proven protocols and treatment plans that work in practice and that you have great clinical support to supplement your training, you are going to be a lot more confident in what you're offering your patients.
LTI's protocols and clinical plans have been verified and supported by others' experience so you can give the benefits of laser to your patients right away!
