Side effects. So this was pretty neat. Adverse neurological effect was seen in those with over 750 milliwatts per centimeter square, which is about a hundredfold of the optimal dose. Also, it was in the continuous wave mode. In the pulsed mode there was much less heating and no tissue damage there. So realistically there is very little risk or they’re pretty much are no real published side effects of using photobiomodulation as long as you have the right settings. So what the research is pretty well conclusive is that a less than optimal choice of parameters will reduce effectiveness but simply an inappropriate choice of light source and dosage is usually what causes the side effects.
