How is ICALT different from ICLT and how does ICALT work?
ICALT activates and empowers your body to conquer your pelvic pain with photobiomodulation using activated light energy, versus ICLT which is a CO2 controlled ablative laser.

This initiates a powerful, pain-reducing chain reaction that helps your body heal from the inside out.
