MLS Laser Therapy is a non-surgical, safe, and efficient treatment option that utilizes light to help with pain relief, decrease inflammation, and encourage wound healing and tissue repair. It is the most advanced laser therapy system available, providing people with different options aside from shots and other intrusive treatments. Laser therapy is a painless, medication-free, and non-invasive way to support the healing of painful and expensive injuries and illnesses. So, what exactly is it and what can it be used for?
How It Works
MLS laser therapy uses a patented fully robotic multi-wave laser to significantly reduce pain and inflammation while promoting soft tissue repair. Using both wavelengths simultaneously penetrates the affected areas of the body for optimal results. Each wavelength gives different results:
- Wavelength 1: continuous laser at 808 nanometers; reduces inflammation and swelling
- Wavelength 2: pulsed laser at 905 nanometers; reaches deeper into tissue and nerves for pain relief
When both continuous and pulsed emissions from MLS Laser are combined and synchronized, the body is exposed to specific wavelengths of light which creates an energetic synergy. This synergy produces greater anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects than either can produce on its own while reducing the risk of thermal damage. Upon absorption, the light stimulates a series of cellular activities, including the production of enzymes, mitochondria and ATP synthesis, vasodilation and lymphatic drainage, and collagen formation. As a result, cells of tendons, ligaments and muscles can repair themselves up to 30% faster, allowing you to return to your normal life quickly and safely.
What To Expect
MLS Laser Therapy is a totally painless procedure. Depending on the area being treated and the reason for the therapy, sessions usually last 10-12 minutes from start to finish. You will be comfortably seated or lying down in preparation for the treatment and our laser technician will then place the robotic head of the laser over the affected area and program the laser to begin your personalized plan.
Once the treatment has started, the robotic head will keep directing a laser beam over the skin, making multiple passes over the area. All you have to do is stay still and relax as the treatment is done. Some patients may feel a pleasant sensation at the spot of application, while others describe not having felt anything at all during the procedure.
The number of treatments prescribed depends on the type of condition being treated. Each treatment builds off the previous one, like antibiotics, so you should start seeing improvement as you go through the plan. Most people see positive results after 1 to 3 treatments, with the average course being 6 to 12 sessions. It is important to finish the full course of treatments that your doctor recommended, or else the symptoms may come back.
What MLS Laser Therapy Is Used For
MLS Laser Therapy effectively treats pain and inflammation associated with many conditions, including:
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Sports injuries
- Tendon & ligament injuries
- Back & joint pain
- Muscle sprains & strains
- Post-surgical swelling
- Disc disease
Benefits of MLS Laser Therapy
Patients benefit from MLS Laser Therapy in many ways, beyond the healing capabilities of the treatment:
- Rapid relief of pain without the use of addictive prescription painkillers
- Strong anti-inflammatory effect
- Non-surgical treatment
- No negative side effects
- Timely healing of sprains and strains
- Rapid recovery of the structural integrity of the injured region
- Rapid resolution of swollen areas
- Immediate improvement of local blood circulation
- Rapid repair of superficial injuries, such as wounds and ulcers
Differences From Other Laser Treatments
MLS Laser Therapy is becoming increasingly popular as a way to treat both short-term and long-term pain. The advanced MLS M6 Laser, approved by the FDA, is a cutting-edge Class IV laser. The patented “Multi-Wave Lock System” utilizes a combination of wavelengths that work together. Unlike other Class IV lasers, MLS Laser Therapy is able to deliver a precise dose of energy, leading to consistent and dependable results. Furthermore, the MLS Laser has the ability to generate up to 100 times more power than the most powerful devices of the past, resulting in shorter treatment times, fewer sessions, and immediate pain relief.
MLS Laser Therapy is a non-invasive technique for treating injuries like strains, sprains, and even general inflammation. This amazing treatment option is a non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment modality that utilizes light to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and promote wound healing and soft tissue repair.
