What is MLS Laser Therapy?

MLS (Multiwave Locked System) Laser Therapy is an FDA-approved, painless, safe, non-invasive, and effective treatment method that employs light to mitigate pain, decrease inflammation, and boost soft tissue repair and wound healing. It is the only multi-wave locked system, dual wave, complete robotic laser therapy system that ensures deeper penetration without producing heat and enables faster healing without any known side effects.

Indications for MLS Laser Therapy

MLS laser therapy is used for treating a wide variety of conditions including chronic pain, inflammation, arthritis, or if you have suffered a recent injury. It is a revolutionary development in the world of medical technology that accelerates your body's natural healing process to help in the treatment of inflammation, pain, and arthritis. Effective as an alternative to surgery or a primary treatment option for a wide range of conditions, MLS laser therapy has provided relief to many patients from acute and chronic pain. Even if surgery is warranted, MLS Laser Therapy also works exceptionally well post-surgically to relieve pain and recover quickly after surgery.

How Does MLS Laser Therapy Work?

MLS Laser Therapy works by converting light into biochemical energy, resulting in normal cell function, which causes symptoms such as pain and inflammation to disappear. The primary biological action of laser results from the stimulation of cellular transport mechanisms in the mitochondria, cell membranes, and epithelial tissues. This action results in the stimulation of RNA and DNA (building blocks) synthesis, release of vasodilating chemicals, an increase in the production of enzymes, normalization of tissue pH, an increase of superoxide dismutase activity, increase of vasodilatation (blood supply), increase in ATP production (healing of the cells from within), and improved microcirculation that increases the supply of cellular nutrition promoting remodeling (leading to faster healing) and tissue repair. In addition, a significant decrease in edema (swelling) is also noted.

How is MLS Laser Therapy Performed?

MLS Laser therapy utilizes light to accelerate and stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. The laser is fully robotic and placed 8 inches above the skin so that light energy (photons) penetrates the tissue, where it interacts with various intracellular bio-molecules resulting in the restoration of normal cell function and enhancement of the body’s natural healing abilities. Basically, light energy is converted into biochemical energy during treatment. This is similar to the process of photosynthesis in plants. This results in the restoration of normal cell functions, which leads to amelioration and disappearance of symptoms, as well as an increase in the speed at which the body heals. Other effects include stimulation of the immune system response, improvement in lymphatic drainage, and improvement of the body’s natural healing process. The beneficial physiological changes are the result of tissue regeneration and cellular stimulation.

The typical treatment course lasts about 10 to 15 minutes, depending upon the size of the area being treated. The number of treatments required depends upon the condition being treated. The typical treatment protocol is between 6 and 12 visits. Treatments are typically given 2 to 3 times a week. In general, treatment plans are determined on a person-to-person basis. Conditions such as acute arthritis may need ongoing periodic care to manage pain. In addition, MLS Laser Therapy can be combined with other forms of therapy such as electrotherapy, physical therapy, massage, podiatric care, soft tissue mobilization, and following surgery to make the treatment more effective.

Benefits of MLS Laser Therapy

MLS laser therapy offers a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Customizable: MLS therapy is fully customizable to meet an individual’s needs and provide the best healing results.
  • Non-invasive: The therapy utilizes concentrated light energy that penetrates the external layer of the skin and stimulates healing in the soft tissue that lies underneath. Therefore, you do not endure any painful manipulation, incisions, blood loss, or injections.
  • Quicker: Each MLS laser therapy session takes about 10 minutes and you can experience results in a relatively short period of time. A severe problem, such as an ankle sprain, may be settled with just 4 to 6 treatment sessions while a chronic condition, such as arthritis, may take 10 to 15 sessions.
  • Painless: MLS laser therapy does not cause any pain. You do not have to endure any heat or cold during treatment, and it is safe to utilize over implanted metal devices.
  • Reduction in post-operative recovery time: When utilized after an operation, MLS laser therapy decreases recovery time, enabling you to return to a higher quality of life at the earliest.
  • Strong anti-inflammatory effect: The MLS laser energy encourages a metabolic response in the cells that have slowed or stalled. This action results in acceleration of intercellular activity and speeding up of recovery, consequently leading to decreased swelling and inflammation that hinders your range of motion and exacerbates pain.
  • Improves blood circulation: Blood circulation is essential to healing as it bathes the area of injury with vital nutrients and oxygen. MLS laser therapy boosts circulation, so you feel better quicker while undergoing tissue healing, healthy tissue growth, and cell repair.
  • Accurate: MLS laser therapy delivers controlled energy with accurate dosage for consistent and repeatable results.
  • Safe with no known side effects: MLS laser therapy is an FDA-cleared non-invasive procedure that has no known side effects.
