What is it?
MLS Laser Therapy is a non-invasive, safe and effective treatment that uses light energy to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, promote wound healing and repair soft tissue. Our MLS Laser is the only multi-wave locked, fully robotic laser therapy system available. This means deeper penetration with no heat and the synchronized wavelengths cause a metabolic reaction in your cells that stimulates healing and pain relief. 

The MLS laser converts light into biochemical energy (much like the process of photosynthesis in plants) to promote normal cell function to reduce pain and speed recovery of damaged cells by stimulating your body’s natural healing process. MLS lasers increase circulation, sending oxygen and blood to the treated area, which stimulates tissue healing including cell repair and healthy tissue growth. 

Since no heating is involved, MLS Laser therapy can be used with surgical or metal implants and it is extremely effective for post-operative wound healing.

How do we perform it?

The MLS laser is fully robotic and is placed 8″ above your skin, allowing the deep healing energy to penetrate and repair your soft tissue and enhance your body’s natural healing ability. There is little or no sensation or pain during treatment. MLS laser therapy is relaxing and some people even fall asleep. Treatments typically last 15 to 20 minutes.
