If you have a painful or debilitating condition, here’s how MLS Laser Therapy treatments can help.
Multiwave Locked System (MLS) Laser Therapy has been gaining popularity in recent years as a highly effective pain and inflammation treatment. However, types of this evidence-based technology have been around in clinical practices all over the world for more than 40 years.
Unlike other forms of laser technology, MLS treatments rely on two wavelengths of light energy delivered to a treatment site in a synchronized manner. One involves a continuous beam of energy that triggers blood flow and the lymphatic system, which reduces swelling and inflammation.
At the same time, MLS systems administer pulses of light energy. The pulsing wavelengths disrupt pain signals going to the brain, providing an analgesic effect.
As your body absorbs these wavelengths of light, you can experience:
On top of that, MLS Laser Therapy takes less than 10 minutes, is painless, and doesn’t require incisions, medications, or downtime. However, it can take time and several sessions to see lasting results because of how MLS Laser Therapy works on a cellular level.
Of all the people undergoing MLS Laser Therapy, 85-90% experience significant relief from pain and inflammation. But it doesn’t happen immediately. Instead, you need a series of treatment sessions to achieve the best results.
When you have MLS Laser Therapy, the therapeutic light passes through your skin, harmlessly penetrating up to 4-5 centimeters below its surface. As light enters the damaged cells in the treatment site, it triggers inter-cellular activity and activates the healing process, including accelerated cellular growth and reproduction deep inside your tissues.
Exposing these cells to this targeted light increases the amount of energy cells in the treatment site have access to and helps them absorb these nutrients faster. It also causes them to eliminate waste products. This therapeutic process continues until your cells recover, completing the healing process.
In most cases, you can usually expect to see improvement from your treatments within three sessions. However, it’s common to need 7-10 treatments to get optimal results. That means it’s essential to complete a full course of treatment, or your symptoms could recur. And, depending on your condition, Dr. Fiks could recommend ongoing treatments periodically to maintain your results.
