We offer the most advanced MLS laser available - Cutting Edge MLS M6 laser system. MLS Laser Therapy, is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and is known to accelerate the healing process of a variety of clinical conditions. MLS technology delivers therapeutic wavelengths, 808nm (anti-edemic and anti-inflammatory) and 905nm (analgesic). An energetic synergy is created when delivering these wavelengths that produces greater anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects than either can produce on its own, while minimizing the risk of thermal damage.
MLS Therapy Laser Q&A
Benefits & Treatments of Laser Therapy
Use of laser technology in podiatry benefits patients by reducing pain, recovery time and risk of infection. The laser can pinpoint the painful area faster than traditional surgical or therapeutic methods. Laser therapy is a safe, pain-free treatment that only takes a few minutes per visit. Laser Therapy does not require the use of drugs or surgery, and there are no side effects or risks that may occur with other forms of treatment. In addition, it can often achieve results faster and better than other treatment modalities. Many conditions show signs of improvement in even the first or second treatments. The primary mechanism of laser therapy is photobiomodulation which causes a stimulation of cells and tissue repair that is based on scientific research which has demonstrated positive physiological effects of infrared wavelengths on cellular organelles and electron chain molecules.

What to Expect During Treatment?
Quick Treatment: Most treatments take 5-12 minutes, depending your condition.
Painless: Most patients do not feel any pain from the treatment. On occasion, there may be some conditions that the laser stimulates, that may feel uncomfortable and even more painful, which will subside and go away within a period of time and with follow up laser therapy treatments.
Positive Experience: Most patients experience a soothing and therapeutic warmth sensation, similar to the warmth of the sun.
Simple Procedure: No messy gels are required. No complex wires or harness are used. Treatment will be performed directly on the skin or slightly above the surface of the skin.
Treatment Plan: The best results come from more than one treatment. Your doctor may schedule additional treatments for best healing and recovery. They may also schedule regular maintenance treatments for chronic or recurring conditions.
Pain Relief: Most patients experience pain relief by the end of the treatment, while others may not experience pain relief for a few hours or even until the next day. Many patients also report improved sleep after their laser treatments.
What to do After Treatment?
Hydrate: Drink a minimum of 1 quart of water. It is important to hydrate.
Activity: Restrict heavy or strenuous physical activity during the first 24-48 hours, but do not stay idle. Maintain modified or light-duty work. Most individuals want to return to normal functionality as soon as they begin to feel relief. This will delay and slow the outcomes that result from laser therapy treatments.
Next Appointment: Upon initial laser therapy treatments, you should schedule a second appointment within 72 hours. Laser therapy regimens begin with three visits in the first week and then two treatments each week thereafter until the pain has subsided, and the desired outcome has been met.
Referrals: Please refer family and friends and share with them your experience with your laser therapy treatments.
** Your satisfaction is guaranteed. If you do not feel the result, you can request a full refund after 2 treatments.
