MLS Laser Therapy
THIS LASER WORKS
- Reduces inflammation
- Reduces pain
- Reduces bruising after surgery
- Restores function
- Increase stem cell production
- It produces cell generation
(It gets to the root of the problem and fixes the problem).
This laser will remove the pain, causes the tissue to heal around where the surgical procedure was and will make you feel better.
As long as you’re breathing, what this laser does is the turn on that ability for the body to heal itself.
No negative side effects and this laser doesn’t hurt you at any time.
It does not cut, it’s transdermal. It goes about 5 inches into any body part that hurts and causes pain reduction.
The MLS (Multiwave Locked System) Therapy Laser utilizes a proprietary and patented delivery system that synchronizes two wavelengths, 808 nm, and 905 nm. The 808 nm wavelength provides anti-inflammatory and anti-edema effects via a continuous wave delivery. The 905 nm wavelength provides analgesic effects, with some of the same effects of the 808 nm wavelength and is delivered using pulsed mode laser energy.
With these wavelengths and synchronized delivery system, the laser penetrates up to 3-4 cm depending on the tissue type
Depending on which handpiece you are using, power ranges from 1.1W to 3.3W on your laser.
Time and frequency can be determined by the user or the predetermined settings for different protocols. Therefore the total energy delivered is variable, depending on the condition.
The quality, efficiency and safety of MLS devices are cleared by the U.S. FDA with the following use indications
The ‘MLS Family and Mphi Family’ Diode Laser are intended to provide topical heating for the purpose of elevating tissue temperature for the temporary relief of muscle and joint pain and stiffness, arthritis pain, or muscle spasm, the temporary increase in local blood circulation and/or promoting relaxation of the muscle.
Biological Effects of Laser Therapy
- Anti-Inflammatory: Laser therapy has an anti-edema effect as it causes vasodilatation, and also activates the lymphatic drainage system (drains swollen areas). As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by bruising or inflammation.
- Anti-Pain (Analgesic): Laser therapy has a highly beneficial effect on nerve cells which blocks pain transmitted by these cells to the brain, which decreases nerve sensitivity. Also, due to less inflammation, there is less edema and less pain. Another pain-blocking mechanism involves the production of high levels of pain-killing chemicals such as endorphins and encephalin from the brain and adrenal gland.
- Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth: Photons of light from lasers penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. The laser light increases the energy available to the cell so that the cell can take on nutrients faster and get rid of waste products. As a result of exposure to laser light, the cells of tendons, ligaments, and muscles are repaired faster.
- Improved Vascular Activity: Laser light will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue which speeds up the healing process, closes wounds quickly, and reduces scar tissue. Additional benefits include acceleration of angiogenesis, which causes temporary vasodilatation, an increase in the diameter of blood vessels.
- Increases Metabolic Activity: Laser therapy creates higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells.
- Trigger points and Acupuncture Points: Laser therapy stimulates muscle trigger points and acupuncture points on a non-invasive basis providing musculoskeletal pain relief.
- Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation: Laser therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns or surgery.
- Improved Nerve Function: Slow recovery of nerve functions in damaged tissue can result in numbness and impaired limbs. Laser light will speed up the process of nerve cell reconnection and increase the amplitude of action potentials to optimize muscle action.
- Immunoregulation: Laser light has a direct effect on immunity status by stimulation of immunoglobins and lymphocytes. Laser therapy is absorbed by chromophores (molecule enzymes) that react to laser light. The enzyme flavomono-nucleotide is activated and starts the production of ATP (adenosine-tri-phosphate), which is the major carrier of cell energy and the energy source for all chemical reactions in the cells.
- Faster Wound Healing: Laser light stimulates fibroblast development in damaged tissue (fibroblasts are the building blocks of collagen, which is predominant in wound healing). Collagen is the essential protein required to replace old tissue or to repair tissue injuries. As a result, laser therapy is effective on open wounds and burns.
