Laser Treatment Q&A

What is MLS laser treatment?

The MLS laser is an FDA-cleared laser system that combines the benefits of two laser wavelengths to treat pain and stimulate healing. Ultimately, this leads to faster recoveries.

The 808-nanometer laser reduces swelling and inflammation, while the 905nm laser relieves pain. MLS laser treatment synchronizes continuous and pulsed laser emissions to get the maximum benefit from both lasers. This gives you far better results than you'd get from either laser individually. 

Physicians of all types are using the MLS laser all over the body to stimulate healing and relieve pain in a highly effective, nonsurgical way.

What does MLS laser treatment help with?

MLS laser treatment can help with a wide range of foot and ankle problems, including: 

  • Arthritis
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Neuromas
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Foot wounds
  • Tendinitis

If you’re dealing with any kind of foot or ankle injury or damage, ask Dr. Martin if MLS laser treatment could help you recover faster.

How does laser treatment work?

Dr. Martin performs MLS treatment in the Foot & Ankle Specialty Clinic offices. He customizes the treatment for your specific injury or tissue damage. The treatment itself is painless, and the laser moves through your skin without causing any damage at all.

As the laser light enters your damaged tissue, it has multiple beneficial effects including:

Improved healing

Laser light stimulates the blood flow to your injured tissue and helps new blood vessels form in the area. This boosts oxygen and nutrients, which speeds up the healing process. Additionally, this infuses your injured tissue with more growth factors, the component of your blood that helps with cellular repair.

Decreased swelling

Between your existing, newly expanded blood vessels and new blood vessels, you can flush away extra fluid (edema) around your injured tissue, thereby reducing swelling and inflammation.

Reduced pain

Most patients with musculoskeletal pain, inflammation, or arthritis enjoy dramatically reduced pain levels with MLS laser treatment. 

Faster recovery

Thanks to the accelerated healing, reduced swelling, and excellent pain relief, most patients who have MLS laser treatment enjoy a faster recovery than they would have with traditional treatments only. 

A short series of MLS laser treatments can offer big benefits. With MLS laser treatment, some patients can delay or even avoid surgery.
