MLS Laser Q & A

What is MLS laser therapy?

MLS laser therapy relieves pain with concentrated light energy. As an alternative to medications or surgery, MLS laser stimulates your body’s natural healing process to minimize pain and inflammation arising from arthritis, injuries, and other conditions.

MLS laser therapy also shortens recovery time after surgery. Recovery times for certain patients dropped by half after MLS laser treatment. Dr. Bennett offers MLS laser therapy to help you quickly regain your quality of life — and even enhance it.

What does MLS laser therapy treat?

MLS laser therapy minimizes inflammation, swelling, and pain associated with these conditions:

  • Arthritis
  • Sprains or strains
  • Sports injuries
  • Shoulder, neck, or musculoskeletal pain
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Sciatica
  • Aching knees

If you’ve recently had surgery, MLS laser promotes faster healing at a cellular level to help get you back on your feet more quickly.

How does the MLS laser work?

MLS laser uses two specific wavelengths of pulsed and continuous light to target swelling, pain, and inflammation at a cellular level. As dual-action light energy enters your damaged cells, it stimulates your healing process.

While the light isn’t hot, it may feel slightly warm on your skin. In time, the natural recovery of your cells minimizes pain, swelling, and inflammation. MLS laser is an effective treatment cleared by the FDA.

What happens during MLS laser therapy?

MLS laser therapy is painless. However, you may feel a faint warming sensation where the laser device is applied to your skin. This indicates your body is responding to the treatment.

Your treatment is brief, taking an average of eight minutes. The entire treatment is performed in the comfort of Dr. Bennett’s office.

What happens after MLS therapy?

You may experience rapid relief from pain and see a significant improvement in swelling after an MLS treatment. Dr. Bennett may recommend a series of treatments to achieve the best results.

Most people see positive results after 1-3 sessions. The average length of MLS therapy is 7-10 sessions. Close to 90% of patients who opt for a series of MLS laser treatments experience tremendous relief from inflammation and pain.

If you suffer from arthritis, Dr. Bennett may suggest an occasional follow-up treatment every 4-6 weeks to keep arthritic pain and inflammation in check.
