MLS laser Therapy Q & A

What is MLS laser therapy?

Multiwave locked system (MLS) laser therapy is an FDA-cleared solution for relieving pain and inflammation. Treatments utilize dual wavelengths of infrared light to penetrate deep below the surface of your skin, into underlying bones and tissues.

This laser energy stimulates cell regeneration, which ultimately encourages new tissue development. MLS laser therapy even improves blood circulation, further stimulating healing and pain reduction. 


What can MLS laser therapy treat?

MLS laser therapy is entirely non-invasive, painless, and effective for treating a realm of different musculoskeletal injuries and degenerative conditions. The team of podiatry specialists at National Capital Foot & Ankle Center offer MLS laser therapy to help treat:

  • Muscle strains and tears
  • Musculoskeletal pain
  • Certain neurological issues, like neuropathy
  • Degenerative joint conditions, including arthritis
  • Ligament injuries, like a sprained ankle
  • Tendon injuries, including Achilles tendinitis

MLS laser therapy is also beneficial for improving healing and shortening your recovery time after foot or ankle surgery. In some cases, your dedicated podiatrist may even suggest MLS laser therapy to treat deep tissue wounds and diabetic ulcers heal, too.  

How long does it take MLS treatments to work?

MLS laser therapy treatments are known for being comfortable and relaxing. Many men and women explain that it feels like they’re getting a warm massage, so they leave their session feeling more relieved.

While you should start noticing an improvement shortly after your first MLS laser therapy session, it can take up to 1-3 visits – each about 15 minutes – to really start noticing an improvement. You should start feeling better and experiencing a gradual decrease in pain and inflammation immediately after every visit though.

Depending on your injury and the size of your treatment area, the skilled podiatrists at National Capital Foot & Ankle Center usually recommend 2-3 appointments each week, for up to six weeks, in order to achieve optimal results. Your dedicated podiatrist lets you know what to expect during your consultation.
