Fundamentally, laser therapy works by stimulating your own cells and giving them the energy they need to not only soothe pain, but also heal and repair damage tissue at an accelerated rate.
Laser technology has developed and grown over the last several decades. Older lasers tended to be categorized as either low power (which were safe to use but were less effective) or high power (which worked faster but could cause collateral damage to healthy tissue).
The laser we use in our office—the MLS laser—is the successor to both of these technologies. It uses two synchronized beams—a lower power 808nm wavelength laser and a higher power pulsed 905nm laser—that work in tandem to offer maximum benefit with minimum risk. Fine-tuned computer control over power and pulse rate allow us to tailor the treatment to the specific needs of each patient.
