Laser Benefits
2142 Austell Road, SW
Marietta, GA 30008
  1. Anti-Inflammatory: MLS Laser Therapy has an anti-edema effect as it causes
    vasodilation, but also because it activates the lymphatic drainage system, which
    drains swollen areas. As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by
    bruising or inflammation.
due to decreased 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 enkephalin from the brain to the adrenal glands.
  1. 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,
    damaged cells are repaired faster.
  2. 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 vasodilation and increases the diameter of
    blood vessels.
  3. Increases Metabolic Activity: MLS Laser Therapy creates higher outputs of
    specific enzymes, greater oxygen and particle loads for blood cells.
  4. Trigger Points and Acupuncture Points: MLS Laser Therapy stimulates muscle
    trigger points and acupuncture points on a noninvasive basis providing
    musculoskeletal pain relief.
  5. Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation: MLS Laser Therapy reduces the formation
    of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns or surgery.
    (Scar tissue impedes movement.)
  6. Improved Nerve Function: Slow recovery of nerve functions in damaged tissue
    can result in numbness and impaired limbs. Laser light speeds the process of
    nerve cell reconnection and increases the amplitude of action potentials to
    optimize muscle healing.
  7. Immunoregulation: Laser light has a direct effect on immunity status by
    stimulating immunoglobulins and lymphocytes. Laser emissions are absorbed by
    chromophores (molecule enzymes) that react to laser light. Upon exposure to the
    laser, the enzyme flavomononucleotide is activated and starts the production of
    ATP (adenosine-triphosphate), which is the major carrier of cell energy and the
    energy source for all chemical reaction in cells.
  8. Faster Wound Healing: Laser light stimulates fibroblast development in damaged
    tissue. Fibroblasts are building blocks of collagen, which is the essential protein
    required to replace old tissue or to repair tissue injuries. As a result, MLS Laser
    Therapy is effective post surgically and in the treatment of open wounds and burns.
