How does MLS Class 4 Laser Therapy work?
Multiwave Locked System® (MLS) Laser Therapy is a non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment modality where light relieves pain, reduces inflammation, and promotes wound healing and soft tissue repair. The innovative and patented MLS Therapy Laser was developed in an effort to produce a highly effective and simultaneous effect on inflammation and pain, exceeding the limitations of traditional laser therapy. MLS technology offers therapeutic wavelengths, the anti-endemic and anti-inflammatory 808nm wavelengths, and the analgesic 905nm ones. When delivering these wavelengths, an energetic synergy is produced which has stronger anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects than either can produce on its own and can minimize the risk of thermal damage at the same time. It is this special combination and synchronization of continuous and pulsed emissions that makes MLS different from other Class IV lasers. When absorbed by the body, these wavelengths of light can promote a cascade of cellular activity, such as igniting enzyme production, stimulating mitochondrial and ATP synthesis, increasing vasodilation and lymphatic drainage, and elevating collagen-forming substances to prevent scar tissue formation. Unlike earlier Class IV technologies, MLS Laser Therapy is capable of delivering controlled laser energy. This unique feature provides a more precise delivery of the treatment dose, which means constant and repeatable results. With a higher level of safety, efficacy, and consistency, MLS laser therapy can help numerous people relieve pain and restore their lives. The FDA-cleared Class IV technology is now the most advanced laser therapy system available on the market.
Class 4 Laser Therapy benefits
Class 4 laser therapy has great clinical benefits, the most prominent of which is its effective anti-inflammatory effect. The energy of the MLS laser is able to accelerate intercellular activity and speed up recovery by entering damaged cells. MLS laser therapy can also help eliminate inflammation-induced swelling by causing vasodilation and activating the lymphatic drainage system.
Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth:
Class 4 laser therapy allows damaged cells to recover quickly. The energy of the MLS laser penetrates deep into the tissues and helps the cells absorb nutrients faster, thus promoting cell reproduction and growth.
Improved Nerve Function:
Class 4 laser therapy is very effective in improving nerve cells. The slow recovery of nerve function in damaged cells may lead to numbness and limb impairment. However, MLS lasers allow nerve cells to reconnect in a more quick manner and promote muscle healing by increasing the amplitude of their action potentials.
Trigger Points and Acupuncture Points:
Muscle trigger points and acupuncture points can be stimulated through Class 4 laser therapy in a non-invasive way, resulting in safe and effective relief of muscle and bone pain.
Class 4 lasers can stimulate immunoglobulins and lymphocytes and directly affect the immune system. As we all know, ATP is the direct and important source of energy for living organisms. Through exposure to the MLS laser, the enzyme flavomononucleotide is activated and begins to produce ATP.
Faster wound healing:
Class 4 Laser Fibroblasts play a very important role in restoring different degrees of cell degeneration, necrosis, and tissue defects, as well as bone wounds, as they can produce proteins such as collagen to fill the tissue defects and accelerate the wound healing process. Laser therapy is able to stimulate the production of fibroblasts in damaged tissues, so MLS laser therapy is considered useful in treating wounds and burns after the operation.
Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation:
Class 4 Laser Therapy rapidly restores the structural integrity of the injured skin, which means it helps prevent scar tissues from taking shape following the damage caused by surgeries, burns, cuts, etc.
Increases Metabolic Activity:
The cell is the basic unit for metabolic activities. Each cell draws energy and substances from the surrounding environment and carries out various chemical changes inside, which are catalyzed by enzymes. Class 4 laser therapy provides more enzymes and oxygen to blood cells and thus speeds up metabolism.
Improved Vascular Activity:
Class 4 Lasers can greatly advance the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissues, thus accelerating wound healing, rapidly sealing the wounds, and reducing the formation of scar tissues. In addition, lasers can also contribute to angiogenesis, causing temporary dilation of blood vessels and increases in blood vessel diameter.
Class 4 laser therapy can reduce nerve sensitivity by blocking the transmission of pain from nerve cells to the brain. Also, reduced inflammation can lead to decreased edema and pain relief. In addition, through MLS laser therapy, large amounts of analgesic chemicals like endorphins and enkephalins are produced from the brain and adrenal glands to ease the pain.
The Difference between MLS Class 4 laser and Domer Class 4 Laser
A brief introduction of MLS Class laser and Domer Class 4 Laser
The MLS Class 4 laser uniquely uses two lasers at once, simultaneously, and synchronized. One laser relieves pain, and the other reduces swelling and inflammation. It has two wavelengths: 808 nanometers and 905 nanometers. These two wavelengths are in the infrared spectrum and are invisible to the eyes. The 808 wavelength is helpful for inflation and is long-lasting. The 905 wavelength helps reduce pain and is fast-acting. They are very effective when used together.
Domer Class 4 laser, also known as photobiomodulation, is a form of light therapy that uses the laser in the infrared and visible spectrums to produce healing effects in the body. Class 4 lasers have a handpiece that is either placed directly on the skin or kept a few centimeters away from the skin to transmit the laser to the injured area. Each handpiece has several diodes that produce light of varying power and wavelengths, including 810 nm, 980 nm, and 1064 nm. Laser light photons enter cells and bring chemical changes to them to stimulate the natural healing process.
