Photobiomodulation (PMB) Therapy using MLS Low Level Laser is a non-invasive, pain-free and highly effective treatment used to alleviate pain and inflammation and enhance healing for patients.
MLS Low Level Laser uses two light wavelengths, simultaneous pulsed and continuous, to reduce inflammation, reduce pain symptoms, reduce swelling, and accelerate healing of wounds and surgical sites. There is no sensation during treatment – it’s so relaxing that some clients fall asleep!
Our MLS laser is the only multi-wave locked system, dual wave PBM therapy system on the market. This means deeper penetration with no heat produced allowing faster healing with no known side effects.
Conditions that benefit from MLS Laser Therapy
MLS Laser Therapy helps to overcome the painful symptoms typical of musculoskeletal disorders, post operative inflammation, side effects of cancer related treatments and more so that patients can return to everyday activities faster.
Introducing this into our clinic has allowed us to open services to a wider population, including patients with:
- Chronic and acute pain

- TMJ dysfunction and craniofacial pain
Based on clinical research, it also prevents radiation dermatitis, so we really are with you every step of the way.
How is the PBM treatment using MLS Laser delivered?
The hands-free component with 3 laser diodes is placed 20 cm above the skin allowing the healing energy to penetrate tissue where it interacts with various intracellular biomolecules resulting in the restoration of normal cell function. The MLS Laser unit also has a handheld component for scanning and trigger point treatment. This also enhances the body’s natural healing processes. In essence, light energy is converted into biochemical energy. Think of this like photosynthesis in plants.
The result is normal cell functions are restored. The process results in a disappearance of symptoms and increases the speed at which your body heals. Other effects include the immune system response is stimulated, lymphatic drainage is improved, radiation dermatitis is prevented, and the body’s natural healing process are enhanced. The beneficial physiological changes noted above are the result in tissue regeneration and cellular stimulation.
