For many cancer patients a common side effect experienced is a skin condition called radiation dermatitis, also known as X-ray dermatitis or radiation burns. Fortunately, Cancer Rehabilitation & Lymphatic Solutions in Erina now offers Photobiomodulation (PBM) Therapy using MLS Low Level Laser. Backed by clinical evidence, PBM Therapy is proven to help prevent radiation dermatitis, and our patients are already experiencing fantastic results including softer breast tissue, reduced inflammation & irritation, reduced breast oedema symptoms, and accelerated tissue healing.
What is radiation dermatitis?
Radiation dermatitis is a common side effect of radiotherapy, which can damage skin cells as it fights cancer cells. Symptoms include redness, skin peeling, and ulceration. It usually begins to resolve several weeks after treatment ends. In some cases, it can appear years after radiotherapy has concluded.
Soft tissue injuries and accelerated wound healing
The MLS® laser is effective in promoting cellular healing through its Bio stimulation mode including almost any injury to a body part whether chronic, acute or post treatment. The Multiwave Locked System laser speeds wound repair due to the additional effects of reduced oedema and pain reduction simultaneously.
The MLS® laser is extremely well suited for the treatment of dermatologic conditions such as wounds, ulcers, sores, and radiation dermatitis.
MLS Laser Treatment is non-invasive, pain free, and highly effective
How does it work?
MLS Laser uses two light wavelengths, synchronising pulsed and continuous light wavelengths, to reduce inflammation, reduce pain symptoms, reduce swelling, and accelerate healing of wounds and surgical sites.
MLS Laser Therapy is a medical breakthrough therapeutic device with unparalleled applications and treatment outcomes. The laser works by converting light into biochemical energy, resulting in normal cell function, which causes symptoms (PAIN) to reduce significantly.
Evidence based research and clinical studies
MLS Laser is clinically proven with over five thousand studies having been conducted and five hundred clinical trials completed. Experienced practitioners worldwide are taking advantage of the advanced and patented technology to help deliver optimal outcomes for their patients. Kate Perkins and the Cancer Rehabilitation & Lymphatic Solutions team are proud to be able to offer the local community the first and ONLY service of its kind on the Central Coast.
Enjoy results directly following radiation
With Photobiomodulation Therapy using MLS Laser patients are also able to come in for hands free treatment during their scheduled radiotherapy at the Cancer Rehabilitation & Lymphatic Solutions clinic which is usually not possible without this technology. Patients have been thrilled by how quickly and easily they can enjoy the results of PBM Therapy.
