Medical technology advances year after year, and that’s good news for patients. As we better understand our bodies and unlock new technological applications, we continually uncover new, better treatments.
Multiwave locked system (MLS) laser therapy is a perfect example. With this innovative system, Christopher Vittori, DPM, Ameet Thakrar, DPM, and our team at Vittori Foot & Ankle Specialist can provide effective treatment and pain relief for a wide variety of conditions. What’s more, you can get this non-invasive, comfortable treatment right here at our offices in Homer Glen and New Lenox, Illinois.
To help you understand what this therapy can do for you, it’s helpful to break down the MLS laser. “Laser” is actually an acronym that stands for “light amplification by the stimulated emission of radiation.”
In this case, the MLS technology converts the light energy into biochemical energy in your body. This system allows it to pass safely to your skin to support normal cell function and treat pain right where you need it.
The “multiwave” part of “MLS” indicates that this technology allows us to deliver two wavelengths of light energy at the same time. One wavelength fights inflammation and fluid-related swelling, while the other directly addresses pain.
What’s more, the wavelengths help to stimulate the mitochondria in your cells that create energy. This gives them the power they need to heal damage, supporting your body’s natural regenerative ability.
As a result, we can use MLS to address a wide variety of serious conditions.
If you want to see if MLS laser therapy could be right for you, talk to Dr. Thakrar and Dr. Vittori. They evaluate your specific condition to determine if this innovative option would deliver results for you.
We’ve seen this laser-based care work effectively for people with:
Whatever your condition, each MLS therapy session usually takes about eight minutes and is completely non-invasive and pain-free.
Most people see results with just a few treatments, but some people with acute conditions get as many as 10 sessions to drive results. If you have a chronic condition, we can apply MLS therapy as frequently as you need to keep your symptoms under control.
