MLS Laser: An FDA-approved Non-Invasive Treatment for a Wide Range of Foot and Ankle Problems

Advanced Foot and Ankle Center is excited to announce the addition of a brand new class IV dual wavelength laser!  We are confident that it will be beneficial to patients suffering from both aLaser-Blogcute and chronic pain and inflammatory problems.  Please take a minute to learn about this promising new treatment.


The MLS (Multiwave Locked System) laser is a Class IV “cold” diode laser and has been approved by the FDA. There are multiple supporting clinical trials and studies conducted in our country’s finest institutions, including Harvard.


MLS uses two different wavelengths in continuous and pulsed emissions. The 808 nm wavelength is primarily for vasodilation, anti-inflammatory and anti-edema effects. The 905 nm wavelength is used to directly address pain by acting on the superficial nerve receptors.


The photons of laser energy penetrate to a depth of 4cm into tissue layers and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth.  As a result of exposure to the MLS Laser, the cells of tendons, ligaments and muscles repair themselves faster.  It simply kick starts the body’s own healing response.


10 Benefits of MLS Laser Therapy

    • Anti-Inflammatory effect
    • Analgesic (reduced pain) effect
    • Accelerated tissue repair and cell growth
    • Improved vascular activity
    • Increases metabolic activity
    • Stimulation of trigger Ppints
    • Reduced fibrous tissue formation
    • Improved nerve function
    • Immunoregulation
    • Faster wound healing


MLS Laser Therapy effectively treats pain associated with:

    • Tendon & ligament injuries
    • Sore muscles, muscle strains & tears
    • Degenerative joint conditions including arthritis
    • Neuropathy and neuromas
    • Plantar fasciitis (heel and/or arch pain)
