What is MLS laser therapy?
Laser therapy safely and painlessly uses light to help to reduce pain, inflammation and swelling and to promote healing.
So... how does MLS laser therapy work?
Laser therapy involves directing light energy into inflamed or damaged tissue to accelerate the body's natural healing process. The laser is placed in direct contact with the skin which enables specific wavelengths of light to penetrate the tissue and interact with molecules within the cells to cause several biochemical effects (see the video above for further information on this).
My pain has been there for a long time, can MLS laser help me?
Yes, absolutely. Laser therapy is appropriate for both chronic (long term) and acute (new pain/injury) conditions.
Does it hurt?
No, high level laser therapy with the ASA Laser is completely pain free. The MLS system is completely safe to use thanks to it's unique safety system. Some patients have even reported that that feeling of having the head of the laser machine moved over the area of pain is soothing and similar to a relaxing massage.
Is there anyone who can't have MLS laser therapy?
Laser therapy can be carried out on most people including children.
However, laser cannot be used on those who:
- Have cancer
- Are under the age of 16 and the area to be treated is over a growth plate (assessment can be given).
- Are pregnant

How many sessions will I need?
It is hard to say for sure how many sessions an individual may need. You may well notice an improvement after your first session or you may require a few more. Most of our patients notice a significant improvement by their 4th session but ultimately, every body is different with some needing less sessions and some needing a few more.
