Laser Therapy Center of Excellence
Medical laser technology has become quite advanced and versatile in the last decade or so. Lasers aren’t only used for cutting or cauterizing; they can be used to relieve pain, accelerate healing, or clear up unwanted fungal infections!
At Sierra Foot & Ankle’s Laser Therapy Center of Excellence, we use advanced laser technology to help patients overcome frustrating, painful, and unpleasant conditions every day—all without discomfort, drugs, or surgery.
MLS (Multiwave Locked System) Laser Therapy for Pain and Healing
Light produces photon energy, and at specific wavelengths (808nm and 905nm) that energy can be absorbed and used by your cells as biomechanical energy. MLS laser therapy is a versatile treatment option that uses the synchronized pair of lasers beams to trigger a wide variety of positive biological and chemical effects in your cells—including pain relief, reduced swelling, increased metabolism, improved circulation, and more.
Additionally, MLS laser therapy accelerates the natural healing process, allowing you to recover faster from an injury, and to overcome chronic pain that wasn’t improving with other techniques. For many patients, MLS laser therapy has allowed them to recover from serious injuries that would otherwise require surgery.
Examples of conditions and situations that can benefit from MLS laser therapy include:
- Heel pain
- Muscle and ligament injuries
- Wound healing
- Post-operative recovery
PinPointe FootLaser for Fungal Toenails
When it comes to treating fungal toenails, laser therapy has completely changed the game. It is by far the safest, fastest, and most effective remedy currently available to deal with this unsightly and embarrassing condition.
The PinPointe laser beam is tuned to a wavelength that is fatal to the fungi that reside underneath your nails, while remaining completely harmless to your own cells. It can pass through nail tissue to get at the infection causing it.
This is a huge upgrade from conventional oral antifungal medications, which were previous approaches. Although oral medications can work for many people, they require daily doses for several weeks and may induce serious side effects in some people. By contrast, laser toenail therapy is completely safe, with no known side effects.
