How Does the MLS Laser Work?

In a nutshell, the MLS Laser stimulates the mitochondria in cells to jump start the body's own healing process.

Laser energy stimulates cells to remove toxins, like histamine and cytokine, out of cells.  They allow oxygen and food loads into the cell.  They block the pain signals to the nociceptros in the brain, and release endorphins and encephalin.  Laser light increases ATP production and cell growth.  It brings blood flow to the area and increases angiogenesis of capillaries.

In fratures, it will increase osteoblast production within the first 10 days only.

Like an antibiotic, each treatment is cumulative in its effectiveness, building off the previous treatments.
