What is Laser Therapy?
There are many types of lasers. Each laser has different characteristics which produce a different effect. These characteristics include:
Energy: measured in joules
Time: Defined as the duration of irradiance of target tissue and is measured in seconds. It is also known as Impulse Duration or called “impulse width”.
Wavelength: Penetration depth is directed by the laser emission wavelength and the type of tissue (chromophores).
Frequency: Defined as the number of impulses emitted during the unit of time (1 second) and should reflect the condition treated.
Power: the rate at which energy is delivered and is measured in watts.
Fluence: Energy Density or Dose
Irradiance (Also known as Power Density): Power delivered per unit area
Emission Mode: Continuous Wave (CW) or Pulsed Wave (PW)
Impulse Duration: Duration of laser emission, also called “impulse width”.
Laser therapy uses light to favor and accelerate the body’s natural healing processes. The laser beam is moved over the skin so that the light energy (photons) penetrates the tissue where it interacts with various molecules (chromophores) that cause different biological effects. It produces a photochemical, photothermal and photomechanical effect.
The patented MLS pulse was developed as a result of nearly three decades of scientific research that studied the biological and therapeutic effects of different emission components and methods.
The departments of biology at both the University of Turin (Italy) and the University of Padova (Brazil), as well as the Department of Anatomy and the Othopedic Clinic at the University of Padova have studied and verified the remarkable effectiveness of MLS Laser Therapy.
