What is Veterinary Laser Therapy?
Veterinary laser therapy is a pure and powerful healing aspect of pure light energy.
Laser therapy stimulates and improves healing for many conditions like:
- Open wounds
- Tendon injuries
- Ligament injuries
- Muscle pain
Laser treatments don’t require anesthesia, are painless, and cost significantly less than surgery.
The MLS Class IV Cold Laser
The laser we use is the Portable MLS Laser. The MLS laser is a class IV “cold” laser. It has a peak power of 25 watts.
Cold lasers, also called therapy lasers, are different than surgical lasers. Surgical lasers cut through tissue. Cold lasers emit energy to promote healing and alleviate pain.
Our MLS laser is different than other commercial lasers because it provides dual emissions.
In other words, it offers two different types of emissions at the same time:
- Continuous Emission
- Pulsated Emission
Each type of emission helps pet patients in different ways.
The main benefits of continuous emission are powerful anti-inflammatory effects.
It also helps reduce edema and has secondary analgesic effects.
Pulsated emission provides powerful analgesic relief.
In addition, the MLS laser offers some anti-inflammatory effects.
The MLS Laser is the first laser on the market laser to allow both emissions at the same time.
Options are unlimited because we can change the:
- Emission rhythm
- Maximum coordination
- Intervals of intensity
In other words, we can fine-tune the laser treatment for your pet’s particular needs.
