For many people, the idea of a laser summons the idea of something suited for outer space. However, lasers are providing breakthroughs in the field of medicine.
The word “laser” stands for “light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation.” Fortunately, you can think of lasers in far more general terms when it comes to medicine. Basically, laser therapy uses powerful beams of light to heal.
At Southern Pain and Spine Specialists, located in Charlotte, NC., we bring the future in pain management to our patients. One proven treatment involves MLS Laser Therapy. If you have chronic pain, here’s how this laser system could help you!
Introducing MLS Laser Therapy
The FDA-cleared MLS laser system harnesses the power of light to activate the healing processes in the body. This may sound like science fiction, but the system uses certain wavelengths to trigger a specific biological reaction in your body. It’s similar to photosynthesis, in which plants gain energy on a cellular level from the sun.
When exposed to the therapeutic light from the MLS laser system, it activates a cellular process in your body that:
- Stimulates the immune system
- Increases blood flow
- Promotes remodeling and tissue repair
- Reduces swelling by improving drainage in your lymphatic system
- Improves nerve function
- Enhances and accelerates your body’s natural ability to heal
When to consider MLS Laser Therapy
This powerful yet gentle treatment can relieve a wide range of painful conditions, including:
Plus, MLS Laser Therapy can provide relief without the need for injections. And, it comes with an 85-90% efficacy rate in relieving pain and inflammation, which can eliminate the need for surgery or prescription painkillers.
But the best part? MLS Laser Therapy can take less than 15 minutes!
What to expect from MLS Laser Therapy
Undergoing MLS Laser Therapy is quick, painless, and fast. You simply sit back and let the robotic system do the work.
During your treatment, we position the MLS laser system approximately 8 inches above your injury location. Once activated, you may notice a comfortable, relaxing sensation at the application site.
MLS Laser Therapy doesn’t require any downtime, so you can resume your normal activities immediately after your appointment. However, our team at Southern Pain And Spine Specialists could have personalized recommendations based on your injury and its location.
Most patients see improvement within 1-3 treatments. However, our doctor Dr. Alamarie, MD could recommend more sessions or ongoing therapy depending on your injury.

How Does It Work?
MLS laser therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions. Light energy enters the damaged cells and stimulates inter-cellular activity. This reduces pain in the area and speeds recovery of the damaged cells. Once the cells recover, the healing process is complete.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
MLS laser therapy is a painless treatment that lasts an average of 8 minutes. You may experience a comfortable sensation at the point of application.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
Most people experience positive results in 1-3 treatments, with the average course of treatment being 7-10 sessions. Swelling is greatly reduced and there is a rapid relief of pain. Acute conditions usually subside quickly, typically within one phase of treatments, while chronic conditions can be controlled with regular treatments.
The effects of MLS laser therapy are cumulative; therefore expect to see improvement as you proceed through your treatment plan.
