Multiwave Locked System (MLS) Laser therapy is a modern and effective treatment method that can aid in the management of scar tissue.

While scar tissue is a natural part of the healing process, it can sometimes become problematic, causing pain, discomfort, limited mobility, or aesthetic concerns.

MLS Laser therapy offers several benefits in addressing this – read on to find out more!

1: Reduction of Scar Tissue Formation 

MLS Laser therapy can be employed soon after an injury or surgical procedure to promote proper healing and minimize tissue formation. The laser’s light energy penetrates the skin and underlying tissues, stimulating cellular activity and accelerating the body’s natural healing process. This can help prevent excessive tissue formation and promote the regeneration of healthy tissues.

2: Softening and Smoothing of Scar Tissue with MLS Laser Therapy

Established tissue can be thick, dense, and inflexible. MLS Laser therapy has been found to improve the texture and appearance of the tissue by increasing collagen production, reducing fibrosis, and promoting tissue remodelling. The laser’s energy helps break down excessive collagen fibres and encourages the growth of new, more organized collagen, resulting in softer, smoother scar tissue.

3: Scar Tissue Pain Reduction 

Scar tissue can sometimes cause discomfort, pain, or sensitivity, especially when it forms around nerves or restricts joint movement.

MLS Laser therapy has analgesic properties and can help alleviate the associated pain. The laser’s energy reduces inflammation, increases blood flow, and stimulates the release of endorphins, providing pain relief and improving the overall comfort of the affected area.

4: Improved Flexibility and Functionality around Scar Tissue

Scar tissue can restrict the movement and flexibility of nearby muscles, tendons, or joints, affecting overall functionality.

MLS Laser therapy helps in breaking down the adhesions, promoting tissue remodelling, and enhancing tissue elasticity. This can lead to an increased range of motion, improved joint function, and enhanced overall mobility.

5: Minimized Hypertrophic or Keloid Scarring with MLS Laser Therapy

In cases where hypertrophic or keloid scars have formed, MLS Laser therapy can be beneficial. The laser’s energy helps modulate the excessive collagen production and reduce the size, redness, and thickness of hypertrophic or keloid scars. Regular laser treatments can gradually flatten and fade these types of scars, resulting in improved aesthetics.

It is important to note that the effectiveness of MLS Laser therapy for scar tissue can vary depending on factors such as the age and type of scar, the individual’s healing response, and the duration and frequency of laser treatments.

It is advisable to consult with a qualified healthcare professional, such as a dermatologist or podiatrist, who can assess the specific characteristics of your tissue and determine the most suitable treatment plan, which may include MLS Laser therapy along with other complementary approaches.
