TOP 10 QUESTIONS WE HEAR FROM PATIENTS
Does it cause irritation or the need for bandages?
MLS Laser is non-invasive, meaning that there is no break in the skin or damage to the skin. In fact, when using the robotic arm, the MLS Laser stays approximately 8 inches away from the skin.
Will it hurt?
MLS Laser is painless. There is no heat generated and most patients feel nothing at all during the treatment. Occasionally, a slight sensation is noticed, but we have never had a patient mention pain during or after a treatment.
Is the procedure safe?
MLS Laser Therapy has been on the market since 2009, and to this day, there are no known side effects. MLS Laser Therapy is safe.
Will I need to rest or take time off of work after a treatment?
MLS Laser Therapy requires no rest after a treatment. In fact, you can schedule your appointments during your lunch break so that it doesn't take extra time out of your day!
Are there any medicines I have to take?
No medicines are needed! In fact, this is one of the best things about MLS Laser - It actually REDUCES the amount of medication you will need for your pain management and in some cases eliminates the need for pain medication altogether!
Am I suitable?
The first step to finding out if MLS Laser Therapy is right for you is to make an appointment with one of our Drs. They will evaluate your foot pain and create a custom treatment plan just for you. If MLS is a good match, we will set you up with your appointments right away.
How long does a treatment take?
Treatments typically take about 10 -30 minutes, depending on the condition being treated. In some cases a little more time is required, but you will know ahead of time exactly how much time to set aside for your treatments.
Who will perform my treatments?
We currently have 2 certified MLS Laser Technicians, Judy and Yeira who will perform your treatment each time you come to our clinic for a Laser Session.
Is MLS covered by Insurance?
MLS Laser therapy is not covered by insurance. However, our package pricing allows each session to cost about the same as a typical co-pay, making it an affordable option.
How much does it cost?
Because we create custom treatment plans based on the specifics of your pain, there is not a "one price fits all" quote. However, typical acute pain treatments cost $299 for 6 sessions and chronic pain treatments cost $499 for 12 sessions. Neuropathy patients require a different type of treatment plan. Please refer to the Neuropathy page for more specific information.
