What is Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to treat painful musculoskeletal conditions, eliminate toenail fungus, eliminate or decrease appearance of spider veins, and remove unwanted hair. Most people experience positive results in 1 to 3 treatments; however, number of treatments required can vary. It is critical that once you start, you complete the course of treatments as recommended or symptoms are likely to reoccur. A free consultation with the laser technician can help determine the appropriate number of treatments needed.

Both our Cutera laser therapy and MLS laser therapy have been cleared by the FDA and proven successful as evidenced by extensive and credible studies conducted in some of our country’s finest institutions.

Cutera Laser

The Cutera laser can eliminate unsightly veins without burning the skin. It passes through the skin cauterizing the small vessels making them disappear.

 

The Cutera laser also kills toenail fungus without harming the tissues it passes through. This is performed without anesthesia and involves little to no pain.

 

It can also be used for laser hair removal. It works by a very specific wavelength of light utilized in a highly focused manner. It monitors and prevents overheating and harm to the patient.

 

Call either of Dr. O'Brien's offices in Kingman or Lake Havasu City to schedule a consultation about laser treatment options.

MLS Laser

The MLS laser effectively treats pain associated with plantar fasciitis, neuromas, neuropathies, arthritis, sports injuries, tendon and ligament injuries, joint pain, muscle sprains and strains, tendonitis, wounds, pre and post-surgical treatment, sore muscles, and much more.

 

Most sessions are less than ten minutes. The MLS laser works by accelerating tissue repair and cell growth, increasing metabolic activity, improving vascular activity, stimulating trigger points, reducing fibrous formation, improving nerve function, etc.

 

There is no pain, heat, redness, swelling, or other negative side effects associated with the treatment.

“For years I have been fighting continued pain related to plantar fasciitis and over the past year and a half I have had continued pain following a tendon repair...I have tried injections, braces, sports wraps, physical therapy and medications with minimal to no relief.

 

I had my first MLS laser treatment on this Monday after which I had noticeable reduction in pain symptoms. Wednesday I had my second treatment.

 

Today, I worked my first 12.5 hours shift since beginning treatment...Thank you Kevin J O'Brien, D.P.M. for suggesting this treatment...”
