The term “laser therapy” refers to the use of light to engage, promote, and accelerate the body’s natural healing process. When the concentrated light from laser beams moves over the skin, it absorbs into the tissue where it can engage with cells to promote a healing effect. At Newport Foot and Ankle Center, Dr. Haupt is proud to offer patients a variety of laser treatment options to promote healing from a wide range of foot and ankle concerns.
PinPointe™ FootLaser®: Nail fungus is a sometimes embarrassing and often painful reality for millions of people, worldwide. Historically, nail fungus was challenging to treat because the infection is happening underneath the nail – making it hard for any topical products to address the problem. But with the PinPointe FootLaser, Dr. Haupt and his expert team can offer this virtually pain-free 30-minute laser procedure with minimal side effects and a high rate of effectiveness. The process involves laser light that transfers through the toenail to the tissue underneath, without causing any damage to the nail itself or the tissue surrounding it. For most people, one treatment is all it takes to kill the fungus.
MLS Laser: Short for Multiwave Locked System, MLS laser therapy is designed to help address pain, inflammation, and swelling that are characteristic in a variety of conditions, including those that affect the feet and ankles. The MLS technology allows the laser beam to deliver therapeutic wavelengths that promote healing while staying concentrated on the area that needs attention. MLS Laser therapy is a promising treatment option for people with plantar fasciitis, neuropathy, arthritis, sports injuries, tendon and ligament damage, diabetic foot wounds and muscle strains and sprains.
