The light cone gauge is used frequently in string theory as well as gauge theories and gravitation. Loop integrals however have to be infrared regulated to remove spurious poles. The most popular and consistent of these infrared regulators is the Mandelstam-Leibbrandt(ML) prescription. The calculations with ML are rather cumbersome, though. In this work we show that the ML can be replaced by a symmetry of the regulator. This symmetry simplify the calculations, reducing them to conventional dimensional regularization integrals.
