It also provides a non-addicting treatment that eliminates the complications of long-term drug treatment programs.
Cold lasers are FDA cleared and widely use for treatment of: Healing With Cold Lasers The cold laser produces an impulse of light at a specific wavelength (usually 600 to 980nm) that minimizes reflection and scattering but maximized absorption of the the energy (in photons) at a desired depth.
The most popular class 3b laser we sell is the Avant LZ30x.
Class 4 Continuous Lasers (Professional use only) Class 4 lasers have the highest ability to do damage to the eye as well as tissues if used improperly.
They are limited to a maximum of 500m W but they can not do eye damage unless the beam is focused.
Be very aware of buying anything that looks like a laser pointer because it is quite possibly an over priced laser pointer.Because of their lower cost, class 1 lasers are widely used in practitioner's offices and have a proven track record.Class 1 therapeutic lasers typically have much longer treatment times and protocol duration than higher power products. Class 1m laser are the best over-the-counter lasers.Some conditions like joint pain require a deep penetration (4-5 inches) that can only be achieved using a powerful laser emitter.Many systems also have other lower wavelengths and lower-power emitters for treating shallow tissue (like the lymphatic system or surface scars).In fact they are so safe they can be purchased for home use without any restrictions.
