60 Watts Class IV Therapeutic Laser
The higher-powered laser will be able to deliver therapeutic doses
to deeper targets in a shorter amount of time.
1 Watt laser: 40 seconds to deliver 10 Joules of energy to a 4cm
4 Watt laser: 10 seconds to deliver 10 Joules of energy to a 4cm
How many Dimedlaser treatment sessions are necessary?
The measurable effects of Dimed laser therapy are cumulative in
nature, and usually require multiple treatments. Many times the
patient will experience relief immediately after the first
treatment. The number of sessions will depend on the exact
diagnosis, age and overall health status of the patient. In
general, acute conditions can be treated more frequently and
require fewer visits, typically 4-6. Chronic conditions may require
6, 8 or 10 more visits.
How long has laser therapy been utilized in pain management?
The laser was invented in 1960 and the biostimulative properties of
laser light were first discovered in 1967. Therapy lasers have been
used in Europe much longer than in the United States. The United
States Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) first cleared therapy
lasers in 2002, and Class IV lasers in 2003.
What is the power of most laser therapy devices on the market?
Laser therapy devices being used in today range in power output
from 5 milliwatts to 15,000 milliwatts. Class 3a lasers are 5
milliwatts, Class 3b range from 5 to 500 milliwatts, and a Class 4
laser is any greater than 500 milliwatts (or half a Watt).
The Dimed Class 4 therapy laser has power adjustable from 0.1 to 15
Watts in the Berylas 15F/J model, and 0.1 to 30 Watts in the
Cherylas30F/J model, and 0.1 to 60 Watts in Cherylas 60F/J model,
continuous wave or pulsed model is optional.
The adjustable power allows for a wide range of treatment
protocols. Class 4 laser therapy delivers a therapeutic dosage to a
large volume of tissue in a shorter period of time.
Is Class 4 Laser Therapy safe without side effects?
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has been in use for over thirty
years around the world. There have been almost no side effects
reported. Occasionally some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel
aggravated for a few days, as the healing response becomes more
active after a treatment.
What advantage does Class IV Laser Therapy have over other forms of
Class IV Laser Therapy does not require the use of drugs or
surgery, and there are no dangerous side effects or risks. In
addition, Class IV Laser Therapy provides enhanced treatment
outcomes faster than any other treatment modality.
What type of warranty comes with the Dimedlaser?
The Peralas, Cherylas and Endilas are backed by a full two- year
manufacturer’s warranty and the laser moduel are warranted for
three year. Additional warranties are available at a very
