- High power laser can significantly accelerate the regeneration processes, and therefore the treatment time is shorter.
- High power laser penetrates much deeper into the tissues thanks to an additional modification of the impulse mode (superpulse).
- High power laser uses two wavelengths during the treatment, which allows to obtain deep tissue biostimulation effects as well as to achieve thermal effect.
