Can this laser harm me?
With responsible use (i.e., not pointing the beam directly into the eye), the level of light energy emitted from the LZ30 family of lasers is not sufficient to damage human cells. Normally functioning cells do not respond to the laser light of your LZ30 Laser. This is a general rule but there may be exceptions. Common Sense is important in laser therapy. If a treatment creates undue discomfort from heat or light sensitivity, lower the treatment time, move the laser to a different location on the body or cease the treatment altogether.
When should I use the laser in Infrared mode?
When should I use the laser in Red mode?
Red (R) mode is used for a rehabilitative tissue response. The cells in our bodies have been shown to communicate in the red light wavelength, which is one of the wavelengths the LZ30 operates at. In this mode, the laser is used to “normalize” cellular function. If the target tissue is not functioning normally (i.e., tight muscles), the application of the laser in Red mode will help to normalize the target tissue.
How do I switch between Red and Infrared modes?
When turning the beam on, the laser will always start in Red mode unless the desired preset is only available in Infrared mode. With the beam on, click once in the Up direction to toggle from Red to Infrared. The display will show the “R” icon has switched to “IR”. The laser is now in Infrared mode. To change back to Red mode, click once in the Down direction. The display will change from “IR” to “R”.
Do I have to hold the laser in one spot or can I wave it over the entire area?
Another advantage is that you will experience less muscle fatigue from supporting the laser with your arm instead of resting it on the body part to be treated.
How long should I laser an area?
How often should I treat the same person using my laser?
What are the contraindications for laser therapy?
Other considerations include treating directly over a fetus, the thyroid or reproductive organs. No evidence has been found in published research to demonstrate a risk of adverse effects, but prudence should be observed when treating near these areas.
Laser treatment over tattoos is also contraindicated, as the laser light can damage the surrounding tissue due to heal build-up in the tattoo ink pigments.
How do I pin a preset to my Favorites menu?
When should I charge my laser?
What are the plastic covers that were included with my laser?
How do I learn more about laser therapy?
What can I do to make the laser treatment more effective?
To assist in the effectiveness of a laser treatment with the LZ30, it is recommended to be adequately hydrated (rule of thumb is ½ your body weight, in ounces, per day). Proper balance of electrolytes (mainly potassium & magnesium) and low stress also may help your body utilize the laser light energy.
