People keep asking, "What makes the Scalar Wave Laser (SWL) better than a less expensive laser?"

All cold lasers or healing lasers are not created equal. Not even close. There are so many different variables to consider that the novice doesn't even stand a chance at understanding and analyzing all of the parameters. The more you look into it and try to understand, the more complicated it can become. However, as a laser specialist for 15 years I have done a complete analysis on over 50 different therapeutic lasers, written dozens of articles, written several books on cold laser therapy and protocols, sold over 30 different models of cold lasers, 2 brands of hot lasers and tested over 100 different light therapy devices. I will now provide you with some insights to help you gain a better understanding of this constantly changing field.

Here are some of the factors that people try to evaluate that make comparing lasers difficult:

  • CLEARANCE: FDA Approved (meaning can be sold in the US, often for animal use lasers) vs FDA Cleared for human use (meaning cleared for specific applications on humans) vs OTC Cleared (meaning can be purchased over the counter without a license or prescription vs for practitioner purchase only)
  • LASER POWER: Power is measured in Milliwatts (mW) or Watts. From 5mW-500mW is considered cold laser, which is safe for use without over-heating or burning tissue.
  • WAVELENGTH: The length and color of the wave is measured in nanometers (nm), has to do with the types of tissues and conditions being treated and depth of penetration
  • DIODE TYPE: Laser diode vs light emitting diode (LED & SLD), Photodiode and others.
  • DEPTH OF PENETRATION: Having to do with a combination of power, pulsing variables such as continuous wave, standard pulse, super pulse. The InfraRed (IR) wavelengths are ideal for deep pain, deliver the deepest penetration and are ideal for hard tissues, bones, tendons, ligaments and dense muscles. While Red lasers are better for surface tissues, nerves, wrinkles, wounds, burns, shallow pain, smaller joints and inflammation.
  • WAVE TYPES: square wave, sine wave and scalar waves (SWL uses all three types)
  • CLASS OF LASER: Class 1, 2, 3a, 3b, and 4 (Hint: Class simply refers to safety, most specifically eye safety and has nothing to do with effectiveness of the laser), low level laser, soft laser, biostimulating laser, healing laser and therapeutic laser. SWL has the highest safety of all therapeutic lasers on the market and wearing protective eye goggles or glasses is not required.
  • MORE CONFUSING TERMINOLOGY: Resonating laser, Stimulating laser, Biostimulating laser, hot laser vs cold laser (Hint: Cold lasers are super safe and will never heat or burn tissue).

Now that you have a better understanding of the variables that can be considered, let's ask some additional questions:

  • Is the laser made in China or made in the US or Germany or Australia?
    Hint: Scalar Wave Lasers are Made in the US and serviceable at the factory in Vermont.
  • Does the laser use red lasers, infrared lasers, violet lasers or LED's?
    Hint: Scalar Wave Laser use all of them.
  • What is the anticipated life of the laser and is it serviceable? Different lasers will have different life expectancy.
    Hint: The SWL is made with diodes rated for 10,000 hours of use. The SWL has a 10 year life expectancy, depending upon use and is also serviceable in VT for a $100 fee once warranty has expired.
  • What's better, Lasers or LED's? Lasers are more effective and offer superior penetration than LED's and they are also more expensive than LED's.
    Hint: Some of the best lasers also combine with LED's to cover more surface area or add additional benefits to the laser, which is what the SWL does.
  • Should I buy a Red Laser or an InfraRed (IR) Laser? Most lasers on the market offer either red laser or infrared laser and some offer both wavelengths and still others offer multiple wavelengths along with multiple technologies. The InfraRed (IR) wavelengths are ideal for deep pain, deliver the deepest penetration and are ideal for hard tissues, bones, tendons, ligaments and dense muscles. Red lasers are better for surface tissues, nerves, shallow pain, wrinkles, acne, wound and burn care and inflammation.
    Hint: Lasers that combine multiple technologies and multiple wavelengths produce superior results.
  • Is the laser easy to use? This has to do with the user interface, the size, shape and design of the laser.
    Hint: The SWL has a super easy to use touch pad interface and LCD screen, which makes it quick and easy to select and use different settings. The shape is the best on the market because it can lie flat against the skin, meaning you don't have to constantly hold the device and it can be tucked in under clothing, lie on top of body or under it in bed. The laser is light weight, sturdy, portable, cordless, rechargeable and even programmable if desired.

What are some of the features that make the Scalar Wave Laser a SUPERIOR Cold Laser?

The SWL is Made in the US, is an ISO 1835 approved medical device and has the best FDA Clearance for Arthritis, Pain Relief, Reduction of Inflammation, Relaxing Contracted Tissue and Increasing Blood Circulation. Most lasers are only cleared for one or two things. There are a variety of special clearances, that had to be obtained by the manufacturer to approve this laser device for human use, which are very expensive. A professional quality laser requires significant testing and clinical studies. The SWL has been extensively reviewed and approved by the FDA, TGA, CE and Health Canada, allowing it to be sold and used on humans and animals worldwide.
The SWL is a specialized piece of equipment that combines some of the greatest advances in light and energy medicine technology into a compact, portable, handheld device. It utilizes true lasers and photodiodes, which are expensive, it combines red lasers, infrared lasers and super violet narrow beam LED's, advanced Hz frequency technology, sine waves, square waves, and patented scalar wave technology.
While most lasers only have 1, 2, 4 or 8 true laser diodes, the SWL has 16 true laser diodes in the main unit, and the diodes in the probes are much more powerful diodes that cost even more money.

With the SWL you will receive restorative, healing energies through:

  • 3 different therapeutic wavelengths
  • A large 2.5" diameter cluster head of 36 diodes
  • 16 true lasers - 8 Red Lasers and 8 InfraRed Lasers
  • Plus, 3 different optional laser probes, which deliver more concentrated power for significantly greater healing capacity. Each laser probe delivers more powerful and concentrated healing energy in specific wavelengths, into an area between 1/4-1/2". Each probe is enhanced with 4 super violet LED's to help support additional healing benefits.

By utilizing both resonating and stimulating lasers with more wavelengths and technologies, SWL allows for a larger range of treatment possibilities for healing and relief from common ailments.

SWL is extremely easy to use and the shape and portable design are exceptional. It has more diodes, more power (more than many lasers and less than some, but enough to get the job done), far more capabilities and flexible user options, more probe choices, exceptional violet laser technology, deep penetrating Infrared Laser, scalar technology, digital technology with easy to use and comprehend user interface, and it produces great results for a wide range of conditions.

SWL has taken quantum physics and medical science to a new level by combining precisely chosen multiple wavelengths of coherent light and subtle frequency energy technology. We are now blessed with a healing tool that supports unparalleled healing potential. This fabulous Quantum Laser is approved by the FDA for purchase over the counter and is FDA, Health Canada and CE (Europe) Cleared. It uses blended laser light and frequency technology, combining select healing wavelengths and advanced modes for shifting dis-ease and promoting transformation and healing on a cellular level. SWL is spreading healing light across the world one person at a time.

While some facets of the SWL such as the Scalar Technology are difficult for many people to understand, it's important to know that this laser even without that technology is far better than most other lasers, and with it, it produces outstanding results that are nothing short of remarkable. You see, when it comes right down to it, all lasers are primarily measured on the merits of their true laser capabilities and how many true laser diodes they are working with. You will be happy to learn that the SWL main unit comes with a total of 16 true laser diodes, which are all working simultaneously in the two most studied and desirable laser spectrums, red and infrared. While many lasers only have 1-4 laser diodes, the SWL has 8 Red Laser Diodes and 8 Infrared (IR) laser diodes, plus 20 narrow beam Violet LEDs. The aperture or head of the laser covers 2.5" of surface area, compared to many lasers that only cover 1/4" to 1" surface area.
