Class 3b Lasers
Without question, Avant LZ30 lasers offer the highest amount of power of any other Class 3b laser offering both 637 nm Red and 808 nm IR wavelengths. In order to be effective you need to get the maximum amount of penetration at 808nm.
With the Avant Class 3b lasers, you get more power, more flexibility, and a longer warranty for less than any competing lasers. The LZ30 lasers have up to 15 times the power of the ML830™ AND up to 200 times the power level of an Erchonia™laser system.
This means you can either shorten your treatment times by 15X (by targeting the same dosage) or give your patients the higher dosage that often makes the difference between success and failure.
With up to 1000mW of red laser power at 637nm, the LZ30-Z minimizes treatment time and maximizes results. Research has shown that peak therapeutic effectiveness for visible red light is in the range of 630nm-640nm. Only the LZ30 and the XLR8 have red laser wavelengths in this range Visible red light is in the range of 630nm-640nm. Only the LZ30 and the XLR8 have red laser wavelengths in this range.

IR Power - 808 nm
It’s essential to consider average power when comparing lasers because “super pulse” lasers produce peak power for as little as a billionth of a second. Their average power is approximately 1/1000 of their peak power. Average power is the power emitted over time and the basis of dose calculations. The LZ30-Z has 1400mW of power at 808nm for peak therapeutic effectiveness, reduced treatment time and maximum results. The PowerLaser1500 has the highest output power for 808 nm but it does not have any Red or 637 nm wavelength like the Avant Lasers have.

Avant lasers do not use inexpensive LEDs or cheap laser diodes. Cheaper LEDs do not offer the same level of power control that you get from using a InGaAlP diode. The LZ30z uses the highest quality laser diodes available and it is a self-calibrated device so that you can get the "optimum" amount of energy into a treatment area every time.
The top model the LZ30z also includes a large treatment area. Using advanced optics, the product allow users to treat area up to 1 square inch without moving the device. For practitioners, the larger treatment area means faster treatment times. For beginning users, the broad treatment area means that users are more likely to treat the "sweet spot" when treating a poorly defined problem area.
* In general, the Infra Red wavelength is better for deep therapy and the visible red (637 nm) is better for shallow therapy and often for treating the root causes of complex problems.
Size and weight are important considerations. It is not uncommon to use the laser with most treatments, so the associated occupational strain is a very real consideration. While portability might seem unnecessary for an office-bound practitioner, if you have multiple treatment rooms or a device that is shared, then one that requires an outlet can be an encumbrance.
A cable between a base unit and treatment head that drags across the patient can be a distraction, and an encumbrance to the therapist while moving around during treatment.

While some devices offer the ability to set power, pulse frequency and treatment duration, others allow fully customized presets that automate every possible element of a treatment. For illustration, the dose for treatment of arthritis in finger joints is well established, so ideally, a therapy device would automate the entire process, delivering the correct does to each side of the finger, prompting the user to move the treatment head to the next location. This is clearly and advantage to having to pull out a calculator to work out dose and then program a timer for each use.
The LZ30 has the longest warranty on the market and we don’t hide anything in the small print. The laser diodes and the internal battery are not excluded.

Although there are cheaper devices available, the power and features of the LZ30 rank it with devices costing considerably more and without the added power and advanced features that make LZ Lasers a leader in the industry.
