Hello everbody,

since yesterday I am using the laser Messiah II with 200 diodes.
The advice is to use it 3 times a week for 20 minutes.
However, I have a few questions..

- What happens if you use it longer then 20 minutes? Since i only have 200 diodes ( in comparison to 300/400/440) shouldn't I use it longer? Or more often?

- Should you get a burning/tingling feeling? I do not feel seems like it's just red light shining on my scalp;)

- The bristles that are resting on my head are actually quite heavy. I can still seel small red spots after I took the helmet off...Is this ok? Is this not a negative effect?

Five years ago, but ill answer anyway because im bored!

Dont use the helmet more than 20 min. The amount of diodes is related to the surface area covered, not the amount of power delivered. The amount of power delivered will vary based on factors such as the output of the diode (in milliwatts), the spacing of the diodes, and the distance between the diode and the scalp. In short, dont exceed the twenty minute treatment time; it will make for a less effctive or ineffective treatment.

No, there is really no noticable sensation to laser therapy besides the heat of the lasers if anything.

The helmets are heavy, but that's ok. Not going to damage your scalp anywhere near as much as is the chronic metabolic disorder you are treating!
