Keep in mind this chart is to illustrate focus on the Cost Per Watt and only takes a look at some of the most mainstream well known brands. What isn’t shown on this chart is Diowave which gets their lasers from the same manufacturer that Aspen Lasers does. The main difference if we put Diowave on the chart would be an increase of $200-400 for the Cost Per Watt column depending on the model. Diowave also uses the control panel and features that go with that from 2012 vs Aspen 2015. Also Diowave still uses the traditional handpiece while Aspen has the manufacturer’s latest ergonomically designed hand pieces.

  1. Maximum power output per wavelength is one of the most important factors in favorable treatment outcome


  1. With a dual wavelength laser, laser beam penetration is reduced by 50%, or ½ the stated power output of the laser


  1. With a 50% duty cycle setting and dual wavelengths, laser penetration is equal ¼ of the stated power output of the laser


  1. With multiple-wavelength lasers, laser beam penetration is significantly reduced. If a 50% duty cycle setting is paired with a three-wavelength laser, beam penetration is equal to 1/6 of the stated laser power output


  1. The higher the Joules/Watt ratio, the faster the infusion of laser energy in the treatment area, and the shorter the duration of required treatment (important for maximizing ROI)


  1. The Aspen Pinnacle series of lasers has the strongest maximum power/wavelength of any therapy laser listed above
