Q: How does it work?
A: Anovia’s technology is based on the “Cold Laser Theraphy”. Anovia is transmitting a laser pulse that is keeping the nerves “busy”. Busy nerves means that the nerve-gate is closed, therefore pain signals cannot pass through and are unfelt. Anovia device consists of lasers of both 650 nm and 808 nm wavelengths. Among them, the 650nm wavelength laser only acts on superficial tissues and has a good effect on infectious skin and other skin lesions. Laser radiation at 808 nm has a strong penetrating power for skin, fat and muscle tissue, penetrating subcutaneous tissue 5-7 cm. Through the bio-stimulating effect of semiconductor laser, it promotes cell regeneration, accelerates repair function, improves blood circulation, reduces inflammation and relieves pain, reduces edema, and regulates immune function. The overall effect of the complex wavelength not only acts on superficial tissue lesions, but also on deep tissue lesions, showing a therapeutic effect from shallow to deep

Q: How long should I leave on one painful area that is chronic, or should i move it every 2 or 3 minutes?
A:Basically, please let the device stay in a painful area for at least 10 minutes, first set 10 minutes later and then extend to 30 minutes, because if the time is too short, it will not be easy to feel the effect, and the intensity of the laser should be combined with your own needs. Later, you can slowly increase to the fourth gear strength.Basically, please let the device stay in a painful area for at least 10 minutes, first set 10 minutes later and then extend to 30 minutes, because if the time is too short, it will not be easy to feel the effect, and the intensity of the laser should be combined with your own needs.
