The following four characteristics have great beneficial effects:
Polarization, polychromy, incoherency, low energy.

BIOPTRON® Hyperlight is a polarized light. This means that its waves move on parallel planes. In BIOPTRON® Hyperlight polarization reaches a degree of approximately 95%.

BIOPTRON® Hyperlight is a polychromatic light. This means that it contains not only one wavelength (like laser-light), but a wide range of wavelengths, including visible light and a part of the infrared range. BIOPTRON® Hyperlight does not contain UV rays!

As opposed to laser light, BIOPTRON® Hyperlight is an incoherent or out-of-phase light. This means, that light waves are not synchronized.
