Photobiomodulation in promoting wound healing: a review

Written by Regenerative Medicine

Review of studies stimulating wound healing using light-emitting diodes or lasers at various wavelengths, aiming to identify the mechanisms of action and optimal methods, by Damien P Kuffler (University of Puerto Rico). Many different approaches to wound healing are under investigation, as there is currently no transformative treatment for conditions such as diabetic ulcers, cancerous wounds and irradiation-induced wounds. One of these approaches is photobiomodulation — where light-emitting diodes or lasers in specific wavelengths are used to induce wound healing. In a Regenerative Medicine Review, Damien P Kuffler from University of Puerto Rico examines studies that have been carried out...
