Exposed healing

Life Science

Light is at the heart of our daily rhythms and brightens our lives.

Its healing properties are the subject of a new study conducted at Buffalo University, which could stand to benefit 6 million people. Its findings?

That burn injuries heal better when treated with light therapy. Over a period of nine days, third degree burns were carefully exposed to a laser diode.

The treatment activates a specific protein (TGF-beta 1) responsible for cell growth and division. Above all, it stimulates connective tissue and immune cells, leading to tissue repair and a speedier recovery.

Did we mention it also alleviates pain? A burn healing protocol for using the laser has been developed to prevent thermal injuries.
