Abstract

LINS, Ruthinéia Diógenes Alves Uchôa et al. Biostimulation effects of low-power laser in the repair process. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2010, vol.85, n.6, pp. 849-855. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962010000600011.

The wound healing process has always been an excellent subject for researchers. The use of low-power laser on wounds during the postoperative phase has increased the speed of the healing process. It has been implied that low power radiation affects cellular metabolic processes and promotes beneficial biological effects (analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and healing). Laser biostimulation appears to influence the behavior of the repair process. This paper aims at reviewing the most interesting aspects of the use of low-power laser in the tissue-repair process.
