Laser treatment in wound healing:
Several recent publications show the first positive experiences in laser applications in the healing path of chronic wounds.
The concept is this: the laser is able to stimulate the production of collagen, an indispensable protein for tissue regeneration. This principle has been well-known for some years, and this is why laser is used in daily practice for a variety of aesthetic skin treatments such as wrinkles smoothing, exuberant scars treatment and photorejuvenation.
In addition, laser therapy can determine vasodilatation of the capillary bed by local heat production. All this improves microcirculation.
