Can red light therapy be used for wound healing?

Yes, red light therapy has been extensively studied and utilized for its ability to accelerate wound healing across various types of wounds, including acute injuries, surgical incisions, and chronic ulcers. The therapeutic effects of red light therapy on wound healing are multifaceted, involving stimulation of cellular proliferation, promotion of angiogenesis (new blood vessel formation), modulation of inflammatory responses, and enhancement of collagen synthesis. By increasing cellular energy production and optimizing tissue repair processes, red light therapy facilitates faster wound closure, reduced scar formation, and improved functional outcomes. Clinical evidence supports the use of red light therapy as an adjunctive treatment modality in wound care protocols, particularly in cases where traditional approaches may be inadequate or contraindicated.
