BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Studies have demonstrated a bactericidal effect of laser irradiation when lasers with power outputs of (6 mW are directed toward pathogenic or opportunistic bacteria previously treated with a photosensitizing agent. The purpose of this study was to determine the bactericidal capabilities of irradiation from lasers with power outputs of less than 6 mW on photosensitized microorganisms. METHODS Two bacteria that commonly infect skin lesions, Staphylococcus aureus and… CONTINUE READING
