OBJECTIVES To evaluate the clinical efficacy and ultrastructural changes in photodamaged skin after combined 633-nm and 830-nm light-emitting diode (LED) treatments. [...] Key MethodMETHODS Thirty-six subjects received 9 LED treatments over the course of 5 weeks and were subsequently evaluated for final clinical improvement 12 weeks after treatment. Five subjects were also biopsied to determine the ultrastuctural posttreatment changes in collagen fibers. Expand

Adjunctive 830 nm light-emitting diode therapy can improve the results following aesthetic procedures.
It is shown that applying 830 nm LED-LLLT as soon as possible post-procedure, both invasive and noninvasive, successfully hastens the resolution of sequelae associated with patient downtime in addition to significantly speeding up frank wound healing. Expand
Is light-emitting diode phototherapy (LED-LLLT) really effective?
BACKGROUND Low level light therapy (LLLT) has attracted attention in many clinical fields with a new generation of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) which can irradiate large targets. To pain control, theExpand
Regulation of skin collagen metabolism in vitro using a pulsed 660 nm LED light source: clinical correlation with a single-blinded study.
LED therapy reversed collagen downregulation and MMP-1 upregulation and could explain the improvements in skin appearance observed in LED-treated individuals, suggesting that LED at 660 nm is a safe and effective collagen-enhancement strategy. Expand
Antiphotoaging Effects of Light‐Emitting Diode Irradiation on Narrow‐Band Ultraviolet B–Exposed Cultured Human Skin Cells
The combination of 630/850‐ or 660/830‐nm irradiation led to better direct and indirect antiphotoaging outcomes than single LED wavelengths in NB‐UVB‐irradiated cultured normal human skin cells. Expand
Light-emitting diodes at 830 and 850 nm inhibit melanin synthesis in vitro.
LED irradiation significantly reduced melanin production and tyrosinase expression not only in a normal human melanocyte monoculture both with and without forskolin stimulation but also in a three-dimensional multiple cell type culture, indicating that LEDs could potentially be used to treat melanin-overproducing skin conditions. Expand
A controlled trial to determine the efficacy of red and near-infrared light treatment in patient satisfaction, reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, skin roughness, and intradermal collagen density increase.
Broadband polychromatic PBM showed no advantage over the red-light-only spectrum, however, both novel light sources that have not been previously used for PBM have demonstrated efficacy and safety for skin rejuvenation and intradermal collagen increase when compared with controls. Expand
Light emitting diodes technology-based photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT) for dermatology and aesthetics: Recent applications, challenges, and perspectives
A critical review of the various applications of LED therapy in the fields of dermatology and beauty: skin rejuvenation, acne treatment, scarring prevention, hair restoration, fat reduction and cellulite treatment, and tooth whitening is provided. Expand
LED Low-Level Light Photomodulation for Reversal of Photoaging
Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the LED low-level light photomodulation for reversal of photoaging. LED arrays using LILT for photomodulation are useful for collagen stimulation, texturalExpand
Effects of LED radiation on the skin – what is new in recent research? Part II. In skin remodeling processes and hair growth
Experiments with mice have shown the effectiveness of green waves (518 nm) in wound healing and the impact of red waves (638 nm) is also interesting – they accelerate the rate of hair regrowth. Expand
Continuous irradiation with a 633-nm light-emitting diode exerts an anti-aging effect on human skin cells.
Insight is provided into the anti-aging effects of continuous LED irradiation on human skin by demonstrating that continuous irradiation with a 633±3-nm LED exerted anti- aging effects in both in vitro and ex vivo experiments. Expand


Clinical experience with light-emitting diode (LED) photomodulation.
The anti-inflammatory component of LED in combination with the cell regulatory component helps improve the outcome of other thermal-based rejuvenation treatments and reverses signs of photoaging using a new nonthermal mechanism. Expand
Combined Nonablative Skin Rejuvenation with the 595‐ and 1450‐nm Lasers
Wavelengths of 595 plus 1450 nm for skin rejuvenation produced good results with much higher patient satisfaction than those obtained with the 595- or 1450-nm wavelengths alone. Expand
Combination 532-nm and 1064-nm lasers for noninvasive skin rejuvenation and toning.
Results from combination treatment with both KTP and Nd:YAG lasers were slightly superior to those achieved with either laser alone, and to establish efficacy and degree of success. Expand

Efficacy of 0.1% tazarotene cream for the treatment of photodamage: a 12-month multicenter, randomized trial.
Once-daily applications of 0.1% tazarotene cream significantly reduced multiple signs of photodamage and resulted in a significantly greater incidence of patients achieving treatment success and at least a 1-grade improvement in fine wrinkling, mottled hyperpigmentation, lentigines, elastosis, pore size, irregular depIGmentation, tactile roughness, coarse wrinklesling, and the overall integrated assessment of photODamage.

Drug Treatment of Photoaged Skin
The current interest in pharmaceutical modulation of the photoaging process has attracted considerable research into the mechanisms of photoaging and cutaneous aging, and it is likely that treatment for, or prevention of, the chronological aging process may result from such research. Expand
