BACKGROUND Red light is part of the visible light spectrum. The effects of light-emitting diode (LED)-generated red light on human skin are not well-characterized. OBJECTIVE To study the effect of red LED-generated low-level light therapy (LLLT) on fibroblast proliferation and viability in vitro. METHODS AND MATERIALS Irradiation of normal human skin fibroblasts using red LED panels was performed in vitro, and modulation of proliferation and viability was quantified using trypan blue dye… CONTINUE READING
