BACKGROUND Infrared irradiation stimulates collagen production, but histological differences in its long-term effects on type I versus type III collagen and elastin in human tissue are unclear. OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of infrared irradiation. METHODS AND MATERIALS In vivo human tissues in sun-protected and sun-exposed areas were irradiated with infrared. Histological samples were analyzed, and visual changes were assessed up to 90 days post-treatment. RESULTS Infrared… CONTINUE READING
