OBJECTIVE This study aimed to describe, through morphologic and cytochemical analysis, the healing process of wounds submitted (or not) to laser therapy (lambda685 nm) or polarized light (lambda400-2000 nm). BACKGROUND DATA There are many reports on different effects of several types of phototherapies on the treatment of distinct conditions, amongst them, on wound healing. Laser therapy and the use of polarized light are still controversial despite successive reports on their positive effects… CONTINUE READING
