Blue Light for wound healing
The study of the effects of Blue LED Light in the treatment of skin lesions is carried out by Emoled in collaboration with some of the most important Italian research institutes in the field of photonics and clinical research. The range of pathologies studied is wide: chronic wounds (venous, pressure and inflammatory ulcers), diabetic foot, burns and dermatological disorders such as atopic dermatitis. Thanks to this activity, it has been found that Blue Light is able to stimulate the physiological healing process of a wound which, due to a pathology, infection or metabolic deficiencies, may have stopped in the inflammatory phase, becoming chronic.
The energy of light is absorbed by enzymes of the electron transport chain and by flavoproteins present in the tissue cells, directly, without the use of mediators (chemical additives or drugs) and it is used by the skin tissue to promote chemical reactions or produce conformational changes in some biomolecules: cell activity is thus increased or reduced - “modulated” - where this is pathologically altered.
It is Photobiomodulation with Blue Light: this is how this promising photonic therapy has been defined in the scientific literature for its potential in inducing the healing of chronic wounds that represent a serious medical problem worldwide, destined to grow due to the increasing spread of diabetes and an aging population.
