Scars, including hypertrophic and keloidal-type scars, may occur after burns, trauma, or surgery. At the present time there are no noninvasive modalities to treat these painful, sometimes disfiguring conditions.
A study done at the University of California Davis Dept. of Dermatology found that LLLT can effectively inhibit scar formation. The physicians commented that they felt the LLLT could be a helpful modality for the prevention of scarring. In my work with surgeons I have spoken to a number of them who have commented on how LLLT can produce dramatically less scarring after surgeryDermatol Surg. 2013 Mar;39(3 Pt 1):422-5.
