    TLDR Low-Level Laser Therapy helps heal wounds and regenerate tissue when used correctly.
    Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has been demonstrated to be an effective non-invasive treatment that utilizes red and near-infrared light to stimulate healing and regeneration in tissues through photobiomodulation. It has analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and stimulatory effects, enhancing cellular metabolism, cell growth, fibroblast proliferation, collagen synthesis, and angiogenesis, while also reducing edema and inflammation. However, it has a biphasic dose response, with excessive dosages potentially being ineffective or harmful. LLLT is used for various types of wounds, including surgical wounds, ulcers, and burns, and has FDA approval for treating androgenic alopecia. It is also effective in skin rejuvenation, inflammatory skin conditions, pain management, and musculoskeletal disorders. The document emphasizes that LLLT can significantly aid in wound healing, tissue repair, and regeneration when applied with correct dosages.
