Paper Abstract

This study was undertaken to investigate the influence of low level s- and p-polarized visible He-Ne laser irradiation on healing of skin wounds. Three lesions about 6 mm in diameter were induced on back of rates with liquid nitrogen: one was irradiated by He-Ne s-polarized radiation, other by He-Ne p-polarized and the third lesion was not irradiated. Two rats were killed after each irradiation to get sections of tissue for morphological analysis. The wound illuminated by p-polarized He-Ne was completely healed after 17 days when compared to other lesions which showed a poor degree of healing.
