Scar Tissue

Scar tissue is fibrous tissue that forms when normal tissue is destroyed by disease, injury, or surgery. When the pain subsides and a wound heals after a cut, sore, burn, or another skin condition, or after an incision is made into the skin during surgery, scar tissue forms. It can also form inside the body when certain conditions, such as cirrhosis, cause normal tissue to become fibrous tissue. Side effects of scar tissue can include limited movement, itchiness, pain, and unpleasant appearance. 

Seventeen volunteers with scar tissue underwent a 5-week trial that involved LLLT treatment. This resulted in a positive effect on the macroscopic scars’ appearance, and on old scars’ thickness. Since LLLT can stimulate parts of the brain to produce natural pain relievers, it improves overall blood flow in the body and releases more oxygen to damaged tissues. LLLT helps nerves to regenerate, thereby softening already formed scar tissue.
