“Treatment with laser therapy of cutaneous damage induced by radiotherapy in breast cancer: our institutional experience”
Energy for Health Volume 10
This clinical trial was designed to assess the effectiveness of Low Level Laser Therapy in reducing pain and inflammation and in stimulating skin healing of radiotherapy ulcerations after breast cancer. This study evaluated 100 patients, 47 were treated with laser and 53 were treated with lenitive creams. Visual analysis of skin using RTOG scale was used.
Analysis and review of this data shows a shorter time for the healing of cutaneous toxicity after LLLT compared to the treatment of just topical lenitive creams (mean average time of healing was 10 days vs 20 days). It was concluded that LLLT was effective in stimulating wound healing and pain reduction, and has a huge effect by decreasing healing time of skin toxicity.
