Since infrared light therapy is able to promote rejuvenation in cells, the area of the body this light therapy focuses on should see improvement in regards to wound healing. Although infrared light therapy has not been used for many years, it's already known this therapy increases the speed of wound healing and tissue repair, which should allow patients to recover in a shorter period than they initially expected. Infrared light therapy has been used for the treatment of a wide array of different wounds, ranging from cuts and scrapes to burns. A quickened wound healing process also helps reduce the possibility the wound becomes infected. It's also possible some slow-healing wounds can be properly treated with infrared light therapy, including diabetic foot ulcers. If patients have suffered from a minor injury that doesn't require additional surgery or more invasive treatment methods, they might want to consider infrared light therapy to help speed up the recovery process.
