Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of light therapy on wound healing after laser treatment.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Wound Heal Device: Celluma POD Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This study sets out to evaluate the effect of a combination of near infrared (830 nm) red (633 nm) and blue (465nm) light-emitting diode (LED) therapy on wound healing after laser application.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 30 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: The Effect of Combined Red and Near Infrared Light-emitting Diode (LED) Therapy on Tissue Regeneration Post Laser Treatment
Actual Study Start Date : April 1, 2021
Estimated Primary Completion Date : March 2022
Estimated Study Completion Date : March 2022

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: LED treatment
LED treatment with Celluma POD device after laser test area
Device: Celluma POD
A blue and near infrared handheld LED device

No Intervention: Control
No treatment after laser test area

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Days to healing [ Time Frame: 56 days ]
    The primary endpoint of this study is time and days to complete healing of the treatment sites. Clinical grading shall be by blinded assessment.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pain level [ Time Frame: 56 days ]
    A secondary outcome measure will be post-treatment pain on a 11-point Lickert scale from 0-10. Higher scores mean a worse outcome.
