The” color of light ” determines the rate of recovery of the biotissue

The spectrum of the light wave has a significant impact on the efficiency of biological tissue regeneration, a study by Russian scientists has shown, the results of which are published in the January issue of the Journal of photochemistry and Photobiology.

If the wavelength differs from these ranges, then this light radiation does not have any biological effect,” – senior researcher at ITEB RAS Artem Ermakov – “And the period of exposure (i.e., in which phase of the regeneration process it occurs) and the duration of light irradiation also plays a large role in the development of the biological effect.”
