At one time it was thought that laser therapy was ineffective when used with cortisone. Newer studies are showing that laser therapy actually may have a synergistic effect with cortisone. This animal study aimed to assess the effect of laser therapy associated with and without dexamethasone on inflammation and wound healing in surgical wounds.
The results showed that laser therapy and dexamethasone acted in a similar pattern to reduce acute inflammation! Collagen synthesis and tissue healing were more intense in the laser group and laser therapy was effective in reducing swelling and accelerated repair, even in the presence of dexamethasone.
