Abstract
Human skin contains photolabile nitric oxide (NO) derivatives which decompose after UVA irradiation and release vasoactive NO. However, aside from blue light, barely nothing has been reported about the effects of red and NIR wavelengths. We decided to investigate if photobiomodulation, using visible to NIR light, would increase the release of NO in the skin. A custom-built airtight sleeve which envelopes the forearm of a subject was used to measure the NO emanating from the skin under photobiomodulation conditions and quantified by chemiluminescence detection. Distinct differences in measured NO levels were observed between the non-irradiated condition and PBM conditions.
