8 March 2016 A new visual analog scale to measure distinctive well-being effects of LED photobiomodulation

LED photobiomodulation is known mostly for its restorative effects on skin and joints. While providing LED photobiomodulation aesthetic treatments of the face, not only the skin condition was improved, but a subjective well-being effect was observed, obvious both in photographs of the treated areas and in patient behaviour. This has been supported by studies showing the beneficial effects of transcranial lasers and LEDs on neurological and psychological conditions, providing great insight. LED therapy can now be used as a standalone procedure to regulate neuronal function. To measure such neurological outcomes in humans, we developed a visual analog scale questionnaire with the purpose of having a convenient tool for the assessment of quality of life following facial LED photobiomodulation.We also gauged patients' emotional state regarding overall aesthetic improvement.
