Laser and LED Lights - GHK-Cu Treatments
|Human Laser Treatments||GHK-Cu skin care products placed on CO(2) laser-resurfaced skin offered no significant reduction or resolution of posttreatment erythema or improvement in wrinkles. However, patient satisfaction was significantly higher for those who used GHK-Cu skin care products after CO(2) laser skin resurfacing.||

|Rabbit Laser Wounds||Healing parameters between treatments by laser or GHK-Cu in rabbits were compared. GHK-Cu filled the open wound with granualtion tissue faster than the laser. GHK-Cu and laser reduced time to wound closure about equally (29.8 days GHK-Cu, 30.2 days laser, 34.6 days control)||

|Effect of LED lights and GHK-Cu on fibroblasts||Cultured fibroblasts were treated with red LED lights and GHK-Cu. The combination had an additive action increasing cell viability 12.5 fold, beta-FGF 2.3 fold, and also collagen production.||
