Many LLLT practitioners ask about treating skin diseases with laser. Here is an interesting study that confirms previous studies showing anecdotal evidence that patients with Oral Lichen Planus may benefit from LLLT.

To date, the most commonly used and useful agents for the treatment of Oral Lichen Planus (OLP) are topical corticosteroids. The investigators studied a prospective cohort
of 13 patients affected by OLP, who received biostimulation.

This study suggests that LLLT could be a possible treatment for patients with unresponsive OLP. These results are a step forward for enhanced management of this quite common condition; however, it would be interesting to see if the results would be the same with a greater number of patients or in a different clinical setting.
