Healing Technique

Recently, an article was published discussing a novel healing technique called Optoceutics. In this technique, light is used to promote the healing process. Light has been studied in-depth in numerous capacities. It has made an appearance in the fields of biology, chemistry, and physics. Light has also made an appearance in medicine in the form of lasers. Lasers have been used to correct vision, remove scar tissue, and promote healing. Now, light is seeing a new application in the field of medicine.

Optoceutics has tremendous potential to help people who are struggling with a variety of issues. A research group recently published a medical study exploring the potential of Optoceutics, which is the application of light in the field of regenerative medicine.

What is Regenerative Medicine?

Science has been pushing the bounds of medicine over the past few decades. Now, medicine is more specialized than ever before, with new frontiers opening up in different directions. One of these is the field of regenerative medicine.

This field is a medical specialty that focuses on repairing, replacing, and restoring cells. If done properly, this field can even grow entire new tissues and organs. In this sense, bodily functions that have been damaged by injuries, aging, dangerous diseases, and even genetic defects can be repaired and restored. If the body can restore native tissue, this represents a superior healing process when compared to scar tissue.

Some of the examples of regenerative medicine at work in gene therapy are biomedical engineering. Doctors who specialize in regenerative medicine often offer services such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell therapy. Optoceutics represents a new branch of this field.

An Overview of Optoceutics

There have been multiple scientists developing Optoceutics during the past few years. They have been working on a completely new technique that might push the boundaries of tissue engineering. In this technique, light is used as a stimulus to help tissues grow and develop. Light is a safer and more effective tool when compared to electrodes, which have been the backbone of tissue engineering.

Light is easier to control and direct. Using light, specific populations of cells can be targeted during this treatment process. The research team has shown that it is possible to use this new method with the growth of endothelial tissue. The scientists have used optoceutics with endothelial tissue to grow new blood vessels. This is called angiogenesis. Using short pulses of visible light, completely new blood vessels were grown. This application of optoceutics can be effective for people who have suffered cardiovascular issues due to injuries or diseases.

Future Directions in the Field

This is already an exciting development for those who are looking into new treatment options for injuries and illnesses. The next step in the research study will be to use this light stimulus on other groups of cells in addition to blood vessels. If light can be used to control the fate of cells and grow new tissues, the potential of this treatment might be limitless. Light is minimally invasive and represents a treatment option that might have relatively few side effects. It will be exciting to watch this treatment continue to develop.
