Raman Scattering Spectra Characterize the Influence of LED Irradiation on Human Skin Fibroblasts
Abstract— LED phototherapy has been widely applied in clinical practice for treating the skin-related
diseases such as acne, pimples, burn and etc.. However, the underlying mechanism for the therapeutic effects
involved in bioprocess was still unclear. Although quite a few researches proposed various potential
hypotheses through strict experiments, the methods they performed with like morphological observation and
immunohistochemistry seemed subjective and cumbersome operations. Raman scattering, a technique to
parse molecular information by providing fingerprint spectra at the molecular level, could be a better
alternative method for its high efficient and usability. Therefore, we tried to study the influences of LED light
irradiation on human skin fibroblasts by comparing the Raman spectra from the cells under irradiation with
three lights at different wavelengths: red (λ=625±5 nm), yellow (λ=590±5 nm) and blue (λ=465±5 nm).
Results indicated red and yellow light at 625 nm and 590 nm might promote the anabolism including the
synthesis of bio-macromolecules such as proteins and DNAs, while blue light at 465 nm might tend to make
the macromolecules catabolized into small molecules. Raman scattering could be applied as a high efficient
technique for cell researches.
