Abstract. The analysis of the publications devoted to the research of the mechanisms of the therapeutic effect of one of the most known low level laser therapy techniques –laser blood illumination, as well as the analysis of its long application experience allow us to speak with confidence about the prospects of this trend. Moreover, both methods: intravenous laser blood illumination (ILBI) and non-invasive laser blood illumination (NLBI) are developing independently, since each method has its own advantages and disadvantages. The replacement of UV blood illumination with UV lamps by laser ultraviolet blood illumination (LUVBI®) has significantly simplified the technique and increased its efficiency. The most efficient options for ILBI are combined techniques: ILBI-635 + LUVBI® and ILBI-525 + LUVBI®. The most efficient technique for NLBI is the use of low-intensity pulsed laser light with a wavelength of 635 nm and power of up to 40 W.
Key words: low level laser therapy, intravenous laser blood illumination (ILBI), non-invasive laser blood illumination (NLBI), laser ultraviolet blood illumination (LUVBI®)
