Paper Abstract

The work reports studies aimed at determining the pain and sensitivity thresholds of human skin surface induced by an intense radiation of IR laser. The pain and sensitivity thresholds of skin surface and their dependence on such characteristics of laser radiation as pulse duration, energy density, and laser spot diameter were obtained.
