Paper Abstract

The optical property of dermal cuticle was investigated for the purpose of in-vivo photo therapy with low power laser. Both of the laser spectra and fluorescence spectra demonstrated that light absorption mainly result from the keratin and melanin. Transmission of dermal cuticle was 15% in the wavelength range of 590 - 792 nm. It was possible for in- vivo phototherapy by using of low power laser.
