Paper Abstract

We present experimental study of penetration of magnetic particles into the human skin in vitro. The administration of the particles through he skin into the body leads to localization and retention of the particles at the desired site. This technology can be used for selective damage of tumor cells by hyperthermia or to remove unwanted or excess hair. The maximal depth of particle penetration into the skin achieved in this paper was 0.7mm.
