Paper Abstract

Two ways of improving the skin permeability to clearing agents has been suggested and tested: i. Removal of upper layers of epidermis by glue stripping, ii. Electrophoretic administration of clearing agent into intact skin. Alterations in light scattering by skin under continuous contact with the agent were monitored by the measurement of diffuse reflectance of tissue at 830nm.
