Paper Abstract

Our work addresses laser tissue interaction for skin exposures from 1318 nm laser pulses. Single pulse data from 0.5 milli-second exposures, along with the mechanisms of photon energy absorption in tissue are investigated. We offer preliminary ED50 data and its implication within the realm of laser tissue interaction for discussion. A comparison will be made between the skin reaction of the Yucatan mini-pig (highly pigmented model) and Yorkshire pig (lightly pigmented model). This study represents the first systematic histological investigation of skin reaction to 1318 nm laser pulses.
