Paper Abstract

New technology for the definition of the skin epidermis optical parameters, which includes upper layers of epidermis stripping, diffuse reflection, transmission, and angular measurement of scattered light by stripping samples, calculations using 4-flux Kubelka-Munk approximation, have been obtained. This technology was successfully used for depth dependence monitoring of epidermis optical parameters, and for laser light dosimetry in percutaneous irradiation of blood and laser PUVA therapy.
