Paper Abstract

Erythema and pigmentation are the most important visible phenomenons in the ultraviolet irradiated skin. The diffuse reflection has long been used to in vivo monitor skin chromophores (hemoglobin and melanin). In this paper, the temporal behavior of the autofluorescence spectra (excitation wavelength 337 nm) of the human skin under ultraviolet irradiation (4 MED) are presented. A simple model of the skin was used for analysis of blood content in different skin layers. In vivo autofluorescence measurements are suggested for improving the precise detection of blood and melanin content in the human skin.
