Paper Abstract

The action spectra on hemoglobin and oxyhemoglobin of cutaneous blood vessels in dependence of the depth of penetration of laser radiation on tissue is investigated. The obtained results allows to choose the proper wave-length of laser radiation for a selective and efficient action on blood chromophors. There is a narrow action spectrum in a visible spectral range in activation of photochemical processes or biostimulation mechanisms through the impact on the oxyhemoglobin on deep layer of cutaneous blood vessels. The primary mechanism of biostimulation and therapeutic effect of low energy laser radiation based on local increasing of efficiency of oxygen transportation by oxyhemoglobin of cutaneous blood vessels is discussed.
