Paper Abstract

To optimalize laser-parameters for therapy of port-wine stains temperature calculations have been performed on a skin model. The optimal values of these numerically evaluated variables are: wavelength λ= 415,577 or 540 nm., pulse-time t1 a few milliseconds and beam radius wi> 0.1 mm. Based on these theoretical results some experiments have been carried out which confirm the calculations. Thus laser-therapy for port-wine stains can be ameliorated.
