Where does light go when it enters the skin? Well, it’s actually quite complicated! Some of it reflects off the skin surface, some is absorbed in the melanin (basal layer), some penetrates through to the fatty tissue, while some is turned around and escapes back into the air. The follow slideshow gives a simple explanationContinue reading “Light penetration into skin and the subsequent temperature rise”
Mike recently found an old video from 1991 which his company, DermaLase Ltd., made to promote their newly launched Q-switched ruby laser for tattoo removal.
