Abstract: The wide spread use of lasers as a treatment modality emphasized the need that users are aware of the parameters that effect the dose applied during treatment. The results presented show the importance to know the optical parameters (absorption, scattering, anisotropy and refractive index) at the treatment wavelength as well as the thickness of the skin layers, especially the epidermal layer which contains the absorbing melanosomes
