Abstract
The model of the skin as a multy layered biotissue with varying optical properties for each layer such as absorption, scattering, and scattering anisotropy factor is considered. The Monte—Carlo method was used to evaluate the effects of anisotropic scattering and refractive index mismatch at the boundaries of the sample with regards to light distribution inside the skin during laser irradiation. Calculations were performed for some models of human skin and adjacent tissues for visible and UV ranges of wavelengths. These calculations are especially important for laser percutaneous irradiation of blood and for laser PUVA therapy.
