Abstract
In this study, the Nd:YAG laser (1.06 μm and 1.32 μm) beam-skin tissue interaction is simulated by the MC method. Two-layer skin model-epidermis and dermis is used. The goal of the study is to explain the causes for obtaining of qualitatively different macro-effects in clinical applications of near situated IR wavelengths. The possibility to use the Nd:YAG laser in the cosmetics for skin rejuvenation by the thermal influence to collagen without any damaging effects to the surrounding tissues is shown.
