Abstract : There have already been reports and evaluations in foreign countries concerning damage to human skin from ruby laser irradiation. However, all of these reports were on the skin of people from the Caucasus and of blacks. Their skin lesion threshold values are fairly high, and are not completely appropriate for Asians. On the basis of experiments with pig skin, this article uses the same ruby laser to irradiate human skin, observing the erythema occurrence rate, and through statistical processing, calculates the dosage for 50 percent erythema reaction.
