This course will explain the processes involved during the laser heating of biological tissue. Details will be given to solve light diffusion approximation, bio-heat, and thermal damage equations. The role of optical, thermal, and damage parameters on the final thermal action will be explained. Specific examples such as “Laser fractional photothermolysis of the skin” will be presented.
