The percentage of energy penetration for each wavelength was determined through skin before and after clipping and then shaving of hair, through shaved skin over SDFTs, and through shaved skin, SDFTs, and DDFTs positioned in anatomically correct orientation. Influence of hair color; skin preparation, color, and thickness; and wavelength on energy penetration were assessed. Clipping or shaving of skin improved energy penetration.

The near-infrared NIR window also known as optical window or therapeutic window defines the range of wavelengths from to nanometre nm where light has its maximum depth of penetration in tissue. Since scattering increases the distance travelled by photons within tissue, the probability of photon absorption also increases. Because scattering has weak dependence on wavelength, the NIR window is primarily limited by the light absorption of blood at short wavelengths and water at long wavelengths.
Published this week in the Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment, the study "Near-infrared photonic energy penetration: can infrared phototherapy effectively reach the human brain? The findings include:. Previous work by Henderson and others has shown that the most common areas injured in the human brain are the bottom of the frontal lobes and the temporal lobes which can be cm from the scalp.
Penetration depth of ultraviolet, visible light and infrared radiation in biological tissue has not previously been adequately measured. Risk assessment of typical intense pulsed light and laser intensities, spectral characteristics and the subsequent chemical, physiological and psychological effects of such outputs on vital organs as consequence of inappropriate output use are examined. This technical note focuses on wavelength, illumination geometry and skin tone and their effect on the energy density fluence distribution within tissue.

Painful conditions that can therapeutically benefit from laser irradiation are associated with pain generators found at varying tissue depth, ranging from relatively shallow target tissues skin, subcutaneous structures, etc. GaAs therapeutic lasers are useful for anti-edema and lympathic effects, treating painful conditions of the skin and subcutaneous tissues, wound healing, anti-inflammatory effects, and tissue regeneration. GaAs lasers can also provide the same therapeutic results for deep tissue structures—such as facet joints, acetabular joints, herniated discs, etc. Gallium Arsenide GaAs therapeutic lasers present an interesting challenge when applying them to tissues of varying depths and when attempting to achieve different therapeutic effects.

Knowledge of the penetration depth of laser radiation in human skin is an essential prerequisite to identifying its method of action. Mathematical simulations and estimates from the literature suggest that the depth of penetration of laser radiation using wavelengths from nm up to nm may be up to 50mm.
