Abstract

In this paper, we report about simulated distribution of density of absorbed light energy within human skin following light illumination with a combination of three wavelengths (310, 514 and 800 nm) with ratios similar to ultraviolet, visible and infrared fractions of the solar irradiance spectrum. We study heat distribution within the skin treated with a sunscreen containing TiO2 nanoparticles. Our results show that administration of TiO2 particles does not cause heat load on the tissue.
