Tm:YAP laser system at power levels up to 1.2 W at 1980 nm was established in both continuous-wave and modulated modes of operation. The fluence effect of the laser system for skin ablation was analyzed by histology analysis with Wistar rat skin tissues. Thermally altered length, thermally altered area, ablation area, and ablation depth parameters were measured on histology images of skin samples just after the laser operation and after four-day healing period. Continuous-wave mode of operation provided higher thermal effects on the skin samples. Lower fluence levels were found for efficient ablation effect. © 2010 IEEE.
