Background and Objectives: Application of local
vacuum pressure to human skin during laser irradiation
results in less absorption in the epidermis and more light
delivered to targeted vessels with an increased blood
volume. The objective of the present numerical study is to
assess the effect of applying local vacuum pressure on the
temperatures of the epidermis and small vessels during
port wine stain (PWS) laser treatment.
