In this research, we proposed a method to estimate the concentrations of melanin and blood in different layers of skin tissue. Furthermore, we stimulated skin with a warm bath and a carbon dioxide bath and obtained spectral data by a multispectral camera six times during 18 minutes. Based on the captured image, we estimated the blood concentrations in each blood layers by the proposed method. The result showed that the blood concentration of the deep layer is increased only with the stimulation by carbon dioxide bath, and the blood concentration in the shallow layer is increased in both stimuli cases, but the rate of increase in the carbon dioxide bath was higher and the increase time was longer. Our result is consistent with the result of the previous research.
