skintel melanin reader

The Skintel™ Melanin Reader™ provides an additional element of treatment confidence by determining the average melanin density of skin, in a quantitative manner, prior to energy-based aesthetic treatment - such as hair removal or skin renewal. Understanding how much melanin is in the skin helps the aesthetic professional to better choose the treatment settings on Palomar systems for enhanced treatment outcomes, while minimizing risk of over treatment.

 

For use with the Palomar Icon™ Aesthetic System and the Vectus™ Laser, the Skintel™ reader aids the treatment process by providing suggested test spot settings based on the individual's Melanin Index value.

Skintel Melanin Reader

Until now, aesthetic treatment providers have primarily relied on fairly subjective tools to determine a client's skin type - including the traditional Fitzpatrick Skin Type evaluation, observations of the client's skin, and the client's account of recent sun exposure.

 

The Skintel™ Melanin Reader™, the only FDA-cleared melanin reader, now offers practitioners a quantitative method of measuring melanin content for better treatment guidance and an added element of confidence.

 

The Skintel Melanin Reader measures the skin diffuse reflectance at three unique wavelengths of light. These values are computed into a Melanin Index value, which corresponds to a Skintel fluence as a suggestion for a starting test spot fluence.

 

The aesthetic treatment provider takes Skintel measurements on a section of skin within or near the area to be treated. An average of the measurements is sent to the Palomar system via a wireless connection.

 

The Palomar system then suggests a starting test spot fluence; the practitioner then uses clinical judgment to choose a starting test spot fluence, which may be the suggested Skintel fluence or a higher or lower fluence.
