Basic Applications

Dermatologists, cosmetic surgeons, estheticians, and beauty and hair salon professionals can all provide more in-depth analysis to their customers, and create for them a better understanding of their own skin and hair conditions.

Hair Care
Shiny oiliness at the root of the hair, hair damage, and overall scalp condition are made clearly visible. Without pulling out hairs for laboratory analysis, the hair shaft surface can be inspected for general damage, product buildup, hooks on the cuticle, and split ends so that the best treatment can be provided.

Skin Care
Skin texture, smoothness, coarseness, oiliness, dryness, chapping, desquamation, clogged pores, wrinkles, blemishes, and other surface conditions can be shown simultaneously to the treatment professional and the client. Also view subdermal features with polarized lenses; raised/dilated capillaries, pore size, uneven color, hyper pigmentation. Skin sensors measure moisture, oil/sebum, and skin elasticity.

Hair Transplantation
Micrograft preparation is made easier with the aid of a video microscope and color monitor. Individual graft placements can be made more precise, and the entire process can be inspected more easily to assure high quality work. For post-operative care, Scalar video microscopes with polarized lenses allow the physician to examine the health of hair follicles below the surface of the skin. Ingrown and misdirected hairs can be identified before they cause irritation. Potential problems, such as localized infections, can be observed at the earliest stages, and appropriate treatment can be administered.

Hair Growth
With video microscope technology, new hairs can be seen growing in before they are visible to the naked eye. Growth rates can be determined by measuring hair legth over time, compared to a shaved test area. Simple analysis on captured images including measurement is available with our CompareView software option.
