Delfin Technologies launches SkinPhotoTyper

Published: 25-Oct-2023

Delfin Technologies launches a new instrument called SkinPhotoTyper for objective assessment of skin phototype. SkinPhotoTyper was launched at Estetika in Brussels in October 2023

SkinPhotoTyper is a fully portable and wireless instrument for measuring the skin phototype. The device utilizes scientifically validated measurement technology. Skin phototype is measured based on the ITA degree and classified with a scale from 1 (very light) to 6 (dark) similar to Fitzpatrick scale. Skin phototype assessment helps in adjusting the power of the IPL and laser devices before hair removal to increase the safety of the treatment. Additionally, skin phototype measurements can be used in tattoo removal, chromotherapy aesthetic care or in any study related to skin pigmentation.

SkinPhotoTyper can be used either as a stand-alone device or measurement data can be collected wirelessly to DMC software. DMC software allows users to create individual research projects, record and store measurement data, and export measurement data to other programs for statistical analysis.
