Skin metrology for clinical research with optics and image processing is a
new and emerging field for diagnostic studies of a patient’s skin health.
The quantification of skin analysis is important for accurately measuring
skin conditions such as UV damage for early cancer detection, skin topology
for aging, and sebum distribution for acne. We have built an instrument
which can give a patient a customized report of his skin health based on a
few quick pictures of the face. Analysis of the data can very readily
provide information about a person’s susceptibility to sun damage or
melanoma scoring among other things and return instant feedback to help
patients take preventative measures. The cosmetic industry is a $10 billion
a year industry in America alone. Carrying out product studies for efficacy
and safety by independent research laboratories with our technology can help
verify treatment options and formulate customized cosmetics for skin health.
