Overview

Skintelメラニンリーダーは平均メラニン密度を数値で表し、脱毛やリジュビネーション治療の直前にパラメータを決定することができます。皮膚のメラニン数値がわかることで治療設定も楽になり、過度な設定を防ぐことができます。

SkintelメラニンリーダーはPalomar Icon™ Aesthetic System<Link to: Palomar Icon™ Aesthetic System detail page>とVectus™ Laser<Link to: Vectus™ Laser detail page>に使用でき、テストスポットのパラメータを推奨します。

今までは患者のスキンタイプの判断はFitzpatrickスキンタイプや診察、日焼けの有無を相談するなど医師の経験に頼っていました。

How the Skintel Melanin Reader Works

 

SkintelMOAms300

 

Skintelメラニンリーダーは3つの波長を使用し、反射を計算します。その数値をメラニン数値へと置き換え、テストスポットで使用するフルエンスとして表します。

Skintelは治療部位にある程度近い部位に使用してください。数値を平均した値がシステム本体へと送信されます。

その後、システム側がテストスポットフルエンスを推奨し、医師の判断によりテストスを行います。

Before & After

“Many of our patients are from varied genetic backgrounds, and it can be difficult to accurately assess Fitzpatrick skin type. I have found the Skintel reader to be a very precise, reproducible measurement of baseline melanin. It enhances a clinical assessment and sees melanin that our eyes don’t.”

Robert Weiss, MD
“I have been very impressed with results in hair removal and skin renewal utilizing Skintel reader suggested test parameters. I am most impressed with the ability to use much higher fluences with the R series handpieces in patients with browner skin tones.”

David Vasily, MD
