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
