Skin Topography Directly Measured with the Multi-Talent
The Visioscan® VC 20plus is a unique UVA-light video camera with high resolution to study the skin surface directly. The SELS®parameters (Surface Evaluation of the Living Skin) have been developed especially for this camera and are used in numerous studies. The images show the structure of the skin and the level of dryness very impressively. The camera can be used on pigmented spots and lesions and on hair. With its multi-functional software, the Visioscan® VC 20plus is a very flexible system to characterize skin surface condition easily, accurately and very economically. It had been used on board of the International Space Station ISS for several years.
Where to use:
There are numerous fields of application efficacy testing and claim support for cosmetics:
SELS (Surface Evaluation of the Living Skin)
This evaluation method was developed by the Institute for Experimental Dermatology, Prof. Tronnier, University of Witten-herdecke, Germany. The grey level distribution of the image isused to evaluate –within one second – four clinical parameters to quantitatively and qualitatively describe the skin surface as an index:
Skin smoothness (Sesm), Skin roughness (Ser), Scaliness (Sesc), Wrinkles (Sew).
