Unique USB skin camera to look at certain skin areas in detail (minimum 8 x 6.4 mm). The camera has parallel and cross polarised light, simply switchable by pressing a button. The camera takes most impressive images of the skin surface, of hair and scalp and other body parts (e.g. nails, lips etc.). It is USB based and can simply be connected to any computer.
Pressing the camera button shortly switches between a parallel polarised light source, which shows the structure of the skin and a cross polarized light source which shows the deeper levels of the skin (pigmentation, blood vessels, etc.). Pressing the button longer freezes the live image on the screen.
The Visiopor can be used to visualize porphyrines (bacterial pigments from Propionibacterium acnes creating comedones and later acne) through fluorescence. Porphyrines show as orange-red spots in the pores under a specific UV light. There are numerous applications for both skin and scalp especially in the field of acne treatment and management.
It comes with an easy to handle evaluation software (distinguishing the reddish-orange porphyrines of the bacteria from other yellowish-greenish fluorescents in quantity, size and intensity)
