In the past, patients opting for laser treatments have had to rely on the knowledge and expertise of their aesthetician to receive the best level of treatment for their skin type when it came to any laser treatment. Whether it was for fractional skin resurfacing, permanent hair reduction or photofacial treatments, aestheticians relied on the Fitzpatrick Skin Type evaluation as well as observation and account of patient.

Skintel Melanin Reader Provides Accurate Skin Reading Results

Through the use of the Skintel Melanin Reader, aestheticians can confidently treat patients knowing that the patient will receive the optimal level of treatment required to enhance their beauty or achieve their aesthetic goals. This revolutionary skin reader removes any guesswork for an aesthetician, leaving him or her to treat patients accurately with poise.

How the Skintel Melanin Reader Works

The Skintel Melanin Reader is a handheld device that is placed on an area of your skin by your aesthetician to read your Melanin index value. Wavelengths of light are then reflected, painlessly, onto your skin and back into the reader to give an accurate reading of your skin type and what level of laser you should be treated with.
"The Skintel Melanin Reader measures the skin diffuse reflectance at three unique wavelengths of light" from Palomar Medical Technology, Inc.

Skintel Melanin Reader Provides Accurate Results for ICON Aesthetic Laser System

The Skintel Melanin Reader is utilized in conjunction with the ICON laser to optimally treat patients and to meet their aesthetic goal in a timely manner verses the traditional forms of laser treatments. After an aesthetician takes a skin reading, he or she then sets the ICON at the correct level of treatment – taking out all the guesswork that could lead to under-treatment or lengthy treatments.
