SkinPhotoTyper is a fully portable and wireless instrument for measuring the skin phototype. The device utilizes scientifically validated measurement technology. Skin phototype is measured based on the ITA degree and classified with a scale from 1 (very light) to 6 (dark) similar to Fitzpatrick scale. Skin phototype assessment helps in adjusting the power of the IPL and laser devices before hair removal to increase the safety of the treatment. Additionally, skin phototype measurements can be used in tattoo removal, chromotherapy aesthetic care or in any study related to skin pigmentation.
