Want to know more about how OBSERV520 Skin Diagnostic Device Works?           

The appearance of the surface of the skin is the result of a complex interaction between;

  1. Light- revealing the fine textures and glyphic patterns of the surface, AND
  2. The shine of the light reflecting of the lipid film , OR
  3. The scattering of light through rough or dry skin cells.
  4. The layers of the human skin; not only on a biological level but also in an ‘optical’ sense.

The human skin is actually not an opaque medium. The upper layer called the epidermis, is a transparent optical medium and the lower layer, the dermis is mainly a turbid (milky and cloudy) medium. When observing the skin, a significant part of its appearance is the result from light passing through the skin’s surface and illuminating its inner works.

The Light rays undergo complex optical interactions; mainly scattering about and being absorbed into different skin cells, different fluids and the variety of pigments before the rays turn around and zoom north to resurface again.

Our Cell membranes and vascular structures deeper in the skin behave like reflectors and diffusors.  As a result the appearance of the human skin is dependent on and reflective of our client’s skin’s health from the surface layers down into the deeper layers of the skin.

To assist us in our Skin Analysis and to add to the data collected from your thorough professional consultation we have, available to you , the latest tool from The Netherlands called the OBSERV DIAGNOSTIC DEVICE.

The OBSERV is designed with 5 different observation modes allowing you to view and analyse skin health through all layers; from the surface to deepest layer.

Daylight mode

This mode allows you evaluate the skin in a bright but neutral illumination. The face and its features are evenly illuminated without shadows or any emphasis on particular skin features or layers. It provides a clear and reproducible means for an overall clinical evaluation of the facial skin in a natural light.

Cross polarized mode

In the cross-polarized mode a special filter supresses any surface reflections and it allows you to look into the skin. The fine vascular; diffused redness details at the epidermal / dermal junction can easily be spotted.

Parallel Polarised Mode

In this mode the polarization filter technology is used in the opposite way; the filters enhance the surface reflection revealing the glyphic patterns, pore structures, fine surface textures and wrinkles in great detail !

The true UV mode

Inside of the skin, the cells and tissues have the natural capacity to turn these invisible rays UV  into visible light and in this way effectively turns the skin into a human lamp.! Consequently, skin impairments and conditions which previously hardly could be seen by the naked eye, now clearly stand out from normal healthy skin tissue.  Additionally different cells and skin tissues in different conditions create different fluorescent illumination patterns so skin conditions which in the daylight can deceptively look the same can now easily been differentiated.

The Wood’s Lamp mode

The wood’s mode is named after the inventor of the original Wood’s lamp, Robert William Wood. This fluorescent light has a strong diagnostic value as the blue light is reflected by skin lipids. As a result a pinkish/orange coloured haze appears on areas on which the oil film has distributed.

The Complexion mode

As a result of biological aging and the accumulation of photo-damage the skin loses its overall skin tone and evenness {homogeneity } which it originally obtained at birth. Slowly local pigmentations occur and the skin tone may develop differently across different sections of the face.
