SkinPhotoTyper – Objective assessment of skin phototype
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.

White LEDs corresponding to daylight are arranged circularly inside the measurement chamber of the SkinPhotoTyper. When the SkinPhotoTyper is gently placed on the skin, the LEDs illuminate the skin in the angle of 45 degrees to minimize gloss. The reflecting light from the skin is detected with an RGB color sensor.
The measurement is not affected by ambient lightning conditions and the optical orifice of the SkinPhotoTyper is designed to minimize possible blanching effects caused by the contact pressure against the skin.
