OPERATING PROCEDURE

STEP 1: PREPARING FOR DIAGNOSIS

It’s essential to cleanse your face thoroughly, removing any makeup or sunscreen, for an accurate diagnosis.

STEP 2: INITIAL ASSESSMENT WITH DAYLIGHT MODE

Diagnosis commences with the Daylight mode, scrutinising visible skin irregularities such as pigmentation, dryness and redness.

STEP 3: COMPREHENSIVE ASSESSMENT WITH LED-UV MODE

We then transition to the LED-UV mode to reveal hidden skin conditions. Conditions are signalled through a colour-coded system:

  • Pale Blue: Normal, healthy skin
  • White: Dead skin cells
  • Dark Blue: Dehydrated, thin skin
  • Brown: Dark spots and pigmentation
  • Yellow: Oily areas
  • Dark Pink or Orange: Comedones and clogged pores

STEP 4: CAPTURING IMAGES & ANALYSIS

Utilise the universal smartphone visor to capture images of your skin in both modes, allowing you to monitor changes over time and discuss your findings with a skincare professional.
