Microskin plc announced the launch of two different iPhone applications to help those who want to conceal vitiligo, birthmarks, burns, eczema, lupus, keloid, scarring, tattoos, and other skin-related conditions find the right second skin product. Based on proprietary color science technologies, Microskin's new mobile application will select from the company's personalized, color-matched line of waterproof second skin products. "We recently expanded our worldwide network of clinics and, now, with these apps, we can help anyone, regardless of location, access second skin products," said Barry Amor, chairman of Microskin plc.
"Other apps do a simple paint-matching program, which serves up a flat, artificial color. We took advantage of the excellent computing and camera power of today's mobile devices to build a breakthrough app that captures and calculates skin's reflective and translucent characteristics to identify a person's true skin color." The first application is available through Apple's application store and the second application is for dermatologists and skin clinics and requires a specialized iPhone clip-on device, which emits a signature light source to provide a comprehensive color match.
