What is SIAscopy?

SIAscopy understands the way that light interacts with the skin; the manner in which it scatters or bounces, the amount absorbed by cells and other structures along with the different changes in wavelength or colour. By understanding these interactions and comparing the light sent into skin with light that comes back out, SIAscopy is able to determine the nature and position of many of the different components of the skin. SIAscopy measures key chromophores within the skin, in particular haemoglobin, melanin and collagen. SIAscopy is also able to determine whether melanin is in the top layer of the skin, or whether it has moved lower down into the papillary dermis (dermal melanin).
