High resolution skin imaging
The hydration probe and module makes use of the conductance measurement principle, which is known to measure the water binding capacity of the stratum corneum.
For this, two probe designs are available – a pin probe featuring eight pin electrodes, – a flat faced probe with the electrodes organised as concentric rings.
The pin probe electrode design is ideal for normal/dry skin, scalp applications and in hairy areas.
The flat faced probe with its traditional electrode design is a popular choice for normal skin measurements.
Both probes offer a springloaded design in order to trigger the measurement at a preset skin load. The hydration software allows for performing up to eight sequential measurements, which can be named for ease of operation.
