DIGITAL AND QUANTITAVE IMAGING BY CameraScan V3®-FrameScan V3®
Picture 1. CameraScan V3®-FrameScan V3® captures images using pre-set parameters and analyzes skin characteristics by comparing the images recorded at different times (T0, T1, T2, …).
The tool is of utmost quality: cosmetics applications require high sensitivity and reproducibility to allow the evaluation of their efficacy.
Hardware quality (resolution, homogeneous lighting, visio-bench, etc.), all functionalities, metrological levels (quantitative and calibrated measurements) make the difference.
If images are not reproducible or their resolution is insufficient, a clear trend of the effect of the cosmetic product cannot be obtained even with the best image analysis software.
Thanks to this tool, the evaluation of the long lasting effect of a make-up, skin color, brightness, homogeneity, lashes and mat effect becomes possible. Each aspect is quantified by a parameter: in this way, the difference between before and after the treatment can be measured.

Picture 3. Follow-up of make-up over time. The software processes the image to obtain color quantification in comparison with the untreated area.
