About 1 in 4 people suffer from a skin condition - from acne to skin cancer - but few have quick and easy access to a dermatologist. With dangerous conditions like skin cancer on the rise, rigorous and regular screening is important, now more than ever. No one should have to anxiously wait for months to have a skin condition assessed, and many teledermatological tools simply aren’t reliable. That’s where we come in.
We exist to save lives.
Our SIAscopy on DermSecure™ is a fully integrated service that combines innovative, peer-reviewed technology with a secure, cloud-based patient management system. It’s the only tool that offers perfect image capture technology with clinical, dermascopic and spectrophotometric views of moles and other skin conditions. Designed by dermatologists and physicians, our SIAscopy on DermSecure™ is being used in over 200 pharmacies in 3 countries with regulatory approvals in 35 countries including USA, Canada, Australia, Brazil and the EU.
