Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopy "The Window into Skin"


Pain-free deep down under the skin: Confocal laser scanning microscopy is a non-invasive way to map and depict living tissue layers down to the upper reticular dermis, composed of thick, densely packed collagen fibers Numerous stressful tissue excision can potentially be avoided and the waiting time for results is frequently reduced from weeks to just a few hours and sometimes even only minutes. 

 

Confocal laser scanning microscopy has been successfully used in medical research, in dermatology, oncology, and burn medicine. When diagnosing and treating skin cancer as well as the pre-screening of moles, birthmarks, and liver spots, these devices are also of great help to the dermatologist and highly beneficial for the patient. This page features a current list of dermatologists' offices, health centers, and clinics using confocal laser scanning microscopy.
