Optical-ultrasound imaging is a cost-effective method of simultaneously imaging the skin surface and the region under the surface. To the best of our knowledge, the Dermus SkinScanner is the first device capable of multimodal optical-ultrasound imaging, extending traditional dermoscopy with a window into the depths of the skin. Among other clinical applications, it can image chronic skin inflammation diseases such as psoriasis and atopic dermatitis, with the potential to provide more objective metrics of inflammation than are currently possible. In the current talk the latest results regarding skin imaging are presented, especially regarding the monitoring of skin inflammation. The talk concludes with a discussion of possible forays into cosmetic applications based on the existing experience with the device, including testing of cosmetic products, monitoring of skin hydration, and monitoring of cosmetic interventions such as use of fillers.
