SkinScanner is very easy to use. Firstly, you simply need to attach the tool to the upper part of your iOS smartphone. After that, open the Skin360 app and it will sync up with the scanner tool. Once you are ready, you must take an up-close photo of your face, just like taking a selfie.

The 12 LED lights and 30 times magnification lens will scan your face for pores, wrinkles, fine lines as well as the moisture level of your skin. The level of clarity is not something an ordinary iPhone or other smartphone camera can take and this is the best thing about SkinScanner.

The app will not only be able to reveal the real condition of your skin, but it also will be able to compare your skin with other users in your age range. As a result, you can get an idea of how a healthy skin of people your age should be like.
As for now, SkinScanner will only focus on aesthetics. It is not yet capable to treat acne or signs of other skin conditions because for that, the company will need FDA approval. However, it is not impossible that it could happen sometime in the future. Furthermore, the app also will show various beauty tips that you can use to improve the youthful looks of your skin.
SkinScanner and its iPhone app will be officially unveiled in the upcoming CES in Las Vegas. If you are interested to purchase this product, it will hit the market in the summer and it will cost $50.
