The diverse SkinPen® patient profile includes every skin type in the FST.
For doctors, scientists and clinicians, the Fitzpatrick Skin Type (FST) is the most common scale/method used to assess the categories of skin types with regards to sunburn risk and skin cancer risk (3). Understanding your own skin type in this spectrum helps refine your choices in aesthetic treatments.
The scale uses a person’s phenotype (physical traits they exhibit) as well as how their skin reacts to sun exposure to estimate their overall skin type. This is done to assist the clinician in determining how to best care for the patient given how others with similar skin types have fared with different treatments and medications.
An example of this is how physicians assess which patients are suitable candidates for fractional laser treatments. Since lasers can leave areas of hyperpigmentation (darker areas of skin) in patients with darker skin types, clinicians often do not recommend lasers for these patients, or even those who are of lighter skin types who have allowed their skin to tan. The diverse SkinPen® patient profile includes every skin type, making it a breakthrough for patients susceptible to hyperpigmentation.
