"Observ has transformed our consultations in a phenomenal way."


Yafit Cohen / Clinic for Rosacea, Acne and Demodex Mites Infestation, Israel

Observ’s imaging of the skin is so comprehensive and easy to understand. Patients like to see their skin change during treatment. It helps to motivate them to follow all doctor’s recommendations.


Dr. Tiina Meder / Meder Beauty Science Ltd, UK

One of the important steps in a consultation is, without a doubt, the skin diagnosis. I find it essential to study the patient's skin, using the Observ to get high quality images. The multiple light modes allow me to conduct a profound skin analysis. Patients are happy with their treatment results. I am also able to develop better work protocols as the Observ helps me gain more insight with its accurate analysis.”


Dr. Sergio Fernández / Medical director Le Med. Madrid

"Observ helps me to make a more accurate diagnostic than other everyday usage tools."

"Observ is a perfect tool for dermatologists helping to see into the skin deep but with no difficulty to explain it to patients like many other visualisation tools on the market."


Dr. Tiina Meder / Meder Beauty Science Ltd, UK
