This little machine is meant to offer customers the chance to experience a skin health evaluation that replicates a visit to the renowned dermatologist and founder Dr Howard Murad himself.

So how does it work?

The machine takes a photo of your face and measures five key skin health markers: fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, sensitivity and redness, blemishes and inflammation and pores.

I was surprised to discover that I had clusters of pigmentation on my forehead, which is totally invisible to the naked eye, but alerted me to the fact that I need to step my my SPF routine.

Once you have gone through the results with your therapist, the machine also shows you a mock-up of your skin in five years if you don't tend to the problem areas, which is a bit of a wake up call!

The therapist then recommends a personalised product routine to address the skin concerns highlighted by the skin scanner.

This is a great way of diagnosing any underlying issues you may have with your skin and coming up with a way of treating the problems.

The Murad YouthCam Skin Scanner is available exclusively at Therapie Clinic on Molesworth Street in Dublin and is a complimentary service offered to clients and is also included with any Murad facial treatment.
