  • Cebu meter (measurement of oil content)
     Measures the amount of sebum secreted.
  • Cute meter (measurement of skin viscoelasticity)
     Measures the elasticity of the skin.

Color measurement

By quantifying colors from “hue,” “brightness,” and “saturation,” it is possible to accurately discriminate and compare skin colors regardless of the viewer, location, or condition.
