GEORGE BUSINESS NEWS - When the DermaScan concept was theorised by Danish dermatologist Professor Jørgen Serup, the scope was to provide a non-invasive tool for assessment of skin tumors, especially the invasion depth of malignant melanomas.
Flemming K Christensen, the CEO and founder of Beauté Pacifique Medical Skin Care, was a key team member at Cortex Technology where the DermaScan was developed with the idea to be introduced worldwide as a new high tech medical instrument for dermatology.
Says Christensen, "I was entrusted with the responsibility of transferring state-of-the-art brain-scanning technology between MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) in Boston and Denmark and for the first time, it became possible to diagnose Alzheimer's disease. Patients that were brought to me in ambulances were already terminal and this is where my deep desire and passion for helping people was tempered."
The DermaScan became a very useful tool for investigating pathological conditions in the skin in vivo and it was quickly realised that there was a lot to learn from scanning both diseased and healthy skin. It was striking to see how clearly the different stages of skin ageing or damage could be seen objectively at a glance by the scanner's visualization of the skin's collagen and elastin fibre structure up to 7mm deep.
Beauté Pacifique is born
Christensen pondered the following question - could skin care products be found that were effective enough to reverse both ageing and sun-damage?
"No such products with published research could be found," he says, "and so I established Beauté Pacifique with exactly this scope - to objectively show improvements in skin that were visible not only in the mirror, but also by an ultrasound scanner, namely the DermaScan.
"More than one million in-clinic ultrasound-scans have now been performed at Beauté Pacifique centres around the world that show real improvements in the skin by comparing images taken before and after in-clinic and home care treatment."
Inspiration and knowledge from the newest research in the medical industry was the source of the DermaScan technological innovation and now, four generations later, the DermaScan is the leading dermatological diagnostic instrument available.
The DermaScan is able to display Beauté Pacifique's patented active ingredient penetration system that is capable of penetrating and delivering anti-ageing actives to the deepest part of the skin. Unique ingredient cocktails, developed by dermatologists using the latest complex compositions of ingredients, are made in our Denmark facility.
This is where we manufacture pharmaceuticals under EU pharmaceutical regulations - thus Beauté Pacifique skin care products are medical grade, with quality, standards and values at the highest international level.
The Beauté Pacifique penetration system is proven in an independent double blinded, placebo-controlled Danish study, carried out by Professor Peter Bjerring at the Dermatological Department at Marselisborg Hospital, verified by the Department of Pharmacy, and published in the European Journal of Dermatology.
Beauté Pacifique is the perfect collaboration between medical science and the skin expert.
