Background:  Little is known as the effects of mobile connected dermatoscope services on diagnostic accuracy for sensitive skin. Confocal laser scanning microscope (CLSM) can noninvasively measure the thickness of epidermis. Combination of the two devices to observe sensitive skin may receive unexpected effects. Aim:  To evaluate the application effect on sensitive skin of the combination of handyscope and confocal laser scanning microscope. Methods: 20 simple sensitive-skinned patients and 20 volunteers participated in the study. Cheek typically dermoscopic images were obtained from patients and the changes of the skin texture were observed. Their epidermis thicknesses as well as the volunteers' were measured so that the thicknesses of the two groups were compared. Results:  Dermoscopic pictures of the skin texture obviously showed that dilated capillaries looked like earthworms with pigmented patches more or less floating above and skin roughness as well as deepened dermatoglyph was also conspicuously present in some patients. The mean epidermal thickness of the patients was 79.01 μm, the volunteers' was 85.78 μm. The difference between the two groups reached 6.77 μm. There was statistical significance (P=0.001). Conclusions:  Mobile connected dermatoscope and confocal laser scanning microscope might be the choice for simple sensitive skin investigation. © 2012 The Authors ICS © 2012 Society of Cosmetic Scientists and the Société Française de Cosmétologie.
