Our cameras were enabling specialists to quickly and accurately map how many follicles were in a square centimeter, which is a key metric in that industry.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) March 31, 2014
Firefly Global successfully returns from showcasing their wireless digital dermatoscope at this year’s American Academy of Dermatology Conference in Denver, CO. Already popular in Primary Care and Telemedicine, Firefly Global continues to introduce more dermatologists to their innovative, leading edge products.
While Firefly’s skin cameras were designed with dermatologists in mind, another field that has grown to include Firefly digital dermatoscopes is hair transplant specialists. Hair camera, Trichoscope, Follicular Scope – Whatever you might call it, devices used by hair transplant technicians to count hair are on the rise. And it’s no wonder, when in 2012 over 88,000 surgical hair restoration procedures were performed in the US and over 310,000 worldwide! That’s not even total patients - This census, released by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, shows almost a million people worldwide were hair restoration patients in 2012. Using Firefly’s Digital Dermatoscope a hair transplant specialist can better tap into this growing market by recommending treatment, checking the thickness of the hair, and informing a potential patient if they are a good candidate for a hair transplantation or not. Dan Lucey, Director of Business Development at Firefly Global, was at a previous skin care show and saw the reaction from hair transplant specialists first hand:
“Our low cost, high quality digital magnifying dermatoscopes amazed attendees. Our cameras were enabling specialists to quickly and accurately map how many follicles were in a square centimeter, which is a key metric in that industry. This feature allows specialists to save time and improve feedback to potential patients, improving acceptance rates and compliance.”
Firefly Global is in the business of making high quality, affordable, video otoscopes and digital dermatoscopes for organizations worldwide. Firefly wireless and wired cameras are small, easy to use and standards-based, making integration with video conferencing solutions quick and easy. Already popular in Ear-Nose-Throat, Primary Care, Telemedicine and Audiology, the number of Dermatologists and Skin Care Specialists using Firefly are multiplying rapidly.
