GPSkin® Barrier Device for Rosacea

Recommended Posts


A paper concluded that the GPSkin® Barrier device "determines TEWL and SCH accurately in healthy and impaired skin barrier state and can monitor skin barrier function in rosacea during treatment. The GPSkin device is much more practical compared to previous skin barrier tools when used in clinical practice.' [1]

"Based on these findings, we concluded that GPSkin provides reasonably precise and reliable measurements of SC hydration and TEWL as compared to current devices." [2]

"GPSkin Barrier® is a reliable, affordable, and versatile device for assessing epidermal permeability barrier function and SC hydration."[3]
