No7 Pro Derm Scan service has launched in Boots stores from 6th April 2022, enabling free access to a dermatologist-grade device, available nationwide for the first time!
No7, the UK’s number one skincare brand, this week announces the launch of Pro Derm Scan; a game-changing new diagnostic service which will give customers the ultimate in personalised, accessible skincare and cosmetic recommendations. The new No7 Pro Derm Scan service uses a hand-held diagnostic device which analyses both skin condition AND skin tone. This technology combined with the expert advice of the No7 Beauty Advisors, is the first and only service of its kind to be available nationwide, providing free skincare analysis for Boots customers with a dermatologist-grade device.
No7’s Pro Derm Scan service will enable UK shoppers to understand their skin better and make the right decisions for their skincare and cosmetics routines based on scientific analysis of their own skin, providing confidence that they are purchasing products tailored to their specific needs and concerns. The launch follows research conducted by No7 on 2,000 UK women2 which found that 75 per cent of women only use a third of their skincare and makeup with a further 86 per cent confirming they have bought a skincare product only to try it and find it doesn’t suit their skin.
Suitable for all skin tones, No7 Pro Derm Scan recreates the controlled setting of a scientific laboratory to analyse skin, providing highly accurate images and measurements. The tool is designed to deliver high-resolution scanning that can detect subtle changes to the skin and skin features smaller than 0.02mm (five times smaller than a human hair) before they become apparent to the naked eye. It uses a wealth of scientific research and expertise to analyse the results of the scans and provide the customer with personalised skin scores for key skin measures. Twenty million skin areas are analysed per scan, to provide scientifically validated analysis of skin tone and four skin parameters: fine lines and wrinkles, pores, oil balance and hydration. To date, the device has been granted four international patents, with 16 patents pending.
Kirandeep Sandhu – No7 Global Skincare Innovation Manager comments, “No7’s Pro Derm Scan service is a game-changer, bringing skin analysis technology with a human touch to the high street. Through a personalised consultation with our No7 Beauty Advisors, No7 consumers will be able to see their skin like never before, understand how their skin is performing, and receive expert advice on the right skincare and cosmetics products and regimes for their skin. We are delivering a significant step-change in consumers’ experience of skin diagnostics and their understanding of their own skin, by continuing to bring even more personalised services to consumers, underpinned by our scientific credibility and skin expertise.”
How it works
The Pro Derm Scan device has three key functions – a hydration sensor, a magnification lens, and multispectral-lighting. These functions are essential in order to conduct skin and skin tone analysis above and below the skin’s surface while working on all skin types.
The 15-minute No7 Pro Derm Scan consultation involves skin analysis using the dermatologist-grade device
followed by personalised product and regime recommendations from the expert No7 Beauty Advisor. The service is available in 459 Boots stores nationwide and appointments can be booked online at https://www.boots.com/no7-pro-derm-scan from Wednesday 6th April 2022. No7 customers can also rediscover the secret to amazing skin with the reassurance of the No7 challenge; try the products for four weeks and if you don’t love the results you get your money back.
