SwimZip‘s President, Betsy Johnson, is a skin cancer survivor, so here at SwimZip we take skin cancers and melanomas extremely seriously. Our swimwear is absolutely adorable – but its most important feature is the UPF 50+ protection that blocks 99% of those nasty cancer causing UVA and UVB rays.
Because of our commitment to protecting people from skin cancer, we were particularly excited to see the Skin Vision iPhone and Android app that helps you check lesions or moles along with increasing your understanding about UV index, skin health and more.
We know that dermatologists suggest frequent self-check examinations to catch melanoma in the early stages. But how do you know if a mole may be cancerous or not? While you can and should consult a skin physician, you can be extra careful and use your iPhone to check the mole out. Any way to help keep an eye on potentially problematic skin issues is good news to us here at SwimZip!
Skin Vision is easy: simply download the app from the iTunes or Google Play store. Then, take a photo of the skin lesion or mole and upload it. The app uses a mathematical algorithm made “a team of dermatologists, mathematicians and computer scientists” to determine if more investigation is warranted by a dermatologist.
The basic version of SkinVision is free, the premium option costs $4.99. Check out the SkinVision website for more details and FAQs.
