Pilot Study on In-vivo Non-invasive Skin Imaging Using Multiphoton Microscopy
The purpose of this pilot study is to employ multiphoton microscopy to non-invasively image in-vivo pigmented and non-pigmented human skin for characterization of their morphologic and functional features. Currently, there is no standard non-invasive method for skin imaging.

Multiphoton microscopy imaging to collect information about changes in skin cells and tissue
Device: multiphoton microscopy.
Researchers developed a non-invasive multi photon microscopy instrument to image normal and lesional skin. Skin lesions can be imaged and evaluated using the multiphoton microscopy device imaging method and compared to standard of care processed skin biopsies.
Any biopsies will be performed by the health care provider as a standard of care procedure. The microscopy images obtained before biopsy will be compared with histopathology results.
