Dermlite HUD is Screen for Skin Cancer on your Smartphone. It is the latest and greatest tool in the fight against skin cancer. HUD is a medical-grade lens that attaches to any smartphone camera, allowing you to take crystal-clear images of the moles on your skin. The accompanying First Derm app will teach you the skin cancer warning signs, remind you to track your spots over time and enable you to share your HÜD images with a dermatologist for evaluation.
Up to 95% of skin cancer deaths are preventable if they’re detected early. HÜD enables early detection through enhanced self-screening.
The fact is that all moles should be considered dangerous until proven otherwise. 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetimes, resulting in the death of over 12,000 people every year. Skin cancer isn’t just a problem for the elderly or fair-skinned, all ages and skin tones are susceptible. But there’s hope: early detection greatly increases chances of survival.
The fight against skin cancer begins with you. Check yourself and your loved ones’ moles – HUD will be your guide.
Once you receive your HUD, download the First Derm companion app, available on iOS or Android.
The app will educate you on the warning signs of skin cancer so you’ll know what to look out for. The app also stores a detailed archive of your HUD images. When you want a spot evaluated, send it in to First Derm’s network of board-certified dermatologists for review. The dermatologist will let you know if the mole requires an immediate biopsy, or if it’s in the clear until your next regular checkup.
