Dr. William Stebbins, board-certified Dermatologist, wrote:
“I’ve found the ProScope Micro Mobile to be easy to use and works seamlessly with the iPhone®. I’ve been able to produce numerous high quality photos of varying magnifications with the PMM. Very good battery life as well.”
Previous versions of the ProScope have been used worldwide in hair restoration though this is the first ProScope model to have gained acceptance by dermatologists and estheticians worldwide. Through several university studies Bodelin engineers responded to feedback from students and professors for a simple to use device with professional optics and adjustable lighting at a price anyone can afford.

Twelve LEDs – arrayed in two alternating circles to allow for polarized (optional filter) and white reflective lighting with a rocker switch for intensity adjustment. An onboard lithium-ion battery capable of five hours of continuous use provides power for the LEDs and a USB charging cable comes with the kit.
