Abstract

We present a multiphoton microscopy instrument specially designed for in vivo dermatological use that is capable of imaging human skin at 27framespersecond with 256pixels×256pixels resolution without the use of exogenous contrast agents. Imaging at fast frame rates is critical to reducing image blurring due to patient motion and to providing practically short clinical measurement times. Second harmonic generation and two-photon fluorescence images and videos acquired at optimized wavelengths are presented showing cellular and tissue structures from the skin surface down to the reticular dermis.
