Raleigh, NC, January 08, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Dave Mangrum, president and CEO of Iatria Spa and Health Center, has announced that the spa has been selected by IntuiSkin, a subsidiary of MEMSCAP (NYSE Euronext: MEMS), the leading provider of innovative solutions based on MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) technology, as one of five nationwide flagship locations for the United States rollout of the company’s newest product line, IOMA™. A unique concept that puts technology at the service of the skin, Skin Evidence for IOMA™ is medical equipment that serves as a patented skin diagnostic aid. Currently available throughout Europe and
Australia, the tool analyzes the skin in the following areas: fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation (color and hyper-pigmentation), redness, hairiness, sebum, hydration, trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL) and cutaneous temperature. Based on the results, the skin care practitioner is able to clearly identify the needs of their client’s skin so that they can recommend the appropriate regimen and care.
Each client can elect to have their results anonymously stored in an international database of users which provides skin care professionals with a worldwide analysis of skin. This technology is free with any facial and is available at Iatria at Creedmoor Road, located at 8020 Creedmoor Road, and at Iatria at Wakefield Crossings, located at 13200 New Falls of Neuse Road.

“We are proud that IntuiSkin has selected Iatria to be one of only five United State locations to rollout their newest technology,” said Mangrum. “IOMA™ will provide our skin care practitioners with more detailed information than ever before so that they can truly provide the best skin care regimen possible for each individual.”
“Iatria’s reputation for excellence is well-known in France which is why we selected them as one of five flagship sites for our new product,” said Jean-Michel Karam, chairman and CEO of MEMSCAP. “All of the other sites that we selected for this rollout are of the same caliber and are widely respected by thought leaders in our industry.”
