We spent 25 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. If you're a professional dermatologist — or just someone who's suspicious that the mole on your shoulder might be cancerous — a high-quality dermatoscope is an essential tool. These devices are often handheld or attachable to your phone, and with their powerful magnification, bright LEDs, and variety of polarization options, they'll allow you to see your blemishes in a whole new light. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best dermatoscope on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 29, 2018:

Picture quality, magnification power, and brightness of lights were the primary factors in our rankings, with ease of use factoring in heavily as well. DermLite dominated the rankings, as they have a wider variety of options than competing manufacturers.

After getting his bachelor’s from the University of Texas, Quincy Miller moved out to Los Angeles, where he soon found work as a copywriter and researcher, specializing in health and wellness topics for a major online media brand. Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
