11:46 am
and the super committee, not so super without getting a deal done. and then third quarter gdp, from 2.5% to 2%. they were expecting a downward revision, but not by as much. the takeaway, we're not going into the recession and not seeing the bounce back. we are just not getting it. i want to point out, hewlett-packard, a lot of people own this stock and it's selling off. the reported earnings did meet expectations, and they are no longer giving guidance of revenue, just giving it on profits. they want to focus on making money and not be so concerned with growing revenue. hewlett-packard down again. and we lose perspective on this. we have a holiday, and the rest
11:47 am
of the world doesn't. things could happen in asia and europe while we are stuffing our faces, so investors are worried about what will happen as we sit back and watch the lions or whatever team we're watching. >> well, i am looking forward to it. we'll get through the weekend and enjoy it and then be back to work. stock market will be open on friday, right? >> yeah, a half day, although i am taking it off. don't tell anybody. there's no technology that makes it possible to scan your skin and report subsurface skin conditions such as wrinkles and spots and unevenness and photo damage. with the information from this technology, dermatologist can create a skin plan for you. tell us what you brought with you? >> i have a couple things that i use in my office. this is what we call a wood slam. when you have discoloration in your skin, it could be
11:48 am
superficial or deep. this device, turning it on, it's kind of purple. when we are in a dark room, it highlights what we call ep determine annual pigment. when you are in a dark room, we shine it over the skin. white will actually floor yes, like a dark poster and dark will look black. we can tell what pigment is it. this is one device. whereas this device here is what we use and it has a reading and it's quantitative in its determination of your pigment. if i do this on the back of your
11:49 am
hand, it's calibrated to 98.4, and your reading is a 54.7. and if i do my reading, my reading is 32. so the lower the number, the darker the complexion. >> what information does that give you to help you treat problems that somebody might have on their face? >> well, if you have pigment change in your skin, i want to know what your true color is, but i also want to know what the dark color is so i know how to bring those two colors, those numbers together. >> how would you treat it then? >> well, we treat it with bleaching agents and lightening agents and some will lighten faster than others. when patients come into the office, they can't really tell if something is working, and then i put the meter on it and i can determine if their numbers
11:50 am
have changed. >> this is somebody who has been treated after you have looked and seen the difference. tell us about that. >> this is the example i was mentioning. this is ma laz ma on the left side and treatment on the right side. beginning, you want to determine what her normal complexion is compared to the dark areas, and this will give me a value. so what i am trying to do is even her color by looking at it, not just appearance wise, but scientifically. >> any other ways of doing it other than creams to lighten it? >> yes, chemical peeling, and microdetermine abrasion. and so we can measure that difference, and we can recommend more of a sanding of the skin, which is a light abrasion, to allow the home preparations to penetrate deeper, or chemical peeling.
11:51 am
>> these are problems that people of all different back grounds face? >> exactly. >> thank you. that was interesting to see how deep those discolorations go. thank you. coming up, the frederickburg's mom camped out for justin bieber. on "ellen," the two most adorable girls are interviewing all the
