However, to advise on which treatments are most suitable to treat your skin conditions, we always ensure our patients undergo a digital skin analysis first. This is a key part of your consultation and undertaken prior to any facial skin treatment we perform in-clinic.
Using cross-polarized and UV lighting to record and measure surface and subsurface skin conditions by taking a series of multi-spectral images, the VISIA digital skin analysis can help us see exactly which indications need to be treated.
This helps to reveal any damage and signs of ageing both on and beneath the surface of the skin, which may be missed by the human eye. It can also help us to determine not only our patient’s overall skin condition, but their skin age, too.
It is using this state-of-the-art technology that we are able to explore eight key areas of your complexion to understand the needs of your skin:
- Porphyrins(bacterial excretions)
- UV Spots
- Red Areas
- Brown spots
The system works by taking images of your face from three precise angles – not only helping you to see what is happening now but also means you can accurately review how your treatment results are progressing over time.
This is so we can analyse your skin condition from the superficial level such as acne spots and blemishes, to any deep underlying damage, such as ultraviolet damage and pigmentation.
This comprehensive digital skin analysis means we are able to tailor your treatments and skincare products to your unique skin conditions, maximising both the repair and correction of your skin health, giving you optimal results.
In addition, VISIA can assess the presence of expressive and static lines and wrinkles, as well as any redness or build-up of bacteria (porphyrins) within the skin.
The VISIA system also allows us to show you, our patient, in a clear way how your skin is being affected by various issues, such as the sun, pollution or stress, as well as being a great way to demonstrate how treatments are helping your skin progress over time.
