It is a fact of life that our skin changes as we get older. In particular, fine lines and wrinkles can develop, as well as a difference in texture and visible skin changes.
In addition, the environment can play a part in damaging our skin. This can include hyperpigmentation and freckles, as well as sun damage.
VISIA Skin Analysis offers comprehensive skin investigation that can assess the condition of your skin. This includes evaluating the skin’s texture, wrinkles, pores and any pigmentation.
With the results, an individualised treatment plan can be created for the patient, which combines active skincare and clinically proven treatments. This can target particular areas for rejuvenation.
VISA Skin Analysis is innovative technology that uses multi-spectral imaging. This can reveal any visible damage on the skin and beneath the surface of the skin that is not detectable by visual examination.
The VISIA Skin Analysis is able to capture crucial information in regards to eight areas that affect the health and look of your skin:
• Spots – red or brown skin lesions, including freckles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation and vascular lesions
• Wrinkles – furrows, folds and creases in the skin
• Texture – primarily an analysis of skin smoothness
• Pores – are the circular surface openings of sweat gland ducts
• UV Spots – occur when melanin coagulates below the skin surface as a result of sun damage
• Brown Spots – lesions on the skin such as hyperpigmentation, freckles, lentignes and melisma
• Red Areas – represent a variety of areas such as acne, inflammation, rosacea or spider veins
• Porphyrins – bacterial excretions that can become lodged in pores and lead to acne
This technology in Brisbane can make a quantitative analysis that includes a comparison of individual skin conditions that are characteristics of the same age, sex and ethnicity. In addition, it can show patients how they might age with and without treatment.
This procedure is fast and totally painless for the patient. The process only takes around 10 minutes and involves taking two digital images of the patient.
One image is taken using the natural light to capture visible damage.
The other image utilises ultra-violet light from inside a VISIA booth, which captures damage beneath the surface of the skin. A professional will guide you through this process.
With these images taken, a computer program is used to analyse the captured data and compare it to the characteristics of similar age, sex and ethnicity of the patient.
In addition, this technology will reveal how you may age with and without treatment. From here, a professional will be able to make recommendations to the patient of suitable skincare and clinical treatments that can be selected.
Using VISIA Skin Analysis in Brisbane allows patients to discover the extent of damage to their skin and what can be done to combat signs of aging. In particular, damage can be detected beneath the surface of the skin, which is not detected by visual examination. This gives a better picture of the condition of the skin.
In addition, this advanced technology can reveal how patients may age and what treatment can help. This provides personalised skincare treatment options and allows for an individualised treatment plan to be devised. You progress can also be monitored.
It is recommended to receive VISIA Skin Analysis every three to four months to reassess and maintain results and achieve skin goals.
