Visia Skin Analysis

Visia is an in-depth analysis of your individual facial features. It allows you to see the benefits of skin care programs planned for your special skin.

How is Visia Skin Analysis Performed?

VISIA scans your skin and looks at its strengths and weaknesses. VISIA scans measure your skin’s pigmentation, pore size, and porphyrins (evidence of bacteria found in pores). It also scans UV spots, sun damage, texture and wrinkles. With this assessment of your skin, we can compare your skin condition with your peer group. This helps us develop a more targeted treatment program for your specific needs while also tracking your progress and treatment results over time.

What to Expect During an Appointment?

VISIA provides a clear picture of your skin by capturing left, right and frontal views. Within minutes, you will be able to view your scans on the computer screen. Your initial analysis will be fundamental to your treatment progress. You’ll be able to see before and after photos and see for yourself how your skin treatment plan is helping you.

Everyone’s skin tells a unique story depending on their type, color, lifestyle, diet, medications, environmental exposure and much more. Originally designed as a research tool, the computer-controlled Visia analysis system uses multispectral imaging to scan the skin and capture key information of surface and subsurface facial skin conditions.

Advantages of Having a Visia Skin Analysis

  1. The whole process takes only a few minutes and is completely painless. Your face is placed in the imaging booth and a series of photos are taken. These stay in your file and become your basic ‘before’ photo.
  2. Using VISIA’s precision imaging, your skin clinician will be able to provide you with a much more precise plan.
  3. Hidden skin problems can be detected. This technology has the ability to identify specific skin conditions that are not noticeable on the surface but affect the overall appearance and health of your skin. This greatly influences which plan is given to you and allows you to get the results you want much faster.
  4. It will determine how effectively your skin care and treatments are progressing. With VISIA, your skin clinician monitors your skin’s progress in depth, allowing them to precisely track their journey with you and fine-tune as needed.

Common Skin Features Detected by Visia Skin Analysis

Spots are typically brown or red skin lesions, including freckles, acne scars, hyper-pigmentation, and vascular lesions. They usually have a different color and contrast from the background skin color. Pores are circular surface openings of sweat gland ducts. Due to shading, pores appear darker than the surrounding skin tone and are defined by their darker color and circular shape. The Visia system separates pores from stains by size.
