VISIA™ Complexion Analysis - See Your Skin's Health
Our practice uses the VISIA™ Complexion Analysis System from Canfield Imaging Systems to provide you with easy to understand, printed reports that we use to develop your personal skin care regime. The computer-controlled VISIA™ ensures our ability to reproduce your facial photography between time points and allows us to record standard, cross polarized and UV photography. We can also measure surface and subsurface skin conditions. When needed, VISIA™ also has a tool that lets us zoom in and magnify image areas for closer examination and review with each patient. Once done, the reports are customized for each patient in an easy to read format which includes recommendations for your skin care.
How Often Do I Need a VISIA Complexion Analysis?
Your first report will become your baseline from which we can measure your progress. Depending on your skin condition and your goals, we will perform additional analysis as needed throughout your treatment program.
How Does VISIA Work?
The VISIA™ Complexion Analysis System scans your skin and captures key visual information, using multi-spectral imaging and analysis, of eight areas that affect your skin's health and appearance. We use the VISIA™ to measure your skin pigmentation, pore size, porphyrins (evidence of bacteria), UV spots, photo damage, texture and wrinkles. With this quantitative assessment of your skin, we compare your skin's features to other individuals of the same sex, age and skin type and provide you with your relative skin condition within your peer group. We then prepare your personal skin care regime and rejuvenation program.
As your treatments progress, the VISIA™ is used to track the changes in your skin and the effectiveness of your skin care program.
