VISIA® Skin Test
What is VISIA® Complexion Analysis?
The VISIA® is a computer-controlled facial photography and mapping system that uses standard, cross polarized and UV photography to create a customized, digital skin analysis. We are able to use these photos to magnify images and see skin imperfections that may be missed in the aesthetician’s visual analysis. Your aesthetician will then formulate skin care recommendations based upon your individual skin care goals, along with the VISIA® results and her visual analysis.
How Does VISIA® Complexion Analysis 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 the health and appearance of the skin. The VISIA measures skin pigmentation, pore size, porphyrins (bacteria in the skin), UV spots, sun damage, texture and wrinkles. With this assessment, the VISIA® compares your skin to individuals your sex, age and skin type to provide you with your relative skin condition within your peer group.
The actual VISIA® Complexion Analysis itself only takes about 10 minutes. Once the machine has given us your results, we use the next 30-45 minutes to review your results and go over home care and in office treatment recommendations.
Is VISIA® Complexion Analysis Required?
We of course do not require you to have the VISIA® photos taken however, it is an excellent tool for our aestheticians to be able to use. This gives them the ability to track your progress more accurately and see minor and major changes in the skin. Your original VISIA® is used as a baseline photograph to compare future VISIA’s to once we start to see change in your complexion.
