Visia Complexion Analysis
Every face tells a story. Our facial skin can reveal aspects of our general health, our age and our background. Simultaneously delicate and resilient, our facial skin bares a map of our life experience. As we age and our skin endures damaging environmental elements like the sun exposure and air pollution along with other distressful factors, our skin's quality and health changes. Some skin damage is clearly visible to the naked eye, but much of the deep tissue damage that causes deterioration cannot be seen without the help of VISIA Digital Complexion Analysis.
At California Cosmetic Laser Clinic each skincare client is provided with an initial Visia Complexion Analysis. Visia’s advanced technology provides photographs, both regular and UV, for skin evaluation. Visia-generated reports evaluate skin features for our medical staff to assist you with creating a customized treatment plan.
Six key areas of the complexion are evaluated which include pigmentation, pores, wrinkles, evenness, bacteria, and UV spots/ photodamage. Graphs are created which compare clients to others of the same age and skin type. The Visia photography and graphs provide us with progress reports as you move through treatment sessions.
VISIA™ Digital Skin Analysis is an exciting technological innovation that uses a multi-spectral imaging system to identify problem areas of your complexion, allowing for a customized skin treatment program that specifically targets these areas.
The VISIA Digital Skin Analysis is the first diagnostic tool to provide clinical measurement of surface and subsurface epidermal irregularities and pigment conditions. VISIA’s photographic technology captures a clear, multi-dimensional image of select facial areas, while examining the severity of various age-related conditions such as:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Hyperpigmentation (age/dark spots)
Skin tone evenness (color variation)
Porphyrins (evidence of bacterial growth)
Sun damage (UV spots)
Your individualized report will provide insight and treatment options as recommended by our skin care professionals.
At California Cosmetics Laser Clinic, we recommend that a Digital Skin Analysis be performed during your initial one-on-one Skin Evaluation, as the results of the analysis provide the framework for creating a personalized facial rejuvenation programs that are designed to obtain optimal improvement in your skin color and texture. In some cases, an additional analysis may be performed following a recommended treatment program.
Once your VISIA imaging session is complete, our skin care specialist will provide you a detailed complexion report that focuses on specific problem areas, compares your results with others your age, and included treatment recommendations specifically for your complexion.
