How does Visia Work?

VISIA logo gold in black oval RGB

The Visia Complextion Analysis System scans your skin and captures key visual information using mutli-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 (typically from sun damage), texture and wrinkles. With this quantitative assessment of your skin, we can compare your skin’s features to other individuals of the same sex, age, and skin type and provide 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.

How long does the VISIA take?

Your VISIA analysis will take just a few minutes. Once complete, the review of your results and consultation will typically take from thirty minutes to an hour, focusing on your specific problem areas and comparing results with other of your same age, sex and skin type. Your analysis will also include your personal treatment recommendations.

Are there any other considerations?

The actual VISIA imaging of your surface and subsurface skin features takes only a few minutes and is a comfortable process at all times.

What makes VISIA so good for my skin analysis?

The computer-controlled VISIA ensures our ability to reproduce your facial photography between time points with built-in positioning aids and standardized lighting. VISIA allows us to record standard, cross polarized and UV surface and subsurface skin conditions. When needed, VISIA even 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 skin care.
