Now you can see beneath the surface of your skin with a VISIA™ complexion analysis. Contour Dermatology has purchased this remarkable digital technology to visibly show patients their level of skin health and to aid in selecting the most appropriate treatments for optimal results. Originally developed by Proctor and Gamble as a skin care research tool, the VISIA is now available to medical professionals.
VISIA generates quantitative values for skin features that previously could only be evaluated subjectively. A multi-spectral imaging system captures key visual information for six areas affecting complexion health and appearance:
· UV Spots
· Pore Size
· Porphyrins (bacterial count)
Patients receive easy to understand reports and even a comparison of their skin evaluation to 100 other people in their same skin type and age, indicating which percentile they are in by category. (The higher the score, the better the condition of your skin.) This analysis will provide you with the comprehensive data needed to develop your specific treatment plan.
“The depth that we’re able to see with this equipment is incredible,” said Dr. Timothy Jochen. “We are pleased to offer this as part of our cosmetic consultations. It’s a great visual aid to show patients where they have areas that need attention and it helps us better tailor treatment options to their specific needs.”
This relatively new technology has been featured in all the top beauty and health magazines as well as on national television – now it’s available at Contour Dermatology.
