Step aside Snow White: this new magic mirror is completely revolutionizing the way we see our skin. It’s 2017. We have autonomous cars, Harry Potter-esque live photos and virtual reality: why shouldn’t our skincare get an upgrade?
Visia is an imaging system that shows the details of our faces not visible to the naked eye. With a quick scan, the system can tell us in measurable terms how much sun damage we’re dealing with, what we could look like in seven years and how we compare to the other women of our same age and ethnicity.
What It Does
By focusing on eight areas of the skin, Visia creates a complete complexion profile. It utilizes RBX multispectral imaging, Intelliflash, cross-polarized and UV lighting to record and measure surface and subsurface skin conditions. Simply put, it can deeply analyze all the levels of the skin you can and can’t see.
Specifically, it measures spots, wrinkles, textures, pores, UV spots, brown spots, red areas and porphyrins. The Complexion Analysis shows exactly where wrinkle lines are located and how deep they are. It accurately maps the location of the greatest sun damage and indicates bacterial excretions that lead to acne breakouts. The system detects whether exfoliation may be needed and what is needed to treat redness.It gives you a complete analysis of what is going on with your skin, and the roadmap to fix it.
How It Works
The process starts by resting your chin on a small stand, and then it simply takes your picture (or glamour shot, as we like to think of it at Monarch). You’ll get the results as quick as you can send a text message. Eight different pictures will show the eight different problem areas on your skin. The results show what your skin is currently dealing with, as well as what it might face down the road. Through aging simulation, Visia can show clients the progression of age spots and wrinkles by five to seven years. Additionally, you’ll receive percentiles of how you rank in your age and ethnicity group.
What This Means for Patients
At Monarch, we now offer this new technology as a complimentary service with our consultations. The system allows our aestheticians to develop specifically targeted treatment programs for each individual. According the MedScape, a thorough face analysis should be done before recommending any treatment plan. These high-quality images allow for unique and strategic recommendations to patients. The skin analyzer helps patients to prevent further damage and to heal previous damage. It is also an incredible tool to track progress and outcomes of treatments over time. Visia helps you get to the root of what is going on with your skin, to help you receive the most targeted treatments possible.
Be sure to schedule a consultation with one of our aestheticians to receive your complimentary Visia face analysis. For more information, call us at (913) 317-9386.
