About Visia Skin Analysis

So many people are hiding behind filters when they can be 'no filter confident'. A Visia Skin scan is so interesting and a great way to see the condition of your skin before deciding which treatments and which treatments will be best for your skin. Your skin age can also be calculated by Visia based on eight different factors: spots or blemishes, pores, wrinkles, texture, porphyrins (the name of the bacteria associated with acne), UV spots (pigmentation under the skin), brown spots (visible pigmentation) and red areas.

If you are interested in any of our treatment plans, we offer Visia skin analysis for free so that you can check your progress.

The Problem

The Problem

As we age we develop pigmentation, wrinkles, enlarged pores and poor skin texture. When we look at our skin, we often aren’t sure what the specific problems are – we just know that we want to improve our complexion.

We also invest in different treatments and products without ever really knowing how effective they are. Visia removes any of the guesswork and reveals any damage and signs of ageing both on and beneath the surface of the skin, which may be missed by the human eye.

Visia calculates your ‘skin age’ to help you understand exactly how to improve your skin.

How It Works

The VISIA Complexion Analysis system is a key part of your consultation and undertaken prior to any facial skin treatment we perform in-clinic.

The state-of-the-art technology uses cross-polarized and UV lighting and works by taking images of your face from three precise angles to create a series of multi-spectral images. These images allow us to see beneath the surface of your skin. We can see beyond blemishes and assess if there is any deep underlying damage, such as ultraviolet damage or pigmentation, expressive and static lines and wrinkles, as well as any redness or build-up of bacteria (porphyrins) within the skin.

A comprehensive digital skin analysis means we are able to tailor your treatments and skincare products to your unique skin conditions, maximising both the repair and correction of your skin health. We can also use the images to accurately review how your treatment results are progressing over time.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the Visia skin scan take?
What are the eight factors that calculate your skin age?

The state-of-the-art technology uses cross-polarized and UV lighting and works by taking images of your face from three precise angles to create a series of multi-spectral images. These images allow us to see beneath the surface of your skin.

The Visia skin scan takes minutes to process these images and is a key part of our consultation process.

1. Spots or blemishes: These include brown or red skin marks such as freckles, acne and acne scars or hyper-pigmentation. The Visia machine is able to differentiate spots and highlight them in reports by the identification of certain colours and their contrast from the background skin tone. Spots can vary in size and shape but are generally circular.

2. Pores: Pores are the tiny circular surface openings in the skin. Pores appear darker than the surrounding skin due to the shadows that are created when light falls naturally on the face. This feature of pores, in addition to their circular shape, allows the Visia machine to identify pores separately to spots.

3. Wrinkles: Wrinkles are folds or creases in the skin, which increase in occurrence as a result of sun exposure. They are associated with decreasing skin elasticity and aging. Depending on your facial expressions, the identification of wrinkles on the Visia machine varies and is a useful tool to show where you are experiencing the most fine lines.

4. Texture: the texture or smoothness of skin is analysed by looking closely at the changes in colours and shadows in the surrounding skin. Peaks and valleys in the skin can be isolated and the machine will highlight these in yellow (peaks) and blue (valleys) to allow you to see the extent of different textures in the skin.

5. Porphyrins: Propionibacterium acnes is the name of the bacteria associated with acne. The bacteria is known to produce a substance called porphyrin. Porphyrins are bacterial excretions that can become lodged in pores and lead to acne. Porphyrins can be identified with UV light and can be helpful in deciding on the best treatments for acne.

6. UV Spots: UV spots occur when melanin collects beneath the skin surface due to sun damage. These spots are rarely visible to the naked eye but are a good indicator of skin damage and can become brown spots. The Visia machine is able to detect these areas of sun damage and enable us to treat them before they are on the surface of your skin.

7. Brown spots: Brown spots are areas of hyperpigmentation and are often the direct result of UV damage left untreated. Brown spots include freckles, moles, and melasma. Brown Spots occur from an excess of melanin. Melanin is produced by melanocytes, skin cells in the bottom layer of the skin and are therefore difficult to see without the technology of the Visia Skin Analysis.

8. Red Areas: These can be caused by conditions such as acne, rosacea and spider veins. Red areas are caused by blood vessels and haemoglobin (a component of blood) that circulates in the papillary dermis (a deeper layer of the skin). The Visia machine is able to detect these areas using RBX Technology.
