VISIA Complexion Analysis
At Serrão Rejuvenation Center, we provide a complexion analysis with one of the most advanced imaging systems in the world. Visia generates quantitative information for skin features that until now could only be evaluated subjectively. We can quickly generate customized reports with recommendations for treatment and ongoing skincare. The graphs clearly indicate areas for improvement as well as compare clients to other people of their same age and skin type. The Visia system also tracks ongoing progress as you complete your series of treatments at Serrão Rejuvenation Center so you can see for yourself how beneficial our treatments are!
Protect Your Skin with VISIA® Complexion Analysis In the quest for a more radiant complexion, knowledge is an invaluable tool. Canfield Scientific has created the VISIA® Complexion Analysis system to provide us with the deepest possible understanding of your skin and the ability to show you just how it will respond to a full range of treatments.
The Six Key Features: Better Diagnosis Means Better Care Among the many variables that contribute to the total condition of your complexion, six are critical to choosing the right skin care treatments. VISIA® Complexion Analysis evaluates these features:
- pore size
- skin tone variations
- bacterial content
- UV spots that indicate sun damage
VISIA® starts with a digital photograph of your face which Serrão Rejuvenation Center can use to document the condition of your skin and evaluate the effectiveness of the treatment options available to you. The system generates comprehensive reports to add to your record and with which to track your progress to a healthier, more youthful looking complexion.
What are the definitions of the various skin features and how are the features detected?
Spots Spots are typically brown or red skin lesions including freckles, acne scars, hyper-pigmentation and vascular lesions. Spots are distinguishable by their distinct color and contrast from the background skin tone. Spots vary in size and generally have a circular shape.
Pores Pores are the circular surface openings of sweat gland ducts. Due to shadowing, pores appear darker than the surrounding skin tone and are identified by their darker color and circular shape. The VISIA system distinguishes pores from spots based on size; by definition, the area of a pore is much smaller than a spot.
Wrinkles Wrinkles are furrows, folds or creases in the skin, which increase in occurrence as a result of sun exposure, and are associated with decreasing skin elasticity. This skin feature has the greatest variability from image to image as it is highly dependent upon the facial expression of the client. Wrinkles are identified by their characteristic long, narrow shape.
Evenness Evenness is primarily an analysis of skin texture. Evenness measures skin color and texture by identifying gradations in color from the surrounding skin tone, as well as peaks (shown in yellow) and valleys (shown in blue) on the skin surface that indicate variations in the surface texture.
Porphyrins Porphyrins are bacterial excretions that can become lodged in pores and lead to acne. Porphyrins fluoresce in UV light and exhibit circular white spot characteristics.
UV Spots UV spots occur when melanin coagulates below the skin surface as a result of sun damage. UV spots are generally invisible under normal lighting conditions. The selective absorption of the UV light by the epidermal melanin enhances its display and detection by VISIA.
