Beauty is only skin deep – but what if you could see what was occurring beneath the surface? The early signs of aging, including sunspots and age spots, fine lines and wrinkles in the formative stages, acne and bacteria, pore size, and skin texture are all visible with the use of VISIA Complexion Analysis. At Carmel Valley Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Karam uses this state-of-the-art technology to aid in developing a custom treatment plan for underlying skin conditions before they emerge and become visible.
How Does it Work?
VISIA Complexion Analysis is completed by placing a large helmet-like sensor over your face. The system takes a series of high-resolution images of your skin, so Dr. Karam can fully assess the condition of your facial skin. Using this analysis, Dr. Karam is able to make recommendations based on underlying skin conditions which may be invisible to the naked eye.
How Long Does the Process Take?
VISIA Complexion Analysis is performed by taking a series of snapshots of your skin. Once these images are processed, Dr. Karam can advise you of the most effective procedures to revitalize your complexion and maintain optimal skin health. The entire process takes approximately 20 minutes.
How Often Should I Schedule Assessments with VISIA Complexion Analysis?
It is recommended that you schedule VISIA Complexion Analysis two to three times each year in order to monitor the health of your skin, so you can keep it looking fresh and glowing for the long term.
How Should I Prepare for VISIA Skin Analysis?
Prior to your appointment at our San Diego clinic for VISIA Skin Complexion Analysis, do not apply any sunscreen or makeup, as these products affect the VISIA results, and provide a less complete picture of your skin quality and any developing flaws or conditions.
What Skin Conditions Can VISIA Detect?
VISIA Complexion Analysis is able to detect a range of skin conditions and how these may affect your skin appearance and quality if they are left untreated. These conditions include:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Dark spots
- Oversized pores
- Bacteria on the surface of the skin
Who is a Candidate for VISIA Complexion Analysis?
Men and women over the age of 18 who are interested in monitoring the health of their facial skin are excellent candidates for VISIA Complexion Analysis. This unique imaging system provides a complete analysis of visible skin conditions, including those developing beneath the surface of the skin that could lead to problems or damage in the future.
