VISIA Complexion Analysis System

See Your Skin’s Health

Finding a practice that can provide an easy to understand, documented, objective evaluation of your skin is one of the most difficult tasks in selecting a practice for your skin care needs. Your vision for healthier, younger looking, more beautiful skin can be a reality with the help of VISIA.

The Center for Facial Plastic Surgery uses the VISIA Complexion Analysis System from Canfield Imaging Systems to provide you with easy to understand, printed reports that we use to develop your personal skin care regimen.

What makes VISIA so good for my skin analysis?

The computer-controlled VISIA ensures our ability to reproduce you facial photography between time points with built-in positioning aids and standardized lighting. VISIA allows us to record both standard and UV photography and measure surface and subsurface skin conditions. When needed, VISIA even has a tool that lets us zoom in and magnify image areas for closer examination and review with each patient. Once done, the reports are customized for each patient in an easy-to-read format that includes recommendations for your skin care.

VISIA’s Origin as a Research Tool

VISIA was originally developed as a research tool for skin care. Since then, VISIA Complexion Analysis has been enhanced for use worldwide in health and skin care by Canfield Imaging Systems, the worldwide leader in imaging products for healthcare and wellness.

How often do I need a VISIA Complexion Analysis?

Your first analysis report will become your baseline from which we can measure your progress. Depending on your skin condition and your goals, we will perform additional analyses as needed throughout your treatment program.

How does VISIA work?

The VISIA Complexion Analysis System scans your skin and, using multi-spectral imaging and analysis, captures key visual information of six areas that affect your skin’s health and appearance. We use the VISIA to measure your skin pigmentation, pore size, porphyrins (evidence of bacteria). UV spots, photo damage (typically from sun damage), texture and wrinkles. With this quantitative assessment of your skin, we compare your skin’s features to other individuals of the same sex, age and skin type to provide you with relative skin condition within your peer group. We then prepare your personal skin care regimen and rejuvenation program. As your treatments progress, the VISIA is used to track the changes in your skin and the effectiveness of your skin care program.

How long does VISIA take?

Your VISIA analysis will take just a few minutes and is a comfortable process. Once complete, the review of your results and consultation will typically take from thirty minutes to an hour, focusing on your specific problem areas and comparing your results with others of your same age, sex and skin type. Your analysis will also include personal treatment recommendations.
