plan that will generate dramatic and long-lasting results. The skin is complex, and often requires
an experienced skin practitioner to make precise recommendations that address specific
concerns. And the best tool for doing exactly this is clinical skin imaging.
What Is Skin Imaging Technology?
There are several skin imaging technologies on the market, including Visia, SkinScope, Observ,
and MoreMe just to name a few. These devices, while all utilising slightly different technology,
all share one common goal - to capture detailed analysis of the skin and its many layers. There
is only so much that skin practitioners can see with the naked eye. Using specialised skin
photographing technology enables us to see what is happening both on and below the skin’s
surface, revealing a much clearer picture of your skin, its issues, and their causes.
Why Is Skin Analysis Important?
Armed with this detailed information, we are able to diagnose skin disorders and recommend
skincare products and clinical treatments with greater precision. Skin scanners make your skin
consultation and analysis a lot more tailored to you as an individual, and significantly increases
your chances of our recommendations providing you with amazing results. This also allows us
to track your progress over time, and show you exactly how much of a difference your skincare
and treatment regime is making. This accountability is an important part of our clinical practice,
demonstrating that our skin solutions are truly working.
Clinical Imaging at +Aesthetics
Our team of therapists and dermal clinicians use Visia technology, which photographs the skin
with several different light filters. Visia provides us with a huge amount of information about your
skin, including redness, surface and deep wrinkles, microbial activity, sun damage, dehydration,
and pigmentation that is usually not visible to the naked eye. Using our Visia system, we assess
the biological age and ‘true age’ of your skin before commencing any treatment plan, creating a
baseline which we can compare your skin to periodically. We love tracking this information
throughout and after a course of skin treatments, and seeing the joy on our patients’ faces as
we place their images side by side to analyse the often-dramatic changes. In addition to our
Visia, we also use Vectra at +Aesthetics, a 3D imaging system that allows us to see how facial
shape, volume, and structure change over time. This can be especially important for treatments
like dermal filler, or those designed to revolume the face by adding collagen.
As an evidence-based practice, skin scanning systems like Visia and Vectra are a key part of
your skin health plan at +Aesthetics. We offer only the highest quality products and treatments
that have been proven in their results - this is our way of ensuring you are confident in our
approach to your skin. We also understand how difficult it can be to see results over time, since
skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing doesn’t happen overnight! With Visia, you are able to see your
results for yourself, with your own eyes. Come and speak to us about a personalised Visia skin
analysis next time you visit the clinic. Continue reading
