Patients who are ready to take charge of their appearance are encouraged to work with a team that offers the latest technologies in diagnostics. At Aura Skin Spa in San Francisco, California, our doctor, Dr. Anthony Waechter, works directly with patients to help them determine the areas of the skin that need improvement and recommend the most appropriate treatment options. He does this with the use of the VISIA skin analysis system.
What is VISIA?
VISIA is a state-of-the-art solution to diagnosing skin concerns. This particular technology uses both UV lighting and cross-polarized lighting to both measure and record skin conditions with multi-spectral images. The device works by providing images of a patient’s face from three angles. It is incredibly helpful in revealing any skin damage or the signs of aging that might be below the skin and missed by a physical evaluation with a provider.
Why should I have VISIA skin analysis performed?
In most situations, Dr. Anthony Waechter of Aura Skin Spa starts with a series of images using the VISIA skin analysis system to get an idea of where the patient is at the beginning of their services. He may have patients who are undergoing treatments have imaging done regularly to monitor the improvements and allow for a final before and after photo for patients when they have undergoing routine services at Aura Skin Spa. This comprehensive digital skin analysis is helpful in creating a treatment plan for the skin that is tailored to one’s unique cosmetic needs.
What can the VISIA skin analysis system detect?
- Pore size
- Spots and lesions
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin texture
- UV spots/damage
- Red and inflamed areas
