What could a Visia skin check tell you about your skin?
We live in an ever-expanding universe of anti-ageing products and skin treatments. So it’s only fitting that one of the most exciting new developments in aesthetics comes courtesy of NASA. The Visia machine.
The Visia machine is like something from Star Trek. But friends, we have the technology – and it’s amazing – so we may as well use it!
What on Earth (no pun intended) is the Visia?
The Visia is basically a skin scanning machine. Albeit an incredible skin scanning machine that’s been designed and tested by the boffins at NASA.
It was developed 10 years ago to monitor the effects of radiation and zero gravity on astronauts’ skin.
It wasn’t long before scientists realised the incredible potential the machine had to shake up the world of aesthetics.
Knowledge is power…
Being able to see problems occurring deep in the skin before they get too established is a giant leap forward, offering us great potential for early intervention and treatment.
And as we all know, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.
Using different types of light exposure, the Visia machine takes digital and UV pictures of your face to reveal the condition of your skin below the surface.
It can be quite sobering to see your results – but only by seeing what’s really there can we properly start taking care of it.
What can a Visia skin analysis show you?
The skin scan will show up in detail the early signs of:
- Age spots
- UV spots from sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
As well as enlarged pores and acne-causing bacteria that aren’t detectable by visual examination alone.
But it doesn’t just show us what’s there. For it to be meaningful, we have to know what results are realistically achievable for your skin.
When you have a Visia skin check, the machine also compares your results with other women of the same age and ethnicity. If you’re in your 50s, for example, it’s fruitless comparing your skin with a teenager’s and aspiring to that.
So instead, the machine helps us focus on getting you great skin for your age.
Our nurses and aestheticians are able to assess your results, then advise products and treatments that will help you achieve the best skin possible for you. It’s like getting a diagnosis and treating it with a prescription.
Your practitioner will be able to draw up a treatment plan and home skincare routine with products that will really help make a difference.
And we can measure progress with the Visia too, so we can track the success of your treatment plan and you can see for yourself how your skin is improving over time.
