What is the Visia Skin Analysis Machine?

With so many skincare ranges on the market and all claiming to provide a host of benefits for your skin, how do you know which one to choose? With our Neostrata skincare range we don’t just claim the benefits; we prove it. Enter our new Visia Skin Analysis Machine.



We recently introduced the Visia Skin Analysis system. It’s a machine which will take photographs of your skin and it will then analyse it under a UV light. What that will enable us to do is to see the skin on a cellular level, on a much deeper level and analyse different skin factors for example; fine lines, wrinkles, texture, bacteria and from there we can put together a treatment plan and programme for you that we think will be suitable. The Visia Skin Analysis system can take anywhere between 10 minutes up to 1 hour. We tend to do a Visia in every skin consultation to give the patient a really nice understanding of their skin. What they’ll also receive is a personalised report with all of their results on there and then we can do another Visia a few months down the line after they’ve had their treatments and compare the two.

What is the Visia Skin Analysis Machine?

The Visia Skin Analysis Machine uses advanced UV and digital technology to take close-up photos of your skin. This helps your practitioner recommend the most suitable products and treatment plans specifically designed for your skin. Initially created by Nasa to look at the effects of zero-gravity on astronauts’ skin, this hi-tech device provides you with an in-depth skin analysis which cannot be achieved by looking at your skin directly.

The analysis can show up a range of different features:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • UV spots from sun damage
  • Large pores
  • Bacteria on the skin
  • Rosacea

This factual approach to skincare is one that we  strongly encourage. We take the approach that you can decide for yourself whether a skincare range is working for you. We are not afraid to put the products we use to the test and the Visia machine allows us to do just that.

What are the benefits of having a Visia skin analysis?

  • Highlights problem areas underneath the skin’s surface that cannot be seen by the human eye. For example, it may show up some sun damage which could later lead to fine lines if left untreated.
  • Create your own portfolio of before and after photographs to clearly see the results of products you have been using.
  • You receive a print out or email with your bespoke treatment and skincare plan that is customised to your skin type.

If you would like to book in for a skin consultation and Visia skin analysis please give the team a call on 01844 211777 or fill in a contact form and we will be in touch shortly.

Please note that the Visia machine is currently only available at The Paddocks Clinic, Buckinghamshire.
