The key to a great skin care program is understanding precisely what your skin needs to improve visible signs of aging, acne, scarring, and other conditions. The Visia® complexion analysis is an innovative tool that uses state-of-the-art technology to identify skin problems. Dr. Anna Le and the team at Annandale Ob-Gyn can even use Visia to detect conditions that aren’t yet visible, so they can be treated before they cause blemishes. If you’re ready to take the first step on your journey to great skin, call one of the offices in Annandale or Alexandria, Virginia, or make an appointment online.
What is Visia complexion analysis?
Visia is a revolutionary digital imaging system that uses high-resolution photography and patented photo analysis technology to deliver a comprehensive skin analysis with a high level of detail in a matter of minutes.
Visia helps the team at Annandale Ob-Gyn identify your individual skin needs and design a customized treatment plan to address all of your skin concerns.
Visia doesn’t just identify skin conditions on the surface of the skin. It also reveals problems in the deeper skin layers before they’re visible to the naked eye. You and your skin expert use your Visia images to track the ongoing progress of your treatment plan.
What happens during my Visia skin analysis?
Your skin analysis begins with a thorough skin cleansing to remove traces of makeup and dirt that could interfere with your images.
Next, you rest your chin on the chin rest while the Visia machine takes photographs of your face from many angles. Your digital skin analysis takes about 10-15 minutes to complete. Visia analyzes several aspects of skin health, including:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Red areas
- Skin texture
- UV spots (sun damage)
- Dark spots
- Pore size
- Bacterial excretions and oils called porphyrins that contribute to acne
When your complexion analysis is complete, your Annandale Ob-Gyn provider discusses your results with you, and you’ll work together to design a personalized treatment plan.
What will my skin treatment plan include?
Based on your Visia analysis and your personal lifestyle and goals, your provider will customize your treatment plan to offer smoother, firmer skin and improve acne, rosacea, spider veins, and other common skin conditions. Your plan may include:
- Daily at-home care regimen
- Regular facial treatments
- Anti-aging peels
- Laser skin treatments
- Acne and scar reduction treatments
- Lifestyle and nutritional changes
Your expert may also recommend advanced, medical grade skin care products to use at home for maximum anti-aging and skin health benefits.
