When it comes to providing effective skin health analysis and setting clear expectations for the results of dermatological treatment plans, U.S. Dermatology Partners relies on a range of state-of-the-art image capture techniques and imaging software. Most recently, our offices have invested in an innovative and versatile solution, the Visia Complexion Analysis system. This unique solution combines a state-of-the-art image capture unit with software that allows us to precisely analyze and diagnose skin conditions, plan for treatments, and show the potential impact of a variety of skincare options. One of the best features of this system is that we can show patients their skin with highlighted areas and zoomed-in views right away on our in-office computer monitors. It’s a truly unique technology that is highly beneficial for patient education and effective treatment planning.
It’s called the Visia Complexion Analysis System, but this technology actually does so much more than provide a thorough analysis of patients’ complexions. There are two parts to the Visia system. The first is an innovative capture module (think of this as the camera). As the patient remains stationary, the capture module will rotate smoothly, capturing numerous, consistent images quickly. The second part of the system is an updated software that automatically classifies specific aspects, including skin type, complexion, and advanced facial feature detection. Then, we easily highlight, zoom in, and enhance specific parts of the images to better express skin health concerns for patients. In addition to skin health assessment, the Visia Complexion Analysis system is also a great tool to compare the progress of treatment to ensure patients are achieving the desired results.
The Visia Complexion Analysis system is extremely simple to use. As you sit comfortably in a treatment room, the image capture module rotates around you. The unit captures numerous images that overlay to ensure clarity and accuracy of the final, viewable photos that will be analyzed by system’s software.
Prior to our team even looking at the images with clients, the system itself will analyze a number of variables, including providing us with a complete and accurate complexion and skin type analysis. Then, we can use the software to explore potential skin health concerns, areas of discoloration or damage, and to create a precise representation of the results associated with a number of treatments. From diagnosis and treatment planning to tracking the results of specific procedures or therapies, the Visia Complexion Analysis system is an invaluable new tool.
Many imaging systems check for one or even a handful of skin differences, but the innovative cross-polarized UV lighting measures both surface and subsurface skin conditions. The high-quality imaging separates red and brown skin pigmentation for complete clarity and accurate diagnosis. The imaging software can be used to take a closer look at a range of conditions including:
We can utilize the Visia Complexion Analysis system effectively for almost any patient. From treatment planning to tracking results, this innovative photo capture tool and imaging software can improve just about any trip to the dermatologist. It’s one of the best devices we have for helping to educate patients about areas of concern that they should monitor and to demonstrate the difference between typical skin changes and potential health issues. And, the Visia Complexion Analysis system is invaluable in helping clients understand the potential results of various treatments.
The Visia Complexion Analysis system is completely safe to use. The state-of-the-art image capture system does involve minimal exposure to low levels of UV lighting, but at the controlled levels, this should be completely safe. In most cases, the use of this imaging software can help us diagnose areas of concern in the earliest and most treatable stages, avoiding serious health risks.
We may utilize the images from the Visia Complexion Analysis system for a variety of reasons. Its versatility is one of the things that makes the system so beneficial for use in our dermatology practices. Some of the most common uses for the Visia Complexion Analysis system include:
