Visia Complexion Analysis System from U.S. Dermatology Partners

Visia Complexion Analysis

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.

What is the Visia Complexion Analysis System?

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.

How Does Visia Complexion Analysis Work?

How is Visia Complexion Analysis Performed?

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:

  • Spots or discoloration of skin typically red or brown in coloring that may be a natural part of the complexion or indicative of health concerns
  • Wrinkles and fine lines, viewing these areas in detail is especially important for demonstrating progress to patients who undergo treatments like injectables or fillers to reduce their appearance
  • Raised and depressed areas (texture) of skin that can be indicative of overall skin condition and health
  • The appearance of pores and sweat glands are monitored for skin health in those with acne, boils, and a number of other skin concerns
  • UV spots caused by the absorption of UV light by the melanin just below the skin’s surface, which is a natural process that can also be indicative of a risk for skin cancer
  • Porphyrins or bacterial skin secretions that can be lodged in pores, leading to inflammation, infection, and a number of other issues

Who is a Good Candidate for Visia Complexion Analysis?

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.

Are there Side Effects to Visia Complexion Analysis?

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.

How are My Visia Complexion Analysis Results Used?

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:

  • Analyze complexion and skin type, understand overall skin health, and diagnose any existing skin conditions or areas of concern
  • Provide accurate guidance for preventive skincare based on the patient’s unique skin type and complexion
  • Educate patients about their skin health and help them monitor areas of concern more effectively
  • Track progress of treatment overtime by easily comparing current and past images after a procedure or over the course of therapy for skin conditions
  • Easily communicate treatment plans between physicians through digital images that can be stored and transferred online
  • See three-dimensional images of skin defects and irregularities to ensure we understand the size, shape, and condition of the skin prior to treatment planning
  • Allow patients to take images home with them to compare the results of different treatment options, share ideas with family and friends for feedback, and take the time to ensure they feel confident before moving forward with a specific treatment plan
