Visia® Skin Analysis

The Best in the Raleigh, Cary Area

With A Warm, Caring Staff and Stunningly Natural Results,
Our Approach to Surgery is Anything but Plastic

Skincare and medspa treatments are not one-size-fits-all. When choosing any treatment, it’s important to see a professional who can recommend the best options for you based on your unique skin type and condition. At CARE Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer Visia Skin Analysis to more accurately determine your skin type and the products or treatments that will suit you best. This system is also beneficial to track your progress throughout a long-term treatment plan, allowing you to see changes in your skin’s condition over time.

What is Visia Skin Analysis?

Visia Skin Analysis is a system which scans the skin to deeply and thoroughly analyze your skin type and condition. The system measures considerations such as:

  • Pigmentation
  • Pore size
  • UV spots
  • Sun damage
  • Texture
  • Wrinkles
  • Bacteria presence

After thoroughly analyzing your skin, Visa will make recommendations regarding skin care and professional treatments that will best suit your skin type and improve its health and appearance. The system analyzes the skin both at the surface and below for a thorough evaluation.

Why Choose Visia Skin Analysis In Cary, NC?

While an aesthetician or dermatologist can analyze your skin based on its appearance, the Visia Skin Analysis system is capable of more thoroughly examining the skin for both surface and subsurface conditions. The system allows for deeper examination and the most accurate assessment possible. This analysis can help you and your medspa team better understand the best possible treatment options for your unique skin.

How do you read visia results?

Nine different pictures are taken to capture all angles of your face and with different lighting conditions. VISIA will then score you on six qualities in comparison to thousands of other people of the same age and gender. These qualities include spots, wrinkles, texture, pores, UV spots, brown spots, red areas, and porphyrins. The program then calculates your TrueSkin age, which is your skin age rated against your real age.

How much does Visia skin analysis cost?

VISIA skin analysis is complimentary! It is included with all skincare consultations offered at CARE Plastic Surgery.

Does Visia skin analysis work?

VISIA accurately detects skin irregularities and imperfections, such as wrinkles, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation, uneven texture, sun and UV damage, and porphyrins/bacteria. It compares your skin to others in the same age group and of similar ethnicities. There have been several clinical methods used to validate VISIA results and analysis.

Is Visia skin analysis safe?

VISIA is completely safe to use! It involves minimal exposure to low levels of UV lighting, but it is used at a controlled and safe level.

How long does a skin analysis take?

It takes approximately 30 seconds to capture the VISIA imaging. Your provider will then discuss the results with you to interpret the data provided as well as recommend products and services specifically targeting your concerns. This can take approximately 10-15 minutes.

How does Visia Skin Analysis work and what technologies does it utilize for skin assessment?

VISIA takes into account your age, gender, race, and skin tone to determine how you compare to other individuals of the same demographic information. VISIA's multi-point positioning system and live image overlay make it easy to capture perfectly registered images to document progress over time. The rotating capture module easily captures left, right, and frontal facial views.

Can Visia accurately assess different skin types and conditions, including concerns like pigmentation and wrinkles?

Yes, VISIA can accurately assess all skin types and conditions. The Visia Analysis has six main categories— Wrinkles, Texture, Pores, UV Damage, Pigmentation, and Inflammation.

What specific information about my skin can I expect to learn from a Visia Skin Analysis session?

The Visia Skin Analysis is an incredible tool that gives us a detailed baseline image and scores that allow us to create the most appropriate and customized treatment plan for you and your skincare needs.

How often should I undergo Visia Skin Analysis to monitor changes in my skin over time?

We recommend doing a VISIA Skin Analysis before starting any therapeutic skin treatments and again after completing your series of therapeutic skin treatments in order to track progress. We also recommend doing a VISIA before and after starting new, medical-grade skincare products.

Are there any specific preparations or precautions I should take before undergoing a Visia Skin Analysis?

It is not required, but it is advised to have a clean face prior to your VISIA. This ensures the most accurate results.

How is Visia Skin Analysis Performed?

The Visia Skin Analysis procedure is simple and can be completed quickly in our Cary, NC office. To complete the process, you will sit in front of the machine and place your chin on the chinrest. The device will then capture images of the left, right, and frontal view of your face. These images are then quickly processed and displayed on the Visia Skin Analysis screen for you to view. The results of your analysis, along with recommended treatments and products, can then be explained.

After Your Visia Skin Analysis

After your Visia Skin Analysis, you will receive personalized recommendations through the system’s built-in list of products and treatments. You can then discuss your goals and choose the options you wish to include in your treatment plan. In addition, your results and recommendations can be printed for you to take home and consider, and you can log in to a ViewMyConsult account to review these recommendations and track treatment progress online.

Throughout the course of your treatment, you can also receive repeated Visia Skin Analysis to check in on the progress of your skin’s health and appearance. This helps to ensure that the selected treatments are effective, both visibly and below the skin’s surface. During a consultation, a long-term treatment plan including repeated analyses using Visia can be determined.
