“Where do I start…?” is the question we often hear from clients, overwhelmed by the many options available to improve their skin, and ultimately their appearance. “Chemical peels, micro-needling, IPL, Fractional Skin Resurfacing, Botox, fillers, topicals…what does it all mean, what should I do, where do I start???” Relax, it’s going to be OK, we’ve got this!
To really see what’s going on with the health of your skin, we start with a skin care consultation using a VISIA Skin Analysis. It gives us, and you, a very clear picture of your skin, from the top surface down to 3mm. The damage that lies under the surface may not be a problem today, but it will be down the road. Here’s how the VISIA works. It scans your skin by taking a series of 3 quick pictures and digitally captures key visual information. It measures skin pigmentation, pore size, porphyrins (bacteria), UV spots, photodamage (typically from sun damage), texture (smoothness) and wrinkles. These categories are further analyzed as percentile scores. The higher the percentile, the better. It compares your skin’s features to others of the same sex, age, and skin type and will also provide you with your “TruSkin” age. For example, a 45-year-old woman with excellent skin may be evaluated with the skin of a 38-year-old, and vice versa.
After you have celebrated or cried, (we’ve seen both) an esthetician will customize a treatment plan that works for you, both short and long-term, depending on your lifestyle, budget, etc. You will be given a folder with your VISIA images and results, recommendations, costs and a treatment plan. We never want to sell you something you don’t fully understand.
The bottom line, knowledge is power! An educated client is always our goal. When you can see what’s going on with your skin and understand what it means, you can then address it, select a plan, and start seeing visible improvements. We are here to help you navigate the many treatments, without being pushy. Take the first step to healthier, more beautiful skin, call our office and schedule a Visa Skin Analysis!
