VISIA Skin Analysis: What Is It and How Does It Work?

Did you know the average wait time to see a dermatologist is 35 days?

Not only that, but the average cost of a dermatology visit is $221 (which is even more than it costs to visit a physician).

Fortunately, it’s possible for you to get a professional-grade evaluation of your skin’s health, without having to visit a dermatologist, and without having to pay hundreds of dollars.

That’s where VISIA skin analysis comes in.
In this short article, you’ll discover what VISIA skin analysis is, how it works, and how you can take advantage of its benefits yourself for healthy and vibrant skin.

Visia Skin Analysis

What Is VISIA Skin Analysis?

VISIA is a non-invasive imaging system that provides an easy-to-understand, objective evaluation of your skin on both the surface and subsurface levels.

This evaluation can be used to:

Develop your very own personalized skin care plan. Using the results of your analysis, skincare professionals can recommend specific products and treatments to improve your skin.

Monitor the effectiveness of your current skin care treatment. Using the VISIA skin analysis at regular intervals, you can easily check whether your current skin care regimen is working (or if you need to make any changes).

Help diagnose and treat skin conditions. VISIA can even help skin care professionals diagnose and recommend treatments for skin conditions (as well as spot concerns that may be going unnoticed).
Now that you know what VISIA skincare analysis is, and what it’s useful for, let’s dive into the different skin characteristics it helps you evaluate.

What Exactly Does VISIA Skin Analysis Evaluate?

Using cross-polarized UV lighting, the VISIA skin analysis system measures eight different surface and subsurface skin conditions, including:

Visia Spots ReportSpots

VISIA skin analysis identifies the presence and severity of hyperpigmentation (patches of skin that have become darker than the surrounding areas due to excess melanin production, mainly due to sun exposure.

Visia Wrinkles ReportWrinkles

Just like with hyperpigmentation, wrinkles—those pesky folds and creases in your skin—can also increase as a result of sun exposure. VISIA skin analysis evaluates the severity of these wrinkles (both fine lines and deep wrinkles).

Visia Texture ReportTexture

VISIA checks the overall texture of your skin and the variation of raised and depressed areas that affect your skin’s smoothness.

Visia Pores ReportPores

VISIA checks your pores (The circular surface openings of your skin’s sweat gland ducts) and any blockages within those pores. Enlarged pores can be a pain because they’re often darker than the surrounding skin.

Visia Uv Spots ReportUV Spots

Sun damage can also trigger UV spots on your skin. VISIA UV light reveals these spots as it’s absorbed by the epidermal melanin just below your skin’s surface.

Visia Brown Spots ReportBrown Spots

VISIA skin analysis also looks at the presence and severity of brown spots (pigmentation and discoloration) that occur beneath the skin’s surface.

Visia Red Areas ReportRed Areas

Red areas are yet another area that the VISIA skin analysis system can detect. Red areas may be related to a variety of skin conditions, including inflammation or spider veins (the result of damaged veins or burst blood vessels).

Visia Porphyrins ReportPorphyrins

Last but not least are porphyrins. Porphyrins are bacterial excretions that can become lodged in pores, which can often result in acne and other annoying skin problems.

By evaluating your skin with VISIA, you can work with a skincare professional to come up with better, personalized treatments for that healthy and radiant skin you’ve always dreamed of.
In addition, VISIA can help you identify an unnoticed skin condition early on, giving you the ability to fight or minimize its development.

Are you interested in using VISIA to improve your own skin?
It’s incredibly easy to do—taking only around 20 minutes—and is far less expensive than visiting a dermatologist.

How to Perform a VISIA Skin Analysis

If you’re willing to wait over a month to perform your VISIA skin analysis, you can check to see if your dermatologist offers it as a service.

While unlikely, you can also check in with your local salons and beauty stores to see whether they own a VISIA skin analysis system.
