VISIA Complexion Analysis is skin imaging that we offer our patients for free as part of their consultation and treatment appointments. It allows us incomparable visualization of current and developing skin concerns, such as:
- UV Damage
- Brown Spots
- Pore Size
What to Expect
We ask that you don’t wear makeup in order to ensure we capture the most accurate photos. If you do come to your appointment with makeup on, cleansing wipes will be provided if needed. The nurse or esthetician helping you will also pull your hair back from your face using a soft headband, explain what to expect, and answer any questions you may have.
As with an eye exam, you will place your chin and forehead on the machine frame. The team member assisting you will tell you when the VISIA is about to take your images and you will then shut your eyes and relax. The machine will flash a few times and you will hear slight noises as the machine moves to capture all angles of your face. The entire imaging process takes only a few seconds.
Your MONA team member will briefly review and explain your results. If this is your first VISIA, they will point out characteristics such as sun damage, fine lines, and pore size that the imaging has detected. If you have had VISIA images in the past, they will pull up your earlier photos to compare progress.
It is important to remember that the VISIA is ongoing imaging that we provide our patients. We will retake VISIA photos before and after any treatments you receive from us.
Your VISIA results
VISIA can even create an aging simulation to help you understand the signs of aging we should be treating most actively.
How does the VISIA work?
The VISIA uses a process known as “multi-spectral imaging” meaning it captures image across multiple wavelengths of light to detect.
What skin concerns can the VISIA detect?
The VISIA can capture and allow us to analyze most skin concerns, including: Spots, Wrinkles, Texture, Pores, UV Spots, Brown Spots, Redness, Porphyrins, Acne, and Scarring.
How long does VISIA take?
Capturing your VISIA images only takes seconds. However, a member of our team can spend more time with you explaining your results and making recommendations based on your concerns.
How much does VISIA cost?
We provide VISIA imaging to our patients free of charge. We believe that knowledge is power, and you deserve to know everything about your skin. This allows us to make informed decisions about what treatments and skincare products are right for you.
How often should I take a VISIA?
If you would like to take VISIA pictures (either for the first time or as a review), please just let our team know when you are scheduling your appointment. For all cosmetic treatments, our team will take your VISIA pictures at each appointment.
