A New Way To Look At Your Skin
The road to beautiful, more youthful looking skin starts here. The VISIA Complexion Analysis is a revolutionary new metric to guide you in creating the ideal skin care plan for your face. VISIA takes high definition pictures of your skin and analyzes eight different skin qualities, including spots, wrinkles, pores and porphyrins, to reveal your TruSkin Age™. Utilizing the latest technology, 3-D imaging and UV photography, it also identifies subsurface skin issues that you may not otherwise be able to see. After following through with the needed Sublime treatments and products, you will be able to confirm your skin’s progress via the VISIA system as well with comparison imaging and aging simulations.

Pores – The circular surface openings of sweat gland ducts. Due to shadowing, pores appear darker than the surrounding skin tone and are identified by their darker color and circular shape. The VISIA system distinguishes pores from spots based on size; by definition, the area of a pore is much smaller than a spot.
UV Spots – Occur when melanin coagulates below the skin surface as a result of sun damage. UV spots are generally invisible under normal lighting conditions. The selective absorption of the UV light by the epidermal melanin enhances its display and detection by VISIA.
Porphyrins – Bacterial excretions that can become lodged in pores and lead to acne. Porphyrins fluoresce in UV light and exhibit circular white spot characteristics.
Red Areas – Represent a potential variety of conditions, such as acne, inflammation, Rosacea or spider veins. Blood vessels and hemoglobin contained in the papillary dermis, a sub-layer of skin, give these structures their red color, which is detected by RBX Technology in VISIA. Acne spots and inflammation vary in size but are generally round in shape. Rosacea is usually larger and diffuse compared to acne, and spider veins usually are short, thin and can be interconnected in a dense network.
Texture – Primarily an analysis of skin smoothness. Texture measures skin color and smoothness by identifying gradations in color from the surrounding skin tone, as well as peaks (shown in yellow) and valleys (shown in blue) on the skin surface that indicate variations in the surface texture
