What I saw in my skin after my Visia skin analysis.
I visited Skin Clinic Blyss back in April 2016, and before I had my Cosmedix blueberry smoothie peel, my dermal clinician Jody decided to do a Visia skin analysis on my skin to see what underlying skin issues I have that aren't always visible to the naked eye. The Visia skin analysis system is also great way to see progress of your skin concerns if your doing a package of treatments. Below I have attached some of my Visia photos that were taken on the day I visited Jody.
This photo highlights the areas of redness above and below the skins surface. Redness is my primary concern at the moment, and this will be the next skin concern I tackle with Jodie at Skin Clinic Blyss. The eye lids appear extremely red due to the skin being very thin and the visibility of blood vessels.
This photo lets you see brown spots. Brown spots are lesions on the skin such as hyper-pigmentation, freckles and melasma.
This photo has combined texture and large pores in one. The yellow signifies large, clogged pores and the purple signifies uneven texture on the skins surface.
This photo shows UV spots, spots occur when melanin coagulates below the skin surface as a result of sun damage. The white areas is where the sunscreen is still largely present. As you may see one side of the face is a little worse off than the other due to driving. The large black spot on my forehead is actually a birthmark.
This blue photo allows you to see excess oils on the surface, which can clog pores and lead to acne. You can also see the excess sunscreen that contains oil sitting on the surface around my lips. You may be able to see there is a lot of excess oils around my nose.
After my Visia, blueberry smoothie peel and LED light therapy. I have come out with smoother more radiant looking skin. Preparing myself for the next skin journey. Stay tuned.
