Visia is an innovative screening device that is an important tool that we use at Belladerm Medspa to guide us in making decisions about procedures and products. This device shows us visually just how damaging the exposure to the sun has been on your skin. We offer this as part of our consultation as a tool to pinpoint areas that we may want to focus on and why.
How does Visia work?
Visia takes only a few minutes and is completely pain-free.  No creams, lotions, or solutions are required.  Using cutting-edge technology, a computerized camera will obtain a clear ‘picture’ of the skin’s health. A Visia analysis captures multi-spectral photos of the face, examining the complexion for wrinkles, spots, pores, evenness (colour variation in the skin tone), porphyrins (evidence of bacteria in pores), and UV spots (characteristic of photo-damage, typically from over exposure to the sun) as well as grading skin features relative to other users of the same sex, age and skin type.  Once these images are captured, we will then review and discuss the images and the analyzed summary of your skin. Based on what we see, we can recommend a personalized skincare regime to improve your complexion including specific product recommendations or procedures.
Why do we love Visia?
The information Visia gives us is vital to help us develop more targeted treatment programs, track progress over time, and stay connected with patients as they consider the possibilities of aesthetic procedures. We understand that it can be hard to decide which treatments will benefit you personally the most. We love Visia because it is one way that we can hone in on the most important products/procedures that will help YOU achieve the look you desire and take better care of your skin, also.
