Finding a practice that can provide an easy-to-understand, documented, objective evaluation of your skin; is one of the most difficult tasks in selecting a practice for your skin care needs.
Now, your vision of a healthier looking, more beautiful skin can be a reality with the help of VISIA.
Skinlogic uses the VISIA Complexion Analysis machine to provide you with easy-to-understand, printed reports that we use to develop your personal skin care regime.
The computer controlled VISIA ensures our ability to reproduce your facial photograph between time points with built in position aids and standardized lighting. VISIA allows us to record standard, cross polarized and UK photography and measure surface and subsurface skin conditions. When needed, VISIA even has a tool that lets us zoom in and magnify image areas for closer examination and review with each patient.
After your skin examination and analysis of your personalized VISIA complexion analysis report, our skin therapists will recommend the best skin care regimen and treatment program to address your specific skin care concerns.
Your first analysis report will become your baseline from which we can measure your progress. Depending on your skin condition and your goals, we will perform additional analysis as needed throughout your treatment program.

What factors influence the result of the VISIA skin analysis?
A number of factors contribute to the actual scores generated by the VISIA complexion analysis algorithms, including the condition of the skin (cleaned vs. fresh make-up, old make-up, time-of-day), head registration within the booth, facial expression (particularly for wrinkles), stray hair, glare areas resulting from oily skin, etc.
If possible, come to your appointment with a freshly cleansed face. Alternatively, we will provide you with cleansing products to use prior to your appointment.
How does the VISIA work?
The VISIA system scans your skin and captures key visual information, using multi spectral imaging and analysis, of eight areas that affect your skins health and appearance. We use the VISIA to measure your skin pigmentation, pore size, porphyrins (evidence of bacteria), UV spots, photo damage (typically form sun damage), texture and wrinkles. With this quantitative assessment of your skin, we compare our skins features to other individuals of the same sex, age and skin type and provide you with your relative skin condition within your peer group. We then prepare or personal skin care regime and rejuvenation program.
How long does the VISIA skin analysis take?
Your VISIA analysis will take just a few minutes. Once complete, the review of your results and consultation will typically take about 30 minutes, focusing on your specific problem areas and comparing your results with others of your same age, sex and skin type. Your analysis will also include your personal treatment and products recommendations.
You are under no obligation to book a treatment with us or buy prescribed products after your consultation, however, should you do wish to book a treatment this can be done for you after your consultation or at a later date via phone or e-mail. Any products purchases can be made and your practitioner will thoroughly explain usages thereof.
At Skinlogic we can assure you that we value your health and wellbeing. You will only be seen and treated by qualified and experienced professionals.
