Digital Skin Analysis
Digital Skin Analysis is a specialised Computerised Photo Imaging tool used to identify any possible skin damage and suggest the best way forward in terms of treatment and homecare. The tool takes several photographs of your face which will highlight any issues or concerns.
We look at 6 key areas of your complexion to determine which areas could do with some help, allowing us to recommend treatments that will aid skin recovery:
- UV Spots: Usually brown or red skin marks, including freckles, acne scars, hyper-pigmentation and vascular lesions. Varying in shape and size, they are distinguishable by the distinct colour and contrast from the background skin tone. Forms when melanin coagulates below the skin’s surface as a result of sun damage. Though invisible under normal lighting conditions, the selective absorption of the UV light by the epidermal melanin enhances its display and detection by imaging tool.
- Pores: Circular surface openings of sweat gland ducts. Due to shadowing, enlarged pores appear darker than the surrounding skin tone and are identified by their darker colour and circular shape. They are caused by sun damage, genetics and lifestyle.
- Wrinkles: Furrows, creases or folds in the skin that result due to ageing, sun exposure and excessive smoking. This all breaks down the collagen and elastin fibres in the skin, making the skin less flexible.
- Texture: Raised and depressed areas that indicate variations on the skin’s surface that is affecting skin smoothness.
- 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: This could indicate a range of conditions, including acne, inflammation, rosacea or spider veins. Acne spots and inflammation vary in size but are typically round in shape, whereas rosacea is larger and more diffuse. Spider veins are short, thin and can be interconnected in a dense network of veins. Blood vessels and haemoglobin contained in the papillary dermis, a sub-layer of skin, give these structures their red colour.
