Nose skin imaging and evaluation
Managing the skin is central in rhinoplasty.
Thick skin can be a challenge and may not allow for adequate nasal contouring and definition.
Each irregularity may be visible in patients after rhinoplasty with thin skin.
Acne-prone and sensitive skin, such as in rosacea, are inflammatory skin conditions that may exacerbate swelling. It is good to manage and try to stabilize them before and after surgery.
We evaluate the skin of all of our patients at the consultation.
Some will benefit from VISIA Complexion Analysis, which is a computerized system which allows us to better detect and analyse surface and subsurface skin conditions (fine lines and wrinkles, spots, enlarged pores, skin tone, bacterial growth, sun damage, vascular conditions and redness, hyperpigmentation).
What exactly is a VISIA Skin Analysis
We are pleased to offer the VISIA Complexion Analysis, a computerized system which allows us to better detect and analyse surface and subsurface skin conditions. It was originally developed as a research tool for skin care.
VISIA is able examine the severity of various age-related conditions, such as:
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles
- Age Spots or Dark Spots
- Enlarged Pores
- Skin Tone
- Bacterial Growth
- Sun Damage
- Vascular conditions and hyperpigmentation are seen below the skin surface.
WHAT MAKES VISIA SO GOOD FOR MY SKIN ANALYSIS?
The computer-controlled VISIA ensures our ability to reproduce you facial photography between before and after a treatment.
When needed, VISIA even has a tool that lets us zoom in and magnify image areas for closer examination and review with each patient.
With this quantitative assessment of your skin, we compare your skin’s features to other individuals of the same sex, age and skin type to provide you with relative skin condition within your peer group. We then prepare your personal skin care regimen and rejuvenation program. As your treatments progress, the VISIA is used to track the changes in your skin and the effectiveness of your skin care program.
HOW OFTEN DO I NEED A VISIA COMPLEXION ANALYSIS?
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 analyses as needed throughout your treatment program.
HOW LONG DOES VISIA TAKE?
Your VISIA analysis will take just a few minutes and is a comfortable process. Once complete, the review of your results and consultation will typically take from thirty minutes to an hour, 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 personal treatment recommendations.
