Emirates Medical Center (EMC) The Leading Skin and Laser Center has launched the VISIA™ Digital Skin Analysis recently. It is an exciting technological innovation that uses a multi-spectral imaging system to identify problem areas of your complexion, allowing for a customized skin treatment program that specifically targets these areas.

The Six Key Factors: Better Diagnosis Means Better Care
It is the first of its kind in Oman and it provides clinical measurement of surface and subsurface epidermal irregularities and pigment conditions. Furthermore, it captures a clear, multi-dimensional image of select facial areas, while examining the severity of various age-related conditions such as:

• Fine lines and wrinkles

• Hyper pigmentation (age/dark spots)

• Enlarged pores

• Skin tone evenness (color variation)

• Porphyrins (evidence of bacterial growth)

• Sun damage (UV spots)

The Skin Analysis is usually performed during the initial one-on-one Skin Evaluation, as the results of the analysis provide the framework for creating a personalized facial rejuvenation programs that are designed to obtain optimal improvement in the skin color and texture. In some cases, an additional analysis may be performed following a recommended treatment program.

Once the VISIA imaging session is complete, our Skin Specialist will provide a detailed complexion report that focuses on specific problem areas, compares the patients results with others same age, and included treatment recommendations specifically for the patients complexion.

Working of VISIA System
The VISIA Complexion Analysis System scans your skin and captures key visual information, using multi-spectral imaging and analysis, of six areas that affect your skin's health and appearance. We use the VISIA to measure your skin pigmentation, pore size, porphyrins (evidence of bacteria), UV spots, photo damage (typically from sun damage), texture and wrinkles.

With this quantitative assessment of your skin, we compare your skin's 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 your personal skin care regime 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.

Sessions with VISIA Digital Skin Analysis
A copy of your initial VISIA Digital Skin Analysis, which provides a baseline on the health of your skin, will be filed in your skincare chart. Depending on your skin condition and goals, Our Skin Specialist may choose to perform an additional analysis to measure the effectiveness of treatment and determine further treatment options.
There is no discomfort involved in the VISIA Digital Skin Analysis.

Safeness with VISIA Skin Analysis
VISIA™ generates quantitative values for skin features that until now could only be evaluated subjectively. A sensitive line, clear, easy to understand reports provide the tools needed for nurses and medical technician to identify precisely the right combination of rejuvenation treatments. VISIA™ improves participation and satisfaction with recommended skin care treatments and regimens for optimum complexion health.

Minimum age recommendation for a VISIA session
A VISIA Digital Skin Analysis can be done at any age. It is typically done when a skin health issue needs to be addressed with a facial rejuvenation program or a preventative program.
