What is a Skin Scanner Consultation?
Many skin conditions that surface in time originate from the deeper skin layers and are difficult to diagnose with the human eye. Our skin scanner consultation allows us to exposes those conditions by using a patented skin fluorescence and polarized light illumination technology. Using this unique technology, we can instantly reveal skin conditions, create awareness and propose your targeted treatment programs.
The daylight mode allows us to observe your skin under controlled daylight conditions.
This mode highlights the skin’s surface texture and roughness. Early signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles, as well as pore structure, bumpy skin, rough patches, acne and scar tissue become more apparent and help to understand the overall skin’s micro relief providing a good indicator of the quality and underlying structure of the skins’s tissue.
The cross-polarization mode provides us with an unparalleled view below the skin’s surface. At the touch of a button vascular or pigmentation disorders become visible to the eye.
Microvascular structures and inflammation in the dermis become clearly visible in this picture. Increased facial redness can be a significant cosmetic concern for many people, generally indicating skin (hyper) sensitivity and irritation. Two types of redness are usually distinguished: chronic persistent redness caused by an impairment of the skin barrier or a vascular condition, and temporary reactive redness.
The parallel-polarization technology enhances the visualization of the skin’s surface textures. In this mode, the skin’s microrelief, fine lines and wrinkle formations can be observed with high detail.
Skin tone inhomogeneity such as local pigmentation and skin discoloration (also known as hyperpigmentation) are highlighted and are better distinguishable from the topographical ageing signs like wrinkles or sagging skin in this picture.
Pigmentation may be caused by external factors such as unprotected sun exposure, but also to biological factors such as the hormone levels changes during puberty, pregnancy or as part of the normal ageing process.
The true UV mode allows us to obtain a clearer, more contrasting and detailed image of your skins condition.
In the simulated Wood’s light mode, the spectral composition mimics a classical Wood’s light. The patented illumination technology allows the modification of the Wood’s light spectrum and provides an extra diagnostic dimension.
