The skin is the largest organ of the body and is responsible for protecting us from the environment, and is also a highly effective eliminator of toxins. It is important that we take good care of our skin, not only for cosmetic reasons, but as a guard for ourselves against our harsh environment.



VISIA Skin Analysis


VISIA® skin and complexion analysis uses multi-spectral imaging to reveal damage and signs of ageing on and beneath the surface of the skin that is not visible to the human eye. VISIA®’s computer imaging enables Mackay Skin Clinic’s practitioners to evaluate the health and appearance of your skin based on six criteria that affect your complexion: wrinkles, spots, pores, evenness (skin tone colour variation), porphyrins (evidence of bacteria in your pores), and UV spots caused by overexposure to the sun.

VISIA® also compares your skin to that of others of the same age and ethnicity to provide additional information about your skin and complexion results. VISIA® starts with a digital photograph of your face which your practitioner can use to document the condition of your skin and evaluate the effectiveness of the treatment options available to you. The system generates comprehensive reports to add to your record and with which to track your progress to a healthier, more youthful looking complexion.

During your personalised consultation, your face is placed in a special photographic booth to eliminate ambient light and the VISIA® skin analyser takes a number of detailed images of your face from both sides and full frontal under varying light conditions. The computer is able to analyse to a depth of two millimetres under your skin and reveal conditions completely invisible to the naked eye. Because all ambient light is eliminated and the same light parameters are used, the programme and results can be stored on our database and repeated exactly, weeks or months later to check the efficacy of the treatment programme undertaken. The process is completely pain-free and non-invasive. Once your digital skin analysis is completed, your results are displayed on the computer monitor and our practitioner will discuss the findings with you, and together you can determine an effective rejuvenation regime for your specific needs. This can include a number of treatments such as skin peels, microdermabrasion, IPL treatment or anti-ageing injections, such as muscle relaxants and dermal fillers.

For a medical analysis we recommend you attend a consultation with Dr John Goldston to ensure you receive the best and most appropriate medical opinion and advice relevant to your skin's condition.
