VISIA® Complexion Analysis: The First Step of Your Medical Aesthetics Journey


If you’ve ever considered getting a medical aesthetics service, you may be wondering which treatment option is best for you. 

There’s no shortage of treatments to choose from, but if you’ve read any of our other blogs on BBL, Halo, or chemical peels, you know that the first step before receiving any treatment at Potomac Medical Aesthetics is having a consultation with one of the aestheticians on our team. 

Not only do they have the in-depth treatment knowledge and expertise to be able to recommend the best skincare treatments and products to fit your skin’s needs, but they are also equipped with the tools that allow them to take a deeper look at your skin to see what’s happening below the surface. 

One such tool is called VISIA® Complexion Analysis, and we know you’re going to love it, here’s why:

What is the VISIA® Complexion Analysis?

The VISIA Complexion Analysis system captures multiple images of the face in varying spectrums to provide an in-depth analysis of your facial characteristics that indicate your skin’s health and appearance. 

This multi-spectral and visual insight provides key indicators for the six primary characteristics that define your skin’s health including wrinkles, spots, pores, texture, bacteria presence (porphyrins) and UV spots (sun damage). 

Then, it’s this detailed insight that allows our team to create a treatment plan that is best suited to your skin’s history and needs to be able to heal, rejuvenate, or protect your face for the future.

How does it work?

First, using a technology called IntelliFlash®, which is cross-polarized and UV lighting, the VISIA records and measures surface and subsurface skin conditions. 

This then produces imaging called UV photography that provides the most complete data set available for sun damage assessment and analysis, including UV fluorescence imaging to reveal porphyrins (aka the presence of bacteria on the skin).

Then, the Canfield’s RBX® Technology separates the unique color signatures of red and brown skin components in the skin for unequaled visualization of conditions such as spider veins, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, and acne.

All of this is delivered with a very quick and easy process where we rotate the VISIA system around your face to capture the imaging from all angles, and present you with the clearest picture of what’s happening with your skin on a deep level. 

Why do you use this for consultations?

At Potomac Medical Aesthetics, our job isn’t to simply to perform a treatment and send you on your way, we’re here to educate you on the best options to fit your needs, and one of the best ways we can do that is to show you what’s actually happening in real-time with your skin. 

Not to mention, we don’t just use the VISIA for your first visit, we also use VISIA imaging for subsequent visits beyond your initial consultation to allow for a meaningful comparison of skin condition and appearance before and after treatments to show you your progress.

When can I see my results? 


The VISIA Complexion Analysis is a powerful tool that will allow you to see your skin’s current condition in mere minutes after your images are taken, which your consulting aesthetician will then review with you.
