Ask the Experts: Canfield VISIA Complexion Analysis


Ask the Experts: Canfield VISIA Complexion Analysis

To know exactly what kind of treatment your skin needs, it must be analyzed first. An accurate analysis is the first step in finding a targeted solution for specific skin problems.

That’s what Canfield VISIA does. It’s a complexion analysis system that uses a combination of UV lighting, IntellifFlash®, and cross-polarization to provide comprehensive information about an individual’s skin.

After the skin assessment, the result will be used to design a more targeted recommendation for treatment. Canfield VISIA can also track how your skin is responding to treatment and if it’s showing the desired effects at the cellular level.

Key Features of Canfield VISIA Complexion Analysis

Repeatable Facial Imaging

Canfield VISIA has a live image overlay and multi-point positioning system that captures and analyzes right, left, and frontal views. 

Quantitative Analysis

With the use of the world’s largest skin feature database, your skin can be graded and compared to other people of the same age and skin type. 

Multi-Spectral Lighting

To record and measure the surface and subsurface condition of the skin, Canfield VISIA uses IntelliFlash®, UV photography, and Canfield’s RBX® Technology.

Visual Assessment

Any combination of features, views, or time points of images can be compared, zoomed, and panned for easy and meaningful comparisons. This includes graphs and numerical data.

Clear Communication

Canfield VISIA has a built-in library of skincare products and treatments. Easy-to-understand personalized reports can also be recorded and printed for educational purposes and treatment planning.

8 Common Skin Concerns That Canfield VISIA Complexion Analysis Can Detect

    1. 1. Wrinkles

      We usually see creases and lines on our faces when they’re deep enough to be visible. But Canfield VISIA Complexion Analysis has a wrinkle recognition tool (WRT-VBIG) that can find even the most inconspicuous fine lines and creases. It shows exactly where they are located and how deep they are.

      Deeper creases are shown in dark green, while fine lines are in a light green hue.

    2. 2. Skin Texture

      Does your skin need exfoliation or not? Canfield VISIA Complexion Analysis can accurately evaluate the skin to see if exfoliation treatment is needed.

      Raised areas which are typically caused by pimples and dead skin cells are shown in yellow. Indentations are typically caused by open pores and creases, which Canfield VISIA Complexion Analysis shows in blue.

      These raised and depressed areas on the skin’s surface affect its overall texture.

    3. 3. Porphyrins

      Porphyrins are bacterial secretions that can potentially block your pores and lead to acne breakouts and inflammation.

      One of the many benefits of Canfield VISIA Complexion Analysis is that it doesn’t just assess your current skin condition, but it can also forecast future skin issues. By accurately detecting these problematic areas, spot treatment and an appropriate skincare regimen can be recommended.

    4. 4. Sunspots

      Do you know sunspots are often undetectable under normal lighting? Canfield VISIA Complexion Analysis has the ability to accurately map UV spots or accumulated melanin below the skin’s surface. As a result, proper and accurate treatment can be planned out. 

    5. 5. Brown Spots

      Pigmentation and discolouration such as moles, age spots, and freckles are caused by increased melanin production and can appear both on and under the surface of the skin.

      Once Canfield VISIA locates the area and size of the spots, breaking melanocytes apart becomes easier.

    6. 6. Red Areas

      Do you have concentrated reddened areas on your skin but aren’t sure what they are? There are a number of possibilities.

      Canfield VISIA can determine if the redness is rosacea, acne, broken blood vessels or spider veins, inflammation, or other conditions. The process is pain-free, has no side effects, and you can get the results in a matter of minutes.

      Once confirmed, your skincare specialist can design a customized regimen or recommend laser treatment and other appropriate procedures.

    7. 7. Pores

      Generally, you can only tell if your pores are clogged when you see blackheads or whiteheads on your face. Your skin will also appear dull. 

      With the help of Canfield VISIA, clusters of enlarged pores can easily be seen — including their size and definition so that suitable products and treatments can be used to avoid breakouts. 

    8. 8. Skin Irregularities

      Canfield VISIA can also detect the location, colour, shape, and size of other skin irregularities such as scarring and vascular lesions. It can also track whether a specific skincare product or treatment is working or not.
