Set Up a Skin Care Consultation
Your 60 minute consultation with Pennsylvania skin care specialist Dr. Fanny Louton will begin with a thorough health and skin care history review. The discussion will focus on your skin concerns.
A photo of your skin will be taken and the Visia computer analysis will allow for an individualized corrective skin care program to be designed for you. A combination of non-invasive skin procedures, cosmeceuticals, and prescriptive medicines will be used as needed to achieve the desired results. When indicated and if time allows, you may be able to kick-start your program with one of our safe and effective treatments that very same day.
Visia Complexion Analysis
All skin care consultations, whether with the physician or with our skin care specialists, include a baseline analysis of your skin with our VISIA system. This in depth review provides the information necessary to truly individualize your home care management and the development of a complete facial rejuvenation program to match your unique complexion profile. VISIA can also be used to accurately track and/or help with the diagnosis of adverse skin conditions that may not show on the surface of the skin for many years.
An informative comparison of your complexion’s characteristics to those of other women of your same age and skin type is then created. Additionally, VISIA provides comprehensive information enabling our skin care specialists to present the optimal treatments and regimens that are right for you. A printed report, which you can take home, provides details of your imaging session and recommended rejuvenation and skin care options.
A VISIA imaging session uses multi-spectral imaging and analysis to capture key visual information for six areas affecting complexion health and appearance:
- Superficial brown spots
- Broken blood vessels
- Pore visibility
- Textural changes
- Color variation in the skin tone
- Porphyrins (evidence of bacteria in pores)
- UV spots (characteristic of photodamage, typically from overexposure to sun)
