Skin Analysis is the detailed evaluation of the condition and health of your skin.Direct examination can assess the level of oil and hydration and presence of any skin disease or damage. Polarised light can reveal surface irregularities and pore size, magnification can identify surface blood vessels and brown spots, Ultraviolet light can help distinguish between superficial (epidermal) and deep (dermal) pigment.Various scales can be used to assess skin such as Fitzpatrick Skin Type that grades skin from Type 1-6 based on skin reaction to sun, Burton Acne Scale that ranks degree of acne and Glogau Wrinkling severity scale that assess the degree of photoaging. The Canfield REVEAL imager is a computer controlled imager that can produce photographic records of skin analysis to help in treatment planning and also allows comparisons to be made over time.
