Updated software allows faster image capture with automatic skin type classification, refined facial feature detection and more.

With special imaging technology, our VISIA machine will digitally capture eight properties of your skin using standard, UV and cross polarized photography to analyze:

  • Skin irregularities, which appear on the surface of the skin. Most are red or brown lesions like age spots, scars, freckles or blemishes. These irregularities can be improved with exfoliation to encourage skin cell turnover.
  • Brown spots, which indicate melanin concentrations on or below the skin. These brown spots are hyperpigmentation due to sun damage or melasma.
  • Wrinkles, which are creases, folds or furrows of the skin that increase over time and result from sun exposure, smoking or natural aging. Fine lines show as light green and deep wrinkles show as dark green lines.
  • Skin texture, which measures the smoothness of your skin by identifying valleys and hills. Raised areas — including blackheads, dead skin and pimples — show in yellow while indentions like fine lines, pores and open follicles show in blue.
  • Pores are the surface openings of sweat and oil gland ducts. VISIA distinguishes pores from spots based on their size. Clusters of pores may indicate that you have oily or acne-prone skin.
  • UV spots, which are the result of overexposure to sunlight.
  • Red areas/Vascular, which are broken or weak capillaries. This VISIA profile shows sub-surface vascular conditions like acne, rosacea or spider veins.
  • Porphyrins, or a build-up of natural oil and bacteria, can lead to acne.

Our complimentary consultation is the first step to achieving your goals.  We provide all our clients with a one-hour session with a skincare professional and a photo analysis with the Visia. Below is what to expect at your first visit with Laser Spa Group’s Skin Consultant.

UV photography provides the most complete data set available for sun damage assessment and analysis, including UV fluorescence imaging to reveal porphyrins. Canfield’s RBX® Technology separates the unique color signatures of Red and Brown skin components for unequaled visualization of conditions such as spider veins, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, and acne.


Spots are typically brown or red skin lesions including freckles, acne scars, hyper-pigmentation and vascular lesions.


Wrinkles are furrows, folds or creases in the skin.


Texture is primarily an analysis of skin smoothness.


Pores are the circular surface openings of sweat gland ducts.

UV Spots

UV Spots occur when melanin coagulates below the skin surface as a result of sun damage.

Brown Spots

Brown Spots are lesions on the skin such as hyper-pigmentation, freckles, lentigines, and melasma.

Red Areas

Red Areas represent a variety of conditions, such as acne, inflammation, Rosacea or spider veins.
