The skin is the largest organ of our bodies and is responsible for protecting us against environmental elements, sensation, temperature regulation, absorption and many metabolic processes, so it is important that we take good care of it. Conducting a thorough skin analysis is one of the most important aspects not only for any treatment in order to achieve the results that you’re looking for, but also for health reasons to ensure there are no underlying conditions that need to be addressed. What’s important about skin analysis is that it gives you a clear picture of the current state of your skin, from which a treatment plan can be made and science based cosmeceuticals that would be of benefit may be recommended.
Skin analysis involves a careful assessment of your skin’s condition, taking into account skin type, underlying medical conditions, previous sun exposure and your daily skin care routine along with looking at the skin in a special light box. Inside the light box, ultraviolet light is used to reveal underlying damage beneath the surface of the skin. Signs of sun damage become immediately apparent, but other colours can be interpreted to show signs of dehydration, excessive oil production, thickened skin and pigmentation.
Remember that prevention is always better than cure, so take care of your skin – but if your skin analysis does show damage to your skin, in many cases it is reversible with one of our treatments or by using a cosmeceutical skincare product.
