Many have seen a picture that is circulating around the Internet of an older gentleman who worked as a truck driver for years. As he was working as a truck driver for 20 years or more, only one side of his face was exposed to the sun. This picture shows how 20 years of sun damage has only affected one side of his face.
This picture has caused a lot of people to rethink their habits regarding the sun and has caused them to second guess the way they take care of their skin.
You may look in the mirror and think your face looks pretty good for your age. You may not have any large sunspots and only have a few fine lines. Overall, you are quite satisfied with your appearance. However, you may not really understand what is going on below the surface. The sun affects our skin more than just a deep tan or a sunburn. You can reverse the effects of the sun with the VISIA Complexion Analysis.
When you come into our office to use the VISIA Complexion Analysis, you’re going to get an idea of what is going on beneath the surface of your skin. You will sit in a comfortable chair and be asked to put your face onto a chin rest inside a small machine. We will ask you to close your eyes while three images are taken of your face. These images are going to help to detect things like sunspots, fine wrinkles, and a wide variety of other skin issues.
One of the ways the VISIA Complexion Analysis is so thorough is that after we input your age, the images of your face will be compared to other individuals in your same age group. This is going to help us to get a good understanding of what kind of issues you are facing as well as how you compare to others.
One of the biggest benefits of the VISIA Complexion Analysis is that it can be used for individualized skincare. You may think that you have a particular problem, but using this analysis is going to help you to see if that is your real problem or if something else needs to be addressed. Also, it will allow us to come up with the best solution.
There are a variety of things that you can do in order to protect your skin from the sun. One of the best things that you can do is apply sunscreen to your skin every single day. You may need to reapply multiple times throughout the day, especially if you work in the sun or will be in and out of the water.
If you spend lots of time in the sun and fear that your skin may be damaged, come into our office for the VISIA Complexion Analysis. We will be able to determine the condition of your skin and then come up with an individualized skincare plan in order to help you address any problems you are having.
