Home' Clinical Aesthetics : CA issue - 2 Contents THE WAY FORWARD
ecently celebrating the 10th anniversar y of her Clear
Complexions chain with the opening of a sixth clinic, Suzie
Hoitink RN remarked that one of the biggest breakthroughs
she’s witnessed in a decade is skin analysis imaging software.
“I am over whelmed by the number of clinics that don’t use it,”
she said. “I use Canfield Reveal skin analysis to see what is going on
under the surface - this makes all the difference to the success of
“How can treatments be fully effective if we don’t know what’s
contributing to them from beneath; to be able to tackle those and
prevent future manifestations on the epidermis?
“Analysis also allows the client to take an active role in their
treatment program and they can visibly measure improvements by
comparing analytical images on a regular basis. This in turn enhances
trust and confidence – as well as repeat business and referrals.”
Clinical Aesthetics looks at system options:
The Observ diagnostic device has five
skin analysis modes - including Daylight,
simulated Woods Lamp and True UV
Illumination - in one device to assess
irregularities (such as wrinkles and
enlarged pores) and pigment conditions
both on and under the surface. LED
polychromatic technology captures a
clear, multi-dimensional image of the
highlighted facial areas. It has a smart phone and iPad cradle
so clinical reference pictures can be taken immediately and
practitioners can subsequently monitor treatment progress.
The Ca nfield Vectra H1 3D imaging
has been designed to be an easily
port able, lightweight and handheld
system enabling the practitioner to
examine every wrinkle, sun damage,
burgeoning brow n spot s and red
areas in clear detail.
From the same stable as the Canfield Reveal and Visia skin analysis
systems (distributed by Medtel Aesthetics), the Vectra H1 is particularly
ideal for facial aesthetics and clinical documentation and can be used
to capture imaging on any part of the anatomy quickly and effectively.
The imaging device is completely self-contained including an
integrated flash and ranging lights. The system is easy-to-use and
only requires minimal staff training before being ready to go.
Capture your photographs straight onto an SD card or connect
the camera to your workstation and the photos can be save directly
into the patient’s chart.
Its revolutionary Sculptor software has a comprehensive
range of simulation tools that enable you to effectively and

clearly communicate the possibilities during a consultation.
Babor Derma Visualiser was
developed with Courage and
Khazaka (C+K), world market
leader in the skin analysis segment.
It is simple to use, provides 80x
magnification, guidance through
the consultation and facilitates
the definition of skincare goals
(sales!). It targets The Big Five
factors in skin analysis: sebum, indicating the skin’s oil and lipid
content; exfoliation, indicating the skin’s moisture content (natural
protective barrier); analyses the number and size of visible pores;
measures the number and depth of wrinkles and lines; and analyses the
number and size of spots (and possible development). Practically any
entry-level laptop meets its operating requirements.
Anesi Skinview’s Sony camera microscope
and Samsung processor camera meet all
the technical requirements to recognise
in- depth the type of skin, the presence
and depth of wrinkles, pigmentation spots,
pores and more. It’s like seeing a client’s
skin 30 times closer, to measure hydration
levels, elasticity, sebum, pores, hyper
pigmentation, acne, wrinkles and even skin
sensitivity. In less than 10 minutes you can
have a complete diagnosis of your patient’s skin, with pictures and
graphics to compare with the average population of others in their
age range. Skinview allows you and your clients to see their skin’s
progress and results can be emailed to them.
Be-Check is a unit complete
with hardware and software
that integrates a skin and hair
diagnostic system, including
advice on dermocosmetics to be
used. The diagnostic system will
evaluate cutaneous hydration,
sebum level (T zone and U zone), eye contour wrinkles, skin pores,
pigmentation, tone/ elasticity and ageing level, and will summarise
data obtained in a graphic and release the advised technological
and dermocosmetic treatment. Be- Check is highly intuitive and
easy to use and includes Skin Dermatoscope, Sebum handpiece and
Netbook 10”, including dedicated software.
