Observ Skin Scan Analysis
Many skin conditions originate from deeper layers of the skin and are difficult to diagnose with the human eye. The Observ skin analysis helps to diagnose common skin disorders using fluorescence illumination technology.
The Observ will take 6 images in different light modes.
Daylight, True UV, Woods, Cross Polarized, Parallel Polarized and Complexion Analysis.
Any one who comes into clinic will have their skin scanned, it gives us a baseline to start with, the great thing about the Observ is that we can fine tune your concerns and make an accurate treatment plan because we know what is actually going on from the inside out. We can also arrange follow up Observ scans to look at the progress from treatment to treatment.
Please see our 'frequently asked questions' for the different light modes the Observ uses.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is day light light mode?
Daylight – Shows skin under direct sunlight conditions, and is what others can see in natural light .
What is True UV light mode?
True UV – Through UV light, behaviour of skin cells and hard to see skin conditions such as thinning skin, melasma, sun damage, acne, secretions become distinguishable. The invisible rays have capacity to travel into the surface of the skin.
What is Woods light mode?
Woods – Similar to the UV light, the woods lamp can identify hard to see conditions in deeper dimensions of the skin. It can show if you have dry, oily or combination skin it also shows the intensity and depth of inflammatory activity surrounding the sebaceous gland.
What is Cross Polarized light mode?
Cross Polarized – In this light, the surface glare of the skin is suppressed and provides a direct view inside the skin revealing vascular (redness) or pigmentation (sun damage) disorders, thinning skin and irregularities.
What is Parallel Polarized?
Parallel Polarized – The parallel Polarized mode enhances the visibility of the skins surface textures, such as open pores, clogged pores, fine lines and wrinkles, early aging signs, rough and bumpy skin in great detail.
What is Complexion Analysis?
Complexion Analysis - The complexion analysis reveals all none uniform aspects of the skin, such as skin tone and pigmentation irregularities and irritations. It will show what is going on underneath the surface of the skin, and what would potentially come through if nothing is done to protect against the damage caused by environmental and physical factors of every day life.
