London, UK (PRWEB UK) 18 July 2012
The London-based Cadogan Clinic, a leading facility for aesthetic surgery, is pleased to offer free VISIA Skin and Complexion Analysis. London patients and those who can travel to visit the Cadogan Clinic will be able to benefit from this special summer offer in July and August.
The free VISIA skin and complexion analysis London-based clients will be able to take advantage of uses multi-spectral imaging to reveal what would otherwise be undetectable damage and signs of aging on and beneath the surface of the skin. With the help of the VISIA computer imaging, the Cadogan Clinic healthcare professionals are able to evaluate the health and appearance of the patient’s skin on the basis of six criteria, being a wrinkle score, spots, pores, evenness (variations in skin tone colour), porphyrins (a measure of bacterial activity on the skin surface), and UV spots caused by overexposure to the sun.
UV spots in particular are among the most important of skin health criteria since they show the amount of ultraviolet (UV) sun damage, a leading contributor not only to roughened and uneven skin but to skin cancer as well. According to Cancer Research UK, a study published in December 2011 estimated that some 86 percent of malignant melanomas in the UK in 2010 were linked to exposure to UV radiation both from the sun and from sunbeds.
In addition to the skin and complexion evaluation, patients who undergo the free VISIA analysis at the Cadogan Clinic will also have their skin compared to a peer group of similar age and ethnicity for additional insights into their skin and complexion results.
After the completion of the free VISIA skin and complexion analysis, London patients will receive a copy of their customised VISIA report, including a detailed description of their skin analysis, a professional recommendation for any indicated treatment and advice as to skin care options.
