The Skin Center Medical Spa offers the revolutionary VISIA Digital Skin Analysis in Columbus, OH and Pittsburgh, PA.

If there’s any truth to the old adage “beauty is only skin deep”, then the VISIA TM Digital Skin Analysis can reveal precisely how deep. The Skin Center Medical Spa, with locations in Pennsylvania and Ohio, offers clients a unique look at the health of their skin through The VISIA TM Digital Skin Analysis, a state-of-the-art diagnostic tool that provides clinical measurement of surface and subsurface skin conditions and damage including wrinkles, pores, sun damage and dark spots.

“This technology is revolutionizing the skin care industry,” said Dr. Dominic Brandy, founding medical director of The Skin Center Medical Spa, “With the VISIA system, we can view a detailed topographic photo of our client’s complexion, giving us the ability to customize facial rejuvenation programs as well as periodically check the effectiveness of the treatment.”    

The VISIA Digital Skin Analysis uses photographic technology to create a clear, multi-dimensional picture of a person’s complexion, measuring key facial and complexion conditions such as: fine lines, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, sun damage and porphyrins (evidence of bacterial growth). The skin complexion picture produced by VISIA provides the framework for creating a personalized facial rejuvenation program.

When the VISIA TM Digital Skin Analysis is complete, a detailed complexion comparison is done based on the skin features of people of similar age and skin type. Given to every client at the end of an Analysis is a detailed complexion report, skin comparison report and recommendations for the optimal facial rejuvenation program.

“Once we have a baseline report from the VISIA system, we are able to recommend facial rejuvenation treatments that target our client’s specific condition,” said Dr. Brandy. “After the treatment program is complete we can then repeat the VISIA analysis to see how the skin has responded to treatment.”

In addition to non-invasive medical treatments, The Skin Center Medical Spa specializes in a number of surgical procedures including upper and lower eyelids, nose contouring, chin augmentation, hair restoration, breast augmentation, liposuction, abdominal tucks and their flagship procedure – the QuickLift™.
