Observ Skin Scan
Many skin conditions that surface in time originate from the deeper skin layers and are difficult to diagnose with the human eye.
The Observ 520x exposes those conditions by using a patented skin fluorescence and polarized light illumination technology. Using this unique technology, we can instantly reveal skin conditions, create awareness and propose targeted treatment programs.
With the Observ 520x we can help you visualize many skin conditions detectable by the scan, such as:
Porphyrin In Acne
Free Oil Flow
Sensitive And Thinned Skin Areas
Fine Skin Surface Texture
Fine Line Patterns
The OBSERV 520x is the top of the range skin analysis device which boasts 8 different lighting modes:
Daylight – The daylight mode allows observation under controlled daylight conditions and helps make comparisons of skin conditions appearing in daylight and the other skin analysis modes.
Surface – This mode highlights the skin’s surface texture and roughness. Early signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles, as well as pore structure, bumpy skin, rough patches, acne and scar tissue become more apparent and help to understand the overall skin’s micro relief providing a good indicator of the quality and underlying structure of the skins tissue.
Cross Polarised – The cross-polarization mode provides an unparalleled view below the skin’s surface. At the touch of a button vascular or pigmentation disorders become visible to the eye.
Redness – Microvascular structures and inflammation in the dermis become clearly visible in this picture. Increased facial redness can be a significant cosmetic concern for many people, generally indicating skin (hyper) sensitivity and irritation. Two types of redness are usually distinguished: chronic persistent redness caused by an impairment of the skin barrier or a vascular condition, and temporary reactive redness.
Paralell Polarised – The parallel-polarization technology enhances the visualization of the skin’s surface textures. In this mode, the skin’s microrelief, fine lines and wrinkle formations can be observed with high detail.
Pigmentation – Skin tone inhomogeneity such as local pigmentation and skin discoloration (also known as hyperpigmentation) are highlighted and are better distinguishable from the topographical ageing signs like wrinkles or sagging skin in this picture.
Pigmentation may be caused by external factors such as unprotected sun exposure, but also to biological factors such as the hormone levels changes during puberty, pregnancy or as part of the normal ageing process.
True UV – The true UV mode allows you to obtain a clearer, more contrasting and detailed image of the skin conditions than with conventional devices.
Woods – In the simulated Wood’s light mode, the spectral composition mimics a classical Wood’s light. The patented illumination technology allows the modification of the Wood’s light spectrum and provides an extra diagnostic dimension.Book a Consultation
