Visia® Analysis

What is a Visia® Analysis?

Fast, Reliable Photo Documentation

The 7th Generation VISIA® Skin Analysis System delivers a significantly improved experience for aesthetic and skin care consultations. A newly designed capture module rotates smoothly around your face, greatly simplifying the imaging process while providing greater comfort. Updated software allows faster image capture with automatic skin type classification, refined facial feature detection and more.

How VISIA® Facial Analysis Works

VISIA® multi-point positioning system and live image overlay make it easy to capture perfectly registered images to document progress over time. Rotating capture module easily captures left, right and frontal facial views.

IntelliFlash®  cross-polarized and UV lighting are used to record and measure surface and subsurface skin conditions. UV photography provides the most complete data set available for sun damage assessment and analysis, including UV fluorescence imaging to reveal porphyrins.

Canfield’s RBX® Technology separates the unique color signatures of Red and Brown skin components for unequaled visualization of conditions that result in color concentration, such as spider veins, hyperpigmentation, inflammation and other conditions.

Easily Capture High Quality, Standardized Facial Images



  • Typically brown or red skin marks, distinguishable by the distinct color and contrast from the background skin tone. Spots vary in size and shape, and are normally visible to the naked eye.


  • Furrows, folds or creases in the skin that can increase as a result of sun exposure and are associated with a decrease in skin elasticity.


  • Raised and depressed areas that indicate variations on the skin surface affecting skin smoothness.


  • Circular surface openings of sweat gland ducts. Due to shadowing, enlarged pores appear darker than the surrounding skin tone and are identified by the darker color and circular shape.


  • The absorption of UV light by epidermal melanin just below the skin surface results in the display and detection of UV spots that can result from sun damage.

Brown Spots

  • Pigmentation and discoloration on and beneath the surface of the skin.

Red Areas

  • Concentrated darker red areas, which may be related to a variety of conditions such as inflammation or spider veins.


  • Bacterial excretions that can become lodged in pores
