Many dermatological clinics are investing in the Visioface® device, by the German company Courage & Khazaka. It is very interesting to medical practice, as it has an integrated high-resolution camera (up to 12 Megapixel) that takes full-face photographs under a standardized lighting, so it is possible to analyze the changes before and after a treatment in the same position. It is also utilized in academic efficacy studies of cosmetics, as it has useful tools to see the skin in real condition in a very easy and fast way.
As the images have high quality, it is possible to zoom and note every detail of the skin, up to the pores. The analyses can be done in groups of up to 4 photos, so the changes over time are visible and easily compared.
It comes with unique software that can calculate the number, size and area of pores and spots, the area surface and volume of wrinkles, the differences in skin color and 3D images of specific areas are also possible to create.
The photographs are taken with 210 white light LEDs but it is also possible to produce images with a filter that imitates UV light, so it will be possible to see the present sun damage and premature skin aging that is not visible yet, being a great tool to anti-aging care.
If possible, follow your skin treatment with a Visioface® device as it will be possible to see your skin to the smallest details, so you can understand better what it needs. It helps to understand if the treatment is working and what may happen in the future or if proper care is taken of.
