WHAT IS OBSERV SKIN ANALYSIS?
The Observ is a machine that we use at the clinic to examine skin layers not visible to the naked eye. The machine shines different light modes onto your skin to enable your clinician to recommend appropriate treatments.
The images created by the machine allow us to create you an accurate, bespoke treatment plan that’s designed for you based on both your skin concerns and a technical analysis of the deeper layers of your skin.
Anyone can have the Observ Skin Analysis done, although if you are sensitive to light or epileptic it may not be suitable for you. Please talk to your doctor if you have any concerns.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE ANALYSIS?
You will be asked to place your chin on a chin rest inside the machine. You will be asked to keep your eyes closed throughout the analysis, and once you’re comfortable, it will begin. Six lights will flash and your clinician will let you know when you can open your eyes and remove your head from the machine. Your results will be available instantly and your clinician can talk you through them.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I TYPICALLY EXPECT?
You will be shown a detailed analysis for each different light filter and your clinician will explain what each one means, with the idea that you will be given a treatment course to treat any conditions you may have. Later when you come in to the clinic we will reassess your skin with the Observ so you can see the results from your treatment.
