MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A new high-end camera not only snaps photos of your face, but also does an intense reading below the skin.
Cindy Gonzalez, 25, has to the naked eye, flawless skin. But go a little deeper, and it’s a different story.
The system is called the Visia and it performs a never before seen assessment of the quality of your skin. Dermatologists say the machine analysis is free but there is a charge for the remedy if one is needed.
Dermatologist Judith Crowell explained the higher the number in the test, the better. Each of the percentages shows where Cindy is in comparison to her age group.
When it comes to sun damage, which is the most important image to look at; she comes in at 21 percent. Someone her age should be at 100 percent.
As far as bacteria in the skin, Cindy’s at her lowest number, 13 percent.
Dr. Crowell said, “These are very low for someone her age and she should have high numbers.”
Cindy was shocked. The biggest surprise was evidence of brown spots at 40 percent. So what’s the recommendation for Cindy?
The doctor said to use sun block and a moisturizing regimen. The doctor looked at her own skin results from the Visia and after a few months of prescription creams and ointments; she has had a vast improvement.
