• Demonstrate a superior standard of
client care instead of rushing straight
into a treatment that may not be
appropriate for your clients’ skin
conditions and lay the foundation for an
accurate treatment prescription in order
to achieve the best possible results
• Encourage return/repeat visits and
All of the above factors demonstrate
just how vital skin consultations are to the
overall success of an aesthetics business.
Without them, you run the risk of
neglecting a big market of keen yet
(rightfully) cautious potential clients who
just want to have a “chat” to an expert
before r ushing into a treatment they aren’t
We often we hear stories where a client
comes in seeking help for their acne
concerns. A therapist conducting a skin
consultation without using skin analysis
technology agrees with the client and
proceeds with a single acne treatment.
On the other hand, a therapist
conducting a consultation with the
assistance of skin analysing technology
such as the Dermograph reveals that,
while adult acne is the issue, examination
data has also revealed that a client’s skin is
Based on the factual findings and
recommended treatments that the
Dermograph is able to prov ide, the
therapist can proceed not only with an acne
treatment but a dehydration treatment too -
a win-win situation.
The therapist comes away with double
the profits while the client has received
better, more harmonious treatment results.
VISIA AND CANFIELD REVEAL
" We actually have 3 options in our clinic for
skin analysis (yes I know, overkill, but I’m
obsessed with clinical photography, and am
a device addict, LOL)," says leading Sydney
cosmetic physician Dr Naomi McCullum.
We have the following:
1. Visia complexion analysis.
2. Quanitificare 3D camera system
3. Clinical imaging have set up a clinical
photography system in our clinic, the
program that supports this is Lightroom, so
we have the option of skin analysis in this as
well. I highly recommend this company."
Suzie Hoitink RN, founder of Clear
Complexions clinics, says one of the biggest
breakthroughs she’s witnessed in a decade is
skin analysis imaging software.
“I am overwhelmed by the number of
clinics that don’t use it. Ever y single client
we see starts with a one-on -one consultation
of up to an hour (no Skyping!), including
a Canfield Reveal skin analysis to see
what is going on under the surface – this
makes all the difference to the success of
“What we see on the surface is just the
tip of the iceberg. How can treatments
be fully effective if we don’t know what’s
contributing to them from beneath; to be
able to tackle those and prevent future
manifestations on the epidermis?
“Analysis also allows the client to take
an active role in their treatment program.
They can see for themselves what is wrong
with their skin, and educates them as to
why certain products and treatments will
“And they can visibly measure
improvements by comparing analytical
images on a regular basis. This in turn
enhances trust and confidence.”
Among other high quality skin analysis
dev ices to consider:
Skeyndor My Skin Diagnosis Kit uses
a single lens to prov ide a detailed analysis
of what is going on beneath the surface of
The kit analyses different measurements
with a camera, polarised lights and

exacting diagnosis for wrinkles, irregular
pigmentation and acne for example.
