What is VISIA Skin Analysis?
With so many different skin types, tones, and complexions, it can be incredibly hard to know how to enhance the appearance of your skin. At Clear Lake Dermatology, we work VISIA skin analysis into our consultations to clearly identify the precise needs of our patients. By utilizing a multi-point positioning system and live image overlay, VISIA is able to provide us with high-resolution images of the surface and subsurface of your skin. This, in turn, allows us to gauge its overall health and condition. At the end of the process, Dr. Narin Apisarnthanarax or Dr. Sharon Kim will have the information necessary to know if they should be treating sun damage, aging, or any number of dermatological issues. During your consultation in Webster, TX, we'll use this state-of-the-art system in order to gain a better insight into what exactly is ailing your skin.
What are the benefits?
If you have consistent issues or concerns with your skin, you may worry that your problems are not being diagnosed or addressed completely. At Clear Lake Dermatology, our Visia skin analysis helps to accurately diagnose, along with a number of other benefits:
- Scans for hyperpigmentation, sun exposure, and UV damage
- Evaluates the size of your pores
- Determines how clogged or full your pores are
- Measures your skin quality amongst other peers to establish a baseline

"I have tried everything and the kitchen sink for my skin, and I know these providers are at the top of the line for options. While I’m still struggling, they never dismiss me or belittle who I am when seeking care repeatedly. I have had great experiences with both of the Physician Assistants, even with my recurrent issues I know I’m in the best hands. They’re empathetic, the facility is clean and beautiful, and I’ve never waited more than 10 minutes past appointment times."- M.B. / Yelp / Jan 26, 2023

Am I a Candidate for Visia Skin Analysis?
Virtually everyone is an ideal fit for VISIA skin analysis. No matter your skin type or condition, our staff can utilize VISIA to identify the needs of your skin. Many of our patients with sun damage spots, hyperpigmentation, rough skin texture, large pores, or dry skin have found great success through the utilization of this system. No matter what is affecting you, we have confidence in VISIA's ability to provide us with the information we need in order to quickly and effectively diagnose it.
How Does Visia Skin Analysis Work?
This analysis of your skin is performed in our treatment rooms. First, we will cleanse your face of any makeup or other buildup before placing it directly in front of the device. Once activated, UV rays will begin to pass over the treatment area as we capture high-definition images. Typically, we use VISIA to focus on areas of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, skin texture issues, large pores, and/or dry skin. Once this is complete, we will use the provided information in order to create a custom treatment plan that is designed specifically to suit the needs of your skin.
What Results Can I Expect from Visia Skin Analysis?
Within mere minutes of the scan, this system can provide us with the full results of the analysis, including digital and 3D imaging. We will make full use of this information in our treatment plan, as well as in recommended skincare products that will work best for your skin or skin condition. In addition, by receiving continued analyses after multiple visits, we can accurately track your results and, if necessary, adjust your treatment plan accordingly. Often, after a VISIA skin analysis, many of our patients receive:
- Laser treatments
- Broadband light treatments
- Injectables (wrinkle relaxers and/or fillers)
- Medical-grade facials
- Chemical peels
- Microneedling (with or without infusions)
VISIA Skin Analysis FAQ
Why is VISIA skin analysis important?
VISIA skin analysis conducted at Clear Lake Dermatology is an excellent and important tool because it helps our skilled dermatologists learn more about your skin and lets you know what treatments will be best for your skin’s health and aesthetic goals. For example, if you come into our Webster, TX facility believing you need a chemical peel but VISIA helps you understand that a medical-grade facial will be the best treatment at that time for your complexion, you're helping your skin to become as healthy as possible.
Does VISIA skin analysis hurt?
VISIA skin analysis is just an external scan of your skin. There is no pain involved. Due to the UV flashes, we do recommend that you close your eyes while VISIA is in operation. If you have any concerns or anxieties, please ask a member of the Clear Lake Dermatology team and we will be happy to work with you in any way to increase your comfort.
How should I prepare for VISIA skin analysis?
Prior to VISIA skin analysis performed at Clear Lake Dermatology, all you need to do is make sure you’re not wearing any sunscreen or makeup — that's it. Our skilled team will take the rest from there and have a full skin assessment and potential treatment recommendations available for you soon after.
