Skin Analysis

One of the most important considerations in skin care is determining exactly where you are now as well as where you want to be. We always want to establish a base line before treatment begins because many treatments are very subtle and/or are effected over a period of time. Sometimes when this happens it makes it very difficult to evaluate progress unless the baseline was documented. For almost all treatments done at BodyScaping, except hair removal, photos and/or computerized skin analysis with The Janus ll skin analyzer and/or Dermalogica Face Mapping will be done prior to initiating procedures. This is totally pain free, not for publication, and included in the cost of many procedures.

What is a Janus Skin Analysis?
The Janus Skin Analysis system takes three photos of your face, Normal, Polarised & UV.
The data is gathered and the images are then compared to a database of people of the same age and profile. Your skin is compared directly with those in the database and results are shown based on a scorecard. The analysis shows results for the following:
  • Skin Tone
  • Wrinkles
  • Sebum
  • Porphryins
  • Pores
  • UV Damage
  • Pigmentation
What do the results mean ?
The database of people you are compared to, shows a mean value, and ranks your skin condition in three categories, Bad, Normal & Good. Based on this assessment, the doctors at Adare Cosmetics Clinic are able to advise on the right course of action to correct skin problems such as wrinkles, acne and sun damage. The Janus skin analysis assists our doctors in making a clear and comprehensive decision on the best course of action to take in the treatment of skin conditions. The results are visible to the client and they can see for themselves their skin issues through these high resolution photos.

The first, and most important, step in any skin care treatments is the analysis of your skin, which helps your Skin Therapist design a skin care treatment and home care prescription that are completely personalized to your unique needs.
Rather than simply relying on her eyes, your Skin Therapist will scrutinize your skin, inch-by-inch, using both a magnifying headset and her sense of touch. You see, while visual clues can help to identify existing problems, deeper congestion can only be determined by actually touching the skin. Not only does this method on analysis provide a much more accurate diagnosis of your skin concerns, it can actually help to detect them before they surface. Even better you will leave your skin care appointment with personalized Face Map that will show you were problems were found, and what products to use on those specific zones. This way, you’re only applying products to the parts of your face that need them, making your regimen both more results-orientated and cost-efficient. Your Skin Therapist will also keep a copy of your Face Map so together you can chart your progress.
Did you know that your health is written all over your face? Chinese Diagnosis, one of the philosophies behind FaceMapping, is based on the belief that the skin provides an outside view into the body’s internal health. Of course, we’ve known all along that, if you’re not well, your skin suffers. Your Skin Therapist can provide an even deeper view, delving into the “why” behind your skin concerns.
