SKIN HEALTH ANALYSIS IN DEPTH

Vascularity (red) and Pigmentation⠀

This analysis consists of several elements that reveal different aspects of your skin's condition.

  1. Physical Exam of the Skin, Hair, and Nails by a Board Certified Dermatologist
  2. Determination of your proper Fitzpatrick Skin Type (I-VI)
  3. Wood's Light Exam if appropriate
  4. Profect computerized imaging and diagnostics:
    • Reveals potential problem areas that may lead to further aging and other skin complications
    • Detects underlying sun damage before it becomes fully visible
    • Highlights areas of pigmentation before these areas are fully clinically apparent
    • Detects poorly hydrated areas across your face and forehead
    • Detect and monitor redness and vascularity in the face

Your skin type, hydration, pigmentation, and sensitivity are quite important. As there are numerous topicals and procedures, proper evaluation of these variables will greatly assist in choosing the correct treatment course for you. The steps outlined above will help us advise you on how to prepare your skin prior to treatments, determine the areas on your skin that may need the most attention, and monitor the overall improvement of your skin. Your treatment plan will be formulated for YOUR SKIN!

aSKINg the EXPERT: Skin Health Analysis

What is the most important reason for a skin check?

The most important reason for a skin check is to make sure there are no skin cancers present.

Who does my skin check?

Dr. Martin Kassir, a Board Certified Dermatologist in Dallas Texas performs your skin check.

Does Specialized Photography help?

Yes. Specialized photography allows us to see qualities about the skin that we may not see with the naked eye.

What is an example of how Specialized Photography helps?

One example would be vascularity (redness and small veins) of the face and forehead. We get a much more detailed image than we would with the naked eye. Furthermore, we can monitor progress of conditions such as rosacea and monitor progress of treatments such as IPL (intense pulse light or photofacial).

Will Skin Analysis help me with my pigment issues or "dark spots"?

Yes. Polarized photography of the face and forehead and melanin analysis will both identify problem areas and help us determine the best treatment for each patient.

Is my skin type a factor in determining what treatments I can have?

Determination of your proper Fitzpatrick Skin Type (I-VI) is important before proceeding with any treatment. When you visit your dermatologist be sure to explain what happens to your skin when exposed to the sun. Do you burn, peel, spots of pigmentation, slight tan, or get very tan? This is crucial information that helps determine the best and safest course of action for procedures.
