Observe 520 Skin Analysis FAQ's

Q. What is the advantage of the Observe 520?

A. Assessing and  Planning Home Care and Treatments.

Home care accounts for 80% of results, so we can get you working on your skin at home and create a home and in-clinic treatment plan specifically designed to meet your skin's needs. We also look at your current skin and makeup products to see which you can continue to use and which you shouldn't if you're wanting to avoid further irritation or breakouts.  Please bring your products with you to your appointment as we cannot assess them later without booking a product check appointment.

Q. What is involved?

A. Your skin analysis will include a series of photographs using our Observe Skin Analyser. We will discuss your skin concerns and develop a treatment plan, especially for you. Your observe photographs will be sent to you via email so you can look back on them, or if your game, show your friends!

​Q. Do I need to do anything before my appointment?

A. Arrive with skin unwashed, with no moisturiser or anything at all on the skin if you can.  In this state can we give a true analysis and allow our skin diagnostic equipment to work properly. We realise this is not always possible, however, if you can, it will be of great benefit.

Please know the names of your current skincare products, makeup, and all medication, vitamins, and supplements you currently take. Feel free to photograph each one​ or bring them with you

Q. What does the Observe do?

A. The skin is much more complex than what can be seen with the naked eye – that’s why we use the Observe 520 for professional skin analysis. With advanced analysis technology, we can view blemishes, fine lines, dryness, and uneven skin tone in depth. This allows us to better understand your unique skin concerns to treat existing imperfections, and even address underlying concerns before they become visible.

Q. What will it show me?

A. Get ready to face the facts on the true state of your skin! The Observe 520 will examine:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines – including ones you can’t even see yet!

  • The sebum (oil) content of your skin, which can contribute to acne and blemishes

  • Pigmentation – closely assess the severity of freckles, sunspots, and age spots

  • The true size of your pores - determines if enlarged pores are a problem for your skin

  • The moisture content of your skin. Skin dehydration is a serious age-contributing factor!

  • Loss of skin firmness. Is your skin aging well, or losing elasticity at a rapid rate?

  • Your skin tone your overall skin health

Q. What will the results mean?

A. After the analyser scans your skin, it will automatically provide 6 different images of your skin. We are then equipped with thorough and accurate information on how to best go about prescribing a personal skin treatment plan that will provide the best long-term skin health possible.

Q. Do I only have one scan?

A. Our professional skin analysis not only correctly determines the problem areas in your skin; it also allows you the opportunity to track the progress of your skin over time. You can see closer than ever before the state of your skin before treatment, and also how it looks throughout and after treatment – so you will feel confident and assured in the real results your treatments are providing.

We recommend clients receive professional skin analysis with the Observe 520 at least twice a year to accurately track their skin progress and address any underlying skin health concerns as soon as possible. This is the best way to ensure your skin remains at optimum health all year round!
