Observ 520 Skin Analysis

The OBSERV 520 is a state of the art professional skin analysing system that helps to diagnose a wide variety of skin conditions with accuracy. 

How well do you really know your skin?

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

What does Observ see?

Many skin conditions that appear on the skins surface begin deep down in the skin and are often difficult to see and diagnose with the naked eye. The Observ allows us to view these conditions by using patented skin fluorescence and illumination technology. By using this technology we can instantly reveal many skin conditions:

Pigmentation - Fine Lines & Wrinkles - Broken Veins, Redness & Rosacea - Skin Texture - Acne, Breakouts and Blocked Pores - Oil Production

  • Daylight image is a ‘control’ image. That means it is taken without interference from daylight or artificial lights in the room. It is the ‘true’ image we would use to compare with other images produced by the analyser.
  • Cross polarized image explores just beneath the top layer looking at blood vessels and pigmentation. This would show up any skin inflammation and broken capillaries.
  • Parallel polarized image enhances the skin’s surface textures. In this image, textural irregularities, fine lines and wrinkles are clearly exposed. It can also identify excess hardening of the skin, blackheads and enlarged pores.
  • True UV image uses harmless levels of Ultraviolet light to penetrate the top layer of skin thereby turning the human skin into a lamp. This creates a very clear image compared to other handheld devices. Skin problems exposed include melasma, sun damage, freckles, thinning skin, dry skin, clogged pores, normal pores and normal oil flow. Normal bacteria on the skin surface is highlighted by bright red coloured spots as the porphyrins produced by the bacteria become florescent in this light.
  • Wood’s light image is specific for looking at sebaceous gland activity. This can unveil oily skin, dry skin or combination skin.
  • Complexion image is a combination of all the other images. It can expose changes to the skin tone due to sun-damage which varies on different areas of the face.
