comprehensive skin care assessmentYour relationship with Derm begins with a free comprehensive skin assessment.

Skin abnormalities begin in the deeper skin layers and only become visible over time. Our comprehensive skin assessment lets us look beneath the epidermis — the outer layer of your skin that can be seen by the naked eye — and treat skin problems before they become visible.

We use an advanced skin analysis system for this purpose. It lets us peer beneath the epidermis and analyze your skin for signs of developing acne, pigmentation issues, vascular abnormalities, and sun damage.

The comprehensive skin assessment takes place in a four-step process:

  1. Initial assessment. We use the skin analysis system to discover your unique skin profile and visualize the characteristics of all the layers of your skin.
  2. In-depth consultation. Using images obtained in the first step, we discuss your skin issues, explaining their medical and cosmetic significance.
  3. Treatment plan. With our knowledge of your developing skin issues, we create a treatment plan uniquely tailored to your needs.
  4. Follow-up and ongoing evaluation. As part of your ongoing treatment, we return to the skin analysis system and create new images, which we compare with the baseline images to evaluate results and show clear evidence of your progress.

 Skin Analysis System

Our skin analysis system is uniquely equipped to provide comprehensive skin care diagnostics. Its automatic face positioning system ensures consistent placement of your face for every single image.

With five angles, our skin analysis system provides comprehensive imaging of your face from every angle. Its eight lighting modes reveal acne, hyperpigmentation, melasma, inflammation, vascular issues, developing sun spots, and more.

The system is also remarkably fast, capturing all required images in mere seconds.
