VISIA Complexion: Redefining the Vision of Skin Care

For most, skin analysis is more subjective than objective. After a treatment, you could feel like your skin is improved, but have you ever thought “does it really look better?” or “Did I really get the results I wanted?”

At CFR, we have answers to your questions thanks to Canfield’s VISIA Complexion Analysis System. This multi-point positioning system and live image overlay make it easy to capture perfectly registered images to document progress over time. This means, you’ll get to see a quantitative and qualitative analysis of eight different skin features to determine your overall skin condition and health. The system rotates and easily captures left, right and frontal facial views for a full analysis to help show improvement and to further customize treatment plans.


With this technology, we are able to create a baseline of your skin and facial features, as we begin your facial rejuvenation with skincare, peels, lasers and other treatments. Then, after you start your treatment, you are able to see your amazing results past what the naked eye can see.

The eight different skin features include: spots, wrinkles, texture, pores, UV spots, brown spots, red areas and porphyrins (Bacterial excretions that can become lodged in pores).

Christie Dean, Licensed Aesthetician and Laser Specialist at CFR, says “Especially for new clients, I like to use the VISIA Complexion Analysis System to get an overall perspective. I walk my clients through an analysis of their skin and then work with them to develop a treatment plan and educate them on how each step of their treatment will enhance the health and appearance of their skin”.

We document your progress with before and after pictures so we can review how your treatment plan is improving your skin.

“As a Licensed Aesthetician and Laser Specialist, I love being able to use the VISIA complexion analysis on my clients” says Melody Richt. “It’s a great tool to help assess the overall health of their skin, educate on treatment options, and track their improvements with the custom treatment plans I develop. With the use of laser treatments like Broad Band Light (BBL), clients are able to not only visibly see their sun damage minimized, but they’re able to see in a 3-D view how their treatments are improving the quality of their skin”.

Schedule your free consultation today and we’ll discuss your goals with you and, paired with the VISIA results, develop a treatment plan to help get the look you want to achieve.

Fraxel re:store Dual

The Fraxel re:store Dual wavelength system is the industry standard for effective skin resurfacing with low downtime. It is the industry standard for effective skin resurfacing, removing acne scars and surgical scars, melasma, wrinkles and other skin blemishes. This revolutionary laser skin treatment provides dramatic results with utmost safety.
