The Observ Facial Scanner: Your Face Or Mine?

By Martin Kinsella on July 9th, 2019

Glance in the mirror every morning and you might not think there’s anything particularly wrong with your face’s skin tone or complexion. Sure, it may be a little red and flaky, or you may have a few more fine lines or wrinkles than you’d like, but nothing of major concern. The thing is, what lies beneath the surface may tell a different story, and there may be some real issues that need addressing before they affect your beauty, and leave lasting damage that you’d only wished you’d known about sooner. Luckily, there’s a great device that can provide insight into the deeper layers of your skin, telling us what areas you should be focusing on, and allowing us to create a bespoke treatment plan that will tackle any problems before they worsen. This is The Observ facial scanner, and in this blog, we talk about its importance. 

What Does The Observ Facial Scanner Do?

Many skin conditions reside deep within the skin’s layers, making them difficult to detect and diagnose with the human eye. Unchecked, these conditions can leave lasting damage that can alter both the interior and exterior beauty of your face. The Observ facial scanner exposes these conditions by using fluorescence and polarized light illumination technology that allows us to determine the right targeted treatment program for you, and monitor your progress with repeat consultations. Providing more clarity and guidance than any other technology currently available on the market, we trust The Observ completely, and it hasn’t steered us wrong yet. In fact, we find that many of our clients can’t wait to use The Observ again after their first try, because they’re anxious to see their results!

So, how does The Observ do all this? Well, there are 6 different camera modes that all offer different functionality:

  1. Daylight Mode: Illuminates your skin in even light, providing a base image for further analysis and comparison with other modes.
  2. Cross-Polarisation Mode: Identifies any redness and skin discolouration, such as rosacea, acne, vascular capillaries and any pigmentation.
  3. Parallel-Polarised Mode: Emphasises the skin’s surface textures, highlighting pores, wrinkles, any dehydration and hyperkeratosis (any skin thickening).
  4. True UV Mode: Highlights hidden skin conditions right beneath the skin’s surface, by showing pores, sebum and gland activity, as well as any scar tissue growth and hyperpigmentation.
  5. Simulated Wood’s Light Mode: This mode shows skin lipids and oil congestion in the skin using the Wood’s light spectrum.
  6. Complexion Analysis: Revealing issues with skin tone and pigmentation, this analysis also shows how the skin will look without proper treatment and care in 10 years’ time.
