Visia Skin Analysis

The VISIA skin analysis is a non-invasive technology that scans your skin - looking at its strengths and weaknesses - and producing an assessment of your skin’s health.

The VISIA scan measures: Porphyrins (evidence of bacteria in pores), skin pigmentation, pore size & UV spots, sun damage, texture & wrinkles.

Evaluating Your Visia Results

  • Visia Evaluation

    Your VISIA results are compared to 2,000 of your peers of the same age and skin color, and rates your skin age vs. actual age.

  • Recommendations

    With this assessment, we have a baseline of your skin’s health, and you'll get recommendations for skincare programs. Use the Visia to objectively measure your progress going forward.

  • Imagine the Change

    VISIA can also be used to simulate aging and repair, seeing what you would look like in the future with or without filler and neurotoxin treatments.

Neurotoxins aka Botox

The most common cosmetic procedure in the world. Nearly painless, and highly effective, this treatment relaxes muscles causing wrinkles (and more) and can erase years within a few short days!

When properly applied, neurotoxins can smooth the forehead, lift the brow and open the eye space, ease TMJ symptoms, help headaches, treat excessive sweating, balance facial asymmetry, shrink pores, tighten jawline, repair jowls, tighten the neck, and SO much more.

There is no downtime; results are seen in 2-5 days and last for 3-6 months on average. Most patients follow a regular schedule of re-treatments as the product wears off, as part of their rejuvenation maintenance program.

Injectables | Non-Surgical Facelift

The most common cosmetic procedure in the world. Nearly painless, and highly effective, this treatment relaxes muscles causing wrinkles (and more) and can erase years within a few short days!

Face shape is altered by the loss of bone, fat, muscle, and collagen, which wear down from years of exposure to sun and visible light. These structural losses can contribute to natural genetic tendencies to hollows, sagging, or disproportionalities.

SkinHappy Combo Facial Types

1-2 Rejuvenating Facial

This is a combination of medical microneedling and Hydrafacial MD. The procedure begins with a medical microneedling procedure, to enhance penetration of nourishing ingredients to stimulate skin healing and growth, followed 5-7 days later by a Hydrafacial treatment, to speed up removal of the shedding old skin, leaving a beautifully glowing and rejuvenated surface! Super easy, super healing, and super beautiful.

1-2-3 Rejuvenating Facial

A combination of medical microneedling, chemical peel, and Hydrafacial MD. The medical microneedling procedure enhances penetration of nourishing ingredients to stimulate skin healing and growth, followed by the application of rejuvenating chemical acids. This provides skin-renewal stimulation at the deeper areas of skin in greatest need for repair and renewal. For the final step, 5-7 days later, you will receive a Hydrafacial treatment, to speed up removal of the shedding old skin, and leave a beautifully glowing and rejuvenated surface.

The Microneedling with Infusion Facial

This special offering combines the use of medical microneedling with neurotoxin. By introducing microdroplets of dilute neurotoxin into skin immediately after microneedling, you can experience a shrinkage of the size of facial pores, and a reduction in excess facial redness which will last for many months.
