SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A Sacramento doctor’s office now has the latest technology to help you rejuvenate your skin, which could be the key to staying youthful, age spot and wrinkle free.
Brynn Crawford admits she enjoyed the sun in her 20s.
“I have a lot of underlying sun damage and redness in my skin, and some wrinkles underneath my eyes,” she said.
Dr. Emil Tanghetti of the Center for Dermatology and Laser Surgery says Crawford’s issues are very common.
“People come in and want to know what’s wrong,” said Tanghetti said.
Now with the VISIA Complexion Analysis, the answer is just a picture away.
“We can really identify those specific things that come together to form your complexion,” employee Julia said.
The machine takes three pictures of your face from the front and sides, revealing what the naked eye can’t see and the damage done to your skin.
“It’s not my best look,” said Crawford of her facial pictures.
VISIA will take an image showing a patient’s UV spots and allows the doctor to compare it to other people the same age. It also evaluates wrinkles, skin texture, pores and red areas on the face.
“It allows you to not worry about those things that aren’t an issue for you, and focus on those things you need to improve more,” said Julia.
Since her first analysis two months ago, Crawford says she’s already seeing results from treatments.
“When I look in the mirror, my skin seems more smooth, brighter and I’m really pleased,” she said.
So is there anything you can do to erase years off your face?
“I think we always have to pay attention,” said Julia.
As for prevention, Tanghetti says the easiest is sunscreen, because that could make a difference long term.
The cost is $50, but could be waived if you purchase any products.
