How to use skin analysis devices to enhance your consultations
With clients increasingly prioritising personalisation and results, using a skin scanner can significantly enhance the quality of your consultations and client care. Facial scanning devices, such as 3D Visage, give beauty professionals the ability to delve deeper into distinctive skin needs, enabling them to recommend treatments and skincare routines that are customised to the individual.
By giving your clients a complete and accurate picture of their skin condition, you provide transparency and empower them to make informed decisions.
Meanwhile, the ability to recommend customised skin care products and appropriate treatment options based on each patient’s unique needs can take your consultations to the next level of service. Lauren Auchterlonie, owner of La Skin Olney, says: “I have used various skin analysers in different clinics, and I must say, 3D Visage is probably the most comprehensive one I’ve ever used.” After capturing client images, the system stores the data, allowing you to create and adjust treatment plans.
The initial scan is a valuable starting point, providing a clear understanding of your client’s skin condition and potential challenges. “If I have a client interested in 3D Dermaforce radiofrequency (RF) microneedling, and I identify inflammation and sensitivity in the skin, I prioritise addressing these concerns before advancing to the next treatment,” says Auchterlonie. 3D Visage delivers tangible, measurable results that foster trust and credibility. The visual evidence of improvement in the client’s skin condition is compelling and reassuring.
This technology also serves as a potent upselling tool. It empowers professionals to craft bespoke treatment plans, starting with addressing immediate concerns, such as dehydration, through specialised facials and then progressing to tackle deeper issues like wrinkles with treatments like 3D Dermaforce RF microneedling or CO2 laser resurfacing.
Auchterlonie adds, “It’s an invaluable tool to demonstrate the effectiveness of treatments and the improvement in the client’s skin.”
