VISIA Complexion Analysis Now Available at South Shore Skin Center and Spa in Plymouth

Ever wonder if there was a better way to care for your skin? Looking to gain insight on the condition of your skin – above and below the surface?

South Shore Skin Center and Spa, one of the most progressive dermatology practices in Massachusetts with offices in Plymouth and Cohasset, now offers VISIA Complexion Analysis, which can identify the skin’s condition both topically and sub-surface – enabling the Spa team to provide a truly customized skin care maintenance and treatment plan.

“VISIA provides an in-depth analysis of the skin’s surface and sub-surface which enables us to individualize facial rejuvenation and skin care regimen,” noted Ramzi Saad, M.D.

“The extent of UV damage (“Ultraviolet” damage caused by the sun and tanning beds) is not visible to the naked eye, but VISIA enables us to identify UV damage and recommend products or treatments accordingly.”

With VISIA’s precise imaging, South Shore Skin Center and Spa can now monitor a patient’s complexion vitality and check the effectiveness of the patient’s skin care regimen over time. VISIA’s skin and complexion analysis measures wrinkles and the depth of pores; analyzes the skin’s condition and pigment disturbances; recognizes porphyrins from bacteria and identifies UV damage. A VISIA Complexion Analysis takes approximately 30 minutes.

A VISIA Complexion Analysis is the first step of South Shore Skin Center and Spa’s “SkinPlan” – a unique, three-step skin care consultation and analysis. Following the VISIA Complexion Analysis,

a South Shore Skin Center and Spa expert will discuss the results of the evaluation and recommend results-oriented treatments and products in a customized SkinPlan. The second step of the SkinPlan is In-Clinic Treatments utilizing South Shore Skin Center and Spa’s highly advanced suite of services to help patients obtain their ideal skin. The third step is In-Home Care, where specific corrective skin care products are recommended for use at-home to accelerate and enhance patients’ In-Clinic treatments.

VISIA Complexion Analysis is only available at South Shore Skin Center and Spa’s Plymouth location.

To schedule a complimentary VISIA Complexion Analysis, the first step in South Shore Skin Center and Spa’s SkinPlan, contact the Plymouth office (508) 747-0711.

South Shore Skin Center and Spa Offers Exclusive New ePrime

South Shore Skin Center and Spa, one of the most progressive dermatology practices in Massachusetts with offices in Plymouth and Cohasset, is one of the only providers in New England to offer the FDA-approved ePrime – a new, non-surgical skin tightening technology.

ePrime is a revolutionary new facial treatment technology that has recently been approved by the FDA for use in physician’s offices. It is an energy-based dermal volumizer device that tightens the skin and reduces wrinkles on the lower face and neck. ePrime is a non-surgical, minimally invasive facial enhancement with a quick recovery period of two to three days.

The procedure penetrates to the skin’s deepest layer, stimulating both collagen and elastin production. ePrime (Syneron) utilizes radio frequency energy to activate the dermis.

“We are excited to offer this cutting-edge procedure to our patients as a non-surgical alternative to traditional lifts,” noted Richard Eisen, M.D. “Its effectiveness is similar to other ablative lasers, yet it is unique because it also stimulates the production of new elastin and hyaluronic acid. Patients have noticeably improved skin tone and volume – a more youthful appearance.”

For questions or to schedule an ePrime consultation, contact South Shore Skin Center and Spa in Plymouth (508) 747-0711 or Cohasset (781) 383-3340.
