We used the 7th generation VISIA Complexion Analysis System to measure progress over four, eight- and 12-weeks time with every patient that we tested with the entire sk.in serum range. Every model enrolled into the study had before and after photos taken with follow-ups every 4 weeks which allowed us to document all skin changes accurately with unbiased scoring provided by the VISIA Analysis System. Furthermore, every model was also asked to stop using their regular serums and switch to sk.in for the duration of the time (however they continued with their normal routine of cleansers, moisturisers and sunscreen).

VISIA Analysis Key Words Explained:
Spots: vary in shape and size and are typically visible by the naked eye.
Texture: raised and depressed areas on the skin surface which determines smoothness.
Wrinkles: furrows, folds, lines, or creases visible on the skin surface.
Pores: visible openings on the skin surface that represent sweat gland ducts. Enlarged pores appear darker in colour.
UV Spots: pigmented lesions found just below the skin surface.
Brown Spots: pigmented lesions on and deep in the skin.
Porphyrins: bacterial excretions found on the skin and typically lodge in pores. Can be an indication of poor skin barrier function.
Percentile Scores: 100% is the best result and similarly 0% is the worst result possible.
