Visia is a great guide but not the final say

Computer skin analysis is a fantastic way for you to see some of the underlying conditions of your skin, but should only be used in conjunction a consultation from your medical skin care professional.

The computer skin analysis can highlight problem areas and act as a guide for your medical treatments; however, serious skin conditions can be missed, therefore it cannot be relied upon to give you the final diagnosis when used by nonmedical professionals.
