Facial Skin Analysis
Combining years of skin care experience with Elemis products and the latest in skin analysis technology, we provide our clients with a comprehensive look at their skin before treatment and a projection of what their skin will look like without treatment.
This information is retained and then compared to your results as you follow the treatment plan recommended for you.
The consultation appointment takes approximately 15 minutes. During this appointment you will receive a full report on your skin’s condition and a recommended treatment plan.
This service is only available as an add-on to another service you have booked with Nikki.

With the latest in technology, we are able to quickly look at 10 areas of potential skin problems, using various types of light and light filters.
- Skin Sensitivity
- Dark Spots
- Other skin conditions using Woods Light analysis
- Moisture Levels
We start with a standard picture that we use as a basis for all comparisons.
We are able to map the sensitive skin areas as shown by the outlines in the above picture.
Concentrated, darker red areas may be related to a variety of conditions such as inflammation or spider veins.
By applying advanced algorithms, we are able to predict 5-7 years hence what the sensitive skin areas will look like if untreated.
Brown filter image
Using a brown filter we see pigmentation and discoloration on and beneath the surface of the skin.
UV Damage Predicted
By applying advanced algorithms, we are able to predict 5-7 years hence how damaged the skin will be if left untreated.
As shown in the image above we are able to map and highlight areas of wrinkles often associated with increased sun exposure and a decrease in skin elasticity.
By applying advanced algorithms, we are able to predict 5-7 years hence what the wrinkle areas will look like if untreated.
Pores and Acne
As shown in the image above we are able to map and highlight areas of larger pores that appear darker than the surrounding skin tone.
Using UV light filters we are able to look for areas of acne damage and active acne conditions that may not be visible to the naked eye.
As shown in the image above we are able to map and highlight areas of spots that are typically brown or red. Spots vary in size and shape and are normally visible.
Using a green filter, the distribution of deep spots are clearly shown.
Woods Light Analysis
Face under Woods Light
Woods lights are used by Estheticians and Dermatologists to detect various skin conditions, which show as different colorations.
White = thick corneal layer (excess dryness)
White Spots = dead cells, abnormal skin maturation
Blue/White = normal healthy skin
Purple = thin skin, lacking moisture
Light Violet = dehydrated skin
Brown = sun damage
Pink/orange = oiliness
Bright fluorescent = hydrated skin
Yellow/orange = blackheads
Bright Yellow/Green = certain fungal infections
Bright “Coral Red” = certain bacterial infections
The moisture analyzer is able to asses your skin for various levels. These are:
To provide a comprehensive analysis, we test the forehead, left, and right sides of your face.
We can also take moisture readings separately for other parts of your body such as hands and arms.
Spring and Fall Moisture Levels
Back of Hand
Summer Moisture Levels
Back of Hand
Winter Moisture Levels
Back of Hand
Once the skin analyzer has completed its analysis, you will be provided with a Comprehensive report showing:
- Overall skin condition
- Estimated skin age
- Moisture, Oil, and Elasticity levels
- Areas of concern
- Skin tone
This report provides an overall summary of the degree of your skin’s condition and an estimate of your skin’s age in years.
Understanding skin age is important and helps us guide you in selecting the proper skin care products.
Moisture, Oil, & Elasticity Details
This report provides an analysis of moisture, oiliness, and elasticity levels of the skin. In the example above, Elasticity on the right side of the face is of primary concern, followed by low moisture levels.
Skin Conditions Details
This report provides an analysis of each skin condition analyzed and the severity of that condition. The further away form the center, the more severe the condition. In the example above, Sensitivity is the most severe condition at 81%, whereas Acne is of minor concern at 28%.
This report provides an assessment of your skin tone to assist you in choosing the best makeup and skin care products for your complexion.
