VECTRA 3D Helps Eliminate Fear and Increase Patient Satisfaction According to Pop Sugar

Canfield's VECTRA reduces patients' pre-surgery fears by providing "hyperrealistic" 3D models of how potential changes will look on their own bodies, according to a recent article in Pop Sugar. Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. John Diaz has seen his patient satisfaction increase to "100%" since he started using VECTRA XT in his practice. "The biggest fear people have about plastic surgery is not knowing what they're going to look like. And this eliminates that fear."

In the quest for self-knowledge, the in-clinic VISIA Complexion Analysis machine provides a snapshot of your skin, highlighting underlying issues the eye does not yet see. Taking only a few minutes to scan a clean face, it documents texture, wrinkles (the difference between my scan post-Botox and six months later is quite astounding on the wrinkle count), pores and areas of rosacea, bacteria and pigmentation.  "It helps show me the underlying issues," explains London-based Dr Tapan Patel.  "So if treating rosacea, it lets me see other areas where it may not yet be visible but which I can start to treat." It can also give you a glimpse into the future of your skin. A friend with a famously creamy complexion attributes its clarity to a "skin-transforming" VISIA session. Seeing a mass of subsurface pigmentation gave her the knowledge to transform her skin regime by upping the SPFs and incorporating daily antioxidants to protect and vitamin C to repair.

Dallas Plastic Surgeon Dr. William P. Adams Jr. discusses the role of VECTRA and ViewMyConsult in his practice

When leading plastic surgeon Dr. William P.  Adams Jr. wanted a way to extend the reach of his patient consultations, the VECTRA 3D user looked no further than to Canfield Scientific’s ViewMyConsult, the company’s web-based portal that provides patients with secure remote access to consultation images and simulations. "VECTRA 3D is the centerpiece of our aesthetic consultations, and the ViewMyConsult web portal is invaluable for sharing 3D simulations with my patients while keeping track of their interest."

Medscape Stresses Importance of Pre-Treatment Complexion Analysis Citing Canfield's VISIA and Reveal

 Thorough facial analysis is essential in creating an appropriate skin treatment plan reports Medscape. Using proprietary RBX technology, Canfield's VISIA and Reveal are able to show more accurate respresentations of hemoglobin and melanin conditions, providing a more complete pre-treatment assessment.  

VISIA Skin Analysis Encourages Study Participants to Improve Sun Protection Habits

In a recent study on sun exposure and healthy skin habits, researchers from NYU and Boston University found that participants were more likely to improve their approach to sun protection after viewing images that showed their personal sun damage. Using Canfield’s VISIA® Complexion Analysis system, doctors performed a detailed sub-surface facial skin analysis and shared the resulting images with the participants. The study is published in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology.

medGadget touts the importance of the VECTRA WB360 in whole body monitoring of skin lesions over time

Canfield Scientific (Parsippany, NJ) has recently installed the first commercial VECTRA WB360 whole-body skin lesion mapping system. Skin cancer can develop from lesions on the skin, such as moles. If a lesion begins to change shape or size it might be turning cancerous. For people at risk of skin cancer, such as those who have already suffered from the disease, it is important to monitor the lesions on their skin to see if any are beginning to show signs of cancer.

Dermatology World reports on the role of Canfield's WB360 in MSKCC's multi-faceted approach to melanoma monitoring

Detecting and treating the first signs of melanoma is the best way to minimize morbidity and mortality. Two-dimensional total body photography marked the first step in providing a "road map" to lesions that bear watching. Building on that concept, Allan Halpern MD, chief of the dermatology service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, teamed with Canfield Scientific to develop and test an imaging method that creates a three-dimensional avatar of the patient.
