What is Observ Skin Analysis?


The Observ is a diagnostic imaging device which visualizes your total skin condition including the underlying “invisible” layers, skin structures and patterns. The technology behind the Observ is based on the illumination and fluorescence of different kind of lights on facial skin. Within 30 minutes, you will have a clear understanding of your own skin condition and you will be provided with personal skin care routine for any needs that are identified.

How does it work?


The Observ skin analysis works on the principle of skin fluorescence. During the analysis your skin will be exposed to a very low dose of UV rays. A harmless and safe intensity which is just a fraction of the natural sun light which you experience outdoors.

Scientists discovered a long time ago, that our skin consists of multiple layers. The only layer we can see with the human eye, is the outer layer (Epidermis). Very often the deeper layers contain the keys to healthy skincare and the prevention of signs of ageing.

The 5 benefits of a skin diagnosis with the Observ:


  • 100% safe and harmless analysis method*
  • The ability to respond to real skin needs and prevent future imperfections by using the right products & treatments
  • Keep track of progress with your skin care professional
  • Discrete and personal skin analysis report (print-out or email)
  • Start your new skin health plan directly

What hidden skin conditions we can show through the observation modes:

Daylight Mode
“Clinical evaluation” – The skin as seen in a controlled natural daylight environment.

True UV Mode
“Fluorescence skin analysis” – Skin abnormalities on the skin’s surface or in deeper skin layers create distinguishable fluorescence patterns and stand out from surrounding healthy skin.

Simulated Woods’s Light Mode
“A modernized classic” – The light dermatologists and skin therapists are familiar with. By adjusting the spectrum the distribution of skin secretions is revealed in colour.

Parallel Polarization Mode
“Show the surface texture” – An enhanced view of the skin’s surface; fine lines, micro relief, wrinkles, texture and pores.

Cross Polarization Mode
“Look into the skin” – With the skin’s surface shine suppressed, obtain an unobstructed view of dermal structures, vascular conditions, inflammations, and pigmentation.

Complexion Analysis Mode
“Irregularities revealed” – The complexion analysis reveals inhomogeneities in skin tone, pigmentation irregularities and irritations. A homogeneous complexion is the fundament of beauty.
