Comprehensive Skin Analysis

OBSERV Devices

OBSERV® is a one-of-a-kind skin analysis system that exposes the skin like never before.

Powered by sophisticated skin illumination technology, OBSERV® offers the most comprehensive diagnostic toolkit for those who wish to see deeper into the skin and visualize its many complex conditions with unparalleled clarity.

OBSERV® exposes a wide range of skin abnormalities, including pigmentation and vascular disorders, which allows both skin professionals and clients to study and understand their client's skin in great detail and discuss the best course of treatment to return the skin to balance.

Reveal Medi/Skin Spa opened November 1st, 2021. We started with offering OBSERV Consultations to introduce our business and technicians to the public. These appointments flew off the shelves and had us selling out of our skin care line and booked 99% of the clients in for a service or service package all within the first week of opening! This machine provides amazing insight and invaluable results to the client and to the technicians, to allow for precise recommendations and efficacy of products and service. The OBSERV is a piece of technology that has and will continue to help grow our business.

OBSERV® 520x offers optional tools to help analyze facial harmony & symmetry

FACIAL Symmetry

Understanding client’s facial symmetry is one of the keys to enhancing facial harmony and appeal. By mirroring both Left & Right halves of the face, you can easily identify the more “attractive” side and establish a reference point for aesthetic treatments that will improve facial symmetry.

FACIAL Thirds & Fifths

Analyze facial proportions based on the rules of thirds & fifths! With age, our face undergo physiological changes that affect facial proportions and symmetry. OBSERV® 520x enables you to monitor those changes and offer facial contouring treatments that will restore facial proportions and balance.
