OBSERV 520X – Skin analysis

Comprehensive skin assessment is inseparable from professional skin improvement and forms the first step to ideal, healthy skin. Many skin concerns arise in the deeper skin layers and only become more visible over time.

With the Observ 520x we can really get underneath the skin to show our clients their skin problems and concerns. OBSERV 520X – Skin analysis

DAYLIGHT—The daylight mode allows us to observe the client’s skin under controlled daylight conditions and make comparisons of skin conditions appearing in daylight and the other skin analysis modes

SURFACE—This mode highlights the skin’s surface texture and roughness. Early signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles, as well as pore structure, bumpy skin, rough patches, acne, and scar tissue, become more apparent and help to understand the overall skin’s micro-relief providing a good indicator of the quality and underlying structure of the skins’ tissue.

CROSS POLARISED—The cross-polarization mode provides us with an unparalleled view below the skin’s surface. At the touch of a button, vascular or pigmentation disorders become visible to the eye.

REDNESS—Microvascular structures and inflammation in the dermis become clearly visible in this picture. Increased facial redness can be a significant cosmetic concern for many people, generally indicating skin (hyper) sensitivity and irritation. Two types of redness are usually distinguished: chronic persistent redness caused by an impairment of the skin barrier or a vascular condition, and temporary reactive redness.

PARALLEL POARISED—The parallel-polarization technology enhances the visualization of the skin’s surface textures. In this mode, the skin’s microrelief, fine lines, and wrinkle formations can be observed with high detail.

PIGMENTION—Skin tone inhomogeneities such as local pigmentation and skin discoloration (also known as hyperpigmentation) are highlighted and are better distinguishable from the topographical ageing signs like wrinkles or sagging skin in this picture.

Pigmentation may be caused by external factors such as unprotected sun exposure, but also by biological factors such as the hormone levels changes during puberty, pregnancy, or as part of the normal ageing process.

TRUE UV—The true UV mode allows you to obtain a clearer, more contrasting, and detailed image of the skin conditions of your client than with conventional devices.

WOODS—In the simulated Wood’s light mode, the spectral composition mimics a classical Wood’s light. The patented illumination technology allows the modification of the Wood’s light spectrum and provides an extra diagnostic dimension.


To really show the improvements we have made to our client’s skin.

Once we have your different images, the Observ app allows us to compare and contrast pictures, highlight advice, prove your results, and show you the issues in your skin that you didn’t know existed.
