What is the skin check-up?
All women (and ever more often even men) use cosmetics for the care of their skin, but only a small minority use specific products which are suitable for the kind and condition of their skin. A so-called skin check-up is a diagnostic non-invasive test which serves to evaluate the physiological balance of the skin and therefore makes it possible todiagnostically assess the kind of skin, to establish suitable cosmetics, to correct treatment errors and to evaluate the effectiveness of the treatments over time.
How is skin check-up?
The physiological conditions that can be assessed with this method are: the conditions of the hydrolipidic film, the temperature, acidity, sebum production, and hydration. The instrumental assessment allows an objective evaluation of these parameters using a device that is placed in contact with the skin. It is useful if, in the 12 hours prior to the test, the skin is not treated with cosmetics of any kind. It is a non-invasive, simple, rapid test which is easily carried out at any age.

A skin check-up therefore allows us to keep healthy skin over time and to correct any alterations, maintaining a state of well-being, which translates into a protection of the skin from external aggression. Also, as regards the skin’s ageing, it is protective thanks to the possibility of establishing a global balance in the state of health of the skin, in establishing an aesthetic diagnosis (dry, seborrheic, sensitive), in programming the hygienic measures to adopt (choice of personalized cosmetics, stopping smoking, need for sun-screening etc.), in establishing which treatments are useful for that type of patient (peelings, fillers, biorevitalization, etc), and in assessing, over time, the effects of the treatments and skin cosmetics recommended.
