Most Popular Procedures
Every person’s skin is unique and needs a customized approach. And for understanding this uniqueness, Dermatologists and Aestheticians use Skin Analysis methods to understand or evaluate the person’s skin tone, texture, and health. Many tools like a Woods lamp, magnifying lamp, and digital skin analysis machine are employed for evaluating different skin conditions like acne, pigmentation, eczema, tanning (skin damage due to overexposure to Sun), aging, and rosacea, etc.
The outcome of skin analysis i.e., the skin profile becomes an important tool in preparing a treatment plan for addressing the identified skin issue.

A trichologist or hair stylist uses Hair Analysis which is a set of tests that are conducted to understand/evaluate one’s hair health or condition. This hair health analysis includes tests like visual inspection of the hair strands and the scalp, and a hair pull test to check the hair shedding rate. These tests help in identifying the cause of hair loss or scalp conditions like seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, or dandruff and formulate a customized or personalized treatment plan for addressing the identified issues.
Nail analysis is a set of tests and personal questionnaire sessions to understand/evaluate nail health and condition conducted by Dermatologists or nail technicians. They inquire the patients on signs and symptoms experienced by them in relation to nails and living style. Many times, the cause for nail conditions like brittleness/ breakage apart from fungal infections, nail bed tumors, or psoriasis are identified. Based on the analysis report, Specialists develop a treatment plan to address the identified nail issue.
