Let’s take a journey into the layers of your skin through our diagnostic scanner and create an individual plan to address your needs.


Looking at the menu and lists of options can be daunting. How do you know which treatment is right for you? Or perhaps you just want to better understand your own skin. At Beauty Science, we offer professional skin analysis sessions to explore what condition your skin is in.

What is the Observ 520?

The Observ 520 is an advanced visualisation system developed around the principle of skin fluorescence and polarised light illumination technologies. It uses 6 different lighting modes to detect various skin conditions: Daylight Mode; True UV Mode; Simulated Wood’s Light Mode; Parallel-Polarisation Mode; Cross-Polarisation Mode; and Complexion Analysis.

Observ diagnosis works because the cells within our skin emit visible light in a unique way. Under the True UV Mode, we can use skin fluorescence to see the contrast between normal skin and skin affected with structural or aesthetic conditions.

Diagnosing Skin Conditions

Many skin conditions originate in the lower layers of the skin before surfacing and becoming visible to the human eye. Using the unique technology of the Observ, we are able to shine a light on the deeper skin troubles you might be facing without knowing it.

An Observ analysis can be used to diagnose the following conditions:

  • Pigmentation disorders
  • Melasma
  • Porphyrin associated with acne
  • Oily skin
  • Plugged pores
  • Keratinized areas of skin
  • Dehydrated skin
  • Vascular conditions
  • Rosacea
  • Lipid-dry skin
  • Areas with poor circulation
  • Milia
  • Collagen loss
  • Wrinkle formations
  • Thinning skin
  • Fine line patterns
  • Atypical microrelief (unevenness)
  • Skin irritations

Getting your Beauty Science Skin Consultation

Your consultation will be a short 30 minute session. Our dermal therapists will guide you through a deep scan and discuss the results together with you. The clinician will offer their advice regarding your skin, supported and explained by he evidence of the Observ scan.

With your input, the dermal therapist will tailor a treatment plan to address any conditions that concern you, in the method you are most comfortable with. Your treatment plan may involve a number of different therapies to maximise effectiveness. The consultation session alone costs $75 but at Beauty Science you can receive this analysis free with a purchase of equal value.
