Skin Analysis

Change your skin’s future with Observ 520

At Bow House, we’re committed to understanding your unique needs so that we can develop the right treatment programme for you. Observ 520 skin analysis is at the heart of this – used as an essential part of our facial-diagnostic consultation, it enables us to identify signs of ageing and skin conditions beneath the skin’s surface that are not yet visible to the human eye.

Observ 520 provides an incredible opportunity to target the concerns raised before they begin to show. Based on the principle of skin fluorescence, its patented UV technology highlights everything from collagen loss to fine lines, hyperpigmentation, blocked pores and vascular conditions such as lesions and cysts. This insight and understanding means we can take a more informed and intelligent approach to caring for your skin.*

  • Used in all our consultations for facial treatments
  • Patented UV technology identifies signs of ageing and skin condition beneath the skin’s surface
  • Highlights fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, hyperpigmentation, lesions, cysts, blocked pores and dry and thinned skin
  • Helps to develop a bespoke treatment programme that addresses concerns before they become visible*

In-depth analysis of your skin

Observ 520 reveals skin fluorescence by exposing the skin to a low dose of UV rays (a small fraction compared to natural sunlight and 3 times less than a conventional Wood’s lamp used for skin analysis). Patented UV technology provides an unparalleled depth of analysis that’s clear, comprehensive and informative.

The following conditions and concerns are highlighted:*

  • Porphyrin in acne, blackheads and milia
  • Blocked pores/congestion
  • Sun damage and pigmentation
  • Dehydrated skin
  • Wrinkle formations
  • Fine line patterns
  • Rosacea
  • Skin irritations
  • Areas with poor circulation
  • Areas with collagen loss
  • Vascular conditions such as lesions and cysts
  • Sensitive and thinned skin

  1. What is Observ 520 skin analysis?

    Observ 520 is an advanced diagnostic tool that provides in-depth analysis of your skin. Using UV patented technology, the procedure enables us to see a clear picture of your skin’s health as well as signs of ageing beneath the skin’s surface. Ultimately, it can highlight potential problems before they become visible. This gives us a fantastic opportunity to develop a treatment plan that meets your skin’s needs (both now and in the future).*

  2. What happens during the analysis?

    It’s a very simple and straightforward process. You simply sit facing the Observ 520 diagnostic machine while the analysis takes place. We’ll then go through the results with you in detail.

  3. How long does the analysis take?

    The actual skin analysis and consultation takes 60 minutes. We’ll discuss your results and possible skincare and lifestyle changes as well as potential treatments.

  4. Is this analysis a one-off?

    At Bow House, we understand that skin is changing all the time. We like to use your results as an informed starting point in caring for your skin for the longer term. The technology is ideal for monitoring progress when treatments have been completed so you can see how your skin has improved.

  5. Is the analysis safe?

    This is an extremely safe diagnostic procedure. Observ 520’s patented UV technology exposes skin to a far lower dose of UV rays than natural sunlight.
