Just by looking at it, can you see if your skin is aging fast or slow?

In today's world of advanced medical tech, we can now peer into every subtle shift within the body through techniques like CT or MRI scans. The field of skincare is no exception, boasting tools like the VISIA® Gen. 7, equipped with exclusive RBX® Technology and Cross-Polarized Light. This technology allows for a deep skin analysis, revealing damages even beneath layers that “appear” healthy.

Collected data would help therapists catch early “SOS” signals from your skin, like problems with the skin's microbiome (C.acne), inflammation, pigment buildup, and reduced collagen and elastin, which in turn allows personalized treatment plans for truly effective skincare.

And that’s where Mornington Spa in District 2, Ho Chi Minh City, enters the scene.

Mornington Spa: Bringing Australian Expertise in Skincare Therapy to Vietnam

Ms. Vân, returning to Vietnam after 13 years in Australia, brought back a wealth of knowledge from her professional training & work in the beauty industry. Together with her husband, an engineer, they founded Mornington Spa. This venture is distinguished by its use of cutting-edge diagnostic technologies to elevate skincare treatments within the Spa, as well as to assist clients in selecting the best home skincare products.

The name ‘Mornington’ is inspired by the Mornington Peninsula- the cornerstone of Australia's beauty industry. Synonymous with picturesque beaches, rolling hills and lush vineyards, yet what sets Mornington's spas apart is their blend of relaxation and a rigorous scientific approach to skincare.

Join us in the skin analysis room at Mornington Spa to explore the eight specific criteria that define your unique 'skin profile.'

8 Criteria of Skin Analysis with the VISIA® Gen. 7

To gain a comprehensive understanding of your skin, Mornington Spa also takes into consideration your lifestyle and skincare habits, including stimulant use, potential irritants, and any other factors that might impact your skin's health.

The therapists would also discuss your primary concerns, be it hidden acnes, pore blockages, pigmentations, uneven skin tone, etc.

Following the analysis, your skin's condition is systematically assessed based on eight distinct criteria, with each aspect being scored and thoroughly examined by the therapist for a personalized skin health profile.

These eight evaluation criteria are:

Spots: Assesses pigmentation such as freckles, post-acne marks, or redness caused by vascular damage.

Pores: Reveals and quantifies enlarged pores, helping to pinpoint areas prone to sebum and bacteria accumulation.

Wrinkles: Detects and measures wrinkles, indicating areas where collagen and elastin have diminished, especially around the eyes and forehead, where the skin is most delicate.

Texture: Evaluate the skin's surface texture, identifying any unevenness that affects overall smoothness.

Porphyrins: Identifies the presence and activity of C. Acnes bacteria, which is correlated to acne development and skin inflammation.

Brown Spots: Maps out and sizes up areas of hyperpigmentation under the skin, often due to excessive melanin production.

UV Spots: Uncovers pigmentation caused by long-term UV exposure on the skin's surface and underneath.

Red Areas: Highlights areas of capillary damage, often associated with inflammatory conditions like acne, rosacea, spider veins, or sunburn.

This comprehensive analysis forms the basis for a tailored treatment plan, and also lets you gauge the effectiveness of your current skincare routine.
