Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon
The Observ is an analysis machine that we use at MACS clinic to examine skin layers not visible to the naked eye. Many skin conditions originate from the deeper skin layers and are difficult to diagnose with the human eye. Observ skin analysis exposes the underlying causes of such conditions using special light illumination technology, so your clinician can recommend an appropriate course of treatment.
The Observ is a machine that we use at the clinic to examine skin layers not visible to the naked eye. The machine shines different light modes onto your skin to enable your clinician to recommend appropriate treatments:
Your makeup will be removed if appropriate, and you will be asked to place your chin on a chin rest inside the machine:
You will be asked to keep your eyes closed throughout the analysis, and once you’re comfortable, it will begin. Six lights will flash and your clinician will let you know when you can open your eyes and remove your head from the machine.
Your results will be available instantly and your clinician can talk you through them.
There are no side effects or risks – the machine simply shines light onto your face.
Anyone can have the Observ Skin Analysis done, although if you are sensitive to light or epileptic it may not be suitable for you. Please talk to your doctor if you have any concerns.
The images created by the machine allow us to create you an accurate, bespoke treatment plan that’s designed for you based on both your skin concerns and technical analysis of the deeper layers of your skin.
I just had the otoplasty procedure at MACS clinic in Watford. From the initial consultation through to the surgery itself, I felt totally looked after by the brilliant staff. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, the clinic is very nice and I felt at ease at all times. Mr Vadodaria was very thorough, reassuring and happy to answer any questions and the surgery itself was painless. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the clinic to anyone!
Fantastic service! Lovely and approachable staff. Surgeon was incredibly informative, took the time to answer all my questions. Would highly recommend!
5 stars!!! Thank you, I’ve already recommended you to friends and family
