However, Kendall recently shared that, like many of us, she struggled with teenage acne. She remembers, “It completely ruined my self-esteem.” Continuing, of her acne, Kendall says, “it really impacted me.”

Burgess- Reveal image

Take a good look at your skin. What do you see? Limited to only a topical view, you are only able to see physical manifestations of what lies beneath. With the help of facial imaging, Greta, Burgess Plastic Surgery’s expert skin care specialist, will help you take a deeper look. Using the Reveal Imager, we are able to look below the skin’s surface—exposing what cannot be seen by the naked eye.

What is the Reveal Imager?

The latest technology in skin imaging, the Reveal Imager is a state of the art imaging system. This patented high resolution technology allows Greta to examine and analyze your skin with startling clarity. Looking deep below the skin’s surface, Greta identifies and exposes underlying skin ailments such as sun damage, brown spots, and areas of hyperpigmentation. In addition, areas of acne, inflammation, and rosacea can be identified beneath the skin’s surface—where complexion problems originate.
