Health skin

Merz Aesthetics have devised a scientific way to demonstrate what you might expect from your treatment. The Merz Aesthetics Scales™ is a rating system that measures the skin’s ageing process. The five point scale can objectively rate age-related skin change and share potential results with you.

The scales below show wrinkle scales from 0 to 4. For example if you are at 4, realistically, you will have results matching 2 and so on. The lesser wrinkles you have the better the results, so if you are on a 3 scale, you will be on a 1 or 0 scale after treatment. All results are subjective and never entirely accurate.
