3D photography: exposing 5 myths
Myths grow up around just about everything and 3D photography is no exception. Let’s zoom in on 5 common myths:
#1 TAKES TOO LONG
3D photography can in fact help save you time. With our LifeViz® systems, 3D
photographs are easy to take and automatically transferred, via Wi-Fi, to a computer. Patients
can view a reconstructed 3D image of themselves on a screen in under a minute. Ideal for
comparisons and monitoring progress, Before and After photos are automatically
standardized and measurements/volume changes are generated in just one click. A valuable
consultation ally, 3D photography puts time on your side.
#2 IS WAY TOO COMPLICATED
At Quantificare we are very aware of the importance of accessibility. That’s why our
R&D team constantly strives to design software which is straightforward and user-friendly.
Our processes are perfected using AI and streamlined for easy, effective, quick use.
Comprehensive training is available to all our customers, so they know how to get the very
best out of our 3D photography systems from the get-go. With a full year of technical support
and access to software updates, 3D photography couldn’t be simpler.
#3 IS NOT COST-EFFECTIVE
An effective consultation is one where there is a meeting of minds. The patient needs
to understand his/her options; the practitioner needs to understand what the patient wants
and realistically manage expectations. 3D photography allows patients and practitioners to
share a common vision. It highlights what is possible and clearly shows any progress over
time, improving patient satisfaction and trust. Seeing positive change can motivate patients
to consider further treatments, boosting your ROI. Investing in a LifeViz® 3D photographic
system is tantamount to investing in the future of your patients and practice
#4 IS NOT ACCURATE
Facial or physical harmony is in the detail. Precision matters. Being able to accurately
monitor change is important when it comes to aesthetic medical treatments. LifeViz® 3D
photographic systems benefit from an accuracy of up to 8µ. The reliability and precision of
our results is endorsed by their daily use in clinical studies at all stages of development,
#5 CAN’T BEAT 2D
Aesthetic Medicine is about changing shapes and skin texture.Three-dimensional
images improve visualization of skin structures otherwise difficult to view in two-dimensions.
3D images provide a full representation of a patient’s morphology, with views from multiple
angles and at different zoom levels. Incorporating 3D images will completely eradicate the
need for practitioners to interpret dimensions and volume from a 2D image alone. 3D puts
2D in the shade.
Not a figment of your imagination
3D photography, as opposed to 2D, is all about producing images with depth. It aims to
duplicate, as closely as possible, what we can see with the human eye. As such, patients can
interact with and more closely relate to what they are seeing during consultations, making
decisions about immediate and future treatments more “real.” There is a persuasive and
loyalty-building element to generating trust in what your eye is seeing. Myths, by definition,
lack depth, which certainly cannot be said about the technology and benefits of 3D
photography, especially within the context of clinical practice.
