The technological innovation that’s happening in beauty right now never ceases to amaze me. We’ve got at-home tools that rival in-office treatments and 3-D printers that can actually print nail polish onto your nails—not to mention, a host of futuristic apps that take augmented reality to a whole new level. Adding to that lineup is beauty-tech company Vanity Planet’s new artificial intelligence skin-analyzing technology called Skin Reporter that was just announced today.
Created in partnership with Perfect Corp., known for its cutting-edge AI apps and in-store “try-on” displays, the new service available via Vanity Planet’s website allows users to virtually scan their face with their smartphone and have their complexion “diagnosed” within seconds.
In four easy steps that take less than a minute to complete (see images below), the technology measures four different factors contributing to overall skin health, including oiliness, wrinkles, texture and dryness. Next, it analyzes the data and recommends different devices from its tech-focused product offering to address the user’s specific skin-care concerns. It also helps to educate the consumer on how these devices might be beneficial for them.
According to Vanity Planet, “the effectiveness of Skin Reporter has been analyzed and verified by dermatologists and skin-care experts to ensure users receive accurate, safe and reliable recommendations, in line with customized product offerings.”
“The clinical nature of skin care requires a diagnostic approach that is personalized for every face,” says Alice Chang, Perfect Corp. founder and CEO. “Vanity Planet’s Skin Reporter provides individualized, knowledge-based beauty devices that cater to consumers’ specific and unique needs. By offering a preliminary assessment of skin health through a smartphone, beauty shoppers can be more conscious and confident in their skin-care choices, finding the products that work best for them, saving time and money.”
