In the dermatology and medical spa industries, one of the most important aspects of the patient experience is the skin assessment. Whether they are struggling with acne, redness, wrinkles or other types of skin conditions, patients need access to quick and precise skin assessments in order to identify the best treatments.
Physician Skin Assessments
In many clinical settings, a dermatologist will examine the patient’s skin to identify major skin issues. This skin assessment allows physicians to prescribe the most effective treatment plan for the patient, whether it is a focused skincare regimen or an office treatment such as botox.
The Power of Advanced AI Technology to Perform Skin Assessments
A physician assessment is one of the most effective ways to assess skin concerns in a clinical setting. However, AI Skin technology has quickly advanced in recent years and now provides a modern, quick, and seamless way for medical providers to deliver skin assessments to patients.
New Study Confirms That AI Skin Tech Results Align with Physician Skin Assessments
With cutting-edge AI technology, dermatologists and medical spa providers can offer patients a thorough skin analysis that can be delivered in mere seconds from a smartphone or tablet device in the patient’s hand. This allows providers to quickly and precisely prescribe the best product regimen to treat patient skin concerns.
How New Medical Study Compared Physician Skin Assessments to AI Skin Analysis
In a recent study by Dr. Steven Feldman, Professor of Dermatology at the Wake Forest School of Medicine, the results provided by Perfect Corp.’s AI Skin Diagnostic technology were proven to be highly correlated with skin assessments done by physicians themselves, confirming the solution’s accuracy and reliability for clinical settings. Read on to learn more about the study and why AI Skin Technology is set to transform the dermatology and medical spa space.
What is Perfect Corp.’s AI Skin Diagnostic?
Perfect Corp.’s AI Skin Diagnostic is a cutting-edge solution that leverages advanced AI algorithms to identify up to 14 major skin concerns and deliver a score for each concern including:
- Dark Circles
- Skin Firmness
- Droopy Upper Eyelid
- Droopy Lower Eyelid
- Visible Pores
With these results, patients are able to better understand their skin health and the products needed to improve it. The technology analyzes three images of a person’s face - front, left, and right profiles, and performs skin analysis, detecting problems with spots, wrinkles, and more. This ultra-precise method ensures full facial coverage, including difficult-to-map areas such as the chin and cheeks.
Comparing Perfect Corp.’s AI Skin Diagnostic Technology to Physician Skin Assessments
To assess the reliability between a physician’s skin consultation and Perfect Corp.’s AI Skin Diagnostic, a board-certified dermatologist compared and ranked paired photographs of patients, selecting which patient in each pair appeared to have worse skin health for major skin concerns including spots, wrinkles, dryness, redness, oiliness, texture, and enlarged pores. The physician was then blinded to the skin scores delivered by Perfect Corp.’s AI Skin Diagnostic technology. The rankings of Perfect Corp.’s AI Skin Diagnostic and the dermatologist ratings were then compared to determine how the scores aligned for each skin concern measured.
The study confirmed that the skin assessments obtained using Perfect Corp.’s AI Skin software were highly correlated with assessments done by physicians, indicating the accuracy and precision of the AI Skin software in recognizing skin concerns. Agreement was the highest in the assessment of redness, wrinkles, eyebags, and radiance (83.7%, 83.7%, 83.7% and 81.6%, respectively).
AI Skin Tech Proven to Be Highly Accurate and Reliable for Skin Assessments:
The study also confirmed that Perfect Corp.’s AI Skin technology has excellent test-retest reliability (+90%), delivering accurate and consistent results with each scan and skin assessment. The study observed the results of the software when analyzing patients with a variety of skin tones, skin types, ages, and genders, as well as skin in various lighting conditions and backgrounds.
This data confirms that Perfect Corp.’s AI Skin technology is an excellent option for dermatologists and medical spa providers who want a quick, precise and modern way to identify patient’s skin concerns in a clinical setting.How Dermatologists and Medical Spas Can Help Patients to Track Treatment Results Over Time:
In addition to providing quick and accurate skin consultations, Perfect Corp.’s AI Skin diagnostic technology also provides patients with a fun and easy way to track improvements to their skin over time. As many dermatologists and providers can attest to, it can be challenging for patients to adhere to their skin treatment plans.
With a fun tool like Perfect Corp.’s AI Skin Diagnostic, patients can easily scan their skin and see how their skin scores have improved after implementing a specific skin treatment. This provides a fun and engaging way to keep patients committed to treatment plans and encourage them to follow through and see results.
