Key Takeaways

What Is AI Skin Analyzer Technology?

The latest AI Skin Analyzer Technology is designed to help customers figure out their skin concerns quickly and accurately.

Analyze Skin Health & Personalize Product Recommendations

AI skin analyzer technology can analyze a person's skin health and determine whether or not a person has an uneven skin tone, acne, or other skin concerns.

With this data, the customer can then receive an AI virtual skin analysis telling them more about the health of their skin, along with personalized product recommendations meant to treat their deficiencies.

The AI skin analyzer technology has huge benefits for both the business and the consumers. With the online skin analysis service, brands can connect with the consumer wherever they are, and consumers can get direct access to brands and products from the comfort of their own homes. It’s a win-win.

Personalized Skin Assessment Generated by AI

In the past, customers had to do online skin type quizzes or fill out questionnaires for brands to understand their personal skin conditions, yet this was not only time-consuming, but also often led to inaccurate results.

For example, customers may feel they have a dry skin, but have difficulty to describe in which area specifically or how much moisture they need. Now with virtual skin analysis, the skin concerns are clearly shown in numbers, so the customers can easily visualize their skin condition and pick suitable skincare products.

AI Skin Tech v.s. Physician Assessment

In a recent study by Dr. Steven Feldman, Professor of Dermatology at the Wake Forest School of Medicine, comparing the AI Skin Diagnostic technology and physician assessment, he found that the AI skin diagnostic technology provided by Perfect Corp. is highly correlated with the physician skin assessment.

Full Research: 


How Was the Research Conducted?

The results were obtained this way: a board-certified dermatologist compared and ranked photos of patients with various skin concerns. The physician was then blinded to the skin scores provided by Perfect Corp.’s AI Skin Diagnostic Technology. Then, the AI Skin Tech scores were compared with the dermatologist ratings to determine if the scores are aligned.

A Look at the Current Skincare Industry

The skincare and beauty industry has changed in recent years, and that’s especially true during the COVID-19 era. Customers no longer have the option of heading to a skincare counter or pharmacy to test out products or get skin diagnoses from skin analysis machines.

Skincare brands are having a tougher time reaching customers in traditional avenues, meaning they’ve had to make a quick pivot to virtual-first approaches like providing online skin analysis services. Even with these challenges, it’s still expected that the skincare industry as a whole will be worth $18.7 billion in 2021 (“Skin Care”).

Part of that may be because of the lipstick effect, a phenomenon where consumers indulge more when they are under financial stress. During the coronavirus, a period of great distress for most Americans, hair care product sales rose 82%, while nail care product sales rose by 9% (Ledesma). Furthermore, online skincare sales were up 24% from sales in 2019, suggesting the pandemic couldn’t slow the drive for a virtual skincare beauty experience (Ledesma).
