Dr. Jason Emer uses YouCam AI Skin Diagnostic Technology and Skin Score to guide consumers to the best products for their beauty needs.
Dr. Emer, impressed with the AI and augmented reality (AR) technology of Perfect Corp, has worked closely with the company to help make his vision a reality.
Dr. Emer is especially impressed with Perfect Corp.’s YouCam Makeup, the world’s leading virtual beauty try-on app, and the fact that the company was recognized with the 2020 AI Excellence Award for its YouCam AI Skin Diagnostic Technology. Among the most Dr. Jason Emer uses YouCam AI Skin Diagnostic Technology and Skin Score to guide consumers to the best products for their beauty needs. advanced AI and deep learning technologies, YouCam Skin Diagnostic utilizes the mobile camera to instantly help consumers analyze their skin health, without the need for a secondary device.
Dr. Emer saw special value in the YouCam Skin Score, which is powered by AR and AI technologies and utilizes deep learning to provide users with real-time skincare analysis. The instant analysis tracks spots, wrinkles, texture, and dark circles to generate skin health scores for condition tracking and personalized product recommendations. The YouCam Skin Diary allows consumers to track the results of their skincare efforts so they can see changes over time.
Perfect Corp.’s AR and AI technology is so advanced that Dr. Emer is able to use the diagnostic precision of YouCam Skin Score to generate real-time product recommendations.
“The YouCam app, is much more diagnostic than what we’ve seen with other makeup applications or photo apps,” Dr. Emer says. “When seeing a patient in the office, we assess specific elements such as wrinkles, pores, texture, coloring, and just overall skin health and aging. YouCam Skin Score enables us to automate evaluation of these same skin elements from online.”
While many consumers enjoy the fun of using YouCam Skin Score and seeing the effects of products for their own skin conditions, he says it can also serve as a skincare guide.
“YouCam Skin Score is more than just a fun app,” Dr. Emer says. “Obviously, people enjoy showing others how they’ve used it, but it also has advanced diagnostics that can help establish your daily skincare routine and guide you on what products to use.”
YouCam Skin Score is proving to be a powerful educational platform, as consumers get to learn more about their own skin.
“YouCam provides a platform from which we can educate users, not only on ingredients and products, but on the skin itself,” Dr. Emer says. “People are learning a lot about their skin, more than you would think. They can learn about skin health, sun damage, pigmentation, and about wrinkles and skin aging, which can be genetic, hormonal, or from sun exposure. And then there are medical conditions such as rosacea or acne.”
Education is also part of Dr. Emer’s Emerage Skin products, which he formulates to meet consumer needs—from a medical, rather than cosmetic, standpoint.
“We use high-quality, medical-grade ingredients, and explain how they help,” Dr. Emer says. “While some of our users are focused on improving general skin health, and getting their skin to glow, other have medical problems such as rosacea or acne, which can be depressing for them. These consumers can use YouCam Skin Score to get matched to our medical-grade products to help improve their condition.”
Earlier in his career, Dr. Emer worked with skin cancer patients, so part of his educational effort is aimed at stressing the need for sunscreens.
“Often young people don’t understand what happens when they have bad skin related to UV damage,” Dr. Emer says. “YouCam Skin Score is able to show them if their overall skin health is low or they have some UV damage, spots, or discoloration. A starting point to remedy this would be sunscreen and a skincare product such as a retinol that could help reverse some of that damage. With Skin Score, we have the ability to help them do that.”
“The Skin Score has the precision to direct consumers to the products they actually need, the ones that will really benefit them,” Dr. Emer says. “They don’t have to fend for themselves, guessing on what to use.”
He also likes that the consumers can use the same app to track their progress—and share the results with others.
“The combination of the quality AR and AI technology, plus the Skin Score pointing to quality products, produces results that consumers are sharing with others,” Dr. Emer says. “It is great to see this sharing of photos and scores because using this app, you're able to show improvement in the quality of your skin and its health.
Dr. Emer enjoys working with Perfect Corp.—because of the technology and the people. “Their technology is amazing, and so are the people,” Dr. Emer says. “They have a fantastic team. Everyone is very motivated, very excited. And they are very protective of consumers. They want to develop experiences that are helpful, educational, and fun—while always looking for the very best results.
