Effaclar Spotscan – a mobile acne analysis app powered by artificial intelligence.  

L’Oréal and Alibaba develop Effaclar Spotscan as one of advanced skincare solutions for young people. According to a Global Burden of Disease study published in 2013, acne issues affect more than 80% of young people in the 12-25 age group. And in China, there are also about 80% of young people suffering from acne. But there is only one dermatologist per 60,000 habitants available. The lack of dermatologist increases the demand for accessible, accurate and professional advice on acne.

And Effaclar Spotscan is one of the ideal skincare solutions. Based on 6000 thousands of scientific images of acne skin collected by L’Oréal, Alibaba’s AI scientists developed machine-learning technologies to identify the user’s type of acne lesions by analyzing their selfies. And based on this analysis, the beauty app will provide personalized advice and skincare recommendations to help them solve the skin problems. The skin test app also connects the users to a skincare expert for one-on-one consultation if they have severe skin problems.

Effaclar Spotscan is a milestone for the beauty and technology companies to create a total beauty experience with open innovation and bring more happiness to people around the world. If you find this article useful, let’s give us a Like and follow Vuhes daily.
