When you’re considering a new beauty product or in-office dermatology procedure, you usually only have a few descriptions, some before-and-afters, and possibly a review or testimonial or two to help you decide what to choose. But none of these take into account your skin type and current issues. Nailing your perfect skin-care routine is a fine art, one that requires a ton of trial and error, which often comes at an expense not only to your checking account, but also to your skin itself.

This problem was the impetus for ModiFace to develop its newest simulator software, Skin AI, forthcoming in dermatologists’ offices, which uses artificial intelligence and video-editing technology to simulate skin transformations in real time. Created with the help of a panel of dermatologists, the simulator is designed to pinpoint a range of skin issues and show you how various methods of treatment could impact them.
