Eve V Compared My Skin to 10 Million Images and This Is What the Technology Could Tell Me

One of the greatest thrills I’ve encountered while visiting a beauty or aesthetics business is the opportunity to undertake a facial scan.

Photo technology has come a long way in recent years – so much so, professionals are able to gather next-to-none details around the condition of our skin. While many skin conditions are visible to the naked eye, facial scanning devices have the capacity to make future predictions on what skin conditions are likely to present. Knowing how to treat a condition from the deepest dermal layers, right through to the skin’s surface, provides an opportunity for aestheticians to maximise treatment results of their clients.

In hopes of better understanding the condition of my skin, and to address underlying concerns via the best means possible, I met with Shirley Chan, Digital Transformation Manager at EveLab Insight. Shirley makes up a key part of the emerging EveLab Insight team here in Australia.

The globally-recognised device provider landed on our shores in January this year, bringing with it three game-changing skin analysis devices: Eve V, Eve M, and Eve Key. EveLab Insight utilises advanced capabilities to produce AI-driven recommendations for professionals and their clients.

I underwent a facial scan using the Eve V device – the company’s flagship platform offering complete 3D facial contour analysis and a deeper understanding of over 40 skin concerns related to aging, sensitivity and skin health. It took around 30 seconds for the technology to compare images of my face to a database of over 10 million images. A range of light spectrums were used, such as daylight, true UV, cross-polarised light, parallel-polarised light, and traditional wood’s light. Changes in facial volume and contours are trackable with structured lights. The Eve Key – a handheld device offering in-depth information on hydration and oil levels via a 100x magnifying camera – was also used.

The results of the facial scan were remarkable. Never before had I been provided a more detailed analysis of the history of my skin. A summary of its report was presented, flagging the three main factors affecting skin aging, as well as three main skin problems, all bespoke to me. An overall score out of five was provided on the severity of my skin’s aging.

Digging deeper into the report, I was able to assess the causes of said skin problems, and review targeted skincare advice such as the types of technology and topicals best suited to my skin. The severity of each skin problem was ranked, with detailed 3D images showcasing the precise depth of lines and wrinkles, types of pigmentary spots present, degree of laxity, shape of medial malar and jowl contours, redness, severity of pores, severity of dark circles, severity of acne and blackheads, and distribution of oil. Skin tone, moisture and oil levels were also measured with scores indicating the areas of my face requiring attention.

The system then assigned product recommendations to me based on my unique results. It’s at this stage, the aesthetician is granted the means through which to tailor recommendations to their client based on their business’ own treatment and retail offerings.

Demand for a personalised approach to the skin is growing. It’s with technological innovations like EveLab Insight’s Eve V that are set to carry skin professionals along for the ride.
