Futuristic beauty solutions

February 14, 2016

Keeping with the flow of last weeks technology buzz, the future of beauty also lays in beauty makeover products that let you experiment before you commit, skin and hair analysis tools, tools for skin stimulation and flaw elimination, tools to provide better posture, shield from harmful sun rays, and create a more beautiful smile, augmented and virtual reality beauty solutions, and age detection analysis etc.Beauty products haven’t embraced technology quite like other parts of our lives, at least not yet. 

MAPO

Paris-based company Wired Beauty spent three years creating a face mask (called MAPO) with a corresponding app called La Clinique Digitale. It’s a beauty mask that connects to an app to report back on how your skin is doing. 

Made up of multiple layers, you wear it like a conventional beauty mask, placing it on your forehead and cheeks. After a minute of wearing, MAPO will analyse just how you can improve your skin. It’ll measure your skin’s moisture before using its community based features to help you learn what the best routine to follow is. Through a customized coaching service, it’ll even give you a heads up on which bad habits to eliminate.

Mapo has several cool features, besides being a face mask. There are sensors in the mask, and you can check-up on your skin in less than a minute. It provides you with most accurate data regarding your skin. There are three main zones that are located on the mask that measure the levels of your skin’s moisture.

The mask is flexible and has electronics integrated into soft medical grade silicon. That material is specially incorporated into the mask because it provides a soft and secure contact with the skin. After all the data is collected, it’s transferred to your smartphone via Bluetooth, so you can manage everything using an App.

The App allows you to see the whole picture of your face with accurate levels of moisture. Of course, MAPO doesn’t just collect the data. Just like a regular face mask, it treats the skin. So, how does it do that? You can activate the booster function just by pressing one button on the App, and the mask will deliver a gentle warmth to provide the necessary skin care.

There are three main heating zones placed inside the mask.

The heating zones are placed on the cheeks and forehead and can heat up to 104°F. The heat opens the skin pores and accelerates the blood flow. You can apply your favourite cream and MAPO will boost its efficiency. 

My UV Patch

L’Oreal Group’s La Roche-Posay launched My UV Patch, which is a transparent adhesive. The new peel-and-stick sensor differs from the rigid wearables currently on the market for this purpose, since it stretches and adheres directly to any area of skin that consumers want to monitor.

Guive Balooch, global vice president of L’Oréal’s Technology Incubator, has developed this product with PCH, the Irish product engineering firm that also manufactures the wearableRingly. Through the app, the stretchable sensor that tells you how much UV exposure you are subject to. The patch lasts 5 days. The plan is to offer the patch when people buy solar creams at skincare brands such as La Roche Posay.

Consumers will be able to take a photo of the patch and upload it to the La Roche-Posay My UV Patch mobile app, which analyses the varying photosensitive dye squares to determine the amount of UV exposure the wearer has received. The My UV Patch mobile app will be available on both iOS and Android.

Hairmax

HairMax is a laser treatment you put over your scalp for 90 seconds every night to make your hair regrow and get thicker.

This new enhanced hands-free laser medical device delivers nourishing laser light to energise and revitalise your hair follicles and regrow your hair. The unique new cradle design incorporates 82 medical grade lasers and patented hair parting teeth, which parts your hair during treatment for maximum laser light delivery to your follicles to achieve optimal results.The treatment takes as little as 90 seconds, the fastest laser treatment for hair loss.

3D Nails

Inail the nail art 3D printer that can print anything on your nails within 8 seconds! It is very expensive though, but if it really works will be the delight of many. 

Also available are 3D printed nail press ons. Clawz, The Shanghai-based startup designs and produces 3D-printed press-on nails and then sells them around the world. 

Panasonic Future Mirror

Panasonic Future Mirror can analyze your skin problems: your wrinkles, sun damages and other flaws and tell you which products you should use to fix them. It also allows people to try different make-ups (and receive step by step tutorials) and hair styles. 

Whenever one has to select a foundation or lipstick, One always has to try on a few shades at the beauty counter before buying.When the Panasonic Future Mirror is installed in stores, you’ll be able to go to your favorite beauty counter and virtually try on multiple new looks. The Future Mirror automatically identifies your facial features and overlays makeup over your image in the mirror. The Future Mirror can even track you as you move, so you can see the makeup as it would appear in real life. 

The make-up artist can quickly cycle through your options and then tailor the colors and application to your taste. This makes it easy to try looks that are outside your comfort zone (like this edgy look In the picture ) and discover new shades you wouldn’t have otherwise considered. Once you like what you see in the mirror, you can purchase the products and have step-by-step application instructions emailed to you.

The Future Mirror can also be used to analyze your skin, checking for pores, radiance, sun spots, fine lines and other skin characteristics. And with your skin evaluation, you’ll receive recommendations for beauty tools, like facial steamers and cleaning devices, and skin care products, including cleaners and moisturizers.

Want to know how well your new skin regimen is working? The Future Mirror can store your results each time it performs a scan, so you can see your progress the next time you visit the store. 

Trying before buying is essential when it comes to beauty products and the Panasonic Future Mirror’s technology lets you try all the options to ensure you’re making informed buying decisions. See the Future Mirror in action in the video below. 

Panasonic said the mirror would first be sold to department stores to help shop sell beauty.

Futuristic Dental Health

Brushing, flossing, and whitening will go to the next level. A tooth-hardening pill to prevent cavities is not far off, says Marc Lowenberg, a cosmetic dentist in New York City. Lowenberg is developing tooth gloss, a brush-on protective barrier that prevents discoloration from things like red wine and coffee. And even toothpaste may become obsolete. Researchers at the University of Saskatchewan in Canada, working with Shiken, a Japanese company, have created a light-powered toothbrush, the Soladey-J3X, which is expected to be available later this year. A solar panel at the base of the handle transmits electrons to the traditional-looking brush at the top, and they interact with acid in the mouth, getting rid of bacteria and breaking down plaque.

Futuristic Hair Removal

Say good-bye to razors, wax, and depilatories: In the near future, you may be able to replace them with a home laser that cuts hair off precisely, along with another laser or Intense Pulsed Light appliance that kills the hair follicles. These devices, which are being introduced now, will cut down on how often you have to shave or wax—or may even remove hair permanently.

    Over the course of the last few years there have been a great progress and developments in such devices. Slowly after they get introduced, it is also becoming a little easier for consumer to lay their hands upon.
