La Roche Posay, the no. 1 dermatologist recommended skincare brand worldwide, have been busy over the last two years developing a world-first, AI powered, acne diagnosis tool, Effaclar SPOTSCAN. Serious about their commitment to help people treat sensitive skin, they worked with five dermatologists and three expert clinical research organisations to bring the future of skincare to your fingertips. That’s right – thanks to this extremely high-tech tool, you can now have your skin analysed and a personalised skincare routine recommended all from your smartphone. So when Girlfriend’s resident beauty addicts, Jacqui and Alanah heard about it, they jumped at the chance to give it a try.
“Having combination skin and prone to hormonal breakouts, I always struggled to find skincare that would tackle my skin issues,” says Jacqui. “I was excited to use the Effaclar SPOTSCAN diagnosis tool that would measure my acne grade so I knew what I was dealing with.”
So how does SPOTSCAN work?
- Go to the website and take three selfies. SPOTSCAN will analyse them for spots, blackheads and pigmented marks before determining your acne grade from 0 to 4+.
- SPOTSCAN’s before/after simulator lets you see your expected results and track its improvements.
- Based on your acne grade, it will give you a personalised Effaclar skincare routine and tips.
Jacqui says “SPOTSCAN chose products for my specific skin needs. The Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel, plus the Serozinc and Effaclar Duo (+) turned out to be the perfect trio in dealing with my combination skin. I love how my skin feels! For me, the Duo (+) Complete Anti-Acne Care was the hero and is now my go-to when fighting breakouts!”
Alanah was just as excited to try it out. “My skin tends to be oily and, although it has started to age, I find I am still getting bad hormonal breakouts.” After her scan, Alanah kickstarted her new skincare routine with the products recommended to her. She says “All of the products worked beautifully together, but my favourite product is the Duo (+). It reduces redness and inflammation on my breakouts without drying out the surrounding skin.”
With AI well and truly infiltrated into our lives, it’s fantastic to see the health and beauty industries partner with it to maximise accuracy in diagnosing problems, such as acne. We love our dermatologists, and will keep them on speed dial as long as necessary, but it’s also great to know that we can rely on SPOTSCAN as a first step in learning more about our skin conditions and the products that will help us fight the good fight against our skin woes.
