The Sun and Your Skin: A Marriage Not Made in Heaven.
The sun beams energy to earth as heat, visible light and invisible light. Ultraviolet A and B (UVA and
UVB) light are invisible to the eye, but are the cause of skin cancer, sun damage, and wrinkling. While
most people are aware that excessive sun exposure leads to prematurely aging skin, it is more difficult
to recognize the symptoms of early sun damage or take the right actions to minimize unnecessary sun
The SELFE App: A Revolution in Technology
SELFE App incorporates artificial intelligence with clinical insights from Sheena Kong, M.D. , a Harvard trained physician who specializes in the treatment of sun-damaged skin. With a snap of a selfie, SELFE analyzes your face, providing instant feedback on your current skin condition, along with personalized recommendations on how you can combat aging skin.
If sun exposure occurs, the app offers a customized blend of recommendations to remind you to use proper sunscreen, along with sun protection tips, and a long-term strategy, such as skincare tips in how to reduce free radicals, or about laser treatments that can reverse sun damage.
Seeing is Believing
The SELFE app detects the symptoms of long-term sun exposure. It presents the facial symptoms in a manner that is simple and easy to understand. Dr. Kong is excited that advanced technology can help people stay looking younger, longer. “This definitely helps to remind people to manage their sun exposure properly over high intensity summer days,” Dr. Kong says.
The AI has been trained using hundreds of thousands of images to analyze symptoms of sun damage and provide custom feedback. Uploaded selfies are assessed on over a million data points, calculated, and presented to you in easy-to-understand information, including an overall skin assessment and a visual highlight of areas of relevance.More than just a one-shot assessment, the journal features of the app help people see how they are changing over time and the outcomes of their efforts to protect against harmful overexposure to the sun’s rays.
