BrighTex Bio-Photonics LLC (California based company) has developed the Clarity Pro facial image scanner, which claims to identify bacteria-clogging pores, show where wrinkles are forming and identify skin damage caused by the sun. It can also assess the damage done to the skin due to UV rays and predict chances of getting skin cancer. In the wake of rising cases of skin cancer in the US, the Clarify Pro, is a big leap to count for to counter the threat of skin cancers.
The scanner is equivalent to the size of a TV Set and is targeted at beauty spas, dermatologists and cosmetic companies. The cost of the Clarity Pro facial image scanner is $20,000 (euro15, 941). The company Brigh Tex hopes to create a cheaper version for home use. The product can predict if a wrinkle, which has just developed, will develop into deep wrinkle or a fine line.
Clarity Pro can identify what type of bacteria is in the pores and predict where acne will form. It can also assess the damage done to the skin due to UV rays and chances of getting skin cancer.
