THE METEORIC RISE OF BEAUTY TECH
THE METEORIC RISE OF BEAUTY TECH: SMART, SAVVY, DISRUPTIVE AND HYPER-PERSONAL
Thursday, 15 March 2018 12:00 - 12:45 p.m.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the hottest tech of all? A big crop of beauty tech innovations hit the market in force this past year. With technologies that have been typically only used in gaming, social media, healthcare monitoring and medical device development, beauty tech innovators are soaring to new heights. Beauty routines have received a colossal makeover. Consumers can now self-educate and self-treat their own personal beauty issues. VR and augmented reality systems are analyzing and treating skin problems as well as teaching proper techniques 100% personalized to the consumer. What typically you turn to a professional for, you can now DIY!
And it doesn’t stop there. There are sophisticated skin sensors to measure skin hydration and key aging factors, at-home lasers to remove hair or even re-grow it, AR-enabled apps to “try on” makeup and hair colors before you buy, as well as AI-enabled tools to diagnose and recommend appropriate treatments for your skin.
And no longer is the purchase the only focus of beauty’s biggest brands. It’s about building the strongest connection with the consumer for life.
We’re convening some of the industry’s most prolific innovators to share how 21st century beauty is being transformed by technology. Join us for an all star session which will leave you awe-inspired and dreaming about beauty tech!
