Korea Shows How Devices Will Be Of Growing Importance In Skincare

November 10, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Certain skincare opportunities will be driven by devices, with the global beauty devices market set to grow from $27.8 billion in 2016 to $94.3 billion by 2023 (P&S Market Research), Korea provides a possible future view into this market In 2013, L’Oréal launched in Korea an advanced skin care system for cleaning and firming, soon followed by Philips, Panasonic, Toshiba, AmorePacific and LG Household & Health Care. In September, LG Electronics launched “LG Pra.L” (Korean) its beauty appliance lineup that includes the Derma LED Mask, the Total Lift-up Care, the Galvanic Ion Booster and the Dual-Motion Cleanser, with prices ranging from $200 to $700. LG claims its LED mask and lift care improve skin tightening through the use of high-frequency LEDs and micro-currents, while its cleanser washes skin 10x better than conventional methods.  One interesting development is the growing use of data and AI. Samsung, for example, offers two devices (S-Skin and Lumini) that analyze a user’s skin for issues including dryness, blemishes, excess sebum and wrinkles, sends data to an app that recommends solutions and allows in-app chat sessions with selected demonologists.[Image Credit: © Samsung]
