It can also tell you how much melanin your skin has taken on, an indication of how much sun you’ve been getting. According to Sony, it is also capable of detecting conditions invisible to the eye by peering just under the surface.

Sony said the product would incorporate a technology the company developed two years ago called Smart Skin Evaluation Program (SSKEP). The technology is said to offer high-speed, ultra-accurate analysis of skin texture, blemishes, pores, brightness and colouring using back-illuminated active pixel sensors that Sony adapted for consumer use in 2009.

The BeautyExplorer will initially be released mid-March in Japan. The service will be available for between 15,000 and 20,000 Yen per month, approximately USD 126 to USD 168.
