Own, a San Francisco-based skin health company, has created the My Own app, a patent-pending diagnostic tool that brings the power to measure and track the aging process to users’ fingertips. Free to download from Apple’s iTunes store, Google Play and www.ownproducts.com, My Own app analyzes a photograph of the user and provides a clinical evaluation of the major signs of aging, along with nutrition, wellness and beauty recommendations based on individual aging results.

Own partnered with a SiliconValley software company that specializes in dermatological clinical photography and facial recognition technology used for the security and surveillance industry to develop the tool. Users take a photo of themselves, which is then analyzed for the number of deep wrinkles and fine lines (including eye area wrinkles), percentage of face covered in hyper-pigmentation and the number of hyper-pigmented spots.Based onthe evaluation, My Own app prioritizes personal skinissuesand provides product recommendations and lifestyle advice for users to follow on a weekly basis to address these areas on a holisticlevel. Additionally, users are given a link to their personal Own portal for a more detailed depiction of their evaluation, personalized skin health regimens and content relevant for their skin’s needs.
