  • Publication number: 20230005229
    Abstract: A computer system obtains at least one 3D scan of a body surface; automatically identifies, based on the at least one 3D scan, one or more features (e.g., nose, lips, eyes, eyebrows, cheekbones, or specific portions thereof, or other features) of the body surface; and generates a digital 3D model of the body surface. The digital 3D model includes the identified features of the human body surface. In an embodiment, the step of generating of the digital 3D model is based on the at least one 3D scan and the identified features of the body surface. In an embodiment, the digital 3D model comprises a 3D mesh file. The digital 3D model can be used in various ways. For example, output of a manufacturing process (e.g., a 3D printed item, a cosmetics product, a personal care product) can be based on the digital 3D model.

  • Publication number: 20220370822
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for integrated photo-responsive contouring treatment are described. Methods include identifying a region of skin corresponding to a contouring treatment of the skin. The region of skin may be provided with a photo-responsive material overlying a portion of the region of the skin. Methods may include identifying one or more treatment regions overlapping the photo-responsive material. The treatment regions may be identified at least in part to apply the contouring treatment. Methods may include determining an irradiation profile for each of the one or more treatment regions to contour each respective treatment region as part of applying the contouring treatment. Methods may also include irradiating the photo-responsive material at the one or more treatment regions in accordance with the respective irradiation profiles.

  • Publication number: 20220309269
    Abstract: A computer system obtains a digital 3-dimensional model of a body surface, such as a human face. Portions of the surface correspond to reference points in the model. The system obtains image data of a personal care device in use as well as image data of the surface on which the model is based. The system calculates a relative location of the device relative to the reference points based on the image data of the surface. The system determines a true position of the device with respect to the surface based on the image data of the device in use, known physical dimensions of the device, and its relative location, even when the device is partially occluded from view. The system may, based on the true position of the device, cause device to perform actions such as application of a cosmetic or administration of a skin therapy.
