“This new technology allows those interested in facial revitalization treatments to view the potential results by looking at the ModiFace-powered digital mirror. The results are photo-realistic, and are shown with full 3D rendering, meaning that addition of volume and lifting of the face can be observed from all angles exactly as one would look into a regular mirror.” – Dr. Parham Aarabi, Founder and CEO of ModiFace
“Based on our unique facial detection and simulation technology, the JUVÉDERM® Mirror tracks facial features like wrinkles, folds and loss of fullness and performs a life-like 3D simulation of clinically- calibrated facial enhancements. This process is performed 30 times per second resulting in a highly photo-realistic mirror-like simulation of a facial aesthetic treatment.” – Dr. Parham Aarabi, Founder and CEO of ModiFace
The JUVÉDERM Mirror may, at first glance, appear to be nothing more than another way for people to appear younger, rather than actually be younger. For those of us who advocate longevity medical research in [easyazon_link identifier=”0615932045″ locale=”US” nw=”y” tag=”seriou03-20″]pursuit of indefinite life extension[/easyazon_link], the idea of simulating anti-aging treatment doesn’t go quite far enough. However, given the growing power of augmented reality technologies, such as the JUVÉDERM Mirror, to help people get a sense of what they’re missing out as they age could become a powerful tool at pushing them to advocate longevity medical research as well.
If people are truly okay with aging, and thus okay with the idea of death, then why do we spend so much money on beauty products to help veil the phenotypical effects of aging? Why do we spend so much money on hospitals and doctors to help keep us alive? Perhaps we’re not really okay with aging, nor death. Perhaps we merely lose sight of what we lost over the years. With the power of advanced technology, however, people will only need to look at a mirror and see not only who they are today, but who they could be tomorrow!
