People wonder how they would look like with Botox or dermal fillers. With advancements in technology, doctors can now project a more accurate picture of how one might look.

Key takeaways:

  • The limitations of 2D “before and after” pictures have informed the need for 3D imaging. The 2D photos can be altered through makeup and lighting.
  • 3D imaging techniques will help to produce images that cannot be fudged, predicting how appearances will change.
  • The technique involves the use of an algorithm that analyses 3D “before” images to accurately predict how people will look after treatment.

It will be more difficult to adapt the technology to predict the outcome of Botox injections, because these alter how the face moves, rather than its volume. But Bennamoun thinks that it will be possible if the team used 3D video images instead.
