A Bay Area company named Luum has introduced an AI-powered eyelash extension machine, aiming to revolutionize the experience.

The machine offers fast, comfortable, and consistent service, allowing technicians to focus on artistry.

Luum CEO Nathan Harding said his company is utilizing AI to “completely transform the experience of eyelash extensions.”

Customers can customize their lash preferences, and the process is quicker than traditional methods.

Luum machines are currently available at select California locations and are in high demand.

“For the client, it’s going to be super fast, super comfortable and super consistent,” Harding said.

“And the provider will be able to do three times the appointments they could do otherwise.”

“Your eyes are taped closed, and they slide you in, position you correctly [and] set the machine to do the job,” president Jo Lawson said.

“There’s nobody leaning on your forehead with these super sharp instruments, literally a millimeter from your eyeball,” Lawson said.

“So, it just feels safer, it feels cleaner, it’s faster and the clients are loving it.”

“The only thing that [the machine] could physically reach you with are these little featherweight tools,” he said.

“We need to know where your upper eyelid is very accurately, and neural networks do those kinds of tasks fantastically.”

“And we engineer those tools so that, unlike in the human process, they have very springy little tips, and then we also attach those tools to the robot,” he said.

“And then we use the machine … to create a lot of data, tons and tons of images, and then we can use those images to train neural networks to do certain things … like finding the edge of your upper eyelid,” he said.

“We need to know where your upper eyelid is very accurately, and neural networks do those kinds of tasks fantastically.”

The company is working on an advanced machine that will be even faster.

While concerns about safety and efficacy exist, the technology holds promise for the beauty industry.

“It’s in our best interest to make sure that we cue our customers up, get them trained well and have them in a situation where they’re making money while we’re making money,” Lawson said.

“This machine only gets more valuable over time.”

“[Technicians] can raise their productivity greatly – and that means there’s going to be greater income for them, and also that the physically demanding jobs are going to get easier.”

“The device’s proximity to the sensitive eye area could raise concerns about the risk of eye infections or allergic reactions to the materials used in the lash extensions,” emergency medicine physician Harvey Castro said.

“Ensuring that the system can maintain a sterile environment and that the materials used are hypoallergenic and safe for close contact with the eye area is crucial.”

“Thorough evaluation and transparency regarding safety, efficacy and regulatory compliance are essential.”

“Ensuring that operators are well-versed in both the technology and emergency procedures in case of malfunction or adverse reactions is essential for client safety,” Castro said.

“While this lash system represents an innovative step forward in beauty technology, thorough evaluation and transparency regarding its safety, efficacy and regulatory compliance are essential to addressing potential concerns from a medical standpoint,” he added.
