The most accurate skin analysis, powered by artificial intelligence.


Effaclar SPOTSCAN is a skin analyser developed with Dermatologists for blemish-prone skin. Powered by artificial intelligence, SPOTSCAN analyses your skin and recommends a personalised skincare routine based on your scan.

To build the most accurate and innovative algorithm, La Roche-Posay brought together dermatologists from around the world to analyse thousands of images of men and women with different skin types and levels of acne severity.

The free service analyses your selfies to determine your level of spots from 0 to 4+ and not only gives product recommendations but also tips.
