Life science and healthcare are already benefiting from the advances in biophotonics. The photonics methods allow to analyze different parameters of the tissue and bring new dermatological and aesthetic treatments. At the same time biophotonics offers benefits for cosmetic laboratories, in both fundamental research and the evaluation of products and ingredients. In these meeting we will discuss what new/personalised solutions photonics technologies can bring into the beauty and care industry.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships. 

Watch us LIVE on YouTube

There are limited seats and we allow only one person per company, but all our online technology meetings can be viewed LIVE on YouTube or be viewed afterwards if you have missed it.

I was delighted to attend the EPIC Online Technology Meeting on Photonics for Cosmetic and Beauty! This was my first session, so the presence of both End-users and Technology providers, and the way that the End-users shared their needs, fascinated me. Looking forward to attending upcoming EPIC meetings.
