As you age, the collagen in your face depletes and wrinkles form from repetitive facial expressions. To keep a youthful look, there are many treatments that exist to correct the visible signs of aging but there are risks associated with these treatments of rejection as the body is very particular about what it will accept. One new treatment is the “vampire facelift” which uses autologous material from the patient, avoiding the chance of rejection.
As smartphones become more integrated into our lives, there are applications being made for absolutely everything imaginable. One of these apps is designed to measure the supposed attractiveness of an individual based on things like symmetry of facial features and angles in the face but is this app just another example of a negative influence on people today? Will it create just more self esteem issues?
We know you don’t believe your mother when she tells you how beautiful you are. But would you believe a phone app?
And is that a good idea?
The Ugly Meter, an app that rates users’ attractiveness, shot up to the top of the list in the iPhone app store earlier this week, just behind Angry Birds.
While more than a dozen apps that operate on the same principle have been released in the last couple years – from “Fit or Fugly” to “FaceRate” – the Ugly Meter recently gained popularity because it was featured on Howard Stern’s Sirius radio show. The app has been a top seller in China for weeks. It costs 99 cents, but if you don’t want to pay for an ugliness app there’s also the Beauty Meter, which has been ranked highly by iTunes users, as well as Face Meter and Am I Ugly?
The Ugly Meter, whose tagline is “When your friends won’t tell you the truth, the Ugly Meter will,” works by scanning a user’s face and calculating the angles, symmetry, and proportions. It ranks user’s alleged ugliness on a scale of 1 to 10. Users who rank high on the scale earn disses from the program such as, “You could win a professional ugly contest.” Userswho rank low on the scale receive compliments such as, “You’re so sexy you make Athena jealous.”
