MOVE OVER ‘SELFIE’!- Why we think the Microsoft ‘Guess My Age’ App will lead to even more cosmetic surgery contemplation

You may have seen the Microsoft app, Guess My Age, which guesses your age through an uploaded photo. The app, seems to be overrating a persons age, and was reported that like the ‘selfie’ phenomenon, this will make the users feel even more conscious about looking old.

The peoples general consensus heard over Social media has responded with outrage to Microsoft about the app. So much so that Microsoft installed a default apology after each age guess which reads “Sorry if we didn’t quite guess your age or gender right – we are still improving this feature.

At Cosmetic Surgery Partners we decided to give the Guess My Age app a go to see why people were so outraged, it quickly transpired that the app I nothing more than a gimmick. The below photo is of the same person, the slight changes in tone and facial expression produce a guesstimated age gap of 7 years! For the record neither of the age guesses were correct.

Have you had your ego crushed by Guess My Age?

If you have had your ego killed by this app or would just like to know whether the products you’ve been using have been keeping their promises and holding up their end of the deal, empower yourself and uncover the REAL truth about your skin with VISIA complexion analysis.
