CureSkin’s treatments are evidence-based, given using photos, and supervised by its team of 20 doctors in house. They can be used either to solve problems like acne, pigmentation and hair fall, or for goal-driven skin & hair improvement over time. Cureskin doesn’t just focus on immediate problems but also helps in maintenance after the first consultation is done ensuring that results and goals for the individual are met.
Use of Digital Technology
CureSkin extensively uses digital technology for assessment of skin & hair health. The results are then verified by doctors to design the personalized treatments and regular follow-ups included in the program. The digital technology of Cureskin helps about 10000 patients daily.
CureSkin applies deep learning-based image recognition to automatically detect conditions from photos. CureSkin’s robot detects several types of problems such as different types of acne, post-acne problems such as blemishes, spots, scars, and also conditions like dark under-eye circles, and pigmentation. This technology is built over a repository of over several millions of photos and analyses pixel-level and pore-level attributes. The technology works with different skin-types, face-angles and lighting conditions, for the most accurate representation of skin.
CureSkin has its own line of branded products which are home-delivered as part of these skin regime treatment kits.
Their personalized skin health programs provide top-notch expertise, continuous care, delivered conveniently to your home. These are customized based on your photos and your individual needs so you can see the best results and experience the best care.

About the Founder
Guna Kakulapati is the Co-founder & CEO of CureSkin. The CureSkin app came out of a personal need when his son was diagnosed with a serious skin condition. In that journey, it quickly became clear that the model of a single point-in-time consultation doesn’t work for skin, and that continuous care & supervision was required to keep it healthy.
