Your personal DNA 

shows exactly how quickly your skin ages and where your specific weaknesses are - even if skin problems are not (yet) visible to the naked eye, they can already be treated.

-- Tightness and elasticity

Our DNA genetic test can help find out whether you are a carrier of genetic changes associated with accelerated collagen breakdown - before the signs have become visible.

Collagen is a structural protein in the skin and keeps it taut, firm and wrinkle-free. Like many other components of the body, collagen is constantly changing. It is continually produced and broken down throughout your life.

At a younger age, our body produces more collagen than is broken down. From around the age of 40, collagen breakdown can predominate, making the skin appear less healthy.


-- Skin damage and wrinkles caused by glycation

Glycation is described as caramelization from the inside out. The skin-damaging consequences cause wrinkles, dryness, skin laxity as well as blemishes and rosacea.

Glycation is strongly linked to accelerated skin aging and is the cause of collagen and elastin fibers losing their ability to function normally.

If glucose isn't broken down properly, it can bind to your skin's collagen and elastin fibers and form abnormal chemical bridges that cause tissue damage.

This process, also called glycation, causes your skin to become stiff and lose elasticity.


-- Damage from sun exposure and pigmentation

UV radiation is one of the main causes of premature skin aging, and our genes influence how our skin copes with sun exposure. 

90% of early skin aging symptoms and skin damage are due to exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun.

Every time your skin is exposed to UV light, skin damage occurs. Repeated damage of this type causes epidermal DNA damage, persistent inflammation and oxidative stress, which result in negative effects on the health and appearance of your skin.

Our genetic makeup plays an important role in determining how well our skin copes with sun exposure and how well it can withstand sun exposure.

The DNA genetic test tells you whether your skin has a higher or lower genetic sun protection factor.

Based on these results, DNA genetic testing can provide you with a unique, enhanced skin protection care strategy that targets the highest level of protection for your skin based on your genes.


-- Free radical damage

Scientists believe that free radicals are instrumental in the development of almost every known disease: from heart disease to arthritis, from cancer to cataracts. In fact, free radicals are primarily responsible for the aging process of the skin.

Research has shown that the amount of antioxidants in the body is proportional to the long-term healthy appearance of the skin. 

Free radicals are highly reactive, short-lived molecules that can damage virtually every molecule in our body - including the important cellular structures in the body's largest organ, the skin.

Not all people have the same amount of these powerful radical scavengers in their bodies. It has been demonstrated that some skin-related genetic variations can alter the production of antioxidant protective molecules. Therefore, your DNA result is the only convincing indicator of your body's antioxidant capabilities.


-- Sensitivity and inflammation

Changes in relevant genes can lead to excessive inflammation – one of the most common issues in early aging.

Have you ever wondered why your skin becomes more sensitive in winter? Or why does your skin react with pimples when it's hot? What about a rash or rosacea after applying perfumes or skin care products?

Much of this redness and tenderness is stimulated by your body's first defense mechanism - inflammation.

Our genetic predisposition plays an important role in the supply or oversupply of inflammatory mechanisms. Changes in this category may reflect reactive inflammatory mechanisms that lead to skin irritation.
