Even before the signs have become visible, the GenetiConcept™ skin DNA test identifies if you carry any key SNPs (genetic variations) associated with expedited skin's collagen loss.

Your collagen production is key when it comes to keeping your skin looking plump, young & wrinkle-free. Collagen is a type of protein that provides the skin with smoothness, strength, resilience & elasticity. Not only it is produced by the skin cells but also by other parts of the body such as blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, etc... Of equal importance in the total make-up of collagen metabolism is the extremely complex process of collagen breakdown. Collagen molecule undergoes continuous turnover. It is synthesized and then broken-down on an ongoing basis throughout your entire life. When you are younger, your skin is likely to produce much more collagen than it loses. That's why a baby's skin is intact and this skin remains elastic and moisturized. But when you are getting older (>40 years), collagen loss can significantly accelerate, leading to a decline in the appearance of your skin but also your health (don't forget, collagen is a building block of many other tissues such as blood vessels).

Our DNA plays a big role in determining both the speed of collagen production and breakdown. Key genetic variant inside the collagen gene can identify your balance between collagen production and collagen breakdown. Scientific researchs on dermagenetics suggest that different skin-care needs depend on the naturally occurring individuals genes polymorphism (through a skin dna test). Skin-care therapies or products for people who have a higher collagen loss should be more concentrated in collagen strengthtening foods/ingredients than the cosmetics aimed at those with a lower collagen loss. This is not only due to the fact that they present a reduced natural loss, but also because of their lower collagen loss, they could be damaged by an excess of collagen production. (Excessive collagen production can affect blood vessels, joints, deposition in the anterior segment of the eye, etc...)

Most people never heard about glycation. We all know that for some people, when it comes to our bodies, sugar consumption is a sly villain. It could also be a villain for your skin through a process called glycation.

Glycation process is in fact, a fact of life. The truth is that it is happening right now, to all of us. Glycation is significantly implicated in expedited skin aging by causing elastin & collagen fibers to decrease their ability to function normally.

But what is glycation? As you may probably know, sugar is the body's main fuel. When you have sugar in your body, it bombards your cells like a meteor shower. When sugar levels in the body exceed, protein molecules can cross-link with sugar molecules. This chemical-bridge leads to the creation of a new sugar proteins called AGEs (advanced glycation end products). Our bodies don't recognize these AGEs molecules as normal. That's why the body will produce different kinds of antibodies that cause inflammation in the skin. Moreover, these AGEs will also gravitate toward skin collagen and elastin, causing the collagen to become brittle and less elastic, which causes the skin to age. That's why individuals who have diabetes issues tend to have a poor skin quality.

Scientific researchs on dermagenetics found that our DNA plays a big role in determining serum glucose levels, especially the glycation process, suggesting that a skin dna test is the best method to prevent any glycation process. In addition to our analysis of your carbohydates (sugar) metabolism, we will also analyse key genetic variants involved in preventing glycation of your skin and provide personal recommandations to avoid this.

Did you know that UV rays are the biggest contributor to premature wrinkled & aging? Your DNA highly affects your skin response to these rays.

Apart from being significantly life-threatening (for example, skin cancer), the sun UV rays also expedite the aging process. The scientific word used to describe the UV damages on our skin is "photoaging." Scientific studies have shown that chronic exposures to UV rays impair the synthesis of new collagen and lead to a significant break-down of elastin fibers & collagen. Without these connective tissues (elastin and collagen) our skin loses its elasticity and quality.

However, scientific studies also demonstrate that the aging process through UV rays is highly variable between individuals. This is due to the fact that our DNA plays a big role. Our genetics determine how our skin fibers can naturally cope under the strains of these UV rays. The GenetiConcept skin DNA Test identifies your skin natural protection abilities against sun exposure, thus, allowing us to give you a truly personalized premium recommandations based on your genetic make-up.

A term that have become unavoidable is free radical, which is now believed by the scientific community to be the causal factor for many health conditions... including skin ageing !

Free radicals are highly reactive short-specimens that can impair any structure in our body -including the body's largest organ- the skin. These free radicals are created through many factors such as pollution, smocking, sun exposure, exercise, etc... Skin damage done by free radicals may appear in various forms such as changes in skin color (broken blood vessels and brown spots) and wrinkles & ageing as a result of collagen and elastin fibers damage.

The best way to stop these free radicals from hurting your body, is to consume enough antioxidants via foods or supplements. Antioxidants are molecules that can transfer an electron to a free radical molecule so that the free radical molecule does not have to take this electron from the skin's fibers. We all already heard about these famous anti-oxidants, found in foods like vegetables, berries and other fruits, and dietary supplements like vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, but the reality is that the world's most powerful anti-oxidant... is not in a food or supplement, it's found in your own body! Let's take an example: GPx-1 gene (encoding Glutathione-peroxidise) and SOD2 gene (encoding Superoxide-Dismutase2) are ones of the most strongest anti-oxidants available within the human body.

A various numbers of DNA variations indicate the alteration of the production of these powerful natural antioxidants. Your GenetiConcept skin DNA test score is a powerful indicator of your natural antioxidant ability.

Inflammation is one of the biggest theme when it comes to skin aging and skin disorders. Learn how you can manage your skin inflammation according to your genetic make-up, trough a simple GenetiConcept Skin DNA test.

Cold weather or hot weather causes problems to your skin? Rosacea, redness, or itching when applying any skincare product? Skin sensitive to air polution? For your skin and body, inflammation is a natural short-term defensive reaction in reponse to foreigh substances such as toxins, bacteria, etc... Without this extremely important process, your skin would not have the ability to protect itself.

But there is a little issue... sometimes the body releases to many inflammatory molecules to take care of an issue that only required fewer. This constant over supply of inflammation could lead to a significant skin ageing process, and many other skin issues such as rosacea, skin rash, etc...

Various genes in this dermagenetics chapter can be used to strongly identify your inflammatory proteins production causing unnecessary skin aging and skin issues. This excess could lead to an increased redness, prolonged irritation, or/and enhanced sensitivity to everyday chemicals and environmental pollutants.


Let's take your skincare regimen to the next level!

Many shop assistants and dermatologists would rather prescribe a skincare based upon whether your skin is normal, oily or dry. Do you think it's enough? Your skin's system is much more complexe. The right skin-care regimen can only be optimised by discovering scientifically and deeply your skin properties through a skin DNA test.
