Imagine if you can recommend skincare products specifically suited to your client’s genetic make-up, or perform skin treatments using parameters determined by their DNA. It may sound like something from science fiction, but thanks to recent research in genomics it’s now become a reality.

Today, the field of cosmetic dermatology is on the brink of a scientific revolution. Thanks to recent advancements in the field of personal genomics, it has now become possible to take a genetic test to assess an individuals DNA; revealing their genetic propensity to intrinsic skin aging. This information can be used to empower individuals to make health-promoting lifestyle and dietary changes, and help skin professionals make more informed treatment choices.


The company privately profiled the action of 6,347 genes and – using genome wide association studies – they discovered more than 200 abnormal gene traits in the form of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) implicated in the health and wellbeing skin.


Most significant was the prevalence of some of the SNPs and the effect they had on the skin. Some f the findings include – thirty percent of the population were found to have a specific 2G2G polymorphism in the Matrix Metalloprotease one Gene – increasing their predisposition to increased collagen breakdown;

Polymorphisms in the ERC22 genes which having a population prevalence of 27 per cent, was associated with increased sensitivity to sunlight and heightened sunlight induced skin damage


The implications of these findings are vast. Not only have these findings allowed physicians and skin professionals to incorporate a cutting-edge genomics test into the care of its patients, it has also provided the tools to pave the way for new strategies for diagnosis, treatment and prevention plans. As the skin’s aging mechanisms are further identified, and further insights into the underlying processes of skin aging emerge, better strategies to prevent the undesirable effects if skin aging will change the way we care for our skin. SkinDNA is leading the way.

Aesthetic Medicine Conference 2012 – London


Professional Beauty boasts a fantastic seminar programme bringing cutting edge trends, and new advancements from the industry.

Conference Bio

Stefan has helped implement SkinDNA Technology across Asia, UK, USA, Canada, Brazil and Australia.

Stefan has developed a comprehensive understanding of many medical aesthetic procedures for dermatological applications. These include Electro-optical Synergy (Elos), Intense Pulse Light (IPL), Light emitting diode (LED), Fractional, bi-polar RF and Infrared technologies. This combined knowledge along with his widespread understanding of genetics, its implications it plays with dermal protection, his across-the-board understanding of cosmeceuticals and its roles in dermal responses, has gained him a sound understanding of the skin始s aging processors and its biological responses.

His hands on approach to life始s challenges has allowed him to find his creative edge for marketing efforts, information interpretation, and in educating.

Stefan has a unique passion for the industry. His experiences accompanied by his ability and confidence to educate, train and captivate an audience with his unique speaking and learning styles, has gained him the advantage to talk, coach and implement anti-aging strategies in all degrees of dermal protection.

He holds 3 fundamental beliefs:

1) That he can make a difference by influencing and coaching one person at a time,
2) Prevention is the real key to ageless skin, and
3) Everyone can live beautifully longer.

Join Stefan to learn an overview of the following areas: What is DNA? What are Genes? What are Chromosomes? What are SNP’s and how it all links together.
