No. There is no need to retake the SkinDNA™ Genetic Test as your genes will never change. In terms of this type of DNA test, your DNA is the same throughout your entire life. This is a once in a lifetime investment that will ensure you never waste a single cent again on products and treatments.
No matter what age you are, it is never too late to focus on the future health of your skin.
SkinDNA takes value in the trust you place in us. To prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, to retain data accuracy, and to ensure the use of the information, we use a range of technical, physical and administrative measures to protect the information we collect about our members.
We will Never share your personal information.
Your DNA sample may be retained by SkinDNA for up to seven (7) days after your saliva sample is processed (for re-testing if necessary), at which time your sample is sent to the isolation bay where we undergo the disposal process.
In the past we could only answer this question in a very general way, everyone got the same recommendation on nutrition and skin health. Now, you can advance beyond one-size-fits-all suggestions. The skin health insights from your SkinDNA ™ Genetic Test Results can point you toward the prevention measures most suited to you. Even if you followed everybody’s advice to the letter, no-one is able to accurately predict how your skin will age just by looking at you.
If you are overwhelmed with contradicting advice about what’s best for your skin’s health and future, if you need motivation to maintain the long term health and quality of your skin, or if you just find it easier and more realistic to focus on areas where your skin is genetically weaker, then the SkinDNA ™ Genetic Test is for you.
Although you could purchase and use a wide variety of skincare products, most skin care professionals would agree that this is neither economical, nor practical. By understanding your skin’s predispositions – from a DNA perspective – we are able to identify the right things you should be using an individualised skincare program specifically for you!
This targeted approach (rather than a shotgun, or one-size fits- all skincare approach) ultimately helps save you time, money and more importantly focuses your skincare regimen on key areas that are important to your individual skin’s physiology.
Absolutely, we are fortunate enough today, in that the science of skincare has progressed so far we had no problems finding ingredients capable of slowing down Collagen Breakdown, Sun Damage, Oxidation, Glycation and Inflammation. It’s just a matter of knowing which ingredients are best suited for each individual’s gene type to help tackle their skin aging problems.
Since the finalisation of the Human Genome Project in 2003, SkinDNA™ Scientists have been hard at work to uncover the human skin’s unique genetic blueprint. In 2008 the search led to a remarkable discovery of 15 genetic markers that played a role in skin protection, premature aging and determined the future outcomes of our skin. This remarkable discovery unleashed a new era in personalized skin medicine.
Each category outcome is made on a proprietary graduated scale of 0.001 to 1 referred to as the Mazy Scale™.
Your SkinDNA™ Genetic Test Results utilise our proprietary DG-Theorem™ to develop a personal guide for building a complete, custom tailored skincare regimen that allows you to achieve optimal long term skin health.
The Mazy Scale™ is a numerical classification schema based on a graduated scale of 0.001 to 1 to visually represent the skins genetic risk factors portrayed across the skin aging processes of skin. It was developed by SkinDNA experts as a way to classify the response of different types of skin based on various genetic outcomes and other external factors including race and lifestyle factors.
It remains a recognized tool for dermatologic research into skin aging and genetic outcomes and is featured on every SkinDNA™ Genetic Test Report as well as its “White Label” solutions – where SkinDNA has assisted in co-branding or rebranding for distribution.
Whilst the SkinDNA™ Genetic Test can be used as an analytical tool, it is the first to introduce solid predictability. Our ability to predict the future of the client’s skin based on their DNA forms the cornerstone of what we’re all about.
If we talk about dependability as the scientific accuracy of the process, it’s as predictable as can be, currently 99.96%. There is that small margin for error however we have technical measures in place to ensure very high accuracy.
Your genes play a big role on skin outcomes, it’s also important to realise that genes are not the only determinate, one’s lifestyle and diet can also play a role too. For example, based on a client’s SkinDNA ™ Genetic Test Results – if they at increased risk to collagen breakdown, it does not necessarily mean that they will definitely come across this problem in later years – if they are also careful with their lifestyle choices.
The SkinDNA™ test empowers individuals and their skincare professionals with the information needed to make more educated decisions about their skin care needs. The key being prevention, SkinDNA™ is designed for early awareness and intervention before the problem strikes.
Consumers are faced with bewildering choice in what has become a trillion dollar skincare market. The SkinDNA™ Test helps take the guess work away. If a client has a genetic variation making them more prone to wrinkling then one should focus more efforts on ingredients that target that particular issue before the signs even begin to appear. The great thing about a genetic profile is that it will never change; the results will apply for the rest of your life.
Our technology is being implemented all around the world as a tool to allow customers to come back to their skincare professionals for the correct advice and skincare tools, rather than rely on internet advice which may not be correct for them.
