See your SkinDNA™ specialist at Diva. Take the 2 minute DNA test today and see how you will age genetically.
Gone are the days where the one-size fits all skins recommendations. SkinDNA™ takes the guesswork out of skincare, instead using science to identify the most suitable skin ingredients and treatment modalities based on YOUR DNA .
Your environment, diet, medication and general lifestyle definitely plays a KEY role in how you’ll age but, 50% is also your genetics. Sure families can be similar but, each of us have our own genetic code and the only way to discover for sure how that will determine your future skin is by getting a simple saliva test done. There is no need to ever get a second DNA test done. This test is a once in a lifetime investment as the SNP’s found in your genes will never change. Your DNA is the same though-out your entire life.
Why should I test my DNA?
We are surrounded with more advice than ever but what’s really right for you? 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 skinDNA™ test can point you toward the prevention measures most suited to YOU. Even if you followed everyone’s advice to the letter, no-one is able to accurately predict how your skin will age just by looking at you. If you’re confused, 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™ test is for YOU!
Am I too old to take the SkinDNA™ test?
No matter what age you are, it is never too late to focus on the future health of your skin. Knowing your skin’s genetic predispositions to key dermatological factors is an investment in your skin’s long term health. Taking this test you can then take action to detect skin conditions early, reduce their effects and even prevent them entirely.
How do you take the SkinDNA™ test?
It’s surprising easy, your DNA therapist will collect a saliva sample from the inside of your cheek with our easy-to-use DNA Collector. The sample is then analysed at the accredited lab. Results take around 2 weeks. You simply rebook an appointment and together with your therapist your results we be explained to you and your 8 page report will be printed out ready for you to take home. This way you have the hard copy report to keep so you always know the BEST ingredients and treatments suited exactly to your very own skin DNA.
SkinDNA™ is revolutionary DNA laboratory test that examines 16 genetic markers (SNPs) in 5 categories associated with skin aging:
affecting collagen and elastin fibers, glycation is now well recognised to be a leading cause of accelerated skin aging. Our genetic predispositions play a big role in determining serum glucose levels. Glucose is the sugar your body uses as its main source of fuel. If not metabolised properly, glucose can bind to your skin’s collagen and elastin fibers, forming abnormal chemical bridges that cause tissue damage. This process, called glycation, causes your skin to become rigid and lose elasticity. Glycation also impairs your skin’s ability to regenerate, which leads to skin laxity, cracking, thinning and redness.
Help identify if you are a carrier of key genetic variations associated with accelerated collagen loss even before the signs have become visible. Our genetic predispositions play a big role in determining both the speed of collagen production and breakdown. Key variations can identify is the rise and fall of collagen is in balance, or if the breakdown of collagen predominates, which can result in the appearance of premature wrinkling, aging and sagging of the skin.
The sun’s UV rays are one of the most significant causes of premature aging. Your genes play an important role in determining how well your skin can naturally cope under the strains of the sun. The skinDNA™ test can reveal if your skin has a greater or lesser natural genetic solar protection factor and based on your results can provide you with a unique, enhanced skin care protection strategy that is specially designed to provide the utmost protection for your skin based on your genes.
Scientists now believe that free radicals are causal factors in nearly every known disease, from heart disease to arthritis,cancer to cataracts. Free radicals are a major culprit in the aging process of the skin itself. Not all people have the same amount of these powerful free radical scavengers. A number of skin related genetic variations have been found to alter the production of antioxidant protecting molecules, and your SkinDNA™ score is the single most powerful indication of your body’s genetic antioxidant abilities.
Excessive inflammation is one of the common themes in early onset skin aging. While it is a helpful response in the short term, if inflammation continues, it can play a negative role. Often subtle, the signs include skin sensitivity, redness and irritation. Genetic variations in this category can be used to identify whether you are at risk of too much inflammation causing unnecessary trauma to skin cells. The result of excessive inflammation includes prolonged irritation, increased redness and enhanced sensitivity to environmental pollutants and everyday chemicals.
