HomeDNA™ Skin Care is a science-based DNA test that identifies your skin’s genetic potential in seven key areas

SKINCARE DECODED

Learn about collagen quality, skin elasticity, fine lines & wrinkles, sun protection, pigmentation, skin antioxidants, and sensitivity. Our comprehensive genetic report gives you personalized recommendations—based for topical ingredients, such as vitamin C or hyaluronic acid, supplements like Vitamin D and fish oil, or treatments — chemical peels, fillers, and more.

COLLAGEN QUALITY

Collagen makes up approximately 75% of skin, and youthful skin is in large part because of healthy collagen levels. While collagen production naturally occurs throughout our lives the quality and quantity varies. Some of the signs associated with collagen quality: sagging, scarring, healing issues, hollowing, accelerated aging, and fine lines.

SKIN ELASTICITY

After approximately 40 years of age, skin elasticity can decline due to a group of enzymes called MMPs. MMPs can increase structural damage to the skin and create imbalances that can lead to unstable collagen support leading to loss of skin and structure: increased collagen breakdown, sagging, jowls, nasolabial folds, healing issues, and premature wrinkling.

FINE LINES & WRINKLES

Fine lines and wrinkles are also formed from Advanced Glycation End (AGE) products. AGEs have the ability to target and stick to collagen and elastin fibers causing them to become rigid and brittle. The effects of glycation at a skin’s cellular level may result in wrinkling, hardened collagen fibers, loss of elasticity, and compromised skin barrier functions.

SUN PROTECTION

Your body is equipped with natural responses that help to break down photo products once they have penetrated your skin. A photochemical process helps assist in breaking down UV rays before they can do any major damage. Some of the signs associated with this category: fine lines and wrinkles, crepe-like/thinning skin, sun sensitivity, skin thickening/leathery skin.

PIGMENTATION

Melanin helps protect your skin by absorbing damaging UV rays when you are exposed to the sun. As melanin production increases, skin will begin to tan and darken. The cause of most irregular skin pigmentation is either an over or under production of melanin in the body. Signs associated with this category are: freckles, age spots, rough skin, texture, and discoloration.

SKIN ANTIOXIDANTS

Premature skin aging is also influenced by free radical activity within the body. Free radicals are harmful molecules produced naturally from environmental exposures, and antioxidants help break down their damaging effects. Signs associated with this category are: dull skin, uneven tone, blemishes, pigmentation, wrinkles, premature skin aging, and skin dehydration.

SKIN SENSITIVITY

Skin sensitivities can create stress and trauma to the dermis that can lead to tired and aged cells. Understanding sensitivity allows you to keep your skin as stress free as possible. Signs associated with this category: skin dehydration, active ingredient sensitivities, fragrance sensitivities, itching and redness, environmental sensitivities, and premature aging.

Revolutionary skincare

HomeDNA™ Skin Care is a revolutionary DNA analysis and report that examines your genetic markers (SNPs) related to skin performance. With the remarkable advances in understanding the human genome, it's now possible to decipher your skin’s genetic profile and make informed treatment recommendations. The days of guessing which regimen will work best for you and feeling overwhelmed are over.

Due to state regulations, currently not available in New York and Maryland. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

The Human Genome Project was completed in 2003 and a group of scientists began uncovering the human skin's unique genetic blueprint. In 2008, their research led to the discovery of 15 genetic markers that played a role in skin protection and premature aging. Since then, an additional 17 genetic skin markers have been discovered, opening up a new era in personalized skin management.HomeDNA™Healthy Skin DNA is a scientifically-based DNA test that examines 28 genetic markers (SNPs) in 7 categories associated with skin aging. Each category is graded on a proprietary scale.

The scale in the report is based on an algorithmic calculation and is used to visually represent genetic risk factors skin-aging processes. It is used as a way to classify the response of different types of skin based on various genetic outcomes and other external factors, including ethnicity and lifestyle factors.

Yes. The skin health insights from your DNA test 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're overwhelmed with contradictory advice about what's best for your skin; 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 this test is a great resource. You no longer have to waste money guessing what works best for you!

No matter what age you are, it is never too late to focus on the future health of your skin.

While the HomeDNA Healthy Skin 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 this test is all about.
