Do you have a bathroom cupboard overflowing with cosmetic products? Have you tried everything, but are still unsure if what you’re using is the best for your skin?
Well, worry no more! We can take all the guesswork out of achieving optimum skin health. There’ll be no more trial and error, no more expensive mistakes, just great skin fully customised for you.
HOW IT WORKS
The process itself is very simple, a swab from the inside of your cheek is sent off to our laboratory for processing and testing. The sample is then analysed to see what short, specific DNA sequences called Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNAPs) say about what your skin needs. The test will provide data on your predisposition for collagen production or destruction, inflammation control, sun exposure risk and antioxidant protection.
What Is SkinDNA?
SkinDNA is a revolutionary DNA laboratory test that examines 16 genetic markers (SNPs) in five categories associated with skin ageing.
Firmness and Elasticity
Are you genetically predisposed to premature wrinkling?
Supporting skin damage through a process called glycation.
Sun Damage and Pigmentation
How well are you intrinsically protected from the sun?
Free Radical Damage
Are you genetically protected against free radicals?
Sensitivity and Inflammation
How well are your genes protecting you against irritation?
Your DNA results are used to scientifically create a personal guide to provide you with a unique regime tailored specially for you. This allows you to advance beyond the ‘one size fits all’ suggestions – using the right skincare ingredients targeted to your own genetic blueprint.
We know that not every skincare product is going to suit everyone, no matter how much the cosmetic industry tells you so. And this is why there are SO many brands out there and literally thousands of different products.
So come and see us at Louise Gray Skin Care for your very own SkinDNA. We can use science to identify the most suitable skincare ingredients — based on your DNA.
