About why we need a genetic passport of the skin, says Maria belly, the ideologue and co-founder of an innovative wellness-resort “First Line. Health Care Resort”.
Ten years ago, DNA testing has become widely used in various fields of medicine. Today, the study of genes is one of the most promising and important trends in the beauty industry, replacing the hardware diagnostics of the skin.
The main disadvantage of hardware diagnostics is that the data obtained are quickly losing their relevance. Any new procedure or cream affect the skin condition, and so diagnosis will have to be repeated.
Professionals of the resort offer to go ahead and go back to the sources — to make a genetic passport of the skin, which allows to assess the efficiency of procedures and to select appropriate care.
Every skin is unique and requires an individual approach. The degree of moisture, tendency to inflammatory processes and diseases respond to different combinations of genes. Genetic testing allows you to explore these features and to give individual recommendations for different age periods.
Used for the analysis of a saliva sample, which experts define the condition as the upper layers of the epidermis and deep layers of the skin, where are the main processes of aging: synthesis and degradation of collagen and elastin — the proteins responsible for the youth and beauty of skin. Also examines the level of pigmentation, the condition of the vessels, the synthesis of hyaluronic acid and level of oxidative stress.
Once results are obtained, experts estimate combination or the activity of certain genes and make up a care programme according to age categories — what procedures are shown up to 30 years, 30-40 years and older. The program includes guidelines for active components — what vitamins and acids, peptides and other active substances should be part of care cosmetics. The list of treatments, advice on injection techniques and possible procedures: polishing, peels and others. Also provides information about supplements and nutrients recommended for maintaining healthy and youthful skin. Add to this an impressive list of recommendations on drinking regime and diet — what foods should be included in the diet, and what is contraindicated.
Who and why do it?
Medicine of the future is built on three main pillars – preventive (prophylactic) approach to gene technology, and personalization, that is, the development of tactics and strategies for rehabilitation for each individual person. The compilation of genetic passports of the skin is a unique study that will answer all questions about the preservation of beauty and rejuvenation.
Because the genetic passport is created only once in your life, it is better to do even at a young age and already on its basis to choose a plan of care with a beautician. With these data, a professional will be able to use all possibilities in order to slow down the aging process of the skin. Individually developed care plan skin thus permanently retain its youth and health.
