Collagen makes up 75% of the dry skin. Your genetic predisposition plays a major role in determining the collagen production and degradation rate.
In the youth, the body produces more collagen than losing, but after 40 years it may be possible to increase collagen degradation and cause skin appearance changes and health changes. This process is characterized by a protein called MMP1 or collagenase.
Genetic tests can determine whether or not collagen production and degradation processes balanced, whether or not increased collagen degradation process that may cause premature aging, swelling and stretch marks of the skin.
Glycation plays a vital role in the accelerated aging of the skin and is described as skin caramel from outside to the inside. Glycation can be produced, when excess glucose binds to the collagen and elastin fibers of the skin and modify them both structurally and functionally. The resulting products are known as advanced glycation products. Cross-linking can form a chemical bridge between these proteins.
Genetic test can identify the genetic traits that can destroy the normal levels of glucose and energetic metabolism. Our body uses glucose as the main source of energy, but if it is not properly metabolized, glycation may be developed.
A genetic test will help you identify:
Based on the test, we will prepare a personal recommendation for you that will help you to reduce risks.
