When it comes to skincare, even the very best, most highly educated clinicians can sometimes struggle to get things right. After all, everyone is so uniquely different and what works perfectly for one person, won’t for someone else.
But what if some of the guesswork and trial and error could be eliminated?
This is where SkinDNA comes in.
The SkinDNA test gives us science backed information to work with that is based on your very own DNA.
Although our treatments and home care regimens are already highly targeted and tailored to you, this allows us to further fine tune and enhance that bespoke approach – in turn resulting in potentially far better, more effective and efficient treatments and results.
Pricing + Information
SkinDNA™ is a revolutionary DNA laboratory test that examines 16 genetic markers (SNPs) in 5 categories associated with skin aging.
- Firmness + Elasticity
- Wrinkling (A.G.E.)
- Sun Damage + Pigmentation
- Free Radical Damage
- Sensitivity + Inflammation
We swab the inside of your check, complete a quick consult form and post it off to a lab for testing.
Within 1-2 weeks, we will receive a comprehensive report containing the details of your test.
Your results are then used to create a unique skin prescription and regimen tailored specifically to you.
The test can be completed in clinic during normal business hours. No appointment necessary.
If you decide to invest in your skins future with us, you’ll receive $50 credit towards the purchase of any prescribed skincare or professional in-clinic treatments of $300 or more.
I’m only in my 20’s. Is this test still for me?
This test is absolutely for you!
It is designed for early awareness and intervention so the sooner you take the test and identify your genetic predispositions, the sooner you can start working on correcting them.
Prevention is far better than a cure!
Frequently Asked Questions
Your DNA sample may be retained by SkinDNA for up to seven (7) days after your saliva sample is processed (for re-testing if necessary), at which time your sample is sent to the isolation Bay where we undergo the process of permanently erasing any remaining DNA through incineration.
If you’re under the age of 18, then you will need your parent or guardian’s consent.
If you over the age of 18, then you can complete this test whenever you like. The sooner you complete it, the sooner you can start working on correcting predispositions.
Since the finalisation of the Human Genome Project in 2003, SkinDNA™ Scientists have been hard at work to uncover the human skin’s unique genetic blueprint. In 2008 the search led to a remarkable discovery of 15 genetic markers that played a role in skin protection, premature aging and determined the future outcomes of our skin. This remarkable discovery unleashed a new era in personalized skin medicine.
Each category outcome is made on a proprietary graduated scale of 0.001 to 1 referred to as the Mazy Scale™.
Your SkinDNA™ Genetic Test Results utilise proprietary DG-Theorem™ to develop a personal guide for building a complete, custom tailored skincare regimen that allows you to achieve optimal long term skin health.
We are surrounded by more health advice than ever, but what’s really right for you?
In the past we could only answer this question in a very general way, and everyone got the same recommendation on nutrition and skin health.
Now, you can advance beyond one-size-fits-all suggestions. The skin health insights from your SkinDNA™ test results 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 are 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, than the SkinDNA™ test is for you.
The Mazy Scale™ is a numerical classification schema based on a graduated scale of 0.001 to 1 to visually represent the skins genetic risk factors portrayed across the skin aging processes of skin.
It was developed by SkinDNA experts as a way to classify the response of different types of skin based on various genetic outcomes and other external factors including race and lifestyle factors.
It remains a recognized tool for dermatologic research into skin aging and genetic outcomes and is featured on every SkinDNA™ Genetic Test Report.
