Frequently Asked Questions

How Does A SkinDNA Test Work?

Your DNA results are used to scientifically create a personalised and unique regime tailored specifically to you.  This allows you to advance beyond the ‘one-size-fits-all’ suggestions – using the most optimal skincare ingredients targeted to your own genetic blueprint.

How Is The SkinDNA Test Done?

The inside of your cheek will be swabbed to collect the necessary DNA and the sample is then sent directly to the SKINDNA™ laboratory for processing. Once complete, you will receive your SKINDNA™ report to uncover what your DNA reveals about your skin.

What Is Included In The SkinDNA Test?

The test includes the physical test at the clinic by a dedicated specialist as well as the delivery of your sample to the international SkinDNA laboratory for processing. It also includes a 10 page SkinDNA™ Report which contains useful information about your results as well as a bespoke treatment and home care skin plan created by one of our specialists.

Why Should I Have A SkinDNA Test?

SkinDNA™ presents you with the most accurate information available on how your skin is likely to age.  Gaining insight into your DNA can allow you to determine your skin’s genetic risks and take the right preventative steps to improve your skin’s future.

What Does The SkinDNA Test Test For?

  • SkinDNA™ examines Proprietary Combination of genetic markers (SNP’s or better known as ‘genetic weakness’s’) in 5 categories of skin aging.
