Our skin

In our DNA test about the skin, dermagenomics, you get information about the genetic predisposition to acne, UV sensitivity and intrinsic house aging. We examine your DNA for these components and provide information and advice based on your genetic profile. The largest organ The skin is the largest organ of our body and the essential […]

Predisposition to acne

Predisposition to acne

In our DNA skin test we can show whether you have an (increased)  predisposition for acne. There are several genes that influence this. What is acne? What we normally call acne is officially called acne vulgaris. It is one of the most common skin complaints and affects almost 10% of the world population. It arises, […]

Skin aging

Skin aging

The degree of UV sensitivity of the skin is determined by the rate of  skin aging. This is under the influence of repeated exposure to UV radiation from the sun and tanning beds. UV sensitivity is different from chronological (normal) aging in that UV rays affect the healthy, functional structures of the skin. The influence […]

UV sensitivity

UV sensitivity

Sunlight consists of different types of radiation, one of which is ultraviolet radiation (UV radiation). It is important that we protect ourselves against this. For example, based on your genetic profile, you can see that you have a normal predisposition to skin aging as a result of exposure to UV radiation. We can also indicate […]

Light or dark: the development of pigment spots

Light or dark: the development of pigment spots

As soon as the weather permits, many people prefer to enjoy themselves on the terrace. And of course in that one spot in the sun. But it is good to remember that the sun can bring about its ultraviolet (UV) light effects. The occurrence of pigmentation spots is one of them. What is pigment? Every person, […]

Intrinsic skin aging

Intrinsic skin aging

The intrinsic skin aging is that part of the aging process that is determined solely by internal (physiological) factors, such as our genes. As you get older, the skin becomes rougher and less elastic. This causes wrinkles and looseness, especially in thin skin, such as under the eyes. For some people, these effects will be more apparent […]
