Slow Your Ageing with DNA Testing in South Africa

Most people already know that certain environmental factors will bring on dreaded wrinkles faster than others, but what about how your genes affect how you age? Understanding your genetic profile may assist you in taking steps to ensure that the ageing stays away for longer.

Skincare to Reduce Signs of Ageing

GENERENEW™ is a gene test offered in South Africa that can give you insights into your intrinsic ageing factors. The professionals at Geneway will you assist you by analysing your DNA test results and then recommending a skin care routine to undo external ageing effects, as well as prevent those that are genetically inherent.

GENERENEW™, focuses on genetic factors for a young and healthy appearance. It looks at factors like:

Collagen synthesis

Collagen is an important component, not just for your skin. Collagen is a type of protein that holds the body together and occurs mainly in the skin, bones, and connective tissues. As the ageing process begins, collagen levels begin depleting, breaking down certain connections.

For your skin, specifically, this means that wrinkles will become more prominent. Your genetic profile can show how collagen synthesises in the body, and what adjustments need to be made to ensure the best results for your skin, and other bodily functions.

Skin anti-oxidation

Skin oxidation is a natural occurrence, as every cell in the body becomes exposed to external factors. Oxidation causes cell damage. Ways to prevent skin oxidation include taking antioxidants, as well as using a specialised skincare routine to slow it down. GENERENEW™ will recommend personalised options for slowing down skin oxidation.

Skin irritability

A DNA test can also analyse sensitivity, assisting with skin conditions like acne, eczema and other skin rashes that can cause an unsightly appearance of the skin.
