No. There is no need to retake the Cosmogene Genetic test your genes will never change. In terms of testing DNA, your DNA is the same throughout your entire life. This is a once in a lifetime investment that will ensure you never waste a single cent again on products and treatments.

If we talk about dependability as the scientific accuracy of the process, it’s as predictable as can be, currently 99.96%. There is that small margin for error however we have technical measures in place to ensure very high accuracy.

Your genes play a big role on skin outcomes, it’s also important to realize that genes are not the only determinate, one’s lifestyle and diet can also play a role too. For example, based on a client’s results if they are more prone to wrinkling it does not necessarily mean that they will definitely come across this problem in later years - if they are also careful with their lifestyle choices.

We identify genetic factors only – what you do on the outside also impacts your skin. For example you may be genetically low risk in Collagen Breakdown, but how is your lifestyle? do you run or jog or cycle? These types of motions can cause gravity to strike faster.

Low risk in Skin Sensitivity? External factors to consider – are you using active skincare products that can strip the skin? Are you over exfoliating the skin?

These are the types of things to consider if you score Low but have all the symptoms.

No matter what age you are, it is never too late to focus on the future health of your skin.

Genetically your results are accurate. Cosmogene can help to identify risk factors at a DNA level. What you do on the outside matters too.

For example high risk in Wrinkling / Glycation and no visible signs?

Things to consider – do you have a low sugar diet? Have you been a regular skincare user? What sort of interventions have you experienced.

These are the types of things to consider if you score Low but have all the symptoms.

Cosmogene Genetic test was developed to allow patients to understand what skin areas they should focus on as a priority.

While Low Risk categories are still of importance, our algorithms determine that the lower risk categories should be something as a secondary step to be discussed with a professional at a time when you have targeted the higher priority categories.

Our research has identified 4 kinds of patients in our field that are ideal candidates for taking a DNA test:

Emotionally Distressed – these are patients that question and wonder if what they are doing is right for their skin.

Proactive– those who realise the power of prevention and want to take action now before it’s too late. These people are aged generally between 20 and 40 years.

Knowledge Driven– patients who are driven by wanting to understand every aspect of themselvesand this is growing at an exponential rate.

The Confused– patients who do not know what to use for their skin – who may think soap is just as good, or have a cupboard full of failed promises and are struggling to find what is right for them.
