Beauty Tips with Dr. Burkenstock: Sun damage and your skin DNA

NEW ORLEANS -- Did you know that your genes determine how your skin ages?

Much like it determines whether you’re tall or short, if you know the differences in your genes, Dr. Kelly Burkenstock with Skin Body Health in Metairie and Mandeville can customize treatment protocol for your skin.

"If we find out where your genes may be weaker, we can actually halt the aging process," she says.

There are five main gene categories that determine the aging of your skin, and one of them is sun damage and pigmentation. If that portion of your DNA is weaker, Dr. B might recommend topical treatments like Gamma E, Tretinoin or Zinc Oxide.

That's why it's so important to have your skin DNA analyzed.
