NEW ORLEANS -- Do 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: free radical damage, sun damage and pigmentation, glycation wrinkling, firmness and elasticity, and sensitivity and inflammation.

It’s important to get your skin DNA analyzed.
