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 sensitivity and inflammation. If this is a weakness for you, Dr. B could recommend several options for treatment.

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