A Closer Look at Skin Health
The increased prevalence of skin cancer in recent decades and our culture's obsession with looking forever young has created a heightened awareness that exposure to the sun can produce both acute and chronic changes in the skin.
At a cellular level, solar radiation can produce adverse structural and functional changes in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). Mitochondria, the powerhouses of our cells, are the major site for the generation of cellular oxidative stress and play a key role in controlling cell death (apoptosis). Damage to mtDNA is a known and important contributor to human aging, cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.
With world-leading research into mtDNA, Mitomics has applied our Mitomic Technology™ platform, which utilizes mtDNA-based biomarkers, to the skin care field. Featuring this novel technology, our Skin Physical and Skin Care Mitomic Tests are advanced dermatological solutions for patients, medical providers and manufacturers of skin and sun care products.
