Our smart sticker lets you test your skin’s genes
Most UV damage can’t be seen by the naked eye — not even by a dermatologist — because it starts deep within your skin’s cells. But Luminate can detect it. An easy at-home test, Luminate uses DermTech’s patented smart sticker to lift a sample from your skin, then analyzes it to find abnormalities at the DNA level accurately and objectively. Way before damage shows on your skin. While there’s still time to repair, and restore and proactively change your habits. With Luminate’s smart sticker and advanced genomic analysis, you now have the tools to truly know your skin, and the power to take control of its care.
To use Luminate, you first take a Luminate SkinPrint with our state of the art smart stickers that easily and painlessly remove skin tissue for testing. All you do is press, rub, and lift. There are four stickers to test four specific areas of your face — forehead, nose and each cheek.
Next you’ll send your Luminate SkinPrint to DermTech’s Gene Lab, the first and only commercial lab to extract nucleic acid from non-invasive skin samples. There, the sample is analyzed to find changes to key genes that indicate UV damage.
In 3-5 days, you get back your personalized Luminate Report. Not only does it indicate your actual level of UV damage at the DNA level, it gives you personalized, science-based recommendations on how to restore and repair that damage.
Learn What Your Skin Says
Luminate’s patented test analyzes four specific genes for DNA mutations: TP53, NOTCH1, NOTCH2, and CDKN2A. These indicate abnormalities and signs of UV damage. In your report, this information is aggregated into your skin score, which indicates your UV damage level — low, moderate, or high — information that is crucial to knowing proven steps to take to restore and repair your skin.
Get Objective, Science-Based Treatments
The main benefit of knowing your exact level of UV damage is that you can take actual, objective steps to restore and repair it. Your report will outline these recommendations based on your personal Luminate skin score threshold.
You can expect to find specific recommendations across two areas: preventing future damage (like sunblocks and diet adjustments), and restoring damaged skin (like supplements, topical creams, peels or laser treatments).
“Luminate measures UV damage in normal looking skin to asses future skin cancer risk and skin aging, allowing people to seek appropriate treatments and better manage their skin health.”
“Luminate will help us get to the scene of the crime almost before it takes place.”
“Luminate is a powerful tool that puts consumers in the driver’s seat.”
