What Role Do Genetics Play on the Skin and Body? Find Out at the Dr Lanzer Clinic!
Genetics play a big role in many areas of medicine, particularly cosmetic surgery. Many cosmetic problems are related to genetics; this may include the accumulation of persistent fats, premature signs of ageing, and other problems. To discover the link between genetics and various cosmetic problems, please read the information provided by the Dr Lanzer Clinic below.
Do Genetics Play a Role in Common Aesthetic Problems Such as Tired Eyes?
Many patients who suffer from tired eyes will tell Dr Lanzer one of their parents suffered from the same problem. They also state that they start to resemble their parents more as they age, especially when looking at photographs.
There are more common cosmetic problems that have been related to genetics; this includes an accumulation of persistent fat in the neck, enlarged breasts, premature ageing, and more. Even though there can be other reasons for these problems to develop, there can be a genetic component for many patients.
What Other Factors Could Play a Role in Common Cosmetic Problems?
Aside from the genetic factor, there are other things that could cause some common cosmetic problems. One common factor with cosmetic problems is smoking, which is known to cause signs of premature ageing.
Another factor that could contribute to cosmetic problems is an environmental factor such as sunlight exposure; therefore, it is important to always wear appropriate sunblock when you are out and about.
Of course, there can be an additional genetic component with sun damage. People with a fair skin, for example who are of Irish or English background, tend to get sun damage much more easily.
Does Dr Lanzer Perform Similar Treatments on Family Members?
The genetic component in certain cosmetic problems does make it more common for family members to have similar treatments at the Dr Lanzer Clinic. Dr Lanzer often treats family members for comparable problems.
While there are some major differences between patients who are related to one another, often the core problem is the same. For example, you can have two patients who are sisters, both suffering from persistent fats. One of the sisters may have an overall bigger build, but both sisters may have the same problem with persistent fats in various areas.
How Can I Determine My Cosmetic Problem Is Genetic?
Most patients will find it difficult to determine if a cosmetic problem is genetic or not. However, if members of your family display a similar problem, then a genetic component is likely.
