No, although there is an “increased risk”, there are many factors that contribute to developing a certain condition. In addition to genetics many factors such as exercise, sun exposure, diet, age, medications and other environmental factors can impact your risk of a particular condition. This test can help determine the genetic component to better inform you and your provider in regard to modifying the other factors you have control over.
Although genetics helps determine overall risk for winkles and collagen degradation, environmental factors such as gravity, passage of time, UV exposure, and smoking can also have a significant impact.
Avoidance of things like UV light from sun exposure or tanning can reduce the risk for wrinkles. In addition, the use of sunscreen can be of benefit. In addition, with the consultation of a dermatologist there are a number of oral and topical treatments as well as procedures that can be performed to reduce formation of and presence of wrinkles.
No, just strictly having an “increased sun sensitivity result” does not mean that you will always burn in the sun, only that you are at a greater risk to do so. Conversely, someone with a normal sun sensitivity result is still at risk to burn in the sun. An increased use of sunscreen especially over SPF 30 is recommended to reduce the risk of sunburn.
Avoidance of long exposure to direct sunlight, especially without sunscreen can increase the risk, so avoiding these exposures can be beneficial.
Other factors that contribute to cellulite formation include hormone changes, gender, ethnicity, age, and weight changes.
