What if my results are abnormal?
All test results are reviewed by a board certified physician and you will be contacted directly in the case of any critical value readings.
Should I share my results with my doctor?
Veracity always advises you to share and discuss your results with your healthcare provider. Our tests provide personalized information and education; they are not intended to diagnose any disease or condition or to substitute for professional medical advice or treatment. You should always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified healthcare provider with any questions you have regarding your medical care. We also recommend that you consult a physician about any concerns specifically related to your results.
What if I don’t know the first day of my last period?
If you are menstruating regularly, please do your best to estimate. A couple of days off will not be a problem. If you are not menstruating regularly you can complete your test on any day. Please note this when you complete your Skin + Health Profile.
Does the test work if I'm on birth control?
Yes, the test definitely works if you’re on hormonal birth control. You’ll be asked if you’re on birth control when you complete your Skin + Health Profile so we can interpret your results accurately.
Is it safe to test while pregnant?
Yes - it is completely safe to test while pregnant or breastfeeding. We interpret your results using the appropriate ranges. However, we recommend you test again when you are not pregnant or breastfeeding as hormones may have changed significantly.
Why do you test saliva?
Biofactors and hormones can be measured in a variety of ways - saliva, blood, and urine. At Veracity we chose a saliva based hormone test because it is the easiest and least invasive. Hormone levels in saliva are processed hormones - or more bioavailable hormones - so more likely indicate the hormone level affecting your skin. There are many more biofactors you can test using blood, urine and some new exciting technology we are working on that we hope to make available as soon as possible.
Why is it important to test first thing in the morning?
Testing first thing in the morning ensures the accuracy of your results. Hormone levels change over the course of the day, with some hormones such as cortisol and testosterone changing more than others. We interpret your results based on reference ranges for a morning collection.
Do you test genes/DNA?
No, we do not test for genetic information. We analyze your hormones and other biofactors that are scientifically proven to impact your skin and health. Unlike your DNA, the biofactors in your body change over time (just as your skin does) and are indicative of your health at the time of testing. DNA is useful for indicating what you might be susceptible to, but our test measures what matters most to your skin right now.
How do you create my recommendations?
Our recommendations are based on scientific research and data on biomarkers that have proven impact on your skin, in combination with the expert guidance of our medical advisory board. We also take into account the information you provide during the registration process to ensure recommendations are personalized in the most optimal way for you.
How do Veracity’s algorithms work?
Veracity’s algorithms were developed in concert with our experts and the existing medical research. We focus on identifying the most researched root causes and reference expert knowledge for our recommendations. We are continuously improving our algorithm based on new emerging research and feedback from our community.
