SkinMedica®’s double-barreled serums have long been a favorite of dermatologists and skin-care lovers. Backed by the best research team in the business and a plethora of clinical studies, each skin-care step is known for its effectiveness both in the short-term and over extended use. So, when SkinMedica® launches a brand-new product, doctors and skin experts alike listen up. The latest launch that has skin-care fans talking is TNS® Advanced+ Serum, which is designed to improve the appearance of skin texture, fine lines and sagging skin.
Whether you’ve been using an age-defying routine for decades or are just starting to consider products that address the visible signs of aging, this high-tech serum is a valuable addition to your regimen. New York dermatologist Anne Chapas, MD explains exactly how it works: “One chamber contains SkinMedica®’s proprietary TNS® growth factor blend with over 450 natural growth factors and other matrix proteins. The second chamber features a highly active blend of botanicals, marine extracts and peptides designed to assist the growth factor blend in supporting skin rejuvenation.”
The serum’s hero ingredient—or should we say ingredients—are those 450 growth factors, which are “natural products made by any cell types, including skin cells,” says Austin, TX dermatologist Lisa Rhodes, MD. If you’ve noticed that your skin’s natural bounce is diminished, or seen sagging of the under-eyes, cheeks or chin, growth factors should be a part of your skin-care routine.
Regardless of your current age, Dr. Rhodes explains that “[generally people can benefit] from using products with growth factors.” “They can also help
the collagen breakdown that starts to occur as early as the 20s,” says Dr. Rhodes. TNS® Advanced+ Serum was formulated to address the visible fine lines and wrinkles of early aging and the deep, coarse wrinkles of advanced aging.
“I was impressed when I sampled TNS® Advanced+ Serum last year and have been waiting patiently for its market release,” says Dr. Chapas. Now that the serum is here, she’s recommending it to patients of all ages.
In as little as two weeks, clinical studies show that TNS® Advanced+ Serum provides rapid skin rejuvenation, minimizing the appearance of coarse wrinkles and fine lines, and enhancing skin texture. Over time, those continue to improve for an overall more youthful appearance.
To work the serum into your skin-care routine, Dr. Chapas suggests using it both in the morning and at night. After cleanser, followed by any topical prescriptions, apply a pea-size amount to the face and neck. Follow it up with SkinMedica® Vitamin C+E Complex. “If a patient uses a pure vitamin C serum instead, they should wait about 10 minutes between applications so that the ascorbic acid does not neutralize the benefits of growth factors, as is true for any growth factor product,” says Dr. Chapas. “I tell patients to brush their teeth, apply their body retinol, or do something else for a little bit while the growth factors fully absorb.”
Make sure to keep TNS® Advanced+ Serum in your regular rotation, as consistency is key for effective results. “My patients have seen a noticeable softening of wrinkles and [the appearance of] tightening and firming of their face and neck over time,” says Dr. Chapas. “Overall, their skin looks more youthful and healthy.”
