TNS Essential Serum is an all-in-one product that addresses multiple signs of aging in the skin. This unparalleled patented treatment is the first and only rejuvenating serum to combine the benefits of the proprietary growth factor blend, TNS Essential Serum®, with potent antioxidants, peptides, and other innovative ingredients to restore youthful looking skin.
Dr. Bomer’s tip: “The natural state of our skin is dynamic in that it is actively making new skin every day. It is in a constant state of renewing itself and shedding the outer layer. Hence our skin is always in a cycle of destruction and repair. We make collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid every day and at the same time our skin has enzymes that are degrading collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. As we age the proteins that help us to regenerate new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid decrease which why the TNS products can be so helpful. TNS contains the human proteins that we need to help shift our skin cycle into greater repair leading to a younger skin state. This marries well with retinol and glycolic which also stimulate new skin to develop.” – Kelly Bomer, MD

TNS Essential Serum Frequently Asked Questions:
What are Growth Factors and what do they do?
Growth factors are naturally occurring proteins that help skin regenerate, heal and keep the skin firm and healthy, they are not Growth Hormones. They are very important for skin rejuvenation as they are responsible for supporting the repair of damaged skin, making components that provide firmness and elasticity to the skin while helping to maintain skin’s protective functions. As we age, our skin produces fewer growth factors, and environmental aggressors like UV rays and pollution help degrade the existing growth factors. The growth factors in SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum help rejuvenate the skin, improve the tone and texture, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, brightens and moisturizes the skin.
What is Human Fibroblast Conditioned Media?
A physiologically balanced, naturally secreted and stabilized combination of multiple natural messenger proteins (Growth Factors) that helps improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone, and texture.
