SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum 1oz
List Price: $249.38
There's a reason that the TNS Serum courtesy of Skin Medica is coined as essential... it does everything and we mean everything! Okay, okay, it might not do the dishes, but that is pretty much where this miracle product draws the line. It tightens, brightens, and even aids the skin renewal process. Translation: it helps the skin naturally regenerate itself. How cool is that? We are calling it the starfish effect.
It's as close to having a fountain of youth in a box as we have seen, because lines are all but eliminated. Our thoughts? Go ahead and have a crazy night out on the town, because this recovery complex will have you looking brand-spanking-new in the morning. A potent cocktail of extracellular matrix building amino acids, hydrolyzed silk, and human fibroblast conditioned media literally turns the tables on that mean old man, Father Time.
And we think this product is so cool to use. There is a dual chamber, so no matter what happens, you just feel like you are trying harder. One chamber utilizes the APS Corrective Complex to protect against free radicals. In reality, we found that these powerful peptides gave us a serious glow factor. The other chamber uses the TNS Recovery Complex to even out tone and texture while improving elasticity.
All we know is this... if you are searching for a superhero for your skincare regime, then Skin Medica should definitely be in your arsenal of defenses!
This unparalleled anti-aging serum is the first to combine the renowned growth factor serum, TNS Recovery Complex in one chamber and APS Corrective Complex, a potent mixture of antioxidants, peptides and other innovative anti-aging ingredients, in the other chamber. Together these products work synergistically to transform and regenerate your skin for a more youthful appearance
Before the first application lightly tap the top of the pump several times in the palm of your hand. Remove the cap and press on the very center of the pump to dispense both of the products onto the back on your hand. Blend the two products together and apply to the face. Use morning and night after cleansing and toning.
WARNINGS: For external use only. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with water. Discontinue use if irritation or rash occurs. If symptoms persist, consult a doctor
Human Fibroblast Conditioned Media- A unique product which capitalizes on the physiological advantage of many tissue factors in one solution that interact.
EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX BUILDING
Dipalmitoyl Hydroxyproline-A plant-derived amino acid with multifunctional anti-aging activities that promote the production of Tissue Inhibitors of Metalloproteinase (TIMPs) which are able to suppress the synthesis of Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs), enzymes involved in extracellular matrix degradation.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5- Has a unique peptide sequence that mimics the body's own mechanism to activate Tissue Growth Factor (TGF-beta), known as the key element in the synthesis of collagen.
Hydrolyzed Silk, Phospholipids, Butylene Glycol and Water- A combination of silk peptides encapsulated in liposomes that assimilate with skin cells to stimulate production of hyaluronic acid and collagen to improve skin tone and texture. Inhibits tyrosinase activity to reduce uneven skin pigmentation.
Ergothioneine (EGT)-A natural amino acid with super-antioxidant properties that protect cells against oxidative damage by scavenging reactive oxygen species, reducing UV-induced hydrogen peroxide, suppressing the expression of MMP-1 (proteins involved in the breakdown of extracellular matrix), and reducing inflammation.
Ubiquinone (Coenzyme Q10)- Effectively counteracts free radical damage and provides significant protection against UVA-induced detrimental effects of photoaging. Coenzyme Q10 works synergistically with vitamin E in preventing damage to lipid membranes and plasma lipids.
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate- A stable, lipid-soluble ester form of ascorbic acid (vitamin C), a free radical scavenger that fights aging symptoms in the skin while enhancing collagen production for firmer skin. Helps reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and age spots.
Tocopheryl Acetate- Stabilized ester of vitamin E that is considered the most important antioxidant and free radical scavenger. Moisturizes the skin from within, improving smoothness.
Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract- Reduces redness and suppresses skin inflammation and irritation while providing powerful antioxidant properties that help protect cells from free radical damage initiated by environmental factors.
Rubus Fruticosus (Blackberry) Leaf Extract- A plant derived inhibitor of Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs) that prevents the degradation of the extracellular matrix thereby helping to prevent wrinkle formation. The extract also exhibits antioxidant activity which helps fight the visible signs of aging.
Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate Lysate- A yeast extract that when topically applied defends against the detrimental effect of ozone (which has an ability to deplete antioxidants in the skin), and improve the barrier function of the skin.
Aminobutyric Acid- When administered systemically, it functions as neuromuscular inhibitor which reduces excitability of the nerves and produces muscle relaxation.
Hyaluronic Filling Spheres- Dehydrated filling spheres penetrate into skin folds of varying depth and trap water in the superficial layers of the skin. The remarkable characteristic of hyaluronic acid that acts as a molecular sponge, enables the spheres to swell and exert pressure in the direction of the surface, resulting in a smoothing effect on the skin.
Alpha-Arbutin- An extract from Bearberry plant that provides a lightening effect on the skin by inhibiting tyrosinase activity (the enzyme responsible for skin pigmentation).
