Regenerating Growth Factors

Published April 30, 2013 11:09 AM by Mina Grasso
Growth factors enhance the skin's natural ability to heal and regenerate to produce more youthful skin. Growth factors are proteins that regulate cellular growth and the activity of skin cells. There are multiple growth factors responsible in maintaining healthy skin. As we age, the production of growth factors such as TGFB reduces and contributes to the development of fine lines and wrinkles.

Years ago, when Skin Medica first developed the TNS Recovery Complex (Tissue Nutrient Solution), our patients and staff were pleased with the improvement in their skin quality. Over the years, various product lines have developed growth factors and we were intrigued with the newness, packaging and scents of some of them. 

As "growth factors" become more popular, we are often asked, "What is the difference between one product and another?" Growth factor products vary in type and concentration of these growth factors.

TNS originates from human fibroblasts and is blended with antioxidants, cytokines, matrix proteins and a rich concentration of growth factors in a physiologically balanced preparation that reduces pigmentation, improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  

After reviewing reproducible clinical studies we have switched back to the TNS Recovery Complex, which continues to prove to contain the highest concentration of growth factors (93% concentration) compared to newer brands that we have carried in our clinic.  

Full strength TNS now combined with advanced peptides, skin-brightening alpha-arbutin and seven potent antioxidants as one product in two chambers called TNS Essential Serum. TNS Essential Serum produces an impressive list of anti-aging results, such as improvement of fine lines and wrinkles by 44%; reduced age spots, photo damage and dyspigmentation; enhanced skin tone up to 16%; and enhanced textural roughness by 89% after twelve weeks of twice daily use. Clinical studies show that initial results occur in 30 days with optimal results in 90 days.  

TNS Essential Serum can be used on all skin types. It can be applied to the face, neck, décolleté and back of the hands. It is an ideal product for patients who want to keep skin care simple, while benefiting from clinically proven age-reversing properties.



I did the same thing in my clinic and decided to go with AQ Skin Solutions instead of Skin Medica. The results my patient got with AQ were superior and faster than TNS and AQ provide diverse products line. Also, the science behind AQ is superior in my opinion and you can tell by the smell and texture of their products. I encourage you to try it before deciding to settle with TNS. Also the concentration of TNS is just marketing and not scientific as growth factors need to have the right concentration and combination to be effective. More does not mean better.
