Peptides, Growth Factors, and TNS…Oh My!
- Posted on: Jul 20 2018
You probably have heard the terms “peptides” and “growth factors”, but what do they mean? Let’s break it down and explain why it would be a good idea to have one or both of these in your skin care routine.
Peptides are chains of amino acids, proteins or food for your skin. It’s like body building, but for your face! They nourish the skin so it is strong and behaves to look as if it were younger. We want that right?
Peptides have been around since the 1980’s and as they have evolved, they are replacing harsh ingredients and providing great results. There are several peptides that offer many anti-aging effects. Some carry out instructions functions to produce collagen or elastin, Some actually prevent enzymes from reducing collagen and elastin, acting like an antioxidant. Some nourish skin and heal wounds.
When applied topically, growth factors are one of the best active ingredients in skin rejuvenation. They communicate with your skin cells to create more collagen and elastin. As we age we produce less skin cells, making less growth factors than cells in youthful skin. 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.
And this is why we love TNS Essential Serum so much. In this product you get both peptides and growth factors. The 3 key benefits of TNS Essential Serum are reducing appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, enhancing texture, and tone.
There are two chambers in the serum.
- Chamber 1 contains TNS Recovery Complex which is a balanced naturally secreted and stabilized growth factor blend that helps improve lines, tone and texture
- Chamber 2 contains APS Corrective Complex with has multiple peptides and antioxidants.
Including Alpha-Arbutin for skin brightening and Hyaluronic filling spheres the help your skin trap water.
Although this product is pricey, $270 for 1 oz to be correct, this product is like liquid gold! There have been great reviews with TNS Essential Serum and many of our patients continue to come back for more. We may not have found the actual fountain of youth, but when it comes to skincare I would say TNS is up there.
