Key Ingredients

Chamber 1: TNS Recovery Complex
Human Fibroblast Conditioned Media (TNS®) — A physiologically balanced, naturally secreted and stabilized growth factor blend that helps improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and overall skin tone and texture.

Chamber 2: APS Corrective Complex
Peptides help support the foundation of skin:

  • Palmitoyl Tripeptide 5
  • Hydrolyzed Silk (Sericin)
  • Dipalmitoyl Hydroxyproline

Antioxidants that fight free radical damage due to environmental aggressors:

  • Ergothioneine (EGT) — A super-antioxidant with free radical scavenging properties.
  • Ubiquinone (Coenzyme Q10) — An antioxidant that helps to counteract free radical damage and works synergistically with vitamin E.
  • Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract — A natural antioxidant rich in polyphenols, specifically EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate), which has photo-protective effects.
  • Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate — A stable form of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), a proven antioxidant.
  • Tocopheryl Acetate — A form of vitamin E considered one of the most important antioxidants and free-radical scavengers.
  • Rubus Fruticosus (Blackberry) Leaf Extract — A natural antioxidant rich in polyphenols.
  • Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate Lysate — A bio-optimized yeast extract that helps protect against the detrimental effect of ozone, which has an ability to deplete antioxidants in the skin.

Specialty Ingredients:

  • Alpha-Arbutin — Visibly brightens the skin.
  • Hyaluronic Filling Spheres — Dehydrated filling spheres containing hyaluronic acid help trap water in the superficial layers of the skin like a sponge resulting in immediate visible improvement of the skin.

Improved my 53 year old skinReview by Tina
I am 53 years old and have noticed my face 'falling' and tired looking over the last few months. I asked the receptionist if there was a cream that might help. She suggested I try the TNS Serum at $270 a pop. She said that the ladies LOVE it and they can't get enough of it. I'm a skin junkie, so I went with it. She recommended using 1 pump instead of 2, to make it last longer. I've been using it for about a month. It gave me a mild sunburn type of a glow and my face felt a little warm and irritated at first. My husband commented that he noticed I had some color in my face, which he said was a good thing. I kept using it every night on my face and neck and the redness and irritation subsided after about a week. After a few weeks of usage, I noticed that my pores around the base of my nose were much smaller and the forehead lines were not as deep. The receptionist said you have to keep using it to get continued results, which can be expensive, but they have sales during the year and you get a discount for your birthday month, so it helps a little on the cost. With the launch of this new website and 20% discount, I'm taking advantage of several more products from the SkinMedica line, and am purchasing my 2nd TNS Serum, so that I will have a reserve bottle when I run out of my first one. If you want a pick me up for your skin, but don't want injections or a face lift, try this! :) (Posted on 6/23/15)
