For All Skin Types. SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum is dual-chamber serum features two active formulas that work synergistically to maintain the skin's youthful look and feel. These two formulas regenerate the skin by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, tightening sagging skin, strengthening the skin's regenerative abilities, brightening age spots and fighting environmental damage. SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum leaves the complexion with a youthful tone and texture, brilliantly radiant and healthy looking. The first chamber features the TNS Recovery Complex, a blend of proteins, antioxidants and amino acids that repairs damage, reduce inflammation and improve visible signs of aging. The second chamber features the APS Corrective Complex, a mixture of multiple anti-aging ingredients such as antioxidants peptides and more. SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum® is a revolutionary anti-aging skin care product designed to make skin look and feel younger. The innovative dual-chamber packaging allows for two of SkinMedica's patented formulas to work in tandem to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, brighten skin tone, and leave skin softer, smoother, and younger looking than ever before. In one chamber is TNS Recovery Complex - a patented, clinically proven formulation of naturally occurring growth factors, antioxidants, soluble collagen, cytokines and matrix proteins. This product on its own reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, diminishes age spots, enhances skin texture and tone, and reduces sun damage that leads to aging skin. In the second chamber is APS Corrective Complex™ - a potent mixture of antioxidants, peptides, and other powerful ingredients that when combined, dramatically improve skin's overall appearance. Alone, this product benefits skin by fighting free radical damage that leads to premature aging, aiding in smoothing and tightening, and minimizing the appearance of age spots. SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum is an all-in-one rejuvenating product approved for all skin types. Even those with sensitive skin can use this product to fight and reverse the signs of aging. Benefits:
• NouriCel-MD helps improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and the overall tone and texture of skin
• Smoothes and tightens skin
• Strengthens the skin's natural ability to regenerate itself
• Fights against environmental damage
• Brightens and lightens age spots How To Use:
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, neck and decolletage. Use morning and night after cleansing and toning. Key Ingredients:
Human Fibroblast Conditioned Media - A unique product which capitalizes on the physiological advantage of many tissue factors in one solution that interact to maximally stimulate tissue repair.
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. Hyaluronic acid acts as a molecular sponge, enabling the spheres to swell and exert pressure in the direction of the surface, resulting in a smoothing effect on the skin.
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.
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.
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.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 - Has a unique peptide sequence that mimics the body's own mechanism to activate Tissue Growth Factor-beta (TGF-b), known as the key element in the synthesis of collagen.
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.
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.170
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.150
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.
Alpha-Arbutin - Biosynthetic active promotes skin lightening by inhibiting Tyrosinase activity, a regulator within the pigmentary process. Ingredients:

I was without the products for a month due to a trip and the surface of my skin showed it! Thanks to Skin 1's fast delivery my skin has its glow back! Perhaps I'm vain but other people have commented on my skin again. THANK YOU TNS and SKIN 1!!!
Don't think it is any better than other product that are a lot less expensive. After using the products for about a month, the serum ran out while there is still cream left. The packaging design is not compatible with the use of this product. Too expensive to put up with that!
It is a truly innovative hybrid in skin care technology. I've been using for 2 weeks. My skin feels velvety cushion soft and firmer. My fine lines can hardly be seen. This serum really delivers it all.
