The Science of Beautiful Skin

Skin Medica is definitely a breakthrough in the science of skincare.  After 18 years of research, Skin Medica has created a treatment that provides the skin with what it naturally uses to fight aging: Growth Factors.

Growth Factors are proteins that regulate cellular growth and skin cell turnover.  Multiple Growth Factors are already present in the skin and work to maintain a healthy skin structure.  Through the aging process, their production and levels in the body decrease, leading to typical signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles.  So in order to fight the aging process, Growth Factors must be restored to the skin to promote renewal and repair.  To put it simply, they are like ‘chemical messengers’ that kick start the skin to act as it did when it was younger. 

What makes this range so unique is the unparalleled level of growth factors in the Tissue Nutrient Solution (TNS), 93.6%.  The closest competitor has only 30%.  TNS contains only substances that occur naturally in the skin, and is produced from a patented  process using human ‘fibroblasts’ (cells that secrete collagen proteins that also play an important role in healing wounds) to maximise the concentration of Growth Factors. 

The range includes the TNS Recovery Complex, used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and overall texture of the skin, and the TNS Essential Serum, an anti-ageing skin regenerating serum.  Also included is the TNS Eye Repair and TNS Line Refine, a small tube you can apply to the fine lines around the eyes and mouth.  Skin Medica also includes a cleanser, toner and moisturiser.

In this age where cosmetic surgery is fast becoming the norm, I’m all for trying non-invasive products for the treatment and prevention of aging.  The difference between the Skin Medica range and other beauty ranges is the promise it delivers on: to improve the appearance of skin and to fight ageing, using proven scientific methods.
