Human growth factors and Vitamin C — A powerful duo for younger skin
As spring gives way to summer sunshine, increased UV exposure as well as humidity and perspiration can wreak havoc on the skin, exposing signs of aging that were quietly hibernating during the winter and early spring months.
Two key ingredients responsible for promoting youthful, rejuvenated skin year-round are human growth factors and vitamin C.
Human growth factors are proteins found naturally in the skin that act as messengers to stimulate the creation of new collagen. Unlike young skin that renews itself every 28 days, as we get older, our skin's ability to produce natural growth factors needed to stimulate fibroblasts to increase collagen production are limited due to damage by intrinsic or extrinsic aging. Human growth factors and potent antioxidants, such as vitamin C, can help replenish skin cells, build collagen and protect delicate skin from free radical damage.
SkinMedica's TNS Recovery Complex® offers an unparalleled, patented treatment gel with the highest concentration of growth factors (TNS®) on the market. The potent solution is clinically proven to effectively increase collagen production, enhance skin tone and texture as well as improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. TNS Recovery Complex helps strengthen the skin's natural ability to regenerate itself to help improve the appearance of age spots in addition to making skin firmer and resilient.
Vitamin C, one of the most effective ingredients in skin rejuvenation, is clinically demonstrated to help build collagen and fight free radicals released in the skin through UV exposure.
SkinMedica's Vitamin C&E Complex, a silky, fragrance-free formula, packs a skin-defending punch to fight free radical damage, promote cell renewal and increase collagen production. Follow TNS Recovery Complex with an application of Vitamin C&E Complex containing 15 percent stabilized vitamin C and E to help improve the appearance of skin tone, texture and firmness; plus, it delivers essential C and E vitamins to the skin all day.
TNS Recovery Complex and Vitamin C&E Complex should be used in conjunction with daily sun protection for best results. A sunscreen is essential for fighting free radical oxidation that can penetrate the skin and cause damage at the cellular level. Use a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, such as SkinMedica's Environmental Defense Sunscreen™ SPF 30+, a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with added biological antioxidant protection to fight against environmental damage.
