What is TNS Essential Serum?

TNS Essential Serum consists of multiple products contained within two separate chambers.  

TNS®  stands for Tissue Nutrient Solution.  It is a patented high concentration blend of human growth factors and cytokines that is physiologically balanced to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone and texture.  It does not contain retinoids or chemical exfoliants that sometimes irritate the skin or make it red. This human fibroblast conditioned media is known as TNS Recovery Complex®, the major component of TNS Essential Serum.

TNS Essential Serum also comes with APS Corrective Complex which consists of peptides, antioxidants, botanical extracts, alpha-arbutin to brighten skin, and hyaluronic filling spheres.  

What are growth factors?

Growth factors are messenger proteins that are inherent in our bodies and play a role in tissue repair and in maintaining healthy skin.  Whenever you injure yourself, localized growth factors are released and help signal different components of your body to repair the damage and build collagen.

You may already be familiar with the benefits of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) - read more about this. With PRP, your own blood platelets are concentrated so that your doctor can use your body’s own cytokines and growth factors contained within those platelets to help you heal. However, this would be an in-office procedure.  TNS Essential Serum is a topical product you use at home twice a day. It has human-derived growth factors and cytokines, plus antioxidants and matrix proteins that help address free radical damage that occurs to your skin on a daily basis.

Does it work?

92% of people who used TNS Essential Serum rated their skin as looking healthier and more youthful. It reduced the appearance of wrinkles, and enhanced skin texture and tone.  


How long till I see results?

With data on file at SkinMedica®, an Allergan brand, initial results occurred in 30 days with optimal results occurring in 90 days.
