3 Fast Facts: Skinmedica TNS Recovery Complex

I started 3 fast facts because I could go on forever about some of these products… which can make writing about them a little daunting.  Instead of overthinking (and therefore procrastinating), I’ll just use this category to finally touch on some of my favorite products & three reasons you might love them too! 


 

 

Three Fast Facts About: SkinMedica TNS Recovery Complex

This anti-aging product moonlights as a post-procedure super hero!

This anti-aging product moonlights as a post-procedure super hero!

➢ Fact 1

Growth factors are not something that come naturally to aging skin. Thankfully, SkinMedica has provided us with the #1 growth factor on the market, NouriCel-MD, which is a naturally secreted , physiologically-balanced combo of over 110 human growth factors that are both active and stable. TNS Recovery complex is made up of 93.6% NouriCel-MD (this means it’s potent).

Growth Factors like TNS Recovery complex basically play a game of telephone with the skin to unlock it’s ability to heal and repair itself. Since age and inflammation basically wound the skin, TNS helps ‘heal’, improving skin texture, smoothing fine lines, and reducing photo damage.

➢ Fact 2

This nifty red gel is quickly absorbed by the skin. In fact, you’ve got to be pretty quick about it! This has been a patient favorite for years. I would say that there’s almost a cult-like following of TNS among many clients/patients. Many of our patients insist that it almost instantly tightens upon application and won’t go without it. Great for all skin types, use AM/PM before all of your other serums and moisturizers.

➢ Fact 3

Since procedures like chemical peels and laser treatments are also a sort of wound, TNS Recovery complex is often times appropriate to use after your peel or laser treatment to help the skin heal quickly and predictably. That’s one reason it was called Recovery Complex! (Always check with your doctors office to see what their specific post care instructions are for your procedure). We love it after HALO laser, MicrolaserPeel, pro-fractional laser, chemical peels, after the incisions seal up post-surgical procedures, and all the time!

New (super cute) Device Monitors Sun Exposure: We’re now OFFICIALLY out of Excuses

Has anyone seen the June device yet?

It’s existence was just announced by Netatmo at the Consumer Electronics Show. It’s a an electronic device that looks like a wrap bracelet… a somehow good-looking wrap bracelet! Amazingly, its actually a REALLY PRETTY bracelet, unlike my Fit Bit Force or my clunky and my obvious and chunky Body Bugg Arm Band!! Obviously I’m impressed with the styling here, but Ok- I’ll get on with it:  This wearable device-in-disguise actually monitors your sun exposure.

With the June device, you can check in to see how you’re doing on your UV exposure-levels from your smart phone. This way, you know what peak-times to stay in, when to re-apply SPF, and when to ‘call it a day’ after a daytime jaunt involving plenty of daylight exposure. With more than 2 million cases of skin cancer diagnosed in the US each year, I hope this little guy takes off! It’s not released yet, but I’ll be watching closely for its launch- can’t wait to try it out!

**WAIT** Do you know why it's more fabulous than these other wearable devices?? I just read that it was designed by a designer/collaborator from Louis Vuitton. Ok, now we understand why it's good-looking.  (image courtesy of TomsGuide.com)
