Guest Post - Skin Care: PSP vs TNS?

Modern technology and research have advanced the Skin Care Industry to new heights, allowing for better, more effective products to be made available to the masses. Fine lines and wrinkles and loss of elasticity are just some of the skin care concerns that many have tossed up as “oh well, that’s just part of the aging process.” While that statement renders true, with the advances in the Health and Beauty Industry, aging now has many solutions; most notably non-invasive treatments, making it more convenient and preferable to say other cosmetic procedures for the same skin care concerns. One of the major advances is the use of Growth Factors in a variety of different skin care products.

What are growth factors? And why do you need them?

Growth Factors occur naturally in our bodies and help skin to repair itself. However, over time the body loses the ability to complete the healing process as it did in its youth. Aging actually causes Growth Factor levels in the body to decline and the cells do not receive the communication essential for repair. For healthy, vibrant, and more youthful appearing skin, Growth Factor replenishment is absolutely essential. With the advances in the Skin Care Industry this replenishment process is now available. Research has shown that Growth Factors have the potential to increase collagen production and improve wound healing, among many other improvements. Growth Factors work by penetrating into the skin to activate anti-aging pathways. These powerful molecules remain an important part of a comprehensive approach to reversing aged skin.

Two of the leading Skin Care Industry companies who have successfully formulated products utilizing Growth Factors are Neocutis and SkinMedica. Each has created their own patented, tested and true formulas to launch different lines of skin care products. While extensive research and clinical studies have been conducted on both companies’ products, to say one is better than the other is really up to each and every individual customer. There is an abundance of evidence showing that both brands’ formulas are effective, successful, and help to improve the overall health and appearance of the skin. So let’s take a look at each company’s Growth Factor formulas.

Neocutis uses Swiss Technology and specializes in products that help reverse the visible effects of aging. Researchers and Physicians at Neocutis Skin Care have formulated PSP® (Processed Skin Cell Proteins). PSP harnesses the power of human growth factors and cytokines to help deliver state-of-the-art skin revitalization. Exclusively found in Neocutis Skin Care Products, PSP is a skin nourishing technology that has been clinically demonstrated to help diminish the appearance of skin aging. In a 2007 study published in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology showed an 18% decrease in skin roughness after only 8 weeks using Neocutis products with PSP as opposed to less than 10% of patients that used a placebo formulation. In another clinical study a year later documented in the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy, findings were more extensive.

With a 6-month treatment of skin care products with PSP, 45% of individuals reported an improvement in skin elasticity and tightness, while 55% reported an improvement in facial lines and wrinkles. The study further found 64% of patients with improved facial tone and texture, 73% reported improved skin hydration, 100% of the patients liked the way the product felt on the skin and 91% stated they would continue using Neocutis products with PSP after this 6-month treatment period.

The Neocutis PSP line is comprised of the Bio-Restorative Skin Cream, the original product to incorporate PSP, it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and helps to restore firmness and even skin tone. Other products include the Bio-Cream Riche Bio-Restorative Skin Balm, Bio-Gel Bio-Restorative Hydrogel, Bio-Serum Intensive Spot Treatment, Bio-Serum Intensive Treatment, Journee Bio-Restorative Day Cream Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30, Lumiere Riche Bio-Restorative Eye Balm, and the Lumiere Bio-Restorative Eye Cream.

Scientists at SkinMedica have been researching and using their clinical experience to produce professional skin care products that help to rejuvenate the skin. They have formulated TNS®, a patented blend of growth factors, soluble collagen, antioxidants and matrix proteins, combine to create high quality products effective for any skin care concern. Growth factors are messenger proteins that are inherent in our bodies and play a big role in maintaining healthy skin. In several clinical studies, SkinMedica TNS products have been shown to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and enhance the skin texture and tone for an overall younger, smoother, brighter skin complexion.

 Some of the products in this SkinMedica line are the TNS Recovery Complex that utilizes a mixture of growth factors, antioxidants and cytokines help alleviate the visible signs of aging on the skin. The advanced gel will leave the skin looking younger, brighter, firmer, feeling more resilient for an overall desirable and healthy appearance. Other products include the TNS Essential Serum which utilizes two very powerful anti-aging treatments: TNS Recovery Complex and APS Corrective Complex™ to combat the visible signs of aging, TNS Line Refine, TNS Eye Repair, TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream, TNS Body Lotion, TNS Lip Plump System and the TNS Ultimate Daily Moisturizer SPF 20 Sunscreen.
