When my Reno dermatology patients ask me for the best product to treat wrinkles, I tell them about one of my favorite product combinations for fighting wrinkles â€¦ a growth factor + a retinoid. The growth factor builds collagen and promotes cell turnover with the added bonus of essentials antioxidants, while the retinoid increases collagen. This is a one-two punch for anti-aging.
From now through April 15 (tax day) we will be offering our growth factor TNS Essential Serum, bundled with a FREE retinoid. This is a $75 value.Â
TNS essential serum is a product you can use twice a day, morning and night. You put on one pump on freshly cleansed skin. It is a combination of growth factor, antioxidants, and peptides. This combination fights the damage you do every day, helps stimulate collagen, and promotes cell turnover. At six months we can see under the microscope on biopsies of the skin, an increase in collagen.
Retinoids have been around for more than 30 years. Many studies have shown that they increase collagen, which of course is our favorite effect of this medication. But, the other things that retinoids do is to stimulate cell turnover, decrease pigment in the skin, shrink pores, and naturally exfoliate the skin.
Retinoids are a topical product and are a derivative of vitamin A. The side effects are redness and irritation. Personally, I can only use a retinoid on my dry skin one time per week, but I have patients who can use these products every day. My advice is to apply a retinoid in the evenings on top of the TNS essential serum as often as your skin can tolerate, this can range from 1 to 7 evenings per week.
We know that when it comes to wrinkles and skincare, the right products can go a long way. This combination of a growth factor and retinoid will get your skin looking amazing. Come in to our Reno dermatology office and get our two favorite skincare products for anti-aging the TNS essential serum and get the retinoid (for free!).
