Aspen, Colo. — At the most recent edition of The Cosmetic Bootcamp (CBC), Jeanine Downie, M.D., shared the rationale behind the growth factors in TNS Essential Serum.
Many patients ask why growth factors are important, said Dr. Downie, a Montclair, New Jersey-based dermatologist. “We all stop growing by the time we are 25 years old. So your growth factor starts to fade by the time you’re 30. When your growth factor decreases, the collagen in your skin starts sagging. I tell my patients, ‘You’re losing a teaspoon of collagen every year from age 30 onward.'”
The teaspoon metaphor explains and justifies the need for growth factors in terms patients can understand. “It’s important to set the foundation for why they’re spending money on growth factors, why it’s important and what it’s going to do for their skin.”
Frequently, she added, patients bring in products purchased online that purport to contain growth factors – sometimes as little as 7% or less. “I tell them TNS Essential contains 93% (human fibroblast-derived) growth factors. Do you want your kid to get a 93 on their test, or a 7?”
