The Secret is out………………just arrived in New Zealand, at Prescription Skin Care. The first appearance medicine clinic to offer the best Anti-aging remedy you will ever experience. Finally you have access to the youth elixir the stars have all been raving about, describing it as their ‘secret weapon!’

Find out for yourself why stars like Jennifer Anniston have chosen SKIN MEDICA’s TNS line for smooth, flawless, radiant, youthful, hydrated skin.

Oprah has openly raved about Skin Medica’s TNS Recovery Complex and calls it her “Magic Lotion”, and it really is!

This most exciting breakthrough is light years ahead of its competitors in concentration, delivery and stability. Skin Medica through meticulous research, has been able to create a treatment that provides the skin with what it naturally uses to fight aging: Growth Factors. If you don’t want to take Oprah’s word for it then the science-backed clinical evidence speaks for itself!

Growth Factors, are proteins that regulate cellular growth and skin cell turnover. Multiple Growth Factors are present in the skin and work to maintain a healthy skin structure. Through normal aging their production and levels in the body decrease resulting in typical signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Topical Growth Factors have proven to play a crucial role in skin repair and rejuvenation.

At last you too can enjoy their benefits both at home and in clinic treatments.

Skin Medica’s TNS stands for Tissue Nutrient Solution, and is a 96.3 % concentration of Growth Factors, cytokines and other essential substances all occurring naturally and essential for rejuvenation. TNS was produced from human fibroblasts using a patented, highly effective process to maximise the concentration of Growth Factors while maintaining natural physiological balance. This physiological balance mimics our natural processes and cannot be replicated using single growth factors.

Skin Medica founder Dr. Richard Fitzpatrick is an innovative leader in Dermatology. In March 2005 he was named Allure Magazine’s “Physician Who Has Most Influenced Beauty” and has pioneered the use of lasers for more than 30 years.

Dr. Fitzpatrick realized a lack of quality products available to physicians and created the SkinMedica product line for use in his own practice. Based on the excellent results Dr. Fitzpatrick achieved with SkinMedica products in his clinical practice and the numerous requests from other physicians for research-based, clinically proven products, he decided to make the SkinMedica skin care system available to all physicians’ patients.

SkinMedica’s professional-strength skin care products are the result of over a decade of research and clinical use and are designed to enhance skin appearance, reduce signs of ageing, and provide other restorative benefits.

Skin Medica’s leading product is TNS (Tissue Nutrient Solution) Recovery Complex®, which contains NouriCel-MD® , a biotechnology-derived, naturally occurring mixture of growth factors and other key ingredients that, when applied topically, improve the appearance of skin. NouriCel-MD is included in an entire family of products that are supplemented by moisturizers, cleansers, chemical facial peels, and enhancement products to help each patient achieve maximum benefits.

SkinMedica® constantly strives to anticipate consumers’ skincare needs and desires by developing innovative skin-enhancing products in both the pharmaceutical and aesthetic arenas.
