What are SkinMedica Peels and TNS Skincare

Skin care products and chemical peels offered at the physician’s office or medical skin clinic offer more potency when addressing aging and pigment concerns. Stronger peels can additionally treat acne scars and smooth the skin. SkinMedica is one line of medical skincare and professional peels that’s currently being offered. Their anti-aging line TNS® (stands for Tissue Nutrient Solution) features a proprietary cocktail of naturally occurring growth factors, peptides, cytokines and proteins with 93.6% active ingredients that claim to combat skin aging. They also offer three medical-grade chemical peels that range in strength, level of downtime and aesthetic goals.

SkinMedica’s three peels are the Illuminize Peel®, which is the mildest and best suited for first-time chemical peel patients or those looking to brighten their complexion with minimal downtime and no peeling skin. The Rejuvenize Peel® is a glycolic peel designed to produce a more dramatic results with fewer treatments. Finally the Vitalize Peel® is a medium-strength peel that contains a blend of alpha-hydroxy acids, beta-hydroxy acids, resorcinol and retinoic acid for treating texture, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation with 3-6 sessions.

Drawbacks and Limitations

When it comes to skin resurfacing SkinMedica may not have the most effective chemical peel. Other peels are better for treating acne, acne scars, sun damage, wrinkles, texture and pigmentation issues. TCA peels such as the Vi Peel can produce superior results with fewer sessions with only a minimal amount of downtime. Presented with a choice between the two brands, the powerful TCA Vi Peel Precision Series can achieve patients’ skin enhancement goals much faster and for less than the cost of competitors’ products.

Vi Peel and Microneedling PRP Treatments for More Effective Resurfacing

Dr. Mosser and his team of trusted clinicians feel that the best mild-moderate skin resurfacing can be achieved with a series of Vi Peel face peels. Their Precision line can help to smooth lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone and texture. Vi Peel uses a combination of Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and Retin-A to achieve a deep exfoliation over the course of 2-3 treatments. The Precision Plus formulation has two additional ingredients – Hydroquinone and Kojic acid – for dealing with more advanced cases of sun damage, acne scars, hyperpigmentation or melasma.

Microneedling with PRP can also be used to resolve issues such as poor texture, tone and enlarged pores. Microneedling involves gliding the Eclipse MicroPen® or Bellus SkinPen across the skin’s surface to create tiny punctures in the epidermis in order to stimulate a wound healing response. These micro-injuries results in new collagen formation that rejuvenates the skin and improves its overall appearance. PRP (platelet rich plasma) uses patients’ own blood to ‘inject’ healing growth factors into the dermis. A small amount of blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to extract the platelets which are then reintroduced back into the skin through the tiny wounds. Plasma growth factors further enhance the Microneedling procedure by helping the dermal tissues regenerate faster.

In addition to skin peels, Azala Medical Aesthetic offers several medical skincare lines from Obagi, SkinCeuticals and Neocutis. Whether patients are looking to maintain results after a procedure or simply to improve their complexion, we have a number of cleansers, toners, antioxidants, vitamin C serums and retinols to help keep their skin looking smooth and youthful. Our team of experienced and specially trained skincare professionals will be happy to recommend the right skin care products for you.
