Question about SkinMedica: just wondering wat s the main diff between tns essential q153

Question:

Just wondering wat s the main diff between tns essential serum n the recovery complex? Is the essential the upgrade version of recovery complex? I m 31 yrs old n main concern is the uneven skin tone, little pigmentation n the deep laugh line next to my mouth. Which product would u recommend? Also, if I m going to do the Ipl laser treatment for pigmentation , can still use tns afterwards? Tks

Answer:

The essential serum contains the 96 percent human growth factors like the recovery complex so identical in that regard, however the essential serum also contains l-arbutin which is a derivative of hydroquinone along with long chain peptides and a multitude of antioxidants – which makes it ideal for hydration, stimulation of collagen, antioxidant effects as well as effective for blocking pigment.

The tns recovery can be mixed with other brightening and peptide/antioxidant containing serums to achieve a similar effect.

I would still apply sunscreen over both and a moisturiser if the patient had a drier complexion.
