The science

Changing the way we treat skin

Tience® patented approach mimics the body’s natural functions by capturing the self-healing capabilities of human adipose tissue. It’s tissue science, advanced through a groundbreaking technology where bioactive proteins are extracted from the liposuction fat of carefully selected donors.

As a very active tissue with an immense capacity to heal and as an excellent source of bioactive proteins, fat tissue is the cornerstone of Tience®. The balanced composition of bioactive proteins and peptides – including skin structural proteins such as collagen, ceramides and antioxidants such as tretinoin – accelerate the regeneration of skin and subcutaneous tissue, resulting in long-term improvement of skin quality and less visible skin defects.


A thoroughly researched innovation

Based on comprehensive research, Tience® is safe. No significant adverse events or adverse reactions are found to be associated with the product. Immunological risks are minimal since Tience® doesn’t contain cells. Proteins are unaltered, at physiological concentrations, not enriched and with no excipients added. As Tience® is of human origin and free of additives, it is unlikely to induce any hypersensitivity or allergic reactions and is considered safe to use. Tissue donations are voluntary, carefully screened and tested. The production process is performed under a quality management system and within a licensed tissue establishment audited by the local competent authority.

Regenerative Aesthetics

When it comes to regenerative aesthetics, there has long been an unmet need for treatments that improve the skin’s natural regeneration. A need to find a way for the skin to repair itself properly using the body’s own systems, a need to regain its once youthful structure. What’s been accomplished to this day, relies largely on laborious and invasive surgical methods.
