What is NIA-114™?
NIA-114 is a patented form of Niacin (Vitamin B3) that enables optimal delivery of the molecule into the skin. Once absorbed, Niacin stimulates natural repair processes within skin cells (such as DNA repair, energy metabolism and cell turnover) to ultimately generate healthier skin cells and build a stronger skin barrier. The results are visible improvements in skin texture, tone, firmness and reduced discoloration.
How long will it take for the first blush to subside?
A Niacin flush will not last more than 1-2 hours after applying the product. It presents quickly (within 15 minutes) and dissipates quickly. To reduce the effect, apply a cold compress to the skin. Remember, this is a positive sign that Niacin is penetrating the skin and yielding beneficial rebuilding and repairing effects.
If I stop using the products, will it reverse the improvements in my skin?
No. Improvements made within your skin will remain due to the repairing and rebuilding that has occurred. However, natural decline in healthy skin will still occur so it is best to continue use to maintain results.
Can I use StriVectin products with other skin care products?
Yes. StriVectin is a problem-solution skin treatment brand intended to be used with other products and as part of a complete regimen. There are no contraindications for using StriVectin with other skin care brands.
Can you use StriVectin products and still tan or use self-tanning products?
Yes. The technology in StriVectin will not interfere with the efficacy of tanning or tanning products.
Can you go out in the sun after using StriVectin?
Yes, the ingredients within the StriVectin products do not increase photosensitivity; therefore, sun exposure after using these products is fine. To avoid additional damage to the skin, always use smart sun safety tips and sunscreen at all times.
Can you use StriVectin if you have rosacea?
Yes. However, due to sensitivity of individuals with rosacea, we recommend a test patch of the products on the neck or jaw line. Flushing is a natural side effect of Niacin due to increased blood flow to the skin. It’s an indication that Niacin is working and is not worsening the rosacea condition. In fact, because Niacin builds the skin barrier, it can help to reduce the flare-ups caused by rosacea over time.
Can all skin types and colors use StriVectin?
Yes, StriVectin products are for all skin types as well as all colors of skin.
Can you use StriVectin if you have acne?
We do not advise applying any StriVectin skin care product to open acne lesions. In addition, to be safe, apply a patch test prior to using any of the StriVectin products on the entire face.
Can you use StriVectin before or after a treatment (e.g. chemical peel)?
Yes, begin product usage at least 2 weeks before treatment and if one hasn’t begun the products beforehand, refrain from introducing a new product to the skin for 2 weeks after treatment.
Are the products safe to use when pregnant or nursing?
While there are no contraindications for use, it is recommended to consult your physician prior to use.
If your doctor advises you to avoid Niacin, can you still use the products?
For individuals with Niacin allergies or those on prescription drugs in which Niacin is not recommended, it is best to consult your physician prior to using the new StriVectin products.
What is the shelf-life of the products and can you extend it with refrigeration?
Shelf-life of all StriVectin products is 3 years, except for Age Protect Sunscreen which is 2 years. The Period After Opening (PAO) is also listed on each package and ranges from 18-24 months. With exception of TL 360 Tightening Eye Serum, we do not recommend placing products in the refrigerator.
