NIA24 Sun Damage Repair for Decolletage & Hands FAQsWhat is the difference between the Sun Damage Repair for Decolletage and Hands and the Skin Strenghening Complex?
Sun Damage Repair for Decolletage and Hands was specifically formulated for use on areas of the body where you typically found sun damage. Examples include the chest, backs of the hands, shoulders and arms. As a body product, it contain different ingredients than the repair crams for the face. In addition, it contains 2.5% Pro-Niacin, a lower dosage of the active ingredient to accommodate more compromised areas with a thinner barrier. When you have a compromised skin barrier, penetration of Pro-Niacin is enhanced, which can result vasodilation and flushing effects.
Will the 2.5% Pro-Niacin in the Sun Damage Repair for Decolletage & Hands produce similar results to the 5% Pro-Niacin in the Skin Strengthening Complex and Intense Recovery Complex?
Yes. The benefits of the Pro-Niacin molecuel remain the same. However, at a lower percentage, the visible effects of the molecule on sun damage and hyperpigmentation will occur at a slightly slower rate. If faster results are desired, once your skin has become acclimated to the 2.5% you may substitute the Skin Strengthening Complex, Intense Recovery Complex or Sun Damage Prevention 100% Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 to these areas.
How long will it take for my sun spots and freckles to fade on my arms and chest?
Improvements in texture, tone and firmness of the skin may appear in as little as 7-14 days. Depending upon the severity, visible improvements in sun damage and hyperpigmentation can take anywhere up to 6 months to appear. Because the Pro-Niacin molecule is working from the inside-out, it takes 2-3 cell turnover cycles (each lasting approximately 28 days) to create the visible improvements in the skin that everyone is looking for.
Why is my chest more prone to flushing and redness than the face?
The skin on the decolletage is thinner and more sensitive to the penetration of Niacin and thus, flushing and redness occur more often on this area. As a result, the Sun Damage Repair for Decolletage & Hands product was formulated with 2.5% Pro-Niacin rather than the full 5% to decrease the rish of flushing while still providing the benefits of the molecule.
