Skin Care Newport News – NIA 24™ Skin Care Products
Pro-Niacin™ is the patented molecule found in each of the NIA 24™ products. With its unique micro-nutrient deliver system, Pro-Niacin™ penetrates the skin, delivers niacin to skin cells, and enables healing from within to promote healthier, more beautiful-looking skin.
Just as the name suggests, Pro-Niacin™ is based from niacin, also known as Vitamin B3. You may be familiar with the oral form of niacin, a water-soluble micro-nutrient found in a number of commonly eaten foods. As a nutritional supplement, niacin aids in cholesterol reduction and energy metabolism, but more recently, it has emerged as a key factor in helping the skin protect and repair itself from sun damage and aging.
The 24-hour continuous micro-nutrient delivery system is unique to the Pro-Niacin™ molecule and is what distinguishes the NIA 24™ products from other products containing Niacin. Because of this unique delivery system, Pro-Niacin™ does not cause vasodilatation.
How It Works
NIA 24™ products increase levels of niacin, which affects four major biochemical processes. As a result, the Pro-Niacin™ molecule helps your body generate healthier skin cells from the inside out, starting well below the skin’s surface, which strengthens the skin barrier. NIA 24™ products:
- Stimulate the repair of DNA so your skin cells can undo some of the damage caused by the sun, creating healthier skin through a natural repair process.
- Provide niacin to the skin to promote healthy energy metabolism so skin cells can undergo proper cell turnover.
- Help the release of leptin, a natural repair hormone, to promote healing of skin cells. Repairing wounds and improving immune response are two results.
- Decrease hyperpigmentation by stimulating a signaling cascade that inhibits the transfer of melanin to the surrounding skin cells.
