Introducing NEW! StriVectin-AR™ Advanced Retinol Night Treatment

What happens when NIA-114™ and Retinol spend the night together? A good night’s sleep with faster, smarter anti-aging results. StriVectin®, the clinical anti-aging expert, brings the science of a good night’s sleep to women everywhere with the launch of the NEW StriVectin-AR™ Advanced Retinol Night Treatment. Our first midnight multitasker, StriVectin-AR™ Advanced Retinol Night Treatment fights the major signs of aging including significantly reducing the appearance of deep-set wrinkles and fine lines, hydrating and deeply nourishing skin nightly, improving skin firmness to restore its bounce and youthful contour, evening skin tone for increased radiance and refining and smoothing skin texture.

For the first time, we’ve combined two of the most powerful anti-aging actives, our exclusive, clinically proven NIA-114™ molecule and Retinol, the gold standard in anti-aging, to create one fast-acting nighttime treatment. Through over 30 years of medical research, we discovered that NAD (the bioactive form of Niacin or Vitamin B3) is required to convert Retinol (Vitamin A) to its bioactive, more efficacious form of Retinoic Acid in the skin. Our proprietary NIA-114™ molecule is one of the most active forms of Niacin and compared to Niacinamide, it is able to increase the NAD content in the skin to help fuel Retinol conversion. Furthermore, only NIA-114™ has the unique ability to absorb deeply into the skin to strengthen and build-up the skin barrier, enhancing its durability and in turn improving its tolerability of Retinol and reducing sensitivity. Working as a dynamic duo, only NIA-114™ activates Retinol’s age-fighting power to work harder, faster and more efficiently without the irritating side effects commonly associated with Retinol usage.

Clinically proven, Smarter, Faster results. StriVectin-AR™ Advanced Retinol Night Treatment was tested in 12-week, independent placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trials against a placebo formula that did not contain NIA-114™. These studies proved StriVectin-AR™ Advanced Retinol Night Treatment’s age-fighting potency across the major signs of aging. After just 4 weeks of use, clinical expert graders observed:

100% had an improvement in skin texture
88% had an improvement in skin clarity and radiance
79% had an improvement in skin firmness
82% had an improvement in fine lines

Over the course of the 12 week clinical study, StriVectin-AR™ Advanced Retinol Night Treatment was clinically proven to rapidly increase the rate of improvement with clinical expert graders observing:

A 26x improvement in skin tone
A 7x improvement in wrinkles
A 4x improvement in skin firmness
A 3x improvement in texture

"While Retinols offer many proven, anti-aging benefits, in some of my patients they tend to irritate and weaken the skin barrier causing dryness, redness, itchiness and flakiness," says Dr. Ellen Marmur, prominent New York City dermatologist, Founding Director of Marmur Medical and author of Simple Skin Beauty. "Now, it’s great to see that there is an at-home alternative that can help strengthen the skin barrier without the harsh side effects."

With all the benefits of a Retinol without a visit to the dermatologist, StriVectin-AR™ Advanced Retinol Night Treatment works all night so you wake up to softer, smoother, hydrated skin without increasing redness or irritation.

Key Ingredients:

- Proprietary NIA-114™ (niacin, in the form of Nicotinic Acid) to help stimulate DNA repair for healthier skin, visibly improving texture, tone and discolorations, and strengthen the skin barrier to help protect against Retinol’s harsh side effects.
- Retinol and Retinyl Palmitate to encourage cell turnover and stimulate collagen production, improving the appearance of deep wrinkles and fine lines.
Peptides to help stimulate a high-quality of collagen to aggressively fight wrinkles.
- Sodium Hyaluronate, can hold up to 200 times its own weight in water, to help hydrate, improve the barrier function and replenish the lipid layer addressing the causes of dry skin.
- Efficacious Botanicals to help increase the production of collagen.

To use: Use nightly on clean, dry skin. Apply over entire face, concentrating on areas of concern. Use sunscreen daily.
