Skin Care Q & A

What is Nia24?

Nia24 is a unique line of beauty products containing a patented molecule called Pro-Niacin®. The Nia24 products are delivered deep within the skin via a micronutrient delivery system. This allows for niacin absorption even in the deeper layers of skin cells. Ultimately, this allows the Nia24 products to heal from the inside out. Dr. Frazier recommends Nia24 Sun Damage Prevention to inhibit the development of fine lines, pigment alterations, and precancerous changes associated with sun damage.

What is Elta MD®?

EltaMD offers a complete line broad spectrum sun protection. All of their products are formulated with zinc oxide. Transparent zinc oxide reflects and scatters the UVA and UVB radiation. Daily sunscreen should be a routine for everyone. UVA rays age the skin causing pigmentation changes, wrinkling, loss of elasticity and increase the risk of skin cancer. UVA radiation is not affected by the weather. It is present all day every day of the year.

What is Pelleve?

Pelleve is a non-invasive treatment that can help with many skin care concerns. It's often used to diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Pelleve can tighten the skin, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. A Pelleve treatment isn't painful, and in fact, most people say that it feels like a relaxing warm facial massage. The final results of Pelleve treatment are revealed over time, but the patient immediately has glowing facial skin. For this reason many women schedule this treatment on the morning of a special event. Usually, it takes about 6 weeks to see the true results of Pelleve treatment. Patients may need anywhere from 1-3 treatments, with sessions scheduled at least a month apart.

What is Pellefirm?

Using the Pelleve’ technology and a larger handpiece, Pellefirm tightens abdominal skin and reduces the appearance of cellulite on the abdomen and thighs.

What is PicoSure?

PicoSure is a picosecond laser that is often used in combination with Pelleve. PicoSure can effectively remove pigmented lesions, acne scars, tattoos and stretch marks. The PicoSure laser sends very short bursts of highly concentrated laser light directly into the lesion or pigmentation. This intense laser light forces the pigment to break apart into countless tiny particles. These particles are then absorbed into the bloodstream and are eliminated from the body naturally. PicoSure is unique among lasers because it can treat even very pigmented lesions, for example: dark sun spots on the face. When used in combination with Pelleve, patients can get beautiful and youthful looking results.
