Okay, so these patches aren’t promising the same instant gratification, anti-ageing results as injectables. In fact, they’re not even trying to compete with invasive treatments at all! But a non-invasive solution to fine lines and wrinkles, puffy eyes and mouth lines they absolutely are.
Unlike topical anti-wrinkle, or de-puffing, skincare, our micro needling patches waste no time in getting stuff done. With 2,500 precise, pyramid-shaped microneedles on a single patch, the active ingredients crystalised into the microneedles have 2,500 chances to get to the source of your age-related concerns.
Once you push the patch on, and the microneedles penetrate the skin, they make a clear path for a potent cocktail of anti-ageing ingredients to get to the deeper layers of the skin where they can really be effective.
What ingredients are fighting the good, anti-ageing fight for you?
First up, we have a combination of 100% natural low and high molecular hyaluronic acid, revitalising and regenerating your skin from the inside out. While the more refined molecules sink into the deeper layers of the skin to provide intensive, multi-level hydration, the thicker molecules rest on your skin’s barrier, providing reinforcements and aiding it to keep your skin’s existing, and recently added, hydration stay put!
Next up? Collagen. A naturally present protein in the dermis (AKA the deepest layer of your skin), the body slows in producing it as the years go on, leaving behind sagging skin and wrinkles, which is only made worse by external factors including UV radiation and environmental toxins. What the collagen in our patches aims to do is to fill in fine lines, as well as aiding your skin to retain moisture.
Then comes the one-two-three punch of peptides—so stay with us, we’re going to get nerdy for a second. Acetyl hexapeptide-8, Copper Tripeptide-1 and Copper Tripeptide-1 all combine to restore the skin, help it retain moisture, reduce expression lines, heal the skin and up its immunity, plus increase its firmness and elasticity.
Then, we’ve got adenosine. Having already proven its anti-wrinkle benefits in the past, this naturally-present ingredient keeps the youth rolling by upping your skin’s elasticity, as well as resurfacing the skin so it looks smoother and younger with each application. Plus, it helps your skin combat and reduce the damage caused by UVB rays.
And last but not least, we have Madecassoside. Having already proven its abilities over the last 2000 years in Indian and Ayruvedic medicine, this natural ingredient derived from the plant Centella asiatica, it helps to heal skin quickly and effectively, making it perfect for those with inflamed acne or highly sensitive and reactive skin.
So that concludes our ingredient roundup. But, before we finish up, we have one more mechanism that works within these patches for your anti-ageing plight. Before the contained potent actives even get to work repairing and regenerating your skin, this process has already been kicked off the second the microneedles pierce your skin.
The patches’ microneedle technology actually creates micro-injuries on the skin’s surface, which as a result causes plumpness-promoting collagen production. Who doesn’t love a bonus skincare benefit?!
So when each of these individual elements combine, gradual but visible anti-ageing results will be a-plenty!
