Eye Puffiness & Dark Circle Hyaluronic Acid Micro-Needle Patches for Wrinkles & Fine Line Repair - 3 Boxes/6 Pair
What are Micro-Needles?
Micro-Needle patches consist of a sticky hydrocolloid bandage with a water-soluble top that’s covered in tiny pyramid-shaped micro-needles. The tiny points provide a really clever way of increasing the delivery of skincare actives that can’t be done with conventional skincare products. The needles go through the skin barrier and create little tunnels for the Hyaluronic Acid to get through. Hyaluronic Acid helps reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles retaining moisture to the skin, creating a plumping effect. When the skin is protected and hydrated, increased skin cell production can take place, as the skin isn't busy fighting for hydration. This leads to smoother, plumper skin cells.
How do Micro-Needles Work?
The outermost layer of your skin is the stratum corneum. It’s made of tightly packed dead skin cells (keratinocytes), with intercellular lipids (fatty molecules) sitting in between them, a bit like bricks and mortar. It’s a thin layer, only about 10 to 15 micrometres thick, but it makes a fantastic barrier.
This barrier is really useful since it stops water and other essential things inside our bodies from leaking out into the environment, and it also stops toxins and irritants from the environment from leaking in. But when it comes to skincare, it’s not as great – we actually want ingredients to penetrate into our skin to where they can work!
Some skincare ingredients with the right properties can penetrate through our skin barrier, but many of them can’t get in. That’s why lots of products are formulated with penetration enhancers to help them get into the skin.How do you use the patches?
