It’s not over yet we know, but we must admit that we are entering the final stages of summer and all that summer fun and play is sure to take its toll on your skin whether you like it or not! It doesn’t matter if you’re a beach fanatic or a city slicker; your vacation glow will ultimately morph into a continuous sweat session that will have an undesirable impact on the skin. Clogged pores will cause blackheads to spread on the forehead, chin and nose and the dreaded cystic acne will make a reappearance. However, a new technology has been brought to our attention which will put all these problems to rest. Acropass is a new microneedling technology-based acne patch that can be used at home and which promises the fastest and most effective cure to acne and especially stubborn cystic ones.
It is no secret that the Koreans have a clear vision and advanced technology when it comes to beauty. Acropass patches are small round patches that can provide the skin with a great dose of hyaluronic acid and niacinamide in the form of tiny dissolvable pressure points or needles. What’s so special about these patches in a world that is currently infested with all sorts of facial patches is that the formula used in Acropass is claimed to be able to penetrate the skin’s surface delivering a fast and effective treatment of acne by providing the right anti-inflammatory agents that can have an immediate effect on the spots. They do not dry the spots like most acne medications available, especially ones based on benzoyl peroxide. In fact they treat the cyst while creating a balanced well-hydrated environment which is the Korean way of doing things; HYDRATION all the way!
Most anti-cystic acne treatments that are available in the markets come in topical forms and will not penetrate the skin hence a cystic spot can last for weeks and sometimes months below the epidermis surface (I would know!). Prior to placing the strip on the skin you have to swipe a pad of tea tree oil and salicylic acid over the area intended for treatment. These patches have to be worn for two hours at the least and preferably for six hours; they can even be slept in. What’s even more interesting is that the ultra-thin patches can be worn under makeup; they will be invisible when covered up. All this magic talk has got me super excited about ordering these. You will be hearing back from me after I give these patches a go!
