When it comes to wrinkles, it can seem like nothing works to help reduce the signs of aging. Your wrinkles or fine lines may be deep or not respond to skin care products like retinol. Before you apply for botox, consider one last option: silicone.

You heard it right. Silicone patches, though less well known than ingredients like retinol, are just as effective in helping to fade the look of aging skin. These patches are available in all shapes and sizes and can be applied to various parts of the skin, such as the neck or décolleté.

How exactly do these patches work?

Basically, each patch is made of medical grade silicone, which creates the perfect climate to retain moisture in the skin. They prevent the entry of outside air and attract moisture, creating a filling effect in the affected area. It also increases blood flow to the area, thereby stimulating collagen secretion and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. No botox, no retinol, just silicone!

So do they really work for wrinkles?

The short answer is yes. With botox or injections, you can get immediate results. But by using one of these silicone patches regularly, you’ll see an improvement in the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles for a fraction of the cost and without unnecessary irritation.

Why use silicone patches?

Doctors have used them for years to treat scars and burns, to help heal the skin underneath.

How do they work?

Wrinkles are formed due to a lack of collagen and hydration. The patches deprive the skin of oxygen and force it to draw moisture from the deeper layers to the surface of the skin. This microclimate of moisture and oxygen just below the patch creates volume and reduces wrinkles. Added bonus: it keeps skin taut during sleep. Which helps reduce wrinkles when we toss and turn.

Some rules to adopt to optimize the results:

Rule 1. Stay consistent with the use of your silicone patch.

Like any practice, it requires your dedication and commitment to see lasting results.

Rule #2. While he wears his silicone patches, he tries to stay still.

Watch a movie, sleep or relax, and approach your treatment as a self-care routine. Use your treatment as a way to unwind or start your day relaxing!

Rule #3. Prepare your skin and clean the application area.

Careful preparation of your skin ensures the adhesion of the silicone patches.

Rule #4. Keep the silicone patches on your skin for 1-8 hours.

Wear your silicone patches for at least 1 hour and preferably up to 8 hours. For best results, sleep with your silicone patch close to your skin.

How to use the patches against wrinkles?

Many people ask how they should use silicone patches. One of the best ways to ensure silicone patch results is to add it to a proper skincare routine! Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to apply, wear, and remove them as part of a skincare ritual!

Step 1: Wash the affected area with a moisturizing cream cleanser.

This helps ensure that oil and debris left on the skin do not interfere with the adhesion of the silicone pads.

Step 2: Remove the silicone patches to use.

Lift the top plate. Remove the plastic protectors. Apply the patches on the forehead, around the eyes and mouth, on the neck and chest. Just about anywhere you want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Let it act from 1 to 8 hours, relax!

Step 3: Remove silicone patches after use.

To remove the silicone patch, simply peel it away from the skin in a slow upward motion, continuing to pull until the entire silicone patch comes off.

Step 4: Store the silicone patches.

When you’re done, you can wash the silicone patches to remove any oil or residue. Store them in the tray provided until next use! Use 15-30 times, before opening a new package of silicone patches.
