How do pimple patches work? Need to know

Do you know how pimple patches work? Today I will tell you how it works. I will also tell you what kind of acne works well. Read the whole article well to know everything. 


*Pimple patches may work on surface-level acne-like pus-filled pimples and blackheads but aren’t effective for cystic acne.

*They’re made with zit-drying hydrocolloid, and many products have additional acne-fighting ingredients.

*It’s best to consult with a dermatologist for the most effective treatment plan for your skin.
                  
How do pimple patches work?

There are a few advantages to using acne patches:

  • They protect your pimple from rubbing and touching (whether you’re doing it subconsciously or just rubbing your face on your pillow at night), which can lead to infection and scarring
  • They can create a moist environment for faster and better healing
  • They can deliver active ingredients to your pimple and the bandage can make them penetrate more effectively
  • They can absorb fluid from your pimple
  • They can protect your pimple from UV light, which can decrease pigmentation
  • They’re usually waterproof, so you don’t need to reapply them every time you wash your face

There are two types of acne patches: hydrocolloid bandages and treatment patches.


A hydrochloride bandage is a flexible bandage made of water-repellent material attached to a thin plastic film. The bandage is stuck in an open wound with the water-absorbing film facing downwards. Hydrochloride was originally made to be used for ulcers but they have become more popular for acne especially in Asia.

The hard, outer plastic film usually contains polyurethane and holds everything in place, as well as prevents water from evaporating and the wound from drying out, so the wound hardens new skin that is softer rather than firmer and stiffer. It protects the wound against abrasions and scratches.

Water-absorbing ingredients are usually made up of carboxymethyl cellulose, gelatin and/or pectin, which have many water-binding groups in their chemical structure. It removes fluid from the wound. As the liquid enters the bandage, it turns from transparent to white and swells, which means you get a very satisfactory white spot.



There are some advantages to using these treatment patches instead of applying a normal product:

The patch increases penetration of the active ingredients due to occlusion – the patch keeps the skin under it moist, which increases skin permeability. On the flip side, if you’re sensitive to anything in the patch or if your skin isn’t clean, your reaction will be amplified
The patch keeps the active ingredient in place so it doesn’t get rubbed off accidentally

The patch protects your pimple from rubbing and touching, and it keeps the wound moist so it heals faster and better
Even though the active ingredients are usually the same, the patches perform differently so it’s a good idea to read some reviews of them before choosing one to buy.
