What are your Silicone Patches made out of?

Our Wrinkle Patches are made out of 100% Medical Grade Silicone – and it’s this pure Medical Grade Silicone that delivers exceptional results, overnight or after a few hours! Our Patches are:
● Hypoallergenic
● Pregnancy safe
● Non-transdermal
● Non-toxic

How does the product work?

Our Silicone Patches work in 3 main ways:

1. When you apply our Silicone Patches to the skin, your skin is unable to crease or wrinkle, keeping the skin taut so that no new wrinkles or lines can form.
2. The properties of the Medical Grade Silicone work with the skin to increase blood flow to the surface, which helps carry away waste products, including free radicals, from working cells.
3. The Patches’ adherence to the skin creates a closed environment known as ‘occlusion’ where the skin can hydrate itself. This can help stimulate collagen production, resulting in visibly smoother skin.

How long until I start to see results?

Most of our customers report seeing a result after the very first night’s use! However, as everyone’s skin type is so unique, results will vary from person to person. You will get the best results over time as you use them more frequently and enable the healing properties of the Medical Grade Silicone to treat the skin as it’s proven to do as it will create hydration and moisture, stimulate collagen, and increase blood flow. The longer and more you wear your patches the better and longer lasting the results!

How long do the results last?

Your results will last as long as you are consistent with usage. Just like any skincare product - you might see amazing results after the first usage! However these results will last only as long as you are consistent. Consistency is definitely key 🔑

How long your results last are also dependent on many individual factors such as your skin type, your age, how deep your lines are to start with, do you wear sunscreen and drink water on a regular basis etc. These all factor into how long and how prominent your results shall be.

Do Patches for Wrinkles Work?

Wrinkles Schminkles Silicone Patches can help reduce the appearance of fine lines. Unlike injectables or botox - these patches are a simple, non-invasive, natural product that can aid in ageing gracefully.

How many times can I use my patch?

Each set of Wrinkles Schminkles Silicone Patches contains enough product to give you 15-20 uses per pack, depending on your skin type. It is important to note that it is 15-20 uses per pack rather than 15-20 uses per Silicone Patch, as the facial Silicone Patches are a thinner formulation than the Chest and Neck.

Chest, Neck, Hands: 15-20 uses per patch
Eyes, Forehead, Mouth: 8-10 uses per patch (15-20 per packet)

How often do I have to use the patches?

Deciding how frequently you would like to use your Silicone Patches is entirely up to you! For example, some of our customers like to use our Patches just the night before a special event. Whereas others like to use their Silicone Patches every night in order to treat existing wrinkles plus prevent new ones from forming. Many makeup artists like using our Patches to prep the skin before makeup application. For example, our Eye Wrinkle Patches can be used to prep the skin for 20 minutes before applying makeup. It is up to the customer how often they would like to use the Patches, but prolonged use of the Patches will ultimately result in the best possible wrinkle-free outcome!

Can I wear my usual skincare underneath my patches?

NO! Our Patches must be applied to freshly cleansed, dry skin.

How to clean my patches?

To clean your patches - this can be done by using just a bit of warm water (or our Silicone Patch Cleanser and drop of warm water) and wiping the adhesive with your hands. Ensuring they are completely dry before sticking them back down on your storage sheet.

The patch is too big - can I cut it?

The great thing about Silicone is that it can be easily trimmed for the perfect custom fit. We suggest trimming your Silicone Patches with sharp scissors to the desired shape for your area of application.
