Su­per-Tar­geted Skincare

Prevention (USA) - - PULSE -

Doc­tors have long used medicine­in­fused patches to de­liver treatments through the skin. Now skincare brands are tak­ing a sim­i­lar ap­proach with patches for blem­ishes, wrin­kles, un­der­eye bags, and more. “They ad­here to

your face and work by cov­er­ing a spe­cific area to drive in con­cen­trated in­gre­di­ents, help­ing them pen­e­trate and de­liver faster re­sults,” ex­plains der­ma­tol­o­gist Mona Go­hara, M.D., an as­so­ciate clin­i­cal pro­fes­sor of der­ma­tol­ogy atYale School of Medicine. Skincare patches help you avoid prod­uct overuse and “re­duce the chances that a for­mula will evap­o­rate or get wiped off be­fore it can work,”

Dr. Go­hara says.Those for chapped lips or un­der­eye puffi­ness can pro­duce in­stant, tem­po­rary im­prove­ments; those for wrin­kles tend to re­quire mul­ti­ple ap­pli­ca­tions.
