From dermal fillers to microneedling people are increasingly looking towards more invasive procedures to turn back the clock and rejuvenate their skin. But what if I said you could enjoy the results of these salon treatments safely in the comfort of your own home?
More than just an ordinary eyepatch the Acropass Ageless Lifter Eyezone Care (4 pairs, RRP £48)* is a revolutionary beauty device that delivers the active skincare ingredients directly to where it is needed most. Whilst most skincare products simply sit on the skin Acropass utilises a new technology called TransDermal Nano patch – a patented process of microstructures contained in a patch -which can deliver hyaluronic acid into the epidermis without causing any damage or discomfort. Developed by a team at the forefront of transdermal innovation technology in Korea for the UK based company Skinova Cosmeceuticals this is truly a revolutionary product in the world of anti-aging, and I’m so excited to share this product with you on the blog and giveaway a pack of these fantastic patches to one very lucky reader!
Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the skin and is involved in tissue repair and hydration due to its ability to retain 1000 times its own weight in water, but its large molecular size makes it too large to penetrate the epidermis. With Acropass the unique microstructures, which are 1/4 the thickness of human hair, penetrate the the epidermis and slowly dissolve, delivering Hyaluronic acid and EGF deep into the skin, yet causing no damage.
Each Acropass patch contains 100% of the highest quality French Hyaluronic Acid and Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) to moisturise, lift and rejuvenate the skin. Applied at night time on cleansed skin the process is completely pain free and safe. After use you simply peel off the patch with no visible trace on the skin other than a natural plumpness and fewer lines and wrinkles in the treated area. Another benefit is the needling effect, achieved in a way similar to microneedling but without the discomfort or side effects, that can help stimulate the production of collagen in the skin.
It is recommended you apply the patches twice per week for the first month and once per week thereafter for maintenance. The microstructures are fully absorbed after two hours and can be used at any time of the day but many people find night time use most convenient.
Upon application the tiny microstructures can feel quite strange, as you feel them pricking the skin slightly. I’d say it was more of a warm sensation than actual pain however and it soon dissipated. I left the patches on overnight to allow for maximum absorption of the ingredients and once removed my under eye area looked bright, plump and well-rested. The fine dehydration lines also appeared reduced. I was definitely impressed and found them much more beneficial than any other undereye patches I’ve used in the past.
