Wrinkles Schminkles Forehead Wrinkle Patches is a USA-made 100% medical grade silicone patch designed to improve creasing of the forehead and area in between the eyebrows (a.k.a. frown lines or 11's). Intended to be worn overnight or during the day, the patches work by holding the skin taut, preventing moisture loss, and increasing blood flow to the skin. When used over time, the patches can also stimulate collagen production.
WRINKLES SCHMINKLES FAQS
Q) What are your Silicone Patches made out of?
A) Our wrinkle patches are made out of 100% Medical Grade Silicone – and its this pure Medical Grade Silicone that delivers exceptional results, overnight!
Q) What adhesive is used to keep the Silicone Pads in place?
A) The adhesive is 100% Medical Grade Silicone, making our pads hypoallergenic. No latex, no parabens, no nasties!
Q) How do your Silicone Pads work?
A) Wrinkles Schminkles is a fun brand name, backed by real science. Formulated with the same technology as the Medical Grade Silicone used on scarring, its not surprising we are recommended by Plastic Surgeons, Dermatologists and Skin Experts globally who recognize the benefits of 100% Medical Grade Silicone Pads on the skin. When you apply our Silicone Pads to the skin, your skin is unable to crease or wrinkle while you sleep or while worn during the day. The pads are kept in place – comfortably and securely – using the gentle adhesive silicone, keeping the skin taut so that no new wrinkles or lines can form overnight. Additionally, medical grade silicone is proven to create hydration and moisture while bringing blood flow to the surface of the skin to stimulate collagen.
Q) How long until I will start to see results?
A) Most of our customers report seeing a result after the very first nights use! This is because the skin has not been allowed to crease or wrinkle. You will also get better results overtime, as the properties of the Medical Grade Silicone will create hydration and moisture, increase blood flow and can stimulate collagen.
Q) How long does the wrinkle-relieving effect last?
A) Our Silicone Patches work in 3 main ways:
- They keep the skin taut so it can’t crease or wrinkle
- They create a microclimate between the skin and the product by drawing hydration and moisture from the deeper layer of the skin up though the epidermis (exactly Medical Grade Silicone works to heal scars)
- Stimulates collagen production
Therefore, there is an immediate effect of the Silicone Patches from the very first night you use them as the skin has not been able to wrinkle! Then, because of the hydration and collagen production you will enjoy cumulative results overtime. 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 - creates hydration and moisture in a microclimate while stimulating collagen.
Q) How long should I wear the Silicone Pads for during the day in order to start seeing results?
A) This will be different for different skin types…we have makeup artists who use our undereye pads to prep skin for 20 mins before makeup. We have customers who use the mouth pads for 1-2 hours at home during day and are successfully softening lines. Basically, the more you wear our pads, the more you’ll see wrinkle-free results!
Q) How many uses can I get out of my Silicone Patches?
A) Each Wrinkles Schminkles Smoothing Kit contains enough product to give you 20-30 uses per pack, depending on your skin type. It is important to note that it is 20-30 uses per pack rather than 20-30 uses per Silicone Patch, as the facial Silicone Pads are a thinner formulation than the Chest and Neck. If you find you are getting slightly less uses, it will just be down to your skin type and how you care for the Silicone Patches in between uses e.g. storage, cleaning.
Q) How do I use my Silicone Patches?
A) Our reusable Silicone Patches are easy to use and are the perfect addition to your nightly skincare routine to ensure you wake up looking and feeling younger.
- Cleanse and dry skin keeping it free of ANY skincare
- Peel away plastic layer of the Silicone Patch to reveal adhesive
- Stick Silicone Patch on target area, adhesive side on skin
- Wear while you sleep for best results or 1-2 hours for a boost
- Gently peel off Patches, sticking them on the enclosed storage sheet
- Clean patches if required or every few uses with our Cleaning Solution
Q) How often should I be using my Silicone Patches?
A) Like all skincare, the more you use our Silicone Patches, the better the results you will get, especially given you will prevent the skin from further creasing and wrinkles forming. However, 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 pads just the night before a special event e.g. wedding, parties, and get more uses out of their Smoothing Kit, whereas others like to use their Silicone Patches every night in order to treat existing wrinkles plus prevent new ones forming. Many makeup artists like using our pads to prep the skin before makeup application. For example, our Eye Smoothing Kit 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 pads, but prolonged use of the pads will ultimately result in the best possible wrinkle-free outcome!
Q) Can I wash my Silicone Patches with an antibacterial soap or other detergent?
A) No other soaps except our specially formulated Cleaning Solution should be used to clean the Silicone Pads. Our Cleaning Solution removes any traces of products/perfumes/skincare without breaking down the adhesive of your Silicone Pads. In lieu of purchasing the Cleaning Solution, you can rinse them in luke warm water which will remove any dust particles etc but may not break down any potential skin oils or traces of skincare/product.
Q) What if my Silicone Patches are too big and won’t fit my desired area of use. What do I do?
A) As all women’s face shapes can be very different, it can be difficult to create a ‘one-size fits all’ Silicone Patch! Instead we have created a ‘one-size fits most’, and as instructed on the back of the packaging you can then trim the edges of your Silicone Pad with sharp scissors to design the perfect shape for your face.
Q) Are your 100% Medical Grade Silicone Patches safe to use when breastfeeding or pregnant?
A) Our products are made with 100% Medical Grade Silicone and manufactured in an FDA approved lab. Our products are hypoallergenic meaning that the most sensitive skin types will usually not have a reaction to our products. We have plenty of women who love using our range during pregnancy (especially as you are forced to side sleep!) and breastfeeding. However, as everyone’s skin type and sensitivities are different, especially during pregnancy, we always recommend you consult your Doctor or at a minimum try the Silicone Patches on the skin for an hour or so before sleeping with them for a full night.
Q) How is your Medical Grade Silicone different to the Silicone Sheeting used to heal caesarean and other scars?
A) Our Medical Grade Silicone Pads are the same science and ingredients that are used to manufacture silicone sheeting that’s used for caesarean scar and other scar treatment. We have simply created a different formulation that’s thicker in consistency to work best for wrinkles.
Q) Are your Silicone Pads Vegan or Cruelty free?
A) Yes, our Silicone Pads are Animal cruelty-free and therefore are vegan friendly also
Q) Are your Silicone Pads organic or natural or considered ‘clean beauty’?
A) Our Silicone Pads are not organic or natural but they are non-transdermal meaning nothing is infused into the product and nothing imparts into the skin. For this reason, many organisations consider our products to ‘clean beauty’ products.
Q) If I wear the Silicone Patches at night, what does this mean for my usual skincare routine?
A) Although it is advised that you wear your Silicone Patches on clean, dry, product-free skin, this does not mean that you have to completely change your established skincare routine! Simply make our wrinkle pads apart of your night time beauty regime and continue with your usual skincare during the day. If you are using products like Vitamin A in the evenings, then just interchange and use our Silicone Patches some nights and your usual skincare other evenings. Even try this for a month and once you see the visible difference on your skin, you will no longer be concerned about forgoing your usual skincare routine!
Q) Who can use your Silicone Patches?
A) Both men and women who want to correct or prevent signs of ageing or wrinkles on their décolletage, eyes, forehead or mouth! Our products are also suitable for pregnant women and individuals who would like to de-wrinkle pre-event e.g. wedding.
