Different Types of Acne Patches

Have you ever had a pimple pop up right before a big day? Are you searching for a quick way to get rid of acne? But wait. Before you jump into that, let’s explore different types of acne patches.

There are a few types of acne patches to treat different acne breakouts .

Medicated patch to treat papules, pustules, and nodular & cystic acne

Non-medicated for pimples and whiteheads

Microneedle is needed for deep nodular and cystic acne

You might be wondering how do pimple patches work?

Let’s take a look at that.

Medicated acne patches are filled with active ingredients that help kill acne-causing bacteria and soothe inflammation. They reduce the bumps, pain, and redness. Also, acne patches might be a good cystic acne treatment when it comes to reducing the size of lesions caused by nodular and cystic acnes. Common active ingredients are tea tree oil and salicylic acid.

Non-medicated acne patches are another name for hydrocolloid pimple patches. These patches are cut in size and incredibly thin, and typically work by:

dehydrating your pores

preventing another infection

speeding up recovery and preventing new acne scars

Microneedle acne patches contain dissolving tiny needles to treat cystic or nodular acne. These patches help to penetrate and deliver active ingredients to a deeper layer of the skin. However, the effectiveness may vary depending on the person and the depth of the acne lesion.

Depending on your circumstances you might need to consult a dermatologist for a right acne treatment.
