How many times have you awoken to a big, red bump on your forehead right before an important event? To many of us, this scenario doesn’t seem out of the realm of ordinary, and a recent study suggests that acne sufferers may soon experience a form of quick relief with the Active Oplon Acne Patch.
Currently in its test stages, the acne patch is said to help spot-treat acne by killing bacteria on the skin, and then eliminating dead skin cells with a combination of azelaic, citric, and salicylic acids and benzoyl peroxide, which are often found in over-the-counter acne treatments. Study results suggest that the patch can help treat acne lesions within 24 hours of its use. Pretty good, right?!
This beauty breakthrough has a lot of acne sufferers hoping that the clinical trials will go well, and if they do, the acne patch may soon be available in the states. So, beauty friends, would you consider using the patch to treat your acne?
