PRESENTING THE SCIENCE BEHIND AQUA ANTI-WRINKLE PATCHES
DOCTOR TRUSTED & ENDORSED
Featuring medical grade silicone, Aqua Anti-Wrinkle Patches are designed to sit comfortably on the skin where they compress it and promote a flat, smooth appearance. The patches also act to hydrate the skin and support its ability to retain moisture
These actions help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles – often allowing users to see results within hours.
Silicone has actually been used by medical professionals to treat scarred and burned skin for over 30 years. Aqua has taken this safe, effective treatment and made it available to people of all skin types with its patent pending cosmetic treatment.
How Aqua Anti-Wrinkle Patches Work:
Before we get to how Aqua works to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it’s important to understand why our skin wrinkles to begin with.
There are five basic causes of wrinkles
Exposure to the sun’s harsh UV rays can damage and dry out the skin. Called “photoaging,” this process involves the UV rays breaking up the bonds that exist between skin molecules such as elastin and collagen. With these fibers weakened or broken, the skin begins to droop and sag and wrinkle.
Sleeping with the side of your face against a pillow can put pressure on the skin and cause it to fold and compress, which causes wrinkles. This is because the folds and creases break collagen and elastin bonds. As we get older, collagen and elastin lose the ability to heal these broken bonds and the lines and creases become permanent.
Simply put, if you exfoliate your skin too much or use harsh products or frequently push and tug on your skin you can create damage. This damage taxes healing skin cells like fibroblasts and keratinocytes, which causes a decrease in production of collagen and elastin. As we’ve already learned, decreased collagen and elastin eventually lead to wrinkles in the skin.
Reduction In The Amount Of Collagen
This happens gradually as we age. Some experts say that we produce about 1% less collagen each year after the age of 20. As collagen becomes more and more scarce, the skin loses its shape and smoothness and wrinkles are formed. Collagen is basically the building block of skin and with less of it the skin begins to show signs of stress.
Action Of Our Muscles
Muscle contractions, like smiling or frowning or squinting, can crease the skin and with repeated action ultimately cause wrinkles to develop there. Again, the wrinkles form because the muscle action breaks the collagen elastin bonds.
NOW THAT WE KNOW THE CAUSE OF WRINKLES, HERE’S HOW AQUA ANTI-WRINKLE PATCHES FIX THE PROBLEM
Aqua patches are formulated to use silicone to help the skin look younger and fresher by reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Every precaution has been taken to ensure the patches are comfortable and highly effective. They are meant to allow users to improve their skin without undergoing expensive medical procedures like laser resurfacing, chemical peels or fillers.
The silicone in Aqua patches creates a special environment between itself and the skin that acts to draw up the moisture in the skin to the surface layer. This process is called “occlusion” and it is a powerful way for the skin to plump and smooth itself.
The patches are also designed to use compression to keep the skin flat and prevent wrinkling that can occur from lying on a pillow or from repetitive muscle action, such as squinting or smiling or frowning.
The combination of silicone and compression forms a powerful one-two punch that is highly effective at drawing moisture to the surface of the skin and plumping the skin so that wrinkles and fine lines are filled in and disappear.
Aqua patches are gentle on the skin and work on all skin types. They are ideal for creating an environment that prevents new wrinkling while also eliminating old wrinkles. Due to their effectiveness at wrinkle prevention, it is recommended that they be used consistently. They are great for treatment of expression wrinkles, sun exposure, wrinkles around the brows, saggy skin, compression wrinkles and more.
