What are the SilcSkin pads made of?
They are 100% medical grade silicone, the same type that is used in treating scars and burns. There are no allergy causing additives or adhesives used in the manufacturing process. They are not transdermal and therefore do not penetrate your skin.
How do the SilcSkin pads work?
The pads are designed to be worn at night to prevent and correct wrinkles. Wrinkles are treated like scars. The pads hydrate the skin, improve the collagen and flatten wrinkles. With prolonged use the pads provide Elecro static energy which starts a wound healing response and starts collagen production in the area. This causes the softening of lines and wrinkles giving your skin a more youthful and supple appearance.
How do I apply them?
The pads are to be worn on clean dry skin with absolutely no product or lotions underneath. Using lotions can interfere with the adhesive quality of the pads and can also cause rashes and reactions. Night sweats, hot flashes and perspiration can interfere with the adhesive quality of the pads as well. If you are experiencing this, wipe the skin with witch hazel and allow to dry prior to applying the pad.
How long before I will see results?
Our pads are designed to be worn while you sleep. The best results are from a prolonged period of use — about 7-8 hours. The results can also depend on the type of pad being used, since some areas of the body are more susceptible to wrinkles than others. For example, when using Decollette Pads, you should see results overnight and the results last longer as you do not recreate the wrinkle-causing position right away (usually sleeping on your side). For wrinkles around your mouth, you will see longer lasting results after about two weeks of wearing the pads.
