Real people, real results
We’ve got answers brought to you by Software’s skincare experts.
Our AHA/BHA Pimple Patches feature microdarts containing alpha, beta, and poly hydroxy acids. When the patch is applied, the microdarts penetrate the skin and the acids are released directly into the pimple. The acids work together to reduce the size and severity of the blemish. Meanwhile, other ingredients provide anti-bacterial benefits, repair damaged skin, and stimulate collagen growth.
The patches can be applied at any stage of the pimple’s life cycle. The microdarts are designed to deliver the AHAs and BHAs throughout the different layers of your skin, effectively targeting both surface-level pimples and deep, blind pimples underneath.
There is no need to prick or pop the pimple before applying the patch. Generally, people will pop a pimple to ensure that active ingredients reach the centre of the pimple, but we designed our patches with microdarts that deliver the treatment through the head of the pimple with minimal interruption to the skin. This helps to minimise trauma to the skin and reduce the risk of scarring when you pop a pimple.
You should see results after wearing a pimple patch for two hours. For particularly stubborn spots, you might like to use two pimple patches consecutively (four hours wear time).
Yes, Software’s pimple patches work on all kinds of acne. Each patch contains three different hydroxy acids (alpha, beta, and poly), which work together to penetrate the pimple at different layers, including deep under the skin.
Yes. Blackheads are the result of dead skin cells and impurities blocking hair follicles.
The AHAs and BHAs used in Software’s pimple patches are excellent exfoliators which can help to remove these impurities and draw out blockages from the follicle. Salicylic Acid Wash can be used in tandem with the patches to enhance the exfoliation process.
Our AHA/BHA Pimple Patches are more than just a simple hydrocolloid. We’ve scientifically formulated a unique blend of ingredients that work on breakouts throughout different levels of your skin, from surface to dermis. These patches offer the same skin coverage as a flat sticker, but our micro-needle technology goes several steps further to deliver active ingredients, ensuring you get maximum value from each patch.
