Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a very large water-soluble glycosaminoglycan molecule. Roughly 15 grams of HA is present in the average human body at all times. About 1/3 of the HA in our bodies is turned over (degraded and synthesized) every day. HA’s a lubricating molecule that holds over 1,000 times its weight in water.
As we age, HA production in the skin (and other bodily tissues) decreases rapidly, so the cushiony softness of youthful moist skin gives way to less firm, more dehydrated skin. The dreaded wrinkles start to show up!
Why does the Cross-Linked Hyaluronic Acid in Overnight Microfiller (OM) Patches work so much longer than regular Hyaluronic Acid?
Unless Hyaluronic Acid is treated by a Cross-Linking process, the natural occurring enzyme in your skin – Hyaluronidase – will “digest” it. Regular HA virtually “disintegrates” within hours.
Because we use CLHA, the longevity of this treatment in your skin’s tissues is superlative – up to 7X times longer than any other dissolving patch. And, we have a worldwide exclusive patent on this use of CLHA.
The Cross-Linked Hyaluronic Acid Gel that composes our super-fine needles dissolves naturally into your skin – at the same time attracting and locking in maximum water into your skin. The dissolved CLHA acts like micro-sponges to keep your skin moist, plump and supple.
All other dissolving microneedle patches in the market use regular Hyaluronic Acid - which while great at holding up to 1,000 X’s its weight in water in your skin – will only have filling effects that last up to 1 DAY!
1 Day vs. 7 DAYS! That’s significantly more effective and convenient!
Seems like an obvious concern, right? No worries, our OMPatches have a special design that’s very fine and streamlined - made to work painlessly. It’s so effective, we even have a patent on this shape. When you apply the patches, all you’ll feel is a little tingle that goes away in a minute or two.
OMPatches are engineered to totally dissolve within 4 hours after application. We suggest you apply them before bed and remove them when you wake up.
Wash and dry your skin thoroughly. Do not apply anything to your skin prior to applying patches.
Choose the exact location where you want to apply your patches, before peeling off the backing. Apply the patches at a 90% angle onto your treatment area.
Once you’ve applied the patch, do not attempt to move it! The microneedles are super-fine and will break off if you attempt to remove and reapply a patch.
Also, do not rub the patch! Again, rubbing would break the fine needles off, so you wouldn’t get the desired levels of CLHA into your skin.
It’s best to apply firm pressure on the patch for a minute or two to be certain it’s well adhered. If you can see the patch lifting, simply reapply pressure to the patch until it’s well attached.
Our patches are designed to target fine lines and wrinkles, specifically crow’s feet at the sides of the eyes. Results are measurable in a single treatment, with more pronounced effects over prolonged use.
Besides the filling effects of our CLHA, the patch microneedles stimulate your body to produce more of its’ own collagen. So, regular use is a good idea!
Additional areas that can benefit from regular use of OM Patches are traditionally tougher areas to treat – such as upper lip lines, frown lines between the eyebrows, and smile lines that extend from the outer corners of your nose to the outer edge of your lips. Keep in mind, these areas can achieve great results, too, but may take a little longer to reach your desired effect, depending on the condition of your skin.
Deep lines and furrows are permanent wounds to the structure of your skin. They don’t disappear. But, with regular long-term use of the patches, you will see improvement in the quality and appearance of this skin, too. It will likely take more time – be patient.
Absolutely! Men find the patches to be an easy, effective alternative to esthetics treatments. They can apply OMPatches in the privacy and convenience of their own home.
Since Miracle in a Night’s OMPatch microneedles are designed with the highest grade Cross-Linked Hyaluronic Acid (CLHA) Gel, the filling effects last for up to 7 days in your skin, before subtly fading away.
On average, the greatest filling effects show up between day 3-5 following your application of the patches. Visualize a sponge gradually plumping up…
It’s best to use the patches on a regular weekly schedule to keep the skin plumped, moist and youthful.
Be sure to use your patches as soon as you open the plastic container inside the pouch. Keep unused patch pouches stored at room temperature. Never refrigerate or freeze unused patches, as this would destroy the CLHA gel.
