There is a good reason that Frownies Facial Patches has been Hollywood’s best kept secret for over 130 years – They work! Although there are a number of similar products on the market today, Frownies, the Original Wrinkle Patch, is superior for many reasons:
- Frownies Facial Patches train facial muscles.
Similar to Botox, the intention of Frownies Facial Patches is to immobilize the underlying facial muscles through their unique design of weighted paper and water-activated adhesive. Frownies Facial Patches create a cast to prevent the facial muscles from moving; therefore, allowing the skin to smooth out over a relaxed muscle. Over time, Frownies help retrain the facial muscles to relax, release tension, and lay flat.
- Frownies Facial Patches may be shaped to fit individual needs.
Every forehead is shaped differently! In order to create a full forehead cast covering the entire targeted area – from hairline to browline, including between the eyebrows, and from temple to temple, which may also include a patch at the corner of the eyes to address any crow’s feet – you need to be able to customize the placement of the patches to your unique needs.

- Frownies Facial Patches may be worn over individualized skincare routine.
Frownies Facial Patches do not contain any active ingredients. Everyone has a different skincare routine with varying products. Frownies Facial Patches may be applied over most moisturizers and serums. Make sure you allow enough time for them to absorb fully into your skin.
And because Frownies Facial Patches do not contain active ingredients, they are safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding!
- Frownies Facial Patches are cost effective.
Each box of Frownies Facial Patches contains 144 individual shapes that can be applied in any pattern that fits your forehead and your needs. Our customers report one box of patches will last anywhere from one month to four months - Or more! This makes Frownies Facial Patches a fraction of the price of other facial patches on the market!
- Frownies Facial Patches are one-time use only.
Frownies Facial Patches are one-time use only – And you should prefer it that way! Because they are not reusable, you do not have to worry about bacteria or mold growing on the patches that you apply to your face – YUCK! You do not need to clean Frownies Facial Patches to make them safe and sanitary to reapply to your skin.
But Frownies Facial Patches are eco-friendly because…
- Frownies Facial Patches are recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable!
Frownies Facial Patches are made from weighted paper with a water-activated adhesive making the patches recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable.
