Wrinkle Patches to soften deep wrinkles / treatment mask to smooth and nourish the surface layers of the skin. Are you wondering what to do about crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, smile lines, or under eye aging? Frownies has a patch to address your concerns. Frownies facial patches reviewshave hundreds of users raving about results, but what can you expect? Do Frownies really work? When you say Frownies we think brand, but many consumers mean to say do Frownies Facial Patches work? For you comfort I will call the patches Frownies without adding Facial Patches.
“Do Frownies really work?” and “Do Frownies work permanently?”
Let me explain how Frownies work. The muscle on the face is attached to the skin by “ceramides” (more about that later). The face is the only place on the body where muscle and skin are attached. When you move the muscles to make expressions the skin is also moved. When a crease is formed in the muscle from frowning, smiling, furrowing your brow, or lifting your eyebrows the skin is creased as well. Over time the crease become static, and it may look like a permanent scowl.
Frownies are placed over the creases that have been smoothed by you massaging and gently separating them, so the skin is smoothed as well as the muscle. Frownies have a skin friendly adhesive on them and when it dries the patch forms a splint that will not let the muscle pull back into the creased position. This is how Frownies Patches work!
"Frownies vs any silicone patch"
This is discussed below but for now theFacial Patchcannot be compared to silicone that is hydrating and plumping the skin using moisture from below the surface of the skin.
Frownies act like a splint holding the muscles flat and smooth. If the creases (wrinkles) are just beginning the Frownies Facial Patch can quickly help the body heal and reshape the muscle. Some dermatologists have called deep wrinkles injuries in the muscle but Frownies holding them firmly can allow the body to heal the crease.
If the crease is just beginning, you will need to wear the patch for 3-5 days and you will see the wrinkle go away and stay gone all day and even many days. Over time you will recreate the wrinkle with your expressions. If you are very expressive you may learn to relax your expressions by wearing frownies or you may choose to wear the Frownies more often.
If the crease is already very deep you will need to wear the patch for 30 nights, to retrain the muscle to lay flat and you may need to continue to wear it nightly until you see results lasting all day or many days without reapplying the patch.
Frownies Facial patches for the forehead and between the eyes are one style and Frownies Facial Patches for the corners of the mouth and between the eyes are a second style.
On clean skin massage the crease, open the wrinkle if it is deep, and wet the back of the Facial Patch, apply it directly over the crease that has been separated by you. Hold the patch for a few seconds or if needed to adhere it to the skin. Look at your face is the wrinkle continuing out the sides of the patch? If so, use another patch to cover the entire line. Continue to lap the patches over each other at the edges until you form your custom-tailored patch to fit on your face, immobilizing the muscles of the forehead that are used to create the wrinkle. If the patch is creating a new line on its edges you need to make the patch larger by overlapping another patch. The patch should not make a new line if it is placed correctly. Frownies do work for almost everyone. If you have sensitive skin try a patch test on your wrist first before placing the patch on your face.
“How do I help Marionette lines?”
Smile lines and wrinkles around the mouth may be a little different. The box ofFrownies Facial Patches labeled Corner of Eyes and Mouthare a different shape but the same paper patch with an adhesive on the back side. Separate the pieces and place the butterfly shape patch at the corner of your mouth lifting and separating the smile lines or marionette lines. The extra diamond shape can be used to make the butterfly patch larger covering more of the smile lines or on the corner of the eyes or even on the forehead. Marionette lines are the most difficult if they are advanced. Understanding how Frownies work should help you to understand if they will be what you need. The Corner of Mouth patch lifts the crease forward not up. Up would be against gravity forward is supporting the cheek muscles. Remember Frownies are lifting as crease out of a muscle helping the muscle lay smooth and relaxed in its original position. The patches can be placed on the face anywhere there is a crease in the muscle not under the eyes or on the eyelid because the muscles there are not attached to the surface skin.
"How do I work on lip lines?"
Gentle Liftswork with the same concept as the Facial Patches but are small for tight areas. They were created for lip lines and around the mouth if the Facial Patches are too large. Gentle Lifts may be pieced together to form a line also see the images on the product page.
“How do I help dark circles or under eye wrinkles and fine lines?”
Frownies Eye Gelsare for the soft tissue under the eyes. Apply the patches and leave them on 15 to 30 minutes. Frownies Eye Gels are not an overnight patch and do not stick to the skin they are a transdermal patch used as an at home spa like treatment to soften and nourish the under-eye area. Vitamin B3 in the gel helps to increase circulation and by doing so assist the body in reducing dark circles and building collagen.
"What is addressing the surface layers of the skin?"
Cotton soft Serum Patchis addressing the surface layers of the skin. This is the frownies vs sio or any silicone patch comparison. Silicone patches do not address the muscles so there is no comparison to the Facial Patch, but Silicone patches do lock in moisture that is under the skin plumping the skin temporarily. Frownies Cotton Serum Patch adds beneficial nutrients and lipids to the surface of the skin to build the barrier layer of the skin. Serum Patch softens fine lines by hydrating with the addition of nourishing ingredients to the skin.
"What is the best wrinkle patch?"
Frownies are the first face patch on the market and have been helping women for decades. The technology was the idea of a woman. The secret to smoothing wrinkles with facial patches was a well-kept beauty secret between Broadway + Hollywood stars and makeup artists for generations. From this rich history until today, FROWNIES stand the test of time by effectively reducing signs of aging by minimizing the appearance of expression lines.Read Less
