What are Frownies Facial Patches?

Skip injectables with our natural, non-invasive alternative for smoother skin. Our innovative Forehead Wrinkle Patches are designed to soften and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Made with unbleached kraft paper and water-activated adhesive, Frownies Facial Patches act as a splint or cast to relax facial muscles and allow the overlying skin to lay flat thereby smoothing fine lines and wrinkles caused by repeated facial expressions. Invented in 1889, Frownies are the longest-standing wrinkle-smoothing option on the market because they WORK! Don’t just take our word for it; check out the before-and-after pictures from our customers and see the incredible transformations for yourself!

How to apply for best results

Frownies Facial Patches should always be applied to clean, dry, skin. After washing your face and applying your skincare, give the skincare time to absorb into the skin. You will then be ready to apply your Facial Patches.

When you open your box of Frownies Facial Patches for wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyes you will find long strips of paper patches that are perforated into triangles. We recommend you tear the patches along the perforations to separate them into triangles.

Once the triangles are separated, you will notice there is a shiny side and a matte side. Spray the shiny side of the patches with Frownies Rose Water Hydrator (or use warm water if you do not have our Rose Water). Use your finger to spread the water around on the back of the patch to be sure you are wetting all of the adhesive.

Once you have sprayed the patch, set it down on your countertop to give the adhesive a moment to get tacky. Proceed to spray several more patches and set them down. You will start to notice the patches beginning to curl as the adhesive is getting tacky; this is a signal that your Frownies are ready to be applied to the face.

Gently massage the area where you will be placing your Frownies. Hold the skin smooth with your fingers (do not pull on the skin), apply one patch at a time, overlapping the patches as you go.

Once you apply the patches, continue to press on them until they adhere to the skin. It helps to hold them down for about 15-20 seconds once you have them on.

We recommend applying the first patch in between the brows and then extending out from there; covering the full forehead from the eyebrows to the hairline and from hairline to hairline side to side.

This is the most effective application technique whether you have only eleven lines, forehead lines, or both. The facial muscles are connected and in order to relax the muscles and smooth the lines you want to cover the full forehead until you achieve the results you are looking for.

Wear your Frownies Facial Patches every single night for the first 30 days to begin to build some muscle memory and retrain the muscles to relax. After the first 30 days you can reevaluate and decide if you need to continue wearing them nightly or if you are able to wear them less often (a few nights a week). It will be different for everyone depending on how expressive you are, how deep your lines were to start, skin type, and age.

When you remove the Facial Patch in the morning we recommend using a lot of warm water and gently sliding your fingers under the patches as you splash them with water. Be patient, go slowly, and be gentle with removal. If you are someone who showers in the morning you can get in the shower with them on and the warm water and steam will help dissolve the adhesive.

If you like to work out in the morning we have a lot of customers who leave their Frownies on during their workout and sweat them off!

If you ever have questions or struggle with application or removal feel free to contact us. We are very active on social media and sending us a message on facebook or instagram will help us get you the fastest response as well as helpful videos and tips!

Understand the details

What are Frownies Facial Patches for the forehead and between eyes wrinkles?

Frownies Facial Patches are non-invasive wrinkle reducing patches worn while you sleep or for a minimum of three hours. Frownies Facial Patches act to form a cast, holding the facial muscles flat, preventing expressions that cause wrinkles. Frownies Facial Patches also release tension in the muscles which helps to smooth existing lines.

Frownies Facial Patches have been safely used by women for over 130 years. Additionally, product safety testing has been conducted under the control of dermatologists, to ensure that Frownies are non irritant, and hypoallergenic.

Frownies Facial Patches are HRIPT tested: tested by a dermatologist, to be hypoallergenic, non-irritating and suitable for sensitive skin.

We have tested a variety of materials for our patches and paper is the safest and healthiest for the skin. Because silicone and latex are common allergens, Frownies patches and products are Latex and silicone free.

If you have concerns about the adhesive reacting with your skin or your skin​care, test the product or the products together on your forearm or wrist.

The adhesive sticks to the skin and does not absorb into the skin just like a Band-Aid or skin glue. The adhesive is water activated so it will release without any irritation to the skin when properly wet to remove.

You ask and we answer FAQ'S

Q: What are Frownies Facials made of?
A: Frownies Facial Patches are made from unbleached, kraft paper and a water-activated starch-based adhesive. Paper allows the skin to breath, unlike silicones that occlude the skin.

Q: Do I have to use Frownies Facial Patches every night?
A: We recommend using Frownies Facial Patches every night for 30 days. After you have achieved the results you're looking for, you may be able to wear your Frownies less often for maintenance.

Q: How long does one box last?
A: Each box of Frownies Facial Patches contains a long strip of perforated paper that can be torn into 144 individual patches. Typically our customers wear 4-6 patches per night when creating the full forehead cast we recommend. In general, you will get approximately 25 - 35 applications or about one month of nightly wear from one box.

Q: Sometimes the Frownies leaves an imprint on my skin around the edges, what am I doing wrong?
A: We recommend covering the full forehead to splint the entire forehead muscle, overlapping the patches to minimize imprints around each patch. When you apply the patches be careful not to pull or over stretch the skin. After removing your patches apply Frownies Moisturizer or Skin Serum and the imprint will quickly fade.

Q: The Frownies are a little too large is it okay to cut it to a smaller size?
A: Yes. Trim the edges down to a size that is comfortable for you.

Q: Does the shiny backing peel off?
A: No. The shiny backing is a starch-based adhesive that is water activated. Simply moisten the shiny side with Frownies Rose Water Hydrator Spray or warm water.

Q: I am having trouble making the patch stick what am I doing wrong?
A: Make sure you are applying the patch to freshly washed skin and that all your skincare is fully absorbed. Wet the patches with 1-2 pumps of Rose Water Hydrator Spray or warm water, then wait -- up to 90 seconds -- for the patch to begin to curl and the adhesive to become tacky.

Q: Can I use my night creams with Frownies?
A: Frownies Moisturizer is a perfect compliment to the patches because it absorbs quickly. If trying the patches with other creams or moisturizers make sure you allow at least 15 minutes absorption time before applying the patch.

Q: Can I use Frownies Facial Patches with "Retinol," "Tretinoin," and/or "Retin A" creams?
A: We recommend consulting your physician prior to adding new products to your skincare routine. We do not recommend using Frownies Facial Patches on skin that is already irritated or peeling.

Q: Will the ingredients in Frownies Facial Patches react with my other products?
A: Frownies Facial Patches do not contain "active" ingredients. However, as with any new skincare product, we suggest performing a patch test to determine your own sensitivities.

Q: What are the active ingredients in Frownies Facial Patches?
A: There are no active ingredients. Frownies act as a splint or a cast, retraining the muscles to relax into a smooth position.

Q: Can the Frownies Facial Patches be used on the neck?
A: Frownies Facial Patches are not designed for the neck area. We recommend the Frownies Apple Serum Neck Mask or Frownies CHIN-UP Polypeptide Neck Mask to address skincare concerns on the neck.

Q: Can Frownies Facial Patches be used under my eyes?
A: Frownies Facial Patches are not designed for the under eye area. We recommend using our Frownies Under Eye Gels, Frownies Apple Stem Cell Serum, and Frownies Eye Cream for the area under the eyes.

Q: Are these products gluten free/vegan?
A: Most Frownies products are vegan, although we are not certified as gluten-free. Frownies products are made with natural, plant-based ingredients!

Q: What is the shelf life of the Frownies Facial Patches?
A: The Frownies Facial Patches will keep indefinitely as long as they are kept in a cool, dry place.

11 lines disappearing!

I applied Frownies wrong and they still helped. I just applied again and this time I got it just right. Awesome product. I have been using anti wrinkle creams for over a year and the lines don't go away. I used the frownies on my 11 lines ONE TIME, and they are almost gone. I had seen reviews and seen that they have a strong scent, it does have scent but I... Read more

Exceeds Expectations!

I turned 40 this year and was feeling the need for Botox for my forehead lines and my 11’s. I came across this product on Insta, ordered and have been using them for 3 months already. These patches exceeded my expectations and actually work! Everyone should be using these! Thank you!

They actually work!

I can't believe the wrinkle reduction on my forehead! I am 1.5 months in and the wrinkles have been drastically reduced. A friend of mine commented on how smooth my forehead has become. They aren't completely gone because I am terrible about wearing Frownies every day. But when I do- WOW. Trust the process and you will see results over time. It won't happen overnight like with Botox, but with Frownies, you aren't injecting toxins into your face. Also, you still have use of your facial muscles! That's a huge win.

How Frownies Work

Facial muscle contractions create dynamic lines on your face to show facial expressions. However, over time, these repeated facial movements can lead to the formation of static lines, including fine lines and wrinkles, that are seen when your face is at rest. Frownies Facial Patches work by targeting the underlying facial muscle to smooth and soften static expression lines.

Our foreheadfacial patches are made from weighted, unbleached kraft paper and water-activated, starch-based adhesive. Our wrinkle patches come in a long strip of 144 patches that are perforated for easy tearing to fit your unique facial structure. Once applied, Frownies Facial Patches harden to create a splint or a cast to relax facial tension, retrain facial muscles, and lift the overlying skin to smooth and soften static lines caused by repeated facial expressions.

Simple. Natural. Effective.

Frownies Facial Patches are unique in that they contain no active skincare ingredients. Made simply with weighted, unbleached kraft paper and water-activated, starch-based adhesive, Frownies Facial Patches act as a splint or cast to retrain facial muscle movements to smooth static expression lines and lift existing wrinkles. Frownies Facial Patches are free from artificial fragrances, latex, silicone, and parabens. All Frownies Patches, including our forehead patches, are HRIPT third-party dermatologist tested and are clinically proven to be non-irritating, non-comedogenic, and safe for sensitive skin. Our skincare products are cruelty-free and never tested on animals. You will love the natural-looking results you achieve with Frownies Facial Patches. Unlike injectables, our facial patches do not prevent dynamic facial movement allowing you to continue to make natural facial expressions.

How to Apply Frownies

  1. Separate the facial patches along the perforations to the desired sizes. We recommend using the smallest, individual shapes to contour to your unique facial structure.
  2. Wet the shiny side of the facial patches with Frownies Rose Water Hydrator or warm water to activate the starch-based adhesive. Set the facial patches aside until they become tacky and begin to curl slightly, for up to 90 seconds.
  3. Gently massage the intended area of the skin for approximately 10 seconds to increase circulation and blood flow.
  4. With one hand, separate any creases in the skin while applying the facial patches with the other hand. For best results, overlap the facial patches and cover the entire forehead.
  5. Wear Frownies Facial Patches overnight, or for at least three hours, to relax facial tension and retrain facial muscles.
  6. To remove, soak the patches with a wet washcloth or by splashing your face with plenty of warm water. Gently slide your fingers underneath the patches to remove. Alternatively, you can remove them during your morning shower or even sweat them off during your workout!

Be Consistent. Love Your Results.

Like a new exercise routine, the best results come with time. While you may notice results after just one use, lasting results come with consistent wear. We recommend wearing Frownies Facial Patches for 30 nights in a row as you begin your Frownies journey. Of course, individual results will vary, so you may need to wear the facial patches for longer than 30 nights to start retraining your facial muscle movement.

Great product!

I've always wanted an alternative to botox, because I'd never do botox and I'm so thankful I found this! It's very affordable, super simple & really great results. 👍

Mary Walker
It actually works

I’m 34 years old, and I think this is the first review I’ve ever left for a beauty product. That said, I’m leaving this review because they work. I’m a sceptic, so I wasn’t expecting any results. After less than a month, my 11 lines are erased. It’s absolutely insane. I was trying to avoid getting Botox for the first time, and it looks like I found my solution. Absolutely magical. I didn’t take a before (because I wasn’t expecting results) which is unfortunate, but you can see my pronounced 11 lines in the second photo. Highly recommend. I’ll be using forever.

Hi Mary, thank you for the review and photos! We’re so excited you’re experiencing such great results from Frownies. With time and consistency, your results will become longer lasting, too. If you ever have questions about the process, message us on or email We’d love to chat! Cheers, Frownies Customer Care

Robin H
Totally works

I saw ads so many times and finally tired the forehead patches. I didn’t realize it was just paper, but I’m amazed at the difference it makes. My forehead is really smooth.
The smell weird for sure, but I got used to it pretty quickly so it’s not that big of a deal.

Hi Robin, thank you for your review! We’re so happy to hear you gave Frownies a chance, despite your initial suspicions, and that you’re enjoying your results! While the materials may be simple, this is actually what sets Frownies apart from other options on the market. The paper and adhesive allow the patches to dry stiff and create a cast for the muscles so they can relax and smooth out the skin. The minimal materials also provide a product that is all natural and great for any skin type by avoiding ingredients that often cause allergies or sensitivities (including synthetic fragrances, which is why you’re noticing the natural smell of the paper and adhesive! It goes away once it dries.) If you have any questions about maintaining your results, feel free to message us on or email All our best, Frownies Customer Care
