1. What are micro point patches?
Bye Bye Blemish are acne-preventing patches with a technology of tiny "needles" filled with active ingredients (e.g. salicylic acid and superfoods). These needles create microscopic punctures in the skin (but do not damage the skin and are perfectly safe) and then dissolve. In this way, the ingredients penetrate deeper into the skin and act on the subcutaneous acne, preventing it from breaking out and appearing on the surface of the skin.
2. How often should I use them?
You can use them as many times as needed! :) If after one use you don't get the desired result, you can reapply another patch and do a double treatment.
3. When should I use the Bye Bye Blemish patch?
When you feel a pimple about to appear under the surface of your skin, press the patch on the pimple. The patch will provide acne-fighting ingredients and dissolve them deep below the surface.
4. Do 'microneedles' hurt?
Micro pimples don't hurt, they cause a gentle tingling sensation, a signal that something is happening! :) The sensation is similar to a gentle prick. You can say that you feel a slight prickling when you apply the patch, which means that they are working on your skin!
5. How long should I leave Bye Bye Blemish on?
The microneedles dissolve completely in about 2 hours. Bye Bye Blemish also helps to cover and protect acne from bacteria. We therefore recommend that you leave it on your skin until the pimple has settled, ideally overnight or longer if you don't see any improvement yet. You can also apply 2 patches, one after the other.
6. What is the difference between Bye Bye Blemish and Breakout Hero?
The main difference is when you use them, which depends on the type of pimple. Bye Bye Blemish is suitable for deep, subcutaneous pimples that are below the surface of the skin and are not yet "mature", while Breakout Hero is suitable for inflamed pimples that are already on the surface of the skin - they look like white pimples filled with pus, just before you can squeeze them. Patches also differ in their composition or active ingredients. Breakout Hero contains a hydrocolloid that sucks all the sebum off the pimple, while Bye Bye Blemish contains tiny needles that contain active ingredients.
7. Can I use Bye Bye Blemish with other products?
You can use the patches in your routine, the important thing is to apply it on dry and clean skin. Combining with other products with active ingredients is not recommended.
8. Is Bye Bye Blemish suitable for sensitive skin?
Yes, Bye Bye Blemish is also suitable for sensitive skin.
9. Which types of pimples does Bye Bye Blemish work best on?
Bye Bye Blemish works best on subcutaneous acne in its early stages. These are recognisable as red and/or painful to the touch, but are still below the surface of the skin and are not 'mature'.
10. Can I use two or more patches on one pimple?
We do not recommend that you apply two patches at the same time, but you can apply another patch immediately after removing the first patch. :)
