Have you heard about micro needling? It’s the buzziest facial on the anti-aging scene, which customers can shell out upwards of £200 at clinics for.
But a new beauty brand promises to do exactly the same thing for you at home… and for a fraction of the price.
Vice Reversa’s micro needling Plumping Patches (£34.95 for a pack of 8), promise younger skin after just a few uses – without having to move off the sofa.
Also known as dermarolling, micro needling is an on the up non-surgical anti-aging procedure that involves tiny punctures being pierced in the skin with very fine needles to rejuvenate skin, boost collagen and reduce the look of scarring.
Sound painful? Not quite. Vice Reversa claim that you “won’t feel a thing” when wearing their patches, and unlike the in-salon micro needling facial, the pads don’t use a dermaroller, so are great for those who only want to dip a tentative toe in the pond of the beauty craze.
Infused with hyaluronic acid, amino acids and peptides, which penetrate the skin more deeply once the punctures have been made, the pads get to work within two hours – though the brand recommends leaving them on over night for optimum results.
After cleansing, just place the pads in target areas on your face – namely, under the eyes and along smile lines – then sit back and let them do the work for you. Use them twice a week for best results.
And it seems we’re not the only ones desperate to try this buzzy new beauty hack – the pads proved so popular after their launch that they sold out within 24 hours!
Lucky for us, they’re now back in stock – so grab them here before they go! (opens in new tab)
Or if it’s an anti-blemish treatment you’re after, try the brand’s Micro Needling Pimple Patches (opens in new tab) to get rid of a pesky spot, stat.
