In my opinion, the most innovative skincare launch of last year was the Radara patches as I believe they represent a turning point in the future of skincare application. Now, the new 111 Skin Meso Infusion Micro Masks have taken things a stage further.
Like the Radara patches, the 111 Skin Meso Infusion Micro Masks address a big skincare issue – getting ingredients to penetrate the layers of the skin. To do this the 111 Skin Meso Infusion Micro Masks are the first to use a new technology that creates microstructures out of pure active ingredients.
There are 15o microstructures that cover the surface of the patches (or masks) and these are self dissolving. Basically, the microstructures make microscopic tunnels in the skin which the active ingredients are absorbed into.
The active ingredients in the microstructures are composed of 95.5% Hyaluronic Acid and 4.5% Vitamin C. The HA improves moisture levels and plumps out lines and the Vit C evens tone, boosts collagen production, and protects against environmental damage.
The patches come in pairs and can be used anywhere on the face such as under the eye, the crows feet, forehead and upper lip. I’ve tested out several areas and prefer to put them on places with underlying bone such as on my crow’s feet and forehead. The reason for this is that I can feel the microstructures lightly penetrating the skin and I like this. It’s not painful at all but you can feel it. On the fleshier parts of the face, the microstructures still penetrate but you don’t feel it at all.
It’s recommended that you keep the patches on for 40+minutes but I’ve been told to keep them on for at least 2 hours or even over night to get maximum benefits. The treated areas look instantly smoother after one use and results build over time.
The only negative with 111 Skin Meso Infusion Micro Masks is the price – a box contains 4 pairs of patches and is £100. Unfortunately, the latest technology doesn’t come cheap! If money was no object I’d be using these patches the whole time. As it is, I think it’s still possible to get a good boost to skin from using them occasionally.
The 111 Skin Meso Infusion Micro Masks from clinics are available from Space NK online and in store.
