Will Claene Acne Patch really work?
Will the acne patch really work?
Acne is called a symbol of youth, but it is an uninvited visitor who suddenly visits even as an adult. While teenage acne is mainly caused by vigorous hormone secretion, adult acne is caused by a variety of factors. Not only the sebum secreted from the sebaceous glands, but also environmental factors such as irregular life patterns and eating habits cannot be ignored.
Before vs. after acne extrusion?
They may all look the same type, but there are two main uses for acne patches on the market. One is for applying pimples before squeezing and the other after squeezing. The difference between the two can be seen by looking closely at the ingredient table. The patch applied before extrusion contains salicylic acid or tea tree oil, which has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties against acne bacteria. Of these, salicylic acid has the effect of removing the stratum corneum, and if a patch containing this ingredient is applied for a long time, it may cause more damage to the wound later, so be careful.
On the other hand, the patch applied after extrusion contains a hydrocolloid component, which absorbs toxins spread under the skin and protects the wound from ultraviolet rays and bacteria. This creates a moist environment and helps the skin grow quickly, so it is used not only to treat acne, but also to treat various skin scars. However, if the patch is applied while the skin is still inflamed due to poor extrusion, acne may recur, so be careful.

What are the precautions when applying the acne patch?
Usually, the acne patch is applied after squeezing the pimple by hand. In this case, bacterial infection can easily occur, and the wound is covered with an acne patch. However, this act is like pouring oil into the fire. This is because bacterial infection can be actively progressed in a closed and humid environment. After washing your face, you should apply the patch without applying skin or toner, and the important preparation at this time is clean hands. If possible, it's a good idea to pick up the patch with clean, sterile tweezers or forceps.
Just like when choosing a cosmetic product, when purchasing an acne patch, you should carefully weigh the ingredients it contains. If your skin type and ingredients don't match, the side effects can get worse, so be careful. Nowadays, it is easy to get acne due to the addition of fine dust in dry weather. Rather than recklessly extruding at home, you'll have to find an alternative. Acne patches can be helpful when acne symptoms are mild, but if the degree of acne is severe, it is difficult to expect a great effect. If the wound becomes redder or worse after using the patch, it is recommended to remove the patch immediately and see a dermatologist. The treatment varies depending on the skin type and acne type, so after consulting a specialist, find a treatment that suits you and solve your skin problems.
