Millions of people peer into the mirror every morning and wonder if anything can be done about the lines under their eyes. They’re caused by a lack of hyaluronic acid, which keeps the skin moisturized.

Hyalo Deep Patches are a cosmetic product designed to make those worrisome wrinkles less conspicuous. Each patch is made up of about 750 microscopic needles, which deliver hyaluronic acid directly under the surface of the skin.

Hearing the word ‘needle,’ you’d be forgiven for thinking that wearing Hyalo Deep Patches is a painful experience. But the tiny needles are too small to be seen with the naked eye and since they only penetrate 0.2 mm under the surface of the skin, you’re unlikely to feel any pain.

When it comes to treating damaged skin, the ability to penetrate the surface of the skin is very important. Hyaluronic acid permeates through the skin easily and the patches’ ‘microneedle technology’ maximizes its penetrative power.

Within 10 to 15 minutes of application, the tip of each needle begins to melt and over the next five hours the hyaluronic acid slowly permeates into the skin. Apply the eye patches once a week before you go to sleep and when you wake up in the morning, the skin under your eyes will be visibly firmer.

Hyaluronic acid is one of the chief components of the skin’s connective tissue, forming a gelatinous matrix between the skin cells. The Hyalo Deep Patch is made up of hyaluronic acid, which has excellent water retention ability, hydrolyzed collagen, placenta extract, and other ingredients found in quality skincare products, such as EGF and FGF.

Hyalo Deep Patches passed independent tests carried out according to the Japanese Cosmetic Science Society's ‘guidelines for the evaluation of anti-wrinkle products’ with flying colours. Hyalo Deep Patches are made by beauty product manufacturer Kitano Tatsujin, which promises that everything the company produces is “surprisingly good.”

Sales of Hyalo Deep Patches would suggest that the public believes the hype about the wonders of ‘microneedle technology.’ Kitano Tatsujin claims to sell a sheet of the patches every four seconds and to date has sold over two million sheets of them.

Hyalo Deep Patches are available from pharmacists and drug stores. One pack lasts a month and is priced 4,422 yen (excluding tax).
