BIOBLISS Anti-Wrinkle Treatment Patch



"Women Forgo the Galvanic Micro-Current Treatment
Anti-Wrinkle Treatment Patch from BIOBLISS Offers Women the Newest Innovation in Anti-Aging"



"For years women have been going to medi-spas to receive galvanic micro-current treatments from estheticians to enable cosmetic ingredients to penetrate the skin. As this trend started to pick up, the creation of portable, hand-held tools containing these charged ions hit the market so women could perform this anti-aging treatment at home. The first generation of these beauty tools were known to be oversized and far from ergonomically sound.

BIOBLISS recognized this gap in the market and from years of work in field of transdermal drug delivery, knew that a simple patch could deeply infuse skin with active ingredients. After years of research and prototypes, BIOBLISS launches the first-ever Anti-Wrinkle Treatment Patch with an innovative proprietary delivery system containing the ion technology found in a galvanic micro-current treatment to deeply distribute dermatologist-approved anti-wrinkle ingredients. Results can be seen in as little as thirty minutes.

These lightweight, ultra-thin, comfortable patches are loaded with dermatologist recommended anti-wrinkle ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, powerful peptides, essential vitamins and advanced antioxidants. Ion activation of this patch gently drives these ingredients from the patch to the skin and is clinically proven as a safe and effective solution to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Available in two shapes to treat wrinkles on the forehead and eye areas."

We tested the product and have to say we were surprised with the results.

blemish control"This super-potent drying treatment rapidly improves breakouts. The tinted color allows you to layer with your daily makeup routine. This treatment contains zinc oxide, sulfur, camphor and salicylic acid for a powerful release." $29

Available at leading spas nationwide and online via www.emerginC.com


A few years ago, I purchased a product like this in Asia and stocked up because I hadn't found one in North America. It is a miracle worker for those blemishes you want gone. 
You can apply it under your make up to work during the day, or leave it on at night and your problem spot will be so much better in the morning. 
This product is for problem areas, for breakouts, and this product was created to dry them out. I recommend only using this product sparingly, as overuse will leave your skin dry. This is a genius product! Highly recommend!
