WHAT IS HYDRCOLLOID?
Hydrocolloid was originally designed for use as a medical bandage or dressing for wounds. It has a gel layer that’s formulated with pectin that absorbs fluids (such as pus). As the hydrocolloid absorbs fluids or pus, the patch changes from transparent to opaque white, which is all the gunk that was absorbed from the pimple.
HOW DO I USE MIGHTY PATCH?
Mighty Patch is a gentle (yet effective) pimple patch. To be exact, it’s a transparent hydrocolloid sticker that absorbs pus and helps protect the skin from picking and popping.
First, thoroughly clean and dry the blemish and surrounding area. Apply a Mighty Patch directly on top of the whitehead and leave it on for 6-8 hours. Watch it work and peel off when the patch turns white. Mighty Patch is safe when used as directed overnight or during the day.
WHAT KIND OF PIMPLE IS MIGHTY PATCH DESIGNED FOR?
Since hydrocolloid absorbs water and fluid, Mighty Patch works best on pimples that have come to a head (in other words, you can see white fluid or pus trapped in the pimple).
If you have cystic acne, we recommend you see a doctor or dermatologist for professional treatment.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MIGHTY PATCH ORIGINAL, INVISIBLE+ AND SURFACE?
Mighty Patch Original is the Hero Cosmetics OG. It’s our nighttime patch and comes in one size. Mighty Patch Invisible+ is ultra thin and has tapered edges that seamlessly blend into your skin, making it perfect for daytime use. Mighty Patch Surface is best for cluster (large area) breakouts (e.g., along the jawline, cheeks and forehead).
IS THE MIGHTY PATCH SAFE TO USE ALONGSIDE ACNE PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION?
We recommend you consult your doctor before using Mighty Patch alongside any prescription drugs.
WHAT'S THE MAXIMUM LENGTH OF TIME I SHOULD WEAR A PATCH?
If you've worn the patch for over 6-8 hours and it hasn't absorbed anything, it can mean a few things:
- The pimple does not have fluid in it so it's not "ripe" yet or not the right type of pimple
- The pimple does have fluid in it but the fluid is deep in the pore.
We advise you wear the patch for 6-8 . If after 6-8 hours, the patch has not absorbed anything, please see above. Let us know if you have other questions!
