Created in 1889, these adhesive patches have become a viral sensation as an alternative to Botox treatments. Unlike many wrinkle patches, Frownies are designed to smooth wrinkles and fine lines by acting as a cast, relaxing the muscles and preventing expressions that cause wrinkling as you sleep. Before applying, spray the patches with water to activate the adhesive. Then, once the patches are tacky, place them along your forehead to create the cast. In the morning, you’ll wake up with smooth, soft skin.

Frownies rating: 4/5 stars

A Frownies reviewer says: “I’ll admit I was skeptical- as I have used Botox for some time and was looking for an alternative. The forehead patches have really helped reduce the tension and lines in my forehead that were coming back between Botox treatments. So much so, that I’m considering not using Botox anymore!”

Made with 100 percent medical-grade silicone, these reusable patches are soft and comfortable on the skin, making them the perfect overnight treatment to smooth fine lines. Unlike single-use patches, the silicone adhesive creases an occlusive layer over the skin that firms the skin and prevents it from creasing. This also helps to increase blood flow and promote collagen production to soften lines over time.

Wrinkle Schminkles rating: 4.4/5 stars

A Wrinkle Schminkles reviewer says: “I’ve been using these every other night or so for about a week. There’s a very noticeable difference first thing in the morning Throughout the day my lines gradually come back, but I think at the end of the day they are still softer than before I started using these patches.”

Are forehead wrinkle patches actually effective?

“The effectiveness of forehead wrinkle patches can vary depending on the individual and the specific product used. Some people may see noticeable results in terms of reduced wrinkle appearance and improved skin texture, while others may not experience significant changes if they are really deep,” says Carrillo.

Could forehead patches be an effective long term solution to wrinkles with continued use?

elle linebreak

With any skin care step, consistency is key. “Wrinkle patches can provide temporary results, but they may not offer a long-term solution to wrinkles on their own. Consistent use of wrinkle patches along with a proper skincare regimen that includes facial exercise, moisturizer, sunscreen, and other anti-aging products may help maintain smoother, more youthful-looking skin over time,” Carrillo adds.
