Hydrocolloid is a medical grade adhesive used in chronic wound care for over 40 years. Amparo hydrocolloid acne patches form an occlusive barrier that acts like an artificial scab, triggering skin to go into a healing mode. Acne patches manufactured by Amparo absorb high amounts of oils, puss, and other exudate to aid in the healing process.
Amparo custom hydrocolloid acne patches help the skin absorb acne-fighting active ingredients
helping the papule or pustule flatten out and resolve in shorter time, as well as potentially lessening post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), the darkened skin cells that form during scabbing and the final healing stage.
