One thing to note, however, is that while Niacinamide can be used by all skin types, you may have to be careful with higher concentrations of Niacinamide in products to avoid irritation or redness. Generally, it's recommended to stick to products with a 2 to 5 percent concentration of Niacinamide to avoid irritating the skin.

Niacinamide’s multiple benefits made it a no-brainer to feature as the star ingredient in our Dark Spot Brightening Patch.

Typical brightening ingredients, like some AHAs, may not be the best fit for all skin types especially if your skin can’t tolerate acids very well. As a well tolerated ingredient Niacinamide best suits all skin types and you don’t have to worry about drying side effects.

Our Dark Spot Brightening Patch is made with 2% Niacinamide that penetrates the skin through the painless self-dissolving microneedles. The microneedles help carry the ingredients including Niacinamide, Green Tea, and Hyaluronic Acid deep in the skin to help fade the dark spot from the source.

You can use the patch on dark spots, post-blemish marks, and sunspots to help improve the look of discoloration.


Our tips to use the Dark Spot Brightening Patch:


  1. Cleanse and dry the spot before applying the patch.

  2. Apply the patch and press down on the middle for 5 to 10 seconds.

  3. Leave on for 6 to 10 hours, or overnight.


And lastly, we recommend using one patch about every other day and using the patches for at least two weeks to see the best results.
