Why Hyaluronic Acid?
With the plethora of microneedle patches comes a long list of brands that supercharge their products with ingredients. The main ingredient that you have to look out for is hyaluronic acid, which can be found in both Dēpology’s Deepcare+ Serum-Infused Micro Dart Patches and Serum-Infused Depuffing & Brightening Micro Dart Patches.
Hyaluronic acid (also known as HA) is the hydrating powerhouse that can hold up to a whopping 1000 times its weight in water. HA binds with water molecules and collagen to trap the acid into our skin, preventing it from evaporating.
Just like collagen, the naturally-occurring HA found within our bodies begins to decrease with age, which leaves us with dryer skin that quickly develops wrinkles and fine lines. When we include HA within skincare products it gives our complexion an instant moisture boost.
Now, simply putting hyaluronic acid on top of the skin is not of any use to us. We need a way for the HA to penetrate the inner layers of the skin; hence why we use them in microneedle face patches. When we use hyaluronic microneedle patches we get plumper, hydrated, and glowing appearance.
Other ingredients to look out for in patches include:
Niacinamide is a high-performance ingredient that works to suppress the transfer of melanin (a substance in your body that produces pigmentation) to the top layer of your skin. This ingredient targets dark spots and leaves you with glowing and brightened skin. Niacinamide can also help minimize pore appearance by keeping the skin moisturized and smooth.

Amino acids have been used in skin care for years to promote collagen process. With an increase in collagen comes improvements in firmness, banishing signs of fine lines and wrinkles. Amino acids work to increase moisture within the skin, leaving behind a plumper appearance.
You can find amino acids in our Deepcare+ Serum-Infused Micro Dart Patches.
Black caviar is an emollient active ingredient that works to increase moisture levels and hydration, as well as plump fine lines and wrinkles. One of Dēpology’s favorite things about black caviar is its ability to smooth the skin by lowering inflammation levels.
You can find black caviar in our Black Caviar Collagen Under Eye Patches.
