Hydrocolloid was originally intended for use in medical dressings to help protect and heal wounds. However, it’s also been found that hydrocolloid is wonderful at extracting bacteria from whiteheads and then helping these open wounds heal. Inflammation reduces overnight with the application of hydrocolloid patches or dressings.
Benefits: Healing, a decrease in pimple inflammation, and the pulling of bacteria out of whiteheads. It also prevents scarring by providing a physical barrier so you can’t pick and bacteria can’t find its way back in!
Skin Types: Acne prone skin and skin that’s susceptible to scarring will love hydrocolloid!
