Rodan+Fields Expression Lines patches (No Botox needed)

September 24, 2014

The newest from Rodan+Fields

A couple months ago, I had the pleasure to geek out meet Drs. Katie Rodan and Kathy Fields of the eponymous Rodan + Fields (the creators of Proactiv amongst other skincare lines, and my lifesavers in college). The duo revealed their latest to us, and their latest by the way is a pretty amazing breakthrough in the anti-aging realm: REDEFINE Acute Care Skincare for Expression Lines…a really long name to describe their patch alternative to Botox and filler injections.

REDEFINE patches


These patches go on like a band-aid and contain the stuff you get at the doctor’s office, like skin-plumping hyaluronic acid and anti-aging peptides but without a needle. You just place the patch on your expression lines — wherever they may be, including smile lines, crow’s feet, marionette lines — and let them sit overnight. The patches target the lines and through their little microscopic ‘liquid cones,’ settle into these areas for smoother skin.

The mini-cones are extremely potent. I’ve been trying them myself to soothe the (albeit very minimal semblance) of smile lines, and I noticed a big difference with just a few pairs. They do feel very weird when you first try them, like tiny, tiny needles which I didn’t expect. But those completely “melt” into the skin by the morning. Their studies have also showed them that after four-weeks of use (3x a week), there was significant improvement, but what’s more is that they found only MINIMAL return of lines after another 8 weeks after. So the results are supposed to visibly last for a while.

It’ll cost you a pretty penny though — 10 sets (1 pair per set, so that’s 20 individual patches) will run you $220, but considering that it rivals in-office injections that you can use in the privacy of your home and doesn’t involve a needle, it’s comparatively a lot more affordable. Comparatively. I’d say if you are starting to get concerned about expression/fine lines, this could be the first place to try before going for more extreme procedures. It launches next month!

    How big are these? Would be nice to see these patches next to something for size. Would they still work if you cut them to smaller sizes too? These look great! Nice to see something non-invasive being offered to the average consumer.

    They are small, like a little smaller than my index finger. It fits nicely right on smile lines or undereye area. And think it would work best without cutting them up since they’re small as it is and the part that adheres to the skin is around the entire perimeter.
