New Patch May Cure Acne

An Acne-Curing Patch May Be on the Way

If you're an acne sufferer who's not afraid of a little electricity and you'll be in Israel sometime in the next few months, you might consider signing up for the Active Oplon Acne Patch trial.

The patch, which is designed to spot-treat acne, is supposed to work by creating an electrical field that kills bacteria on skin, then clearing away dead skin cells and bacteria with a combination of azelaic and salicylic acids. Initial results suggest that the patch helps cure acne eruptions within three days and helps keep areas around it clear as well — although just how much the electrical component aids things isn't clear. If this clears trials and becomes available in the US sometime in the next couple of years, would you consider giving it a try?
