AcneFree 1 Hour Acne Free Pimple Patch Review University Medical- Does it work?

Updated on November 17, 2012

How does the AcneFree patch work?

The AcneFree 1 Hour Acne Patch by University Medical uses a disposable patch with a flat, thin battery cell to treat redness and pimple size. The package comes with 4 patches for 4 treatments and an activator cream. Apply the cream to the patch's battery bull's eye and place over pimple for one hour treatment. The patch has adhesive to stick to the skin and after one hour you will have a reduced pimple and it will clear up the next day. Redness or scarring may take time to heal as usual from large pimples.

Does the AcneFree Patch Work?

Acnefree products have a reputation to be effective and priced affordable. You can purchase the patch at Walgreens and other retailers and online for about $14.99. I used this product a couple of times and it does work to treat an active pimple. It is not used for prevention of pimples. It is good for an emergency like if you have an event the next day and want to treat a pimple as fast as possible. I would recommend it for these instances.

      I have one on right now...when they stick for the full hour (which rarely happens due to weak adhesive and odd size) they do work.

      Very weak adhesive. Peels off face within minutes...only works if you feel like holding down the patch for an hour. It's so large that it makes every pimple hard to treat...awkward size.

      patch does not even stick to face with little cream applied. Very dissatisfied with claim of treatment to promote acne healing.

      This patch really works! I saw improvement after removing the patch on a consistent basis for about 2 hours, resulting in a dramatically reduced redness and size of pimple. This patch works in much the same way as the Zeno, but combines heat technology with benzoil peroxide therapy. Highly recommended!

      This product really worked for me. I had a PAINFUL cystic pimple beside my eyebrow so I just put a pimple patch. In one hour, the size went down a little and 90% of the pain was gone. It was not a miracle treatment to get rid of it, but the pimple did not hurt at all unless I applied a lot of pressure to it. I will definitely be using this again :)
