A new skin patch, dubbed the “skin redness patch”, has been created by the University of Queensland and is one of a number of new skin patches created by dermatologists in the past few years.
The new patch, which was created by Australian researchers at the Queensland University of Technology, is made from a specially designed protein that has been added to the skin’s surface to mimic the skin red-ness of red blood cells.
“The protein is a way of making the skin cells in the skin feel more red, as if the skin has been affected by a red blood cell problem,” Professor John Brown said.
“It has been shown to be very effective, and is an example of how researchers are starting to look at how they can use proteins to deliver therapeutics.”
This particular skin patch is the first to use the protein in this way.
“Professor Brown said it was also one of the first skin patches to be made with a polymer, which he said would provide a stronger, more durable, and more permanent adhesive than a traditional adhesive.”
Because of its molecular structure, the protein is very flexible and flexible proteins have been shown in the lab to work very well in the human body, which is a very attractive thing for skin care products,” he said.
The researchers said it had been shown that the polymer-based patch was more effective at protecting the skin against the redness-causing proteins, and could potentially be used in other clinical applications.”
A lot of skin care applications use a polymer patch because the adhesive it provides is more flexible than the ones made with traditional adhesive materials, but these new patches are a lot better than that,” Professor Brown said, adding that the research had been funded by the Australian Research Council and Australian Research Centre for Dermatology and Skin Diseases.
Professor Brown also said the patch could be used for other cosmetic applications, such as for cosmetic purposes.”
There are lots of cosmetic uses for skin patches that are made with different polymers, and we are working with pharmaceutical companies to try to make them available to the general public,” he explained.”
One of the interesting applications is to use these patches to make patches for people who are suffering from redness, as well as treating redness caused by certain viruses.
