Dermaclara Review: Does Silicone Reduce Wrinkles?

Dermaclara Review: Does Silicone Reduce Wrinkles?

Read our Editorial Guidelines to learn more about what makes our site the premier resource for online health information.

Dermaclara is an anti-aging brand that sells silicone patches. These patches are applied to various parts of the skin, and the company claims their product line "boosts skin elasticity and hydration."

But are silicone patches clinically shown to have anti-aging effects, or are these just marketing claims? Do the patches contain any questionable additive ingredients? How do real users rate and describe the effects of Dermaclara? And which retailer sells this brand for the best price?

In this article we'll answer all of these questions and more, as we analyze clinical studies on topical silicone to give our take on whether or not this technology is likely to have an anti-aging effect.

We'll analyze the ingredients in Dermaclara, feature unsponsored customer reviews, and provide a cost comparison to show which retailer sells this brand for the best price.

Does Silicone Reduce Wrinkles?

There have been clinical studies testing the effects of topical silicone on wrinkles and skin health.

A clinical trial published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology examined whether topical silicone patches could reduce wrinkles.

The study authors found that silicone patches resulted in a temporary (up to 60 minute) reduction in wrinkles, but no long-term effect was noted.

Silicone is also clinically shown to reduce wrinkles when implanted in the skin (during a cosmetic procedure), as we documented in our review of another silicone patch brand called Wrinkles Schminkles.

Silicone patches were shown to be effective against scarring in a 2015 medical review, which suggests that this product could be effective in consumers with stretch marks (which is a type of scar).

Overall, we can't find any clinical studies published in peer-reviewed journals suggesting that topical silicone patches reduce wrinkles or improve skin quality long-term in individuals without scarring.

Real People Try Dermaclara

A TikTok creator named "bayleecab" claims Dermaclara's patches were effective against stretch marks during pregnancy:

@bayleecab ✨NOT SPONSORED✨ this is my honest review of @Dermaclara silicone patches and let me just tell you. the results speak for themselves🤷‍♀️ #dermaclara #dermaclarapatches ♬ original sound - baylee cabrera

A TikTok creator named Kaily claims that the patches were relatively ineffective when used on the face:

@kailymayhugh Here👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼 Here is my honest review of the derma Clara silicone patches. I feel like they have been really hyped up by influencers. I do notice that right after I take the patches off, I have results but throughout the day they start to come back. If anybody has any tips or tricks or ideas of how to make these work better, please comment or DM me. @@Dermaclara##honestreview##wrinkles##sahm##momtoktakeover ♬ original sound - Kaily | SAHM of Two 🩵🩷

Dermaclara vs. Frownies

Frownies is another anti-aging face patch brand, so consumers are often curious about whether it's more or less effective than Dermaclara.

As we documented in our Frownies reviews article, Frownies uses adhesive material rather than silicone, and we haven't come across any clinical evidence that adhesive material has any long-term positive effects on skin.

Frownies also contained an ingredient in the past called methyl salicylate which is clinically shown to be toxic.

Since the publication of our review, Frownies removed the mention of methyl salicylate from their ingredient list, but it's unclear whether or not it's still included in their materials.

Overall, we consider Dermaclara to be a vastly superior option to Frownies, because it has no questionable additive ingredients (the only ingredient in Dermaclara is medical-grade silicone), and its material is clinically shown to be effective against scars.

Will Dermaclara Cause Side Effects?

Dermaclara doesn't appear to have been studied in any clinical trials published in peer-reviewed journals, which makes it more challenging to assess the risk of side effects.

However, we can make an educated guess based on its material.

We have not come across any clinical evidence that medical-grade silicone is harmful when applied topically, and this material has a range of other dermatological uses (as documented in this 2023 medical review).

Overall, we do not consider Dermaclara likely to cause side effects in healthy individuals.

The brand's FAQ page states that individuals allergic to silicone or sensitive to adhesives should avoid use of the product.

Real Customers Review Dermaclara

Amazon is a better resource for unbiased customer reviews than a brand's website in our opinion.

Dermaclara's Face Patches are the brand's most-reviewed product on Amazon at the time of publishing this article, with over 240 reviews and a 3.9 out of 5 rating.

A top positive review from a verified purchaser is written by a user named "frayda" who gave the product a 5/5 star rating, and claims both the product experience and aesthetic effects are impressive:

"They adhere seamlessly to the skin, delivering noticeable results in just a few uses. My fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, and my complexion appears smoother and more radiant."

A top negative review from a verified purchaser comes from a user named "Angie" who gave the product a 1/5 star rating, and claims it failed to deliver lasting effects:

"I used this product religiously for 30 days, following the instructions completely. My fine lines reduced momentarily after removing, but these will not give lasting effects. Don’t waste your money!"

Dermaclara currently has an average review rating of 3.3 out of 5 stars on Facebook.

Dermaclara Eyes and Mouth Patches currently has an average review rating of 3.7 out of 5 stars on Google.

Dermaclara has failed to respond to any of the customer complaints on the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website at the time of publishing this article.

Dermaclara Pros and Cons

Here are the pros and cons of Dermaclara in our opinion:

Pros:

  • Should be effective for stretch marks
  • Should be effective for other types of scarring
  • Unlikely to cause side effects
  • Reusable
  • Topical silicone is clinically tested

Cons:

  • We can't find clinical backing for benefits in individuals without scarring
  • Mediocre online customer reviews

Conclusion

Dermaclara may be a great option for consumers with stretch marks, because topical silicone is clinically shown to be effective against scarring, and this brand uses 100% medical-grade silicone.

We can't find any convincing clinical evidence that topical silicone is effective against wrinkles unrelated to scarring, so we think consumers looking for an anti-aging effect on the face may be disappointed.

The anecdotal evidence we came across while researching this article supported these findings (the user who had stretch marks had a positive experience and the user without did not).

We consider Dermaclara to be a greatly superior alternative to Frownies, because of the material used. Frownies has an active ingredient that we can't find any clinical backing for, and also previously contained an ingredient that may be harmful.

We do not consider Dermaclara likely to cause side effects.

At the time of publishing this article, Amazon has better prices than the brand's website on cheaper products.
