It varies with different skin types (oily/dry) and on different parts of the body. Microskin™ can last 1 – 2 days on the face, as the natural oils will breakdown the Microskin™ more quickly than other areas. On other parts of the body, you can get up to several days with an application. You might only need a slight touch-up to achieve a longer lasting result.
When applied to the hands, the application will also break down more quickly due to the frequent contact and washing and drying of hands. Burnpatients are able to get more wear out of their Microskin™ application as they don’t have the sweat or oil glands to break it down. On active or outdoor people, Microskin™ may break down faster due to climatic conditions.
