Salonpas® Pain Relief Patch features a Transdermal Drug Delivery System (TDDS), whereby the pain relief medicine is spread across an ultra-thin and highly stretchable piece of cloth with a soft adhesive, that when applied directly to the skin enables medicine to be delivered directly to the site of pain.
The thinness and flexibility of Salonpas® Pain Relief Patch makes them extremely discreet and allows them to be applied to the most common sites of muscular pain.
Salonpas® Pain Relief Patch provides an alternative for pain sufferers, including those who prefer to avoid the use of tablets or capsules available as over the counter pain relief medications. Unlike tablets and capsules, the active ingredients in Salonpas® Pain Relief Patch are absorbed through the skin directly at the site of pain.
Pain relief generally occurs within one hour of application, but in some individuals pain relief may be shorter or longer.
If pain recurs 8-12 hours after applying the first patch a second patch can be applied. Only use one patch at a time.
Apply only 1 patch at a time.
