EVERYTHING You Want To Know About Zit Stickas

We are so excited to announce the arrival of the Zit Sticka “Killa Kit”!







  • 8X Microdart KILLA Patches: These zit patches are powered by ZitSticka’s signature microdart technology. These tiny microdarts self-dissolve to flood the epicenter of your early-stage zit with pimple-fighting, skin-soothing, targeted ingredients.
  • 8X CLEANA Swabs: CLEANA swabs prime the target-area for the Killa Patch. (If you want to use elsewhere, CLEANA—soaked in exfoliating, de-stressing ingredients—can also be used independently to placate additional superficial zits!)
  • To order, please call us at 215-923-5001 or visit us in-office.


What are KILLA’s ingredients?

The KILLA patch contains just five clean, efficacious, derm-loved ingredients:


  1. Hyaluronic Acid: This moisture-magnet acts as a conduit for the other ingredients to be carried into your zit
  2. Salicylic Acid: Effective exfoliant and dermatologist favorite
  3. Niacinamide (B3): This helps to diminish the red apperance, and soothe your skin
  4. Oligopeptide-76: A fierce but gentle peptide that disrupts your zit’s longevity
  5. Sodium Hydroxide: pH balancer


What exactly are ‘self-dissolving microdarts’?

Microdarts are the heroes of the product. They dissolve within the epicentre of your pimple two-hours after a KILLA is applied, flooding the heart of your zit with hard-working, zit-fighting ingredients.


What makes these any different from their much cheaper counterparts?

ZitSticka’s KILLA patch merges tech and skincare, and is embedded with 24X tiny (pain free!) microdarts containing salicylic acid, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide and oligopeptide-76. This harmonious potion of dermatologist-loved ingredients self-dissolves directly into the heart of a zit, targeting those deeper, underground ones. Traditional patches are perhaps best suited to those zits that are at a head or almost a head.


Do the microdarts hurt?

KILLA’s self-dissolving microdarts don’t hurt—rather, they elicit a tingling sensation that’s kind of satisfying—a signal that something’s about to happen.


How long should I leave a KILLA on for? 

You should leave the KILLA patch on for at least 2-hours, but it is recommended to keep it on until the pimple feels flatter (overnight if possible, or even longer if your zit is particularly obnoxious).


What kind of zits does KILLA work best on?

The KILLA patch works best on the blind, painful, hard-to-reach pimples that pop up out of the blue.


I have a skin condition at the moment. Is KILLA safe for me?

We don’t recommend using KILLA on any kind of open wound; whether that be a popped pimple or a scratch. To avoid infections, KILLA’s microdarts should be applied to clean, dry skin.


Should I carry a KILLA with me in case one of those suckers turns up out of nowhere?

Yes! In fact, we recommend this. Each KILLA is individually packaged, making them the perfect (supremely hygienic) match for your purse/wallet/back pocket.


Can I wear KILLA out in public?

Yes! The patch was designed so you could take care of your zit while living your life —apply a ZS in the AM, go to the gym, yoga, work and deal with your spot while covering it up.


I’ve accidentally applied a KILLA onto the wrong area of my skin. Can I reuse it?

Unfortunately not. Once placed and pressed to the skin, the KILLA’s microdarts will have started to melt away, diluting their original sharpness.


Can I use KILLA with other products, such as ointments or oils?

A ZitSticka should be applied to fresh, clean skin that’s free of makeup.


Do I need to use a CLEANA swab prior to applying a KILLA?

Each KILLA Kit includes individually wrapped active-soaked swabs (CLEANAs), which prime the site to best accept the ZitSticka. That said, if you happen to be on the go and without a CLEANA, a face that’s cleansed and towel-dried is a perfectly ideal compromise.


Is it safe to double patch?

We’re so glad you asked! Yep, it’s 200% safe. Because underground, early-stage acne can run a broad gamut, some zituations—such as the blind, cystic monstrosity that emerges in the same place each month—will benefit handsomely from two consecutive KILLA applications.


How conspicuous is a patch? I like to patch on weekdays during business hours.

The KILLA patch is semi-sheer, and will appear transparent. The ZitSticka will appear very subtle against most skin tones—and help hide the pimple you’re trying to treat.


Does KILLA have an expiration date?

Because ZitSticka products are formulated using real, high quality ingredients and zero preservatives, they do have a shelf life. When stored in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight, KILLA patches will retain their integrity for 3- months when unopened. Once pouch for either cleaning swab or patch is opened, they should both be used immediately.


Can I wear a KILLA in the shower or swimming?

The integrity of the adhesive is best maintained on dry skin. However, if you absolutely must shower, your ZitSticka should go the distance.


I’ve dropped the patch on the floor. Should I cut my losses? 

Uh-oh. As you watch the patch flutter to the floor, pray for a good outcome—this could go one of two ways.

1. The patch falls with the microdarts facing up. Great! You’re good to apply! Hygiene has been retained. All is well here.


2. The patch falls with the microdarts facing down. Please discard and start over.



I have sensitive skin. Will ZitSticka’s ingredients and I get along?

KILLA is built upon a gentle hydrocolloid bandage base. KILLA patches are propelled by the ingredient Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that therefore presents a really low potential for skin reactions. However we do know that skin sensitivity varies person-to-person, so if you’re unsure, you could always patch test on the back of your hand before going in on your beautiful face.


I’m pregnant. Are ZitSticka’s ingredients safe for me?

While KILLA is made from just five simple and safe dermatologically backed ingredients, we recommend checking with your doctor before using KILLA during pregnancy.
