If a person has a low body fat ratio, can the patch be dispersed into the body too quickly? I heard that it is absorbed into the body with body fat. Is that a big factor?
How is the patch absorbed into the skin? Does body fat make a difference?

Because we have more fat on certain parts of our bodys this would be the parts of our skin you want to avoid cause its harder for the patch to absorb into the skin. The best place to put it would be on parts of the body that have less body fat. It really doesnt matter wether your small or big it all absorbs the same it would not absorb quicker just cause you have less body fat.
