Scientifically, certain drugs have been discovered that have the ability to penetrate the human skin through its capillary networks and equally remain effective at absorbed low doses. Basically these kind of drugs can be transdermally (through the skin) applied instead of being orally taken or injected. Patches are today a more preferred mode of medicine delivery mostly because they have controlled-release capability unlike oral intakes and injections.

Traditional medication applications deliver a high concentration of doses into the blood stream which soon wears off and drops to a very low level and thus requiring a re-intake of the medication to maintain its effectiveness in the body. On the other hand, the controlled-release capability of patches enable the delivery of medication into the blood stream at a constant and safe level.

Thus, the recent popularity and effectiveness of weight loss patches have gradually developed over the last few years owing to rapid advancements in the development of "transdermal technology" and its high success rate in other medical applications. Consequently, patches have been around for decades and have been successfully used in various medical application such as the nicotine transdermal patches(given to people trying to quit smoking), motion sickness treatment, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and in diabetic patches.

However while there is a lot of promise about the effectiveness of weight loss patches, many so-called patches have failed to live up to expectation while others are simply just scams cashing in on its rising popularity and acclaimed effectiveness. Then again, most users are of the opinion that once applied, this supposed "miracle" patch will automatically help them get rid of their excess body weight while they virtually do nothing on their part.

The individual effectiveness of a weight loss patch essentially depends on what ingredients were used and method of preparation. Nonetheless, there are diet patches that are very effective.
