    is it bad to apply over fat areas?


    is absorbtion of transdermals affected significantly when applied over fatty areas? I'm applying some 4ad dermal to my quads which aren't fat in the normal sense, but the skin is much thicker due to higher fat beneath the skin as compared to my arms or shoulders.

    is it better to apply it to a different area?

    btw, i'm using 4ad in penetrate.

    Yeah, you might want to apply it to a thinner skinned area to ensure you get the most out of your transdermal. When you apply it to your legs, you might want to apply it to the inner thighs (mind the sack or you might make this face ). Another good place would be on the tops of your feet or behind your knees because the skin is a bit thinner there and there's a better percentage of absorbing because the thickness of the skin is much less. Hope this helps.

    probably want to shave the area before applying the dermal as well.
