BEFORE & AFTER

 

What is skin camouflage?
Skin camouflage is used to restore appearance to normality with simple but effective techniques. The products are specially formulated creams and powders which have the necessary covering power, yet require only a thin application to mimic the surrounding and normal skin colour. When correctly applied the camouflage should not be apparent; the application process itself can be easily managed within your daily routines. It does not interfere with any medical treatment in progress on the effected area, so can even be used for post-operative scarring, cosmetic surgery, and bruising.

Most of the products used, are also water resistant meaning you could continue with sporting activities such as swimming whilst wearing the camouflage. Skin camouflage is designed to blend in with your skin colour, however the texture of your skin will remain unchanged. Skin camouflage is applied in two stages – the first is a fine layer of skin match camouflage cream, the second is to set the cream using a suitable loose powder. Occasionally it is necessary to apply a complementary coloured camouflage cream before the skin match – this is especially so when camouflaging a tattoo. The successful key to skin camouflage is to create an acceptable skin match whilst at the same time concealing your dermatosis, scar tissue or tattoo.

Why do I need skin camouflage?
The reasons for needing skin camouflage are individual and various; those seeking help include men, women and children. Some, with congenital disorders may be born with the condition apparent, whilst with others the dermatosis will present at a later stage – and that is usually when it is least welcomed, particularly during puberty. Scarring can be the result of surgical procedures, accident, acts of violence and self-injury. Unwanted tattoos and excessive facial “flushing and blushing” are other reasons for requesting skin camouflage. The psychological benefit achieved by using skin camouflage cannot be over-emphasised. It is an accepted fact that mind and body interact upon each other, when we feel good about ourselves, our attitude is positive – we enjoy social activities, we form relationships and are considered to be part of our community.
