Skin Camouflage

Skin Camouflage is available for anyone coping with scarring or a disfiguring skin condition.


The British Association of Skin Camouflage states
"The reasons for needing 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".
It is recommended that anyone wishing to use skin camouflage products seeks medical advice. If you feel you are in need of help from skin camouflage speak to your Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon. Arrangements can be made for you to see a skin camouflage specialist who will be able to select the best colour match for your skin tone and teach you how to apply the creams to improve the affected areas of your skin.  Informtion about skin camouflage products are available on the Web Links page - Products.
