Microskin is a simulated second skin which is formulated individually to color correct skin conditions. It is a light liquidized application which is applied on to the epidermis (top layer of skin). Microskin is not a cream, and doesn’t have the makeup appearance like other camouflage products. Once applied, Microskin is durable, flexible, and it won’t rub off on clothing or linen. It’s waterproof and allows your skin to breathe. Microskin is suitable for all genders and skin types.
How long does the product last on your skin?
It varies with different skin types (oily/dry) and with different parts of the body. Microskin can last 1-2 days on the face as the natural oils will break the Microskin down quicker. On other parts of the body you can get up to several days with an application; you may only need a slight touch up to achieve a longer lasting result. When applied to the hands, the application will break down quicker due to frequent contact and hand washing. Burn patients are able to get more wear out of their Microskin as they don’t have the sweat or oil glands to break it down. Active users or outdoor users may see their application break down faster due to climate conditions.
Where do I go to get it?
The Microskin Center is located in New York City. The consultation and training are held in this Center. Your product is then delivered to your home. You can also arrange to pick-up your product at the Center. You are always welcome to stop in and say Hello!
Is it a makeup?
No. Microskin is not a makeup or a cream camouflage.
How is it applied?
There are two techniques of applying Microskin. Stipple is the technique meant for areas that are smaller than the size of the palm of your hand. A specially designed stipple sponge is used. The pore like texture of the sponge allows the Microskin to be applied by a 3D application. It is then slowly built up giving the Microskin a skin-like texture.
Airbrushing is the technique used for larger areas. The airbrush allows the user to achieve a fine, even application which dries quickly. A consultant will determine what procedure best caters for your condition.
Will it work on all skin colors?
Yes. Microskin caters to all skin colors.
Is there any age bracket?
No. Microskin has been successfully applied to all ages.
