Using Body Makeup to Cover Scars
Scars can be very difficult to cover up, due to their color. But Microskin, a liquid, customizable makeup, does the trick. We are able to perfectly match your skintone and make you your very own shade of Microskin. A trained technician scans your healthy skintone and gets a precise pigment match. Once that is done, we blend your Microskin. It is able to cover up body scars easily because it is a precise match of your skintone layered on top of scars. To apply Microskin to your scars, you have two options, which we will decide what is best for you at the consultation. There is the stippling option, in which you apply the scar makeup using a stippling sponge. The stippling method is ideal for smaller body scars. Then there is the airbrushing option, in which you apply Microskin using an airbrush machine. This is great for larger scars because it takes less time.
When applied, Microskin looks so natural, like a second skin. It flawlessly camouflages scars using body makeup. You can move with it on, even bathe with it. Microskin is waterproof and sweatproof, so you can shower, swim or exercise with it on. It is also resistant to coming off on clothes or fabric, making Microskin the best body makeup for scars. Microskin can last up to a week on drier skin, and this proves how long-lasting Microskin truly is.
