Being in the beauty industry, I have had the honor of meeting thousands of clients who have put their trust in my artistry, and allowed me to enhance their beauty with my makeup brush. I have also been fortunate enough to become a confidant to my clients, as they allow me to share in their insecurities; it has been a thrill to teach them how to conceal those little scars, moles, or skin discolorations that can rob them of their confidence.
Unfortunately, there are some scars that can take over a persons face, body, and eventually spirit. Vitilago, Eczema, Burns, Melasma, Lupus, and Rosacea are common skin disorders that can deform the way a person looks at themselves. Past cosmetic treatments have mainly focused on cake concealers, heavy mask-like foundations, and thick powders. These cosmetic treatments not only look unnatural, but they are time consuming, and uncomfortable for the patient. In all honestly, they hardly ever truly cover the scar, and if the area is large, or covering the body, the products can become costly.
I have been hearing for quite some time about a new treatment in Europe called Microskin. Now, this extraordinary treatment is available at the MicroCenter of New York. The results are astonishing, and life altering for those who get to experience this breakthrough treatment, and the profound change in the patients outlooks on themselves and their lives is indescribable.
Here are the details:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
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.
