Our specialist Skin Camouflage Service supports people in England and Scotland with a scar, mark or non-infectious skin condition who are seeking help to minimise the appearance of their visible difference.
Delivered by trained practitioners, our free appointments enable your patients to try skin camouflage, which can be an effective tool to manage their visible difference.
