About our Skin Camouflage Service

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.

For further information about our Skin Camouflage Service, including where it is available and how it is funded, visit our dedicated page for health and social care professionals.

I really appreciate the kindness and warmth of care that I received here. I didn’t feel at all rushed and left feeling happy with the results and like all my questions had been answered. Thank you!
