Our service helps individuals to gain self-confidence and independence

Skin Camouflage Service

Our trained Skin Camouflage Practitioners find the best colour match for each person’s skin tone and then teach them how to self-apply the specialist cover products.

The products are fully waterproof and are available on prescription from your GP. However, Changing Faces cannot guarantee that your GP will give you a prescription.

We run clinics in about 120 locations across the UK, usually for one morning or afternoon a month. Consultations are free of charge.
