The Skin Camouflage Service can be used to cover a wide number of conditions, including:
However, we are not able to work on broken, infectious or inflamed skin. Additionally, our Skin Camouflage products are not able to fill indentations or level-out a raised area; they simply cover the area of skin with a colour that matches the surrounding area.
All our volunteer Practitioners receive a comprehensive training course, which is accredited by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) and includes observation sessions, a residential 3 day practical course and mentored clinics. They are provided with a full range of camouflage creams, powders and relevant equipment.
Our practitioners are effective at putting people at ease and have a broad understanding of the differing physical and emotional needs of clients.
The service is provided free of charge and we welcome donations. Camouflage creams and powders are available on prescription and last between six months and three years, depending on the product, the area to be camouflaged and the frequency of use. If you currently pay for prescriptions then you will have to pay a prescription charge for the creams and powders.

Please note that the clinics generally run one morning a month and demand can be high.
Skin Camouflage might be a perfect solution for you now. But for some people, and some conditions, it will not be the answer, or only a temporary one.
Changing Faces has extensive experience in supporting adults and children who have concerns about their appearance. We can offer you advice on handling different social situations, as well as helping you develop your self-esteem and gain in self-confidence.
