Scar Management & Physiotherapy/Scar Camouflage

Camouflage techniques and products to effectively mask skin discolouration and scarring by using highly pigmented creams that mimic normal skin colours

The scar camouflage treatment uses highly pigmented products, that when applied correctly, are waterproof to mask the appearance of scarring. Camouflage is a great option for scars that are presenting with redness or pigmentation and whilst this is not a permanent option it is still highly effective during everyday life or as an interim solution whilst undergoing scar treatments. 

Scar camouflage is not a permanent option, whilst these creams are durable they will need to be applied daily.

When applied correctly there are a number of brands we use that are water resistant.  

Yes, as long as you are not applying the scar camouflage over open wounds (eg: directly after scar revision etc) or freshly lasered skin you can use camouflage in between appointments to mask the scarring.

No, skin camouflage techniques may help patients with various conditions; from injury scarring, to vitiligo, rosacea, melasma scarring and many more.

"Rae has been extremely professional and helpful, making me feel comfortable and trust in her knowledge and skill. Small scars may seem trivial to some but they can really affect your confidence; Rae has helped put my mind at ease about my appearance. Thanks!"

"A session with Phil was a fantastic experience. Most importantly for me, he was entirely non-judgmental and approachable. He listened to what my priorities were and was genuine about the results we would expect. It was a really fun, enjoyable afternoon and I’ve gained confidence thanks to the look he created (a look I can now recreate too). The email he sent afterwards with comprehensive product advice and skin camouflage and make-up instructions was invaluable!"
