Re: Acne

Hello Jamie,

I would certainly try skin camouflage products for acne scarring. The coverage is excellent and ideal for hyperpigmentation and erythema. A skin camouflage practitioner will create a skin match for you and teach you the correct application. This is very important because there are different techniques and tools available so make sure you see someone who is experienced. This is not make up ...and does not require a blanket coverage.

If you get in touch with Changing Faces or with myself at Skin Camouflage Services, I'm sure we can be of help.

Re: Acne

Dear Jamie
It sound like you have had a very difficult time with acne for 10 years and it is affecting your daily life. You mention trying creams and tablets, but have you been referred to a dermatologist? I would suggest that you talk to your GP about how you are feeling and ask for a dermatology referral as you need assessment and other treatment options for active acne. Acne scarring is difficult to treat but there are options, including skin camouflage but active disease requires assessment, management and treatment. I wish you all the best and please do try and see a dermatologist.
