Scars

I have a deep hole/pit on my cheek which get clogged with makeup and is unsightly. GP says an old acne scar. Can I do anything about it?

Hello Emily,

It would certainly be worthwhile looking at skin camouflage as an option. You only need tiny amounts of the cover creams to disguise the colour difference and any shadows resulting from the indentation.The amounts of pigment are so small that they will are unlikely to clog the scar as you have described.

Take a look at NHS appointments via Changing Faces or you can access private appointments across the country. During the appointment you will be assessed, colour matched and taught how to apply the products with support and advice to follow.

Please let me know if you need any further information.
