Covid-19 update - We are delighted to welcome you to your face-to-face consultation!
As Britain marches forward with an unprecedented vaccination programme and the eventual appearance of some much-needed sunshine, we can begin to look forward to a summer that more closely resembles ‘normal’. That said, whilst we embrace that the Covid-19 risk is currently receding in the UK, it has not gone away and we must proceed towards a relaxation of precautions with care.
Your wellbeing and that of our team continues to be our priority. We would like to reassure our patients and referrers that we continue to adhere to the strictest Covid-19 precautions at all of our clinics: Ten Harley Street, London, The Broad Street Practice Stamford, our GP Practice in Harrogate and hospital locations. Our team is also encouraged to take up their vaccination offer as soon as it is available to them and those with close patient contact have regular lateral flow tests.
Covid-19 Patient Guide
You will need to complete our Covid-19 screening questionnaire sent to you by email prior to your appointment to assess any issues that may put you at greater risk or to determine whether you should possibly take a test before you attend. Please ensure you are well for you, but most importantly free of potential covid symptoms before you attend your appointment, you will be required to complete a health declaration on the day.
You should be aware of and be willing to comply with our policy regarding face coverings, hand washing and social distancing. If you have an authorised exemption from wearing a face covering, we will need you to provide evidence of this.
We are asking you to follow just a few rules to continue to keep each other safe. If you have any questions or are unsure about something, please do contact Sue Ward on
020 467 8466 who will be happy to help. We look forward to seeing you very soon!
Skin Camouflage Services has a proud reputation for providing expert medical skin camouflage to those effected by visible skin differences in the UK at Ten Harley Street in London’s premier medical quarter since 2007. What you may not realise this that we have also been providing the same excellence with compassion for a host of international patients during that time.
Our international patients reach out to us for help in many ways. Whether that be self-referral, referrals by clinicians overseas familiar with our work and where treatment is Embassy funded. We know that access in medical skin camouflage is sadly lacking in so many people’s home countries. Even during this year of Covid 19 restrictions all over the world, we have continued to receive enquiries about treatment from as far away as Argentina, Los Angeles, New York, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, India, South Africa, Australia, and Europe to name but a few!
With Covid 19 international restrictions making it difficult to travel to London, we have been surprised by the volume of international patient enquires we have continued to receive. It occurred to us that while we have all had our lives impacted by Covid 19 this has also been a time for reflection and a time for many to focus on how we want to live when we get through this.
The skin conditions our enquirers would like help with are as varied as the countries from which they hail! They include Melasma, Vitiligo, Rosacea, Hypo and Hyper pigmentation following injury, including scarring from surgery, trauma, and burns. We also receive a high number of enquiries from those looking for help with managing their scarring following self-harm as they move forward with their lives. We know this last year of Covid 19 restrictions and anxieties has been particularly hard for many. All of these visible skin differences impact the way a person faces their world, wherever in the world…and they are all conditions we can help with.
Like to know more? We can arrange an initial, confidential video consultation to assess your skin camouflage needs. We can then begin planning the best bespoke treatment options ahead of your appointment here in the UK.
We are a wholly independent practice with world class products available which means we can select the best product and technique for your individual needs.
In addition to the more traditional skin camouflage creams and pigments we can also provide help where scarring is indented /ridged or around prosthetic margins with topical silicone dermal fillers.
We are also proud to be able to now announce that our founder and expert lead, Vanessa Jane Davies is the only Skin Camouflage Expert in the UK to be certified to provide a revolutionary, long lasting ‘second skin’ technique suitable for a number of skin conditions and injuries.
Take the first step… book your International patient appointment video consultation at 10 Harley Street London.
Skin Camouflage Services have been assessing and supporting international patients at 10 Harley Street London since 2007. Approximately a third of our patient list is made up of international patients from Europe, Middle East and Asia.
Following a trauma burn injury this young lady contacted Skin Camouflage Services to request and plan her skin camouflage appointment during her next trip to London. Our ‘Wrap Around Service’ of skin camouflage treatment and products which is available to our UK patients is also offered to our International patients giving peace of mind from the outset that they receive a first-class skin camouflage service. We are fortunate that we always remain the single point of contact no matter how complex the travel arrangements may be with sponsors and embassies which in turn means we can accommodate deadlines and short visits into our Harley Street schedules.
The skin camouflage assessment identified complex and extensive hypo-pigmentation with mottling to the feet and ankles. In addition, large areas of hyper-pigmentation extended towards the knees with a defining border.
The aim of the skin camouflage appointment was for the patient to gain confidence in the application of the skin camouflage creams and to feel happier with the appearance of her legs.
Patient application: Right Leg
Following tuition with Vanessa Jane Davies the patient achieved significant results in reducing the colour difference commencing with her right leg using a variety of camouflage creams, brushes, sponges and setting agents.
At Skin Camouflage Services our appointments take up to 2-hours because we understand that each patient learns differently. It is essential that everyone is given the opportunity to receive the best possible skin colour match, tuition and support and have the time and space needed to practice self application. For this reason we do not offer appointments less than 2 hours per patient.
At Skin Camouflage Services we are privileged to be able to share our news with you.
