We look forward to welcoming you safely into our Skin Camouflage Services clinics.
We at Skin Camouflage Services are delighted to announce that we now offer some innovative options for camouflaging larger areas of visible skin difference.
We have been receiving enquiries about a product fairly new to the UK called Microskin™ and you may be curious to know whether this could be the cover solution for your skin difference, whether that be altered pigmentation or scarring. Developed in Australia, Microskin™ is a durable, ‘second skin’ technology which stays on the skin for several days while allowing your skin to breath and move as normal. It can be applied using a sponge or air brush technique which is particularly good where a larger area needs to be camouflaged. It does not rub off and is waterproof. If not actively removed using a serum, it will simply shed over a few days just like skin cells until you reapply it. We are proud to share with you that Vanessa Jane Davies is currently the only expert medical skin camouflage practitioner in the UK certified to provide Microskin™ consultations.
However, being an independent practice means we are not bound to any one product and so have the freedom to ensure that we can select the right product for your needs. None of the products in our repertoire is a ‘one size fits all’ solution for every skin camouflage requirement.
"I was apprehensive at first about how the new camouflage technique would work over my large area of scaring. Vanessa was so lovely and supportive from the moment we met. She explained the various camouflage options in detail and answered any questions I had. She made sure I was happy with the products and the results I was getting. Very happy with my appointment, I chose the airbrush technique. Thank you!" (Helena).
We now have Microskin™ and a number of other effective camouflage pigments particularly suited to covering larger areas, one other new product can also be applied using an airbrush and does not require ‘fixing’, another option is an easily applied body cover cream which is applied much like you would a moisturiser or with a body brush. Each product type has different merits for different applications, whether it’s the range of colour options available to achieve an accurate colour match or getting the coverage needed whilst still achieving a natural look. Getting the right colour match, the right coverage and the right application technique for you is key to the success of your skin camouflage. Realistically, this can only be achieved by consulting an experienced, independent expert. When you come for your appointment, Vanessa will take into account your individual skin camouflage requirements; your colour match and your lifestyle to find the right solution for you. We want you to be happy with your skin camouflage and confident about your appearance so you can forget your skin differences and get on with your life.
This is why we are offering a consultation especially for larger area skin camouflage needs. We will have the range of products described above available on the day to ensure we can select the best colour match, coverage and lifestyle choice for you. We cannot guarantee that any one particular product will be the correct choice for you, this will be assessed on the day. When we have agreed the best choice together, we are happy to arrange delivery of the products and any equipment you may need directly to you or, you can order them directly yourself.

"Very friendly and professional consultation. My partner was informed of numerous products to best suit her needs in which she could sample until she found the perfect match. I was included in all the choices for my partner as Vanessa understood the importance of a second opinion and working together". (Ross).
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!
