A minor number of the conditions that people use skin camouflage for includes the following;
– Vitiligo or loss of skin pigmentation
– Scarring, including acne scarring and injury scars
Let’s have a brief insight and understanding of some of these skin defects that require camouflage
While many consider vitiligo patterns to be exceptionally special and beautiful, some preferto cover it. If you choose to hide these areas, it is usually advised that you match your foundation shade to your skin tone of preference.
Vitiligo is caused by a loss of pigment in the skin, due to destruction of pigment forming cells known as melanocytes.
This loss of pigmentation may affect all races and skin tones. The areas which demonstrate a loss of pigment may begin anywhere on the body including your face, neck, armpits, elbows, hands, and knees and may or may not be symmetrical
The mark that is left on the skin after a wound heals is referred to as a Scar. The body produces collagen, the main structural protein found on skins, which reconnects the broken tissues. The skin is however discolored or inflamed after the healing process and the appearance of the scar can be irritating to the eyes and unattractive to people around, even to those who have them on their skins. It also resonates with unpleasant recalls of the horrific event or accident that caused the injury. That is basically the reason why skin camouflage treatments make the visibility of these scars inconspicuous and help clients feel bold, smart and beautiful.
Keloids are a type of swollen scar. They usually appear where the skin has cured after an injury. They often grow to be much visible than the original injury that caused the scar.
Anything that can cause a scar can cause a keloid. This includes being burned, cut, or having severe acne. Keloids can also develop after you get a body piercing or a tattoo, or have surgery.
A keloid has the following features:
– Appear and grow slowly.
– Begin as a raised pink, red, or purple scar.
– Feel different than the surrounding skin.
– Cause pain, itching, or tenderness.
