For millions of people across the world, each day is a struggle. These individuals have one of several skin conditions that cause extensive discoloration or even scarring. Burns, vitiligo, rosacea, psoriasis, and other conditions leave many scrambling for limited options.
An Emotional Start
In 2005, Australian native Linda Lowndes met a young boy with an pigmentation disorder that forced him to stay inside. For Lowndes, the encounter was heartbreaking. But from sadness came inspiration, and MicroSkin was born.
Better than Makeup
MicroSkin is not makeup. It’s a “simulated second skin” that bonds to the epidermis, concealing discoloration and decreasing the appearance of scars. MicroSkin is far better than makeup in so many ways:
- The computerized color-matching system scans the skin and affected area, creating a product that matches each client’s unique skin tone
- All ages, genders, and skin types can use it
- It has unmatched staying power. It’s “flexible, waterproof,” and won’t transfer onto clothing or other fabrics
- Your skin can still “breathe”
That staying power, though, depends on the treatment area, skin type, and lifestyle of each client. Generally, MicroSkin stays on the face one to two days, and remains on the body for several days. But a few scenarios can decrease the staying power of the product:
- Having oiler skin
- Because of weather conditions and perspiration, an active or outdoor lifestyle will decrease the endurance of MicroSkin
- Wearing the product on your hands can cause the product to wear off sooner because of hand washing
Burn patients, however, will experience the longest wear time of all. Because these clients often do not have sweat or oil glands, the product will not break down as quickly.
MicroSkin seamlessly bonds to the epidermis, but the epidermis sheds each day. As a result, the product can usually only stay in place for 1 to 2 days.
The MicroSkin Process
MicroSkin is an exclusive, innovative product. Clients cannot buy the product from mass retailers and chain stores. It is available from one two US locations in New York or California.
First, the client will have a “one-on-one consultation” with a MicroSkin technician. This hour-long briefing occurs in five steps:
- The technician applies a sample of MicroSkin to the client’s affected area so the client understands how the product looks and feels.
- The technician explains how the technology works.
- The client decides whether or not he or she wants to enroll into the MicroSkin program.
- Upon enrollment, the technician scans the skin and affected area to obtain a color match.
- The technician teaches proper application techniques. For areas smaller than the palm of the hand, the client will use stippling. Larger areas require airbrushing.
Dos and Don’ts
- Don’t rush the application.
- Don’t use perfume, cologne, aftershave, cream or lotion to the treated area before or after application.
- Don’t sunbathe, apply a spray-tan, or use a tanning booth, as it will decrease the accuracy of your color match
- Don’t use oil- or silicone-based cosmetics after the application of MicroSkin
- Do use water-based cosmetics
- Do use sunblock on untreated areas
The Truth is in the Trials
The MicroSkin brand also undergoes regular medical studies, the company asserts, “to further understand the psychological effects of using a simulated second skin on people with burns.” In 2005, the Royal Children’s Hospital in Brisbane, Australia and the University of Queensland both conducted studies with glaring success. Then, in 2009, the Royal Brisbane Hospital proved that MicroSkin “improves psychosocial functioning in paediatric burns patients.”
MicroSkin has at last created a product that outshines all traditional cosmetics. It provides a natural result. is waterproof, and safe for everyone. From burns to vitiligo and nearly any skin condition in between, MicroSkin has got you covered.
