2011 Microskin in a Spray Can
What is Microskin™?
Microskin™ is a simulated second skin which is formulated individually to colour correct skin conditions. It is a light, liquidized application which is applied on to the epidermis (top layer of the skin). Microskin™ is not a cream and doesn’t have the make-up appearance like other camouflage products. Once applied, Microskin™ is durable, flexible and it won’t rub off on clothing or linen. It is waterproof and allows the skin to breathe. Microskin™ is suitable for all genders and skin types.
How long does the product last on your skin?
It varies with different skin types (oily/dry) and on different parts of the body. Microskin™ can last 1 – 2 days on the face, as the natural oils will breakdown the Microskin™ more quickly than other areas. On other parts of the body, you can get up to several days with an application. You might only need a slight touch-up to achieve a longer lasting result.
When applied to the hands, the application will also break down more quickly due to the frequent contact and washing and drying of hands. Burn patients are able to get more wear out of their Microskin™ application as they don’t have the sweat or oil glands to break it down. On active or outdoor people, Microskin™ may break down faster due to climatic conditions.
Where do I obtain Microskin™?
The initial consultation and training is held at a Microskin™ clinic. A customized or off the shelf genic colour can then be ordered by email or phone or online.
Is it a make-up?
No. Microskin™ is not a make-up or a cream camouflage.
How is it applied?
There are options to applying Microskin™.
Stipple is the technique meant for areas that are smaller than the size of the palm of your hand. A specially designed stipple sponge is used. The pore like texture of the sponge allows the Microskin™ to be applied in layers, giving the Microskin™ a skin like texture.
The airbrushing is the technique used for larger areas. The airbrush allows the user to achieve a fine, even application, which dries quickly. This option is especially effective on the face where you can achieve a very natural and flawless look.
Microskin colour can also be put into a Spray can or a Roll On applicator which gives the user a quick and easier application whether for travelling or touch ups.
A consultant will determine which best caters for your condition.
Will it work on all skin colours?
Yes, Microskin™ caters for all skin colours.
Is there any age bracket?
No, Microskin™ has been successfully applied to all ages.
Is Microskin™ safe?
To date there has been no recorded adverse reactions.
What if my skin colour changes during the year?
You may return to the Microskin™ clinic for a re-scan if you notice a change in your skin tone due to sun exposure. We recommend the use of sunscreen at all times while outdoors.
Have there been any clinical trials or studies?
Microskin™ has undertaken trials with the Royal Brisbane Children’s Hospital to study the psychological and psychosocial functioning of children with burn Scarring. International renowned burns specialist, Associate Professor Roy Kimble, explained that the clinical trial recognised the breakthrough that Microskin™ presents for children with burn scars. “Children with burns can experience emotional difficulties as a result of their scarring. This product can help alleviate these difficulties and help with a patient’s overall recovery and rehabilitation”.
What Microskin™ cannot do
Microskin™ will not alter skin texture. Microskin™ helps camouflage but will not make skin imperfections completely disappear procedure.
What happens at a Microskin™ Clinic?
On arrival at a Microskin™ clinic, your consultant will scan the affected and unaffected areas of your skin. This procedure is done using state of the art technology and is completely painless and safe. After this process, your unique and individual colour formula is then made. Please allow 1 – 2 hours for processing. You will then be trained on the application of Microskin™, either with an airbrush or stipple sponge, so that you can apply your Microskin™ colour in the privacy of your own home.
Your Microskin™ formula is then stored in our data base and can be mixed and provided for you when required.
