Skin camouflage creams are a completely non-invasive way of reducing the appearance of scarring whilst undergoing treatment or after treatment is complete. Skin camouflage creams are medical grade, pigmented (contains colour, like a temporary paint for the skin) cream that comes in many colours and can be mixed to match any skin colour. They can be used by any gender or age. Skin camouflage can help increase your confidence by reducing the appearance of your scar and the amount of staring and/or questions from others.
Several prescription and over-the-counter topical agents are available, many claim to alleviate symptoms, improve the appearance of scars and accelerate wound healing. Topical therapies have the advantage of being easy to use, are easily available and deliver the ingredients directly to the scar. Patients often decide (maybe based on word of mouth) themselves on which topical agents to use rather than through recommendations from a scar specialist. Topicals are not usually effective on their own and other treatments are also usually necessary. Some information on common topicals is given here:
