Current estimates are that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. More than 3.5 million cases of non-melanoma skin cancer, including basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, are diagnosed in the United States every year.
The worst thing about skin cancer is that left untreated, it can kill you. A secondary concern is worrying about the scar one may be left with after treatment. Patients won't know how bad it will be until the doctor starts cutting and learns just what the cancer is like. This is particularly nerve wracking when the cancer is on the face. The good news is that now there is Dermaflage, the first at home cosmetic that functions as a second skin to fully cover skin cancer scars on the face and body.
GENERAL MAKEUP TIPS WITH DERMAFLAGE
WHAT IS DERMAFLAGE?
The recessed nature of these imperfections cannot be effectively hidden using makeup, leaving expensive and often ineffective medical procedures as the only viable option. Far superior to traditional cosmetics and concealers, Dermaflage fills and conceals the recessed area. Used improperly, makeup can look cakey and does not effectively fill the sunken areas of the skin. Dermaflage is translucent to let your natural pigment come through, flexible so that it moves with the skin, water proof and lasts all day.

FROM THE EXPERTS
Kim Greene, veteran beauty and special effects makeup artist with over 50 Department Head Film and Television credits. “I use Dermafage personally to conceal a Mohs scar above my lip from having skin cancer. As a professional makeup artist in film and TV it's a staple in my kit to use on my actors to conceal scars including those caused by skin cancer removal. The Dermaflage is nearly invisible. I also use it to create realistic makeup special effects since it mimics skin so well."
Dr. Carl Soderstrom, Illinois Board Certified Dermatologist “Silicone in skin products is amazing. I have been using Dermflage for a couple of years now and the results are unbelievable. Scars can be covered cosmetically and concealed for hours and days-instantly. What I like the most is chicken pox scars, acne scars, and post trauma or surgical scars that are depressed can be filled to perfection. Color matching is easy, and most of all, patients love it. I have seen no adverse reactions in my patients.”
