Once the front woman for a popular acne skin care brand, Kaley Cuoco is no stranger to the woes of what this skin condition can do – recessed scarring followed by lowered self esteem. If you, too suffer from day-after acne scarring, try Dermaflage – a product that acts as a “second skin” that fully covers scars from acne, skin cancer, surgical piercings, and scars due to injuries.
Developed by Hollywood special effects makeup artists, Dermaflage fills and conceals sunken areas of the skin that can’t be easily hidden using traditional cosmetics and concealers. Dermaflage is translucent enough to let your natural pigment come through, waterproof and flexible, so it moves with your skin and lasts all day. The cost for the starter kit is $60 at dermaflage.com and comes with two applicators and tools, enough for 60-200+ applications.
To use, simply twist new mixing tip onto the Dermaflage applicator and squeeze the silicone blend into the scar. With a finger or spatula tool, blend the edges into the skin. The silicone blend will start to set immediately, so make sure you smooth the product on to your skin quickly. Use smooth, even strokes and don’t dab. Next, place Skin Texture Pad over the Dermaflage blend. Gently press around the edges of the scar. Hold the pad in place for at least 1 minute while the product sets. Lift pad from edge. Dermaflage will harden fully after five minutes.
Why You’ll Love It
Dermaflage is great for dealing with the after-effects of acne scarring because it conceals instantly, creates smooth-looking skin that can be achieved in only three steps, there are no injections, and there is a match for your skin tone. You can also use this product on other recessed scars on your body and will last up to 36 hours as you swim and shower.
