Dr.Oz show, promising vitiligo concealing method
On April 13, 2010, the Dr. Oz did a segment about a new method to conceal vitiligo called Microskin. The special guest with vitiligo was Tracy Edwards, a 47 years old woman. Her vitiligo began when she was 34 after she gave birth to her son Timothy. She explained that every time she looks in the mirror she feels like a monster and that she is ashamed to show her face because people stare at her whenever she goes out.
Dr Roy Geronemus treated Tracy’s vitiligo with a new procedure called Microskin which is like a second skin to match her own. It doesn’t require makeup, it won’t come off in the shower or while swimming, but it only lasts a few days.
Micro Skin of New York donated one year of the Micro Skin product to Tracy for one year.
What is Microskin?
Microskin is a simulated second skin which is formulated individually to color correct skin conditions. It is a light liquidized application which is applied on to the epidermis (top layer of skin). Microskin is not a cream, and doesn’t have the makeup appearance like other camouflage products. Once applied, Microskin is durable, flexible, and it won’t rub off on clothing or linen. It’s waterproof and allows your skin to breathe. Microskin is suitable for all genders and skin types.
