We had a story tonight (Wed 14th) about Microskin, and how it covers PWS and skin that lacks colouring. It is like a makeup, but stays on for days. It was terrific. It has been a bright spot in my day, that Claire, if she wishes, can cover up her facial b/mark using this product and not having to use bulk makeup.
Did anyone else see the story....maybe Clara in Melbourne

Okay, I should have done a bit more research before posting before, but here is the website for this product www.microskin.com.au
I am also so excited that they are 2hrs from where I live. Firstly, it is nice to have it in Australia, but to be in the same state is even better. Sorry, just on an absolute high about all this info.......
yeah, i didn't watch it, but Eloisa (facial PWS) did, and we were talking about it! I also looked up the website. It looks a bit heavy, but i've tried everything else so it doesn't hurt trying! Now i just cover my pws with makeup, as with treatments (alot) it has gotten so much lighter and smaller!
