This Burn Victim Uses Scar Camouflage to Heal

54 568 views | 29 Jan. 2019

As a little girl, Basma

As a little girl, Basma Hameed suffered a painful accident that left half of her face obscured by third-degree burns. She endured hundreds of surgeries and laser treatments to repair her damaged skin before a plastic surgeon told her nothing else could be done—an answer she refused to accept. Hameed went on to pioneer a groundbreaking procedure that allows pigment to be implanted into scar tissue as a way of camouflaging the damage. Today, equipped with a steady hand and unflinching optimism, she helps thousands of people heal from the inside out at her Basma Hameed Clinic.

I think burns are badass like lazaravic from uncharted 2 but i think if it had a cool backstory like a molotove or escaping a burning tank but it's probably painful

I love what she is doing and all but I have one question, wouldn't it hurt more since your doing it on scar tissue? this may be a dumb question because I don't know much about scare tissue but I am genuinely curious.

Dr. Doppeldecker

Astor Reinhardt

Now if only there was something for rosacea...for years I thought it was just acne but I grew out of my teen years and it never went away like it was supposed to...and my face was always bright red, so it always looked like I was blushing or embarrassed. Turns out it's rosacea...and my face is pretty much stuck like this. I can treat the acne but the redness? My skin doctor said it'll never go away...we can just stop it from getting worse...

Rose Gold

This woman is amazing and I’m so happy for her.. when ppl actually find their niche in life, it makes me feel like a proud parent watching their kid perform lol
