Dermatology Animation

Dermatology animations can be used to explain skin treatments, medications, and plastic surgery

3D Dermatology and Cosmetic Animation Video

Dermatology animation, a moving visualization of the medical specialty which focuses on the skin, and the treatment of skin diseases and skin disorders.

Skin is the human body’s largest organ and we’ve animated and explained a significant number of skin conditions and treatments, including 3D skin animations for acne care, medical device animation for laser treatments,  cosmetic surgery, and everything in-between. We can help assist with all of your medical device marketing need’s for your cosmetic products such as Botox® injections, dermabrasion, noninvasive energy devices, plastic surgery video animations, and much more.

Ghost Productions and Medical Illustrations

Ghost Productions can craft medical illustrations to explain how medications treat skin conditions or fully animated productions to help increase patient understanding or assure proper training of practitioners and medical providers. A fully interactive eLearning program can be accessed from anywhere around the globe to help sales representatives adhere to guidelines and regulations.


If you’ve been in the medical field long, you’ve probably realized patients don’t always know what’s best for them. You can’t blame them — they’re often just scared or confused about their options. Now that you have access to quality wound-healing 3D skin animations, dermatology illustrations, plastic surgery video animations and other explanatory materials, you’ll be able to give them the peace of mind they need to select the most beneficial course of treatment.


The days of tired textbooks and endless flashcards are behind us now, a change welcomed by countless medical students. In the dermatological field, those in training can’t just memorize the information until they’ve scored highly enough on an exam. They must continually apply their knowledge in real-life applications, which is easier when learned from immersive and interactive content like 3D skin animation. They’ll even have a higher comprehension, by 19 percent, than traditional surgical videos allow.

Sales Staff

You rely on your sales team, but they don’t always have the proper tools to understand what they’re selling. When you use 3D dermatology animations or plastic surgery video animations, they’ll better understand the anatomy your product affects and why it matters, bringing their newfound knowledge and passion to your customers.

Health Administrators

You know they need your product, but they don’t necessarily realize it yet. When they can fully understand the information you present because they see it in a vivid animation, health administrators are more likely to adopt your device or medicine into their facility and use it to benefit patients and better the medical world.


The people you need to back your products don’t always have a lot of time to waste listening to a long pitch, which is why companies showing long, boring PowerPoint presentations often strike out. Instead, show your investors a 3D skin animation video and medical illustrations that break down complex, technical concepts quickly, so they can effortlessly understand the benefits of your product.

Wound Care Animation Case Study

Dermatology Animation Case Study: Extracellular Matrix Animation for Hollister Wound Care

Mission: Create a visually compelling representation of a native ECM that is degraded from the inflammatory cycle. Then show the effect of using the Endoform ECM bandage to interrupt the inflammatory cycle and help a chronic wound heal.

Solution: Initial production focused on solving one of Hollister’s main education challenges, to help customers to comprehend the details of the inflammatory cycle; Establish the stages of the cycle, explaining the role of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) proteins. Then we wanted to show how the Endoform sacrificial extracellular matrix (ECM) helps draw away MMP’s, allowing the wound to retain new collagen fibers in the native ECM and help heal a chronic wound.

We met with a number of specialists to discuss how best to portray the collagen fibers and MMP’s. We settled on the triple coiled version in the final piece. We built a number of dynamic systems but found that a simple wire deformer and solid animation worked best. The modeling of the native ECM was also an interesting challenge. Our Maya Rigger, Jake Knight, developed a creative spline randomizer that we still use in our current animation pipeline.

We went on to produce a few versions of this animation for Hollister showing the wound granulating and a time-lapse showing the wound healing process over a couple weeks. The Endoform is a very effective answer to healing chronic wounds. We’re glad to have contributed to their marketing and education process and wish them the best in the future. The full version of the animation can be seen at their Endoform webpage:
