After undergoing a breast lift/augmentation in 2005, Co-Founder, Gina Franklin experienced complications and was forced to have a second surgery. Unfortunately, this second surgery resulted in a recovery that took far longer than expected, as well as severe scarring on her breasts.
Although she did what she could to diminish the scars, nothing seemed to work. Her doctor recommended silicone bandages, but there was nothing on the market at the time for post surgical breast procedures. The only options were overpriced sheeting online or tiny 1 inch bandages from the local drug store (at a huge mark up!). Gina was forced to cut bandages and add parts in order to fit and cover her scars fully, which ended up wasting more product than she could actually use. Gina was pushed to the point of debating whether to continue scar treatment or to go without. Though, Gina was determined to find a happy medium.
Gina and MarCee met in the summer of 2008 at a music event hosted by a mutual promoter friend. In November 2016, the two ladies met up again, at yet another music event, and started to catch up.
MarCee and Gina talked about what they were working on and began to share their future plans. Over a casual dinner, Gina explained her concept for a new product that would help women with breast scars heal better, but lacked the funding to get the company off the ground. Fate would have it, MarCee was looking to invest in a new business that helps others, and with her resources, the journey began and Generation Skin was born!
Gina and MarCee teamed up to design and create “Sunset Bloom” by Generation Skin, a universal breast scar rejuvenation patch with guaranteed quality, beauty, coverage, and efficiency. In addition, the patches are water-resistant, contain no medication, and are reusable, making them more productive and cost efficient. Sunset Bloom covers most breast scars, including masectomies.
When Gina was recovering from her surgery and accepting her new scars, she found the truth about healing; that our emotional state of mind can make a huge impact on our ultimate recovery. The Generation Skin “Sunset Bloom” patches were beautifully designed to give healers an uplifting experience and to remind them of their beauty no matter their circumstance.

Gina created the concept for Generation Skin’s Universal Breast Patches after undergoing major surgery, leaving her breasts severely scarred. After trying every option on the market, she realized there was no product available that would support the breasts, treat scars fast, sufficiently cover scars of all sizes and origin, looked beautiful, and wouldn’t cost the consumer an arm and a leg. So, she came up with the concept for the Generation Skin “Sunset Bloom” Universal Scar Patch.
