Injury simulation is perhaps the most important and most often used of all character makeup techniques. If time and money permits, many injury simulations can be created with prosthetic appliances, but this is often not the case, nor necessary.
Such work includes the following: bruises/black eyes, burns, sunburns, frostbite, scratches/cuts, rabid effects, sutures, old & new scars, growths, compound fractures, broken nose, cauliflower ears, and bullet hits.
A wider definition encompasses visible health problems (including sickness and disease).
