You can change your appearance in Starfield after your initial character creation session at the beginning of the game. Though it will cost you a few Credits, you can change how your character looks and even their name if you think of one that suits them better.

The only part of your character that it seems that you cannot change in Starfield after the initial character creation is their background and traits. However, everything else from their tattoos to their complexion can be altered as many times as you want.

Without further ado, we're here to show you how to change your appearance in Starfield and list all of the changes you can make.

How to change your appearance in Starfield

To change your appearance in Starfield you need to visit any Enhance store. You can find this 'store' in most of the major settlements, such as in Cydonia on Mars. The easiest one to find, and the example we're going to use for this guide, is the one in New Atlantis.

On New Atlantis, head to the Commercial District within the Mast District and then head to New Atlantis Corporate Park.

When you're in the Corporate Park, look for the Settled Systems News Network (SSNN) building.

When you find it, look opposite it and around until you find a store called 'Enhance'. This is where you can change your character's appearance for a fee.

Once you find the store, head inside to the front desk and speak to Warner Cornell. Select the 'I'd like to make use of your services' conversation option to begin.

Customising your character will cost 500 Credits at Enhance.
