Skin changes are common during hematology & oncology therapies due to a number of reasons and are frequently the result of surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, medications, or some combination thereof.
Clinical Oncology Esthetics® provides comfort and relief through skin therapy treatments (facials, skin, body care and cosmetics) for clients undergoing treatment for, or recovering from cancer. Xanadu’s oncology facials, scalp treatments, hand and foot care, and gentle body care are tailored for each individual. Treatments are designed for individuals whose skin has been negatively affected by cancer treatment. Common side effects from chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, and some medications can include the following:
- Follicular eruption
- Pigmentation changes
- Dry, itchy, red, flaky skin
- Nail changes & toxicity
- Sensitivity to products, fragrances & ingredients
Certified Oncology Estheticians® have undergone extensive education to understand how cancer and therapy treatments affect the body at the dermal and lymphatic level. COEs are thoroughly familiar with medications, side effects, and the importance of proper sanitation. We are proud to offer skin care for radiation therapy to guide a restorative process for our clients’ skin.
