Oncology Skin Care
NeoGenesis honors and supports those affected by cancer and the professionals dedicated to serving them.
Cancer Treatment and the Effects on Skin
Our skin is the largest organ of the body and our first line of defense against sunlight, chemicals, microbes and the environment. It helps regulate body temperature, prevents water loss, and permits the sensations of touch, heat, and cold. Without our skin’s protection, we could not live.
When this big, beautiful organ is damaged or wounded from cancer treatments, such as Radiation or Chemotherapy, it affects all of its functions. When the skin doesn’t function properly, skin reactions may develop that vary in intensity for each individual and include:
- Radiation rash
- Dry or extremely dry skin that may appear in patches or all over the body
- Itchy skin
- Color changes in skin tone
With the proper care, these skin reactions are usually temporary. Both reaction and healing time will be unique to each person.
Until recently, patients’ skin health suffered with little or no option for healing skin reactions while undergoing treatments. That is changing with many more professionals receiving the advanced training to work with traumatized skin. The best time to begin this specialized skin care program is prior to any treatments. If this isn’t possible, seek out the guidance of a professional trained to soothe and heal traumatized skin, making the patient more comfortable as soon as symptoms appear.
Wellness and Aesthetics Practitioners
For Wellness and Esthetics Practitioners, we would like to introduce you to NeoGenesis and our Oncology product line.
At NeoGenesis, our core emphasis is serving the oncology community. We understand the effects cancer treatment has on the skin. Many of our products are Oncology friendly, non-toxic, organic and may be used for everyone.
Oncology Aesthetics is a specialty that provides skin care services to cancer patients either while undergoing cancer treatment or post treatment.
Aestheticians are professionally trained and licensed individuals who perform facial services as part of their profession. Some have advanced Oncology training and certifications, which ensures that the Aesthetician is properly trained to perform facials for those undergoing cancer treatments or in the weeks and months following treatment.
Aestheticians are an important part of the cancer patient’s support system. They provide a soothing touch, in a safe emotional space, to help their clients relax and recover.
