Cancer patients who undergo chemotherapy and radiation treatments often suffer visible and painful side effects on their skin.
The treatments, while killing cancer cells, also affect healthy cells including the skin and nails. Patients can suffer from varying degrees of hair loss, rashes, dry skin, peeling, blisters, swelling and loss of feeling.
Our lead Esthetician, Amandine, is licensed in Onconlogy esthetics and has several years of working with these skin ailments caused by cancer treatments. Her treatment room is all about comfort, with soothing background music and a calming, clean scent. Each facial treatment includes hand, foot and scalp massages and is aimed at nourishing the patient’s skin… and soul.
The power of touch is an important part of healing. The therapy, delivered by Amandine’s hands and supported with her listening ears, soothes patients’ emotional side.
During your facial, we use a very high-end skin care line specifically designed for oncology work. It is completely free of any harsh chemicals, dyes or additives, and is non-petroleum based.
