Most Chemotherapy drugs block activity or ability of cells to divide or grow. The effects are not limited to cancer cells but normal growing and dividing cells leading to dermatological side effects and an Immune system severely suppressed causing higher risk infection.
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 feelings.
With the numerous skin related effects from cancer treatments, Integrated Oncology Beauty Therapy can provide great benefits such as easing symptoms and skin reactions, improving skin and overall health.
From facial skin treatments to hand, foot and scalp massages, each session aims to nourish the skin. The massage needs to be tailored depending on node removal and type of treatment.
