Skin Care Empowers Patients During, After Cancer

While there may be similar skin care treatment plans from one person to the next, and certain treatments – like hydrafacial and dermaplaning – are appropriate for all skin types, addressing specific problems or changes is one area I focus on, to make sure my clients all look and feel their best, no matter what they are going through.

Over the years, I have worked with clients who have experienced a variety of health challenges. While medical doctors address the physical ailments, patients often are frustrated by side effects to their skin, such as dryness, rash, sensitivity, and more.

We live in an age when cancer treatments are often less invasive and more effective than ever before. According to the Journal of Oncology, while breast cancer treatments are “likely to cause less physical deformity from surgery than a half-century ago, (the are) more complex and extend over a longer period of time.” Often, these treatments include chemotherapy, radiation, and medications, all of which can affect the appearance and elasticity of the patient’s skin.

While a woman may feel as if she has little control over the types of medications and other clinical therapies she may receive to combat her medical condition, she often feels empowered and beautiful when she can control the look and feel of her skin.

At Head To Toe by Arlene, every client is treated as an individual, and recommended treatments or products can change based on the season of the year, age, and health conditions.

Because skin looks and functions at its best when it is properly hydrated, I always recommend my Signature Facial – Dermaplaning with Hydrafacial – which restores moisture and elasticity. I also recommend specific products that are free of chemicals, hormones, and synthetic ingredients, so that skin is not further irritated and can heal.

My Sociėtė line of skincare products pairs the most active ingredients in nature with the current technological and scientific advancements to solve specific skincare problems and conditions, regardless of the cause. I also carry TendSkin, NeoCutis, and B. Kamins skin care products, and Elta Sun Block, a medical grade product that is safe for all ages and skin types.

If you ever venture outside, you need to protect your skin from damaging UVA & UVB rays, and Elta MD is perfect for daily use on all skin, and is even safely used in conjunction with Retin-A therapy, photosensitive medications, and after plastic surgery.

When you know what works for you in terms of skin treatments and products, you can look and feel beautiful. Together, we can find the solutions that help you maintain healthy, beautiful skin at every age and experience life throws at you!
