What is oncology aesthetics?
Oncology aesthetics is simply skin care specific to cancer patients. The goal of the oncology certified aesthetician is to provide restorative skin care therapies with an emphasis on client safety and environmental sanitation. This includes understanding the special health needs of a client going through cancer recovery and choosing appropriate professional skin care products, ingredients and protocols for cancer related skin conditions.
An oncology certified aesthetician can help with some of the visual skin damage that occurs during oncology treatments. The restorative facial treatment for our oncology clients is designed to be a relaxing holistic spa service that helps nourish and restore the integrity of the skin.
Product knowledge is crucial when treating an oncology client. There are many ingredients that should be avoided and many that are recommended. A certified oncology aesthetician will be educated in this vast area. The services that can be performed are limited as well. Only restorative treatments can be performed during and up to one year of completing oncology medical treatments.
The information provided by the oncology aesthetician does not take the place of any information your physician has provided you. Always follow the guidelines of your medical advisors.
