A dear friend of mine who went through a difficult battle against breast cancer ended up being the motivation I needed to obtain the Esthetician Oncology Certification.
Certified Oncology Esthetics advocate for people to take some time from their day to focus on themselves, so that they can feel better regardless of whether it's something as straightforward as washing your face,applying lotion, lipstick or even just admiring yourself in the mirror.
For many reason Cancer survivor or cancer patients avoid going to Spas because their skin is very sensitive to creams and lotion, the worry about having the wrong massage that can increase the fluids in their lymph and overall their mind is more occupied with survival not with beauty and fashion.
Cancer Treatment may affect the skin in different forms and may resulting is redness, irritation, dehydration,change of color,dryness, cracks, peeling, itching,red patches,acne,blisters,scars and other issues.
The importance to have a Certified Oncology Esthetics doing the Facial for these patient is imperative. Surgery and radiation can cut off or damage some of the nodes and vessels that lymph moves through. Over time, the flow of lymph can overwhelm the remaining pathways, resulting in a backup of fluid into the body’s tissues. Causing what we call "Lymphedema".
Our Goal working with cancer patient is to evaluate what skin products they are currently using and advise safer products lines for soothing,calming,nourishing and hydrating ingredients.
