What we offer:
At La Crème we offer oncology treatments in our boutique. Before treatment begins, we sit down with you for a consultation. During your consultation we talk about not only your skin but your cancer treatments. This allows us to have a better understanding to what your skin has been through and our best course of action to help. This treatment is all about how we can help you and your skin while keeping you comfortable during these hard times. We will do everything we can to keep you comfortable throughout this entire process.
The education behind it:
We first start by learning and understanding the different types of cancer treatments and how they affect the body.
--> Radiation and Surgery are "local" treatments
--> Chemotherapy is a "systemic" form of treatment
Each type of treatment causes side effects on the body, however the types of side effects can vary.
Side effects can include : pain, swelling, scars from surgical procedures, skin discoloration, radiation dermatitis, erythema or reddening of the area, edema, partial loss of epidermal basal cells which can cause dryness, itching, scaling, flaking and peeling, dark circles, hyperpigmentation, crusting, blistering, fatigue, and hair loss.
With Oncology facials/treatments can help reduce or improve these side effects
