October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

According to the World Health Organization, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide, where one out of every eight women will be diagnosed with this disease.

In recent years, we have seen a gradual reduction in female breast cancer incidence rates among women aged 50 and older. This is great news! 

So whether you yourself are diagnosed with Breast Cancer, or perhaps you may know someone who has been diagnosed, here is some helpful information in finding an esthetician to support any cancer patient in feeling nourished and refreshed.

What you need to know:

Oncology patients who have undergone chemotherapy and radiation experience extreme stress emotionally and physically. This kind of stress can leave patients with skin that is hypersensitive with dilated vessels which can lead to broken capillaries, hyperpigmentation, raised bumps, soreness, itchiness, dryness, and loss of elasticity. Many times oncology patients are seeking comfort and relief from the unpleasant side effects associated with cancer.

What is Oncology Esthetics:

Oncology esthetics is an in-depth advance education that is designed to provide estheticians with the knowledge of how to modify skincare and spa treatments to ensure a safe outcome for your skin. This kind of education complements medical oncology treatments, providing an integrative approach for patients. Since each patient is different, oncology estheticians follow a specialized and specific protocol to ensure that each guest is met with a level of heightened sensitivity based on the conditions that they may be dealing with. What this means, is that our team of experts provide you with a loving experience matched with a tranquil environment to help our guests feel calm and nurtured during your time with our skincare therapists.

How is an Oncology Facial different from Traditional Spa Treatments?


Prior to receiving treatment, our guests meet with our Oncology Esthetician so that they may do an in-depth analysis and understanding of their cancer journey. Our team is trained to identify and understand the long-term effects of cancer on the skin and how to provide treatment modifications that won’t cause reactions that will further compromise their already sensitized skin.

Once treatment has been identified, our team of experts use specific herbal compounds of ingredients to help assist the skin in the detoxification of chemotherapy and radiation for a more balanced and nourished skin experience. This loving touch facial, matched with a tranquil environment helps our guests feel calm and nurtured and  ensures that they leave feeling restored. 

If you are a cancer patient or know someone that has gone or is going through cancer treatments, we would love to help. Give us a call at 941-539-7990 or book directly at https://bit.ly/oncologyfacial
