Radiation Skin Relief

More than half of all people with cancer will receive radiation therapy as part of their treatment. Radiation therapy uses beams of intense energy to kill cancer cells. Most methods are precise and directly target the cancer while protecting healthy tissue around it. However, radiation is damaging to the DNA in healthy skin cells, so changes in the skin are a common side effect experienced by those undergoing therapy.

You may or may not have side effects from radiation therapy. The more you understand and prepare for these, the easier your journey will be.

Radiaura Dermocosmetics is your partner for any skin-related side effects. These could include:

Redness and irritation

Dry, flaky, peeling skin

Itchy skin

Hair loss

Bruising and broken capillaries

Changes in skin texture

Changes in nails and cuticles

Sun sensitivity
