Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.
Have you or someone you know been diagnosed with Breast Cancer? Here at Aesthetic Therapies we see many patients with hair loss on scalp, eyebrows, eyelashes and other skin conditions such as extreme dryness directly related to Cancer and Chemotherapy. We want you to know that we are here to help you look good and feel better. We are Certified Facilitators for the Look Good, Feel Better Program of the American Cancer Society.
Your hair and Chemotherapy: Hair loss occurs during chemotherapy because it targets all rapidly dividing cells—healthy cells as well as cancer cells. Hair follicles, the structures in the skin filled with tiny blood vessels that make hair, are some of the fastest-growing cells in the body. If you're not in cancer treatment, your hair follicles divide every 23 to 72 hours. But as the chemo does its work against cancer cells, it also destroys hair cells. This hair loss can be devastating for many, so we are here to help! We offer multiple treatments such as permanent make up for eye lining or eyebrows, permanent make up (3D Design) for Nipples, and PRP Hair Restoration (post 6 months). Along with treatments we carry Revitalash and Zenagen products to promote hair growth too!

Your skin and Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy often causes dry, irritated skin. Rather than waiting to deal with symptoms after treatment starts, you can take steps to minimize skin problems about one week before beginning chemo. Then, they can continue the regimen during treatment. There are many things that you can do to prevent dry skin. People tend to think of dry skin as just a cosmetic problem, but dry skin can get so severely dry that it becomes inflamed and more susceptible to infections.
