Breast Cancer Awareness Month

​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/ReGenesis Products to promote hair growth too!
Through the end of October receive 10% off any related treatment.

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.

Our tips to prevent dry skin problems during chemotherapy;
Avoid long, hot showers or baths.
Use gentle, fragrance-free soaps and laundry detergent.
Use moisturizers, preferably creams or ointments rather than lotions because the thicker consistency is better at preventing skin dehydration. Apply the cream within 15 minutes of showering. Reapply moisturizer at night, and moisturize your hands every time after you wash them. Our favorites are Nightly-Renewal Cream by Vivier, and Luminesce PM, EltaMD PM Moisturizer and EltaMD Moisture-Rich Body Creme
Some chemotherapy drugs make skin more susceptible to sunburn. Use a sunscreen with at least an SPF 30 or greater, and make sure that it protects against both UVA AND UVB rays (broad spectrum). Protection against UVA requires ingredients such as zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, or avobenzone. We carry the complete line of EltaMD sunscreens that not only will give you the broad spectrum protection you need but can also be tailored to your skin type and shade too.
Gently exfoliate your skin. This can be done with creams and topicals, but it can also be done starting with your washcloth. Our top seller, the "Magic Mitt" can do just that with or without cleanser. The magic mitt has tiny loops of antimicrobial cloth that fluff off dead skin cells to help your skin turn over and look healthy. Additionally to a exfoliating washcloth, having a Gommage treatment can help with the shedding of dead skin cells and leave your skin glowing.

New season, new skin-care regimen.
Tips for transitioning your skin care regimen.

Exfoliate: Snow, sludge, and rain can cause season-long buildup on the skin—of dead skin cells, leftover product, and environmental toxins—which is why we recommend exfoliating in the new season. A microdermabrasion, followed by a moisturizing mask, will help get rid of that old dead, winter skin. Or try our Gommage treatment to take layers of dead skin cells off with a relaxing facial massage. If you are weary of treatments try a take home topical exfoliation product such as Vivier’s AHA/BHA Exfoliate Cream or SkinTx Exfoliate Cream. Another tip is to use a antimicrobal wash cloth to exfoliate while cleansing, plus it also prolongs your cleanser’s life. What wash cloth do we recommend? Jane Iredale’s Magic Mitt. To keep skin smooth and hydrated we recommend the daily use of Vitamin C, moisturizer and of course a sunblock to follow.

Switch Moisturizers: Gone are the days of duck boots, fur-lined hoods, and loading up your visage with thick creams and serums to help fight off the wicked winter wind. Come spring, it's time to swap out your heavy formulas for lighter lotions. Certain products can weigh you down especially in humid weather. Which is why we recommend an oil-free moisturizer, which goes on light and smooth, but is just moisturizing enough to quench skin without producing excessive oil production. Our favorite? Hydragel by VivierSkin is a hyaluronic gel, which brings a surge of moisture to your skin but feels light and fresh.

Apply (and re-apply) sunscreen: After a months spent bundled up in beanies and parkas, slathering on sun protection is a must once temps start to rise We always suggest using a daily SPF anytime of the year but spring and summer especially. Springtime is actually a high risk time for sunburns and sun damage since the sun is actually closer to the earth this time of year. Apply sunscreen every morning and reapply it again before any outdoor activity during the day. Our SPF recommendation: EltaMD Clear zinc oxide sunscreen that also contains niacinamide to help give the skin a glow and that summer tint. Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 that strengthens the skin's outer layers, improves elasticity, and curbs redness and irritation, used all year around for anyone with rosacea and acneic skin.

Add an eye cream: Because the sun's more prominent in the spring people are more prone to squinting. To combat the fine lines and wrinkles that can form around the eyes, find an eye cream with a high concentration of antioxidants and peptides. The duo work to both ward-off the collagen-destroying effects of UVA rays, and plump up the fine lines and wrinkles that have already formed. Our favorite? VivierSkin’s Platine Peptide CR Eye Cream. Of course, a pair of course a big pair of sunglasses is never a bad idea, either.

Why we take FRAGRANCE FREE so serious

Symptoms of a fragrance allergy can range from classic allergic reactions, such as sneezing, runny nose and watery eyes; to headaches and dizziness; to respiratory issues, such as breathing difficulties and wheezing; to skin reactions, such as itching, hives, and other rashes. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, fragrances are considered the leading cause of cosmetic contact dermatitis. As a health problem, this sensitivity alone affects more than 2 million people, and studies suggest that sensitivity is on the rise. That is why we ask you to be courteous to others by not wearing any type of fragrance to your appointments so that we can to protect other patients and ourselves from adverse health effects. A fragrance can permeate the air, clothes or treatment area, even for longer than the owners appointment, putting others at risk afterwards or sometimes even for the rest of the day. This a very serious condition. It can cause a life threatening condition.

Listed below are some principal chemicals in everyday fragrances and their health risks
Acetone: When inhaled, it can cause mild central nervous system disturbances such as dizziness, nausea, loss of coordination, slurred speech, and drowsiness. It can irritate the eyes, nose, throat, and skin.
alpha-Pinene It can be a moderate irritant to skin, eyes, and mucus membranes.
Benzyl Alcohol It can be irritating to the upper respiratory tract, skin, eyes, and mucus membranes. It can cause headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and drops in blood pressure.
Benzaldehyde It may cause irritation to the mouth, throat, eyes, skin, lungs, and GI tract. It may also cause nausea, abdominal pain, depression and contact dermatitis.
Ethanol One of its symptoms can be fatigue and it can irritate the eyes and upper respiratory tract. It can also cause a central nervous system disorder.
Ethyl Acetate: Repeated or prolonged contact can cause drying and cracking of the skin.
g-Terpinene: Can be found in cologne, perfume, soap, shaving cream, deodorant, and air freshener. It can cause asthma and central nervous system disorders.
Linalool: The most abundant chemical in perfume and fragrance products, it is known to cause lethargy, depression, and life threatening respiratory effects.

Preventing and Treating Fragrance Sensitivities
The best medicine is really prevention — and that means keeping all fragrances off yourself and out of your environment. There just aren't any "safe" fragrances or products that can recommend for anyone who has experienced allergy symptoms due to fragrance sensitivities.
Any product with a scent can be irritating. We suggest utilizing scent-free products if at all possible. That means fragrance-free:
Lotions, especially body lotions
Soaps and deodorant
Skin care products - our recommended products are fragrance free
Laundry detergents
Fabric softeners

As providers for Look Good, Feel Better, we serve patients in active cancer treatment. They have difficulty with excessive scents and fragrance.
We will now be rescheduling your appointment if you have any type of fragrance on that may cause harm to us our any of our other patients.
