This article, authored by Alexandra Zani and published by Dermascope Magazine is a MUST READ article. Alexandra talks about electrotherapy devices; chemical peels and the advanced-cosmeceutical chemistry, that offer cosmetic improvements for the face and body. When providing skin and body care services to those undergoing active cancer treatment, please ensure you have a good understanding of what is happening in the skin as a result of devices or other treatment offered and ensure you know what side effects your client may have as a result of the disease and/or the treatment. You may find you cannot apply most of these modalities – remember, most have not been tested clinically on people undergoing cancer treatment. You may be taking an added risk by using some of this equipment if you don’t truly understand the concept behind cancer and what the equipment or services can do.
