Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser and Anti-Aging Center is pleased to announce that we will now offer special treatments in the form of massage and facials for patients undergoing chemotherapy. These treatments can be beneficial to many patients, as massages are great for relaxation and facials can heal dry, fragile skin.
According to the American Cancer Society, studies have shown that gentle massage therapy by a trained masseuse provides a reduction in anxiety, stress, depression, fatigue, and other side effects associated with chemotherapy. It is true that massage will not decrease the spread of cancer; however, it can relieve associated unpleasant symptoms. We ensure the utmost hygiene and cleanliness to protect weakened immune systems, and work with you to learn about your condition, goals, and how we can best help you. It is important to note that people who have cancer should always inform their medical care provider of their massage therapy and address any concerns they may have.
A facial focused on restoring hydration to fragile skin can also be a relief for patients undergoing chemotherapy. Facials are an effective way of relaxing and moisturizing stressed out skin. During a specialized facial for chemotherapy patients, your skin will be treated with gentle products applied with careful attention and hygiene. We customize our treatments to fit unique circumstances, forgoing pore extractions (typically included), heavily scented products, and other aspects that may be uncomfortable depending on your needs. With this customized facial, dull skin is balanced and brightened, restoring a lustrous complexion.
