Healthy Skin After Cancer

As a respected plastic surgeon and breast reconstruction specialist, Dr. Doyle sees many women who are in the midst of or just finishing their treatment for breast cancer. Just as breast reconstruction is an important step in helping women regain their sense of femininity, so is helping them restore a healthy complexion.

At the Centre for Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery, we understand that skincare can be difficult during these trying times. Anne, our medical aesthetician and skincare specialist, has taken a special interest in skincare in relation to cancer. She has made it her priority to help each woman maintain the health and appearance of their skin.

How Cancer Effects the Skin

Chemotherapy, radiation, and medication all take their toll on the skin—especially affecting its natural moisture levels. With the skin being extremely dehydrated, many women experience dry and brittle skin that is subject to inflammation and itchiness that is often painful.

Along with the physical discomfort, women here in East Greenwich express their concern about how their skin has changed in appearance throughout the course of their cancer treatment. Top issues include flaking, dilated pores, rashes or hives, pigmentation issues, and an uneven complexion. Acne can also be an unfortunate side effect of some anticancer treatments.

How We Can Help You at Centre for Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery

It is important that women keep their skin hydrated as they go through and recover from their cancer treatment. By adopting a gentle skincare routine, women are able to keep their skin feeling and looking healthy. The right skincare routine, including in-office treatments and the use of quality, professional grade at-home skincare products, are paramount to keeping the skin both looking and feeling good.

We Will Create a Customized Plan Unique to You

Just as each and every patient is different, each treatment different—you may find that your needs are different depending on where you are in your diagnosis. To best cater to you, we start each visit at our East Greenwich practice with a personal consultation to establish your individualized needs that day. We will customize your treatment based on what you need that day.
