You know that little red, dry patch that looks like nothing and a bother to keep concealing?
LOOK AGAIN! SEE YOUR DERMATOLOGIST.
A client learns the little, red dry patch on her nose turned out to be Basal Cell Carcinoma and a surgeon and plastic surgeon succeeded in removing it. Needless to say this was very scary for my client and thankfully the doctors got it all. This was my first case of this nature but I do have clients whose old scars from the same nightmare are worked on within their Microdermabrasion treatments as well as LED,
The good news that I’d like to share here is that the speed of the skin recovery post-surgery was remarkable. Armed with a list from her doctor’s nurse to assist healing:
LED therapy: stimulates the skins naturally occurring regeneration and repair process.
Silicone gel: to protect from excessive moisture, drying out and infections.
Shade Factor B3 tablets: Promotes natural immune response to ultraviolet light, supports healthy skin before, during and after skin exposure.
Active C Serum: Healing, anti- oxidant protection, stimulates the skins natural collagen, lightens pigmentation.
Trentinoin or Retin A: By prescription. Increases collagen production.
This client comes each week for LED therapy for six sessions. Here are some photos for you to see the progress of healing from post-surgery to five weeks later. Take heart.
