Thursdays, By Appointment Only, Provided by Geralyn O’Brien, Licensed and Certified Oncology Esthetician
Cancer treatments may leave the skin dry, sensitive and lacking proper nutrients. Because of the changes in the epidermis, traditional skin care methods and products can sometimes do more harm than good. When skin is compromised, it needs specific products that are safe and gentle to bring it back to health without adding additional strain or discomfort. Geralyn will assess your skin care needs and provide the appropriate treatment to help restore and maintain healthy skin. *Priority in scheduling is given to those who are in active treatment or who have a metastatic diagnosis.
