NOTE: A 30 minute consultation is required prior to ANY service given. And since we work with closely with your Oncologist, we require that your doctor fill out a form granting us permission to continue with any treatment. This consultation is usually done before any treatment is given.
NOTE: We are not trained Oncologists or Doctors. Therefore, we cannot treat or diagnose any sort of cancer that you suspect you may or may not have. We can, however, refer you to see your doctor for further testing and will be your listening ear when you need us to be.
What is "Cancer Care Esthetic Services"? Long story short, Cancer Care Esthetic Services are specialty services offered to both men and women whom are currently undergoing active cancer treatments (radiation; chemotherapy; immunotherapy; targeted therapy; hormone therapy; etc) or whom are currently a survivor of cancer and/or it's treatment.
Who Are These Treatments Performed By? Can Anyone Perform These Services? All of our Cancer Care Esthetic services are performed by a highly trained Esthetician by an accredited program. Our Oncology Esthetician has been certified through OTI (Oncology Training International) in Ontario, and works with only high graded professional and safe products for all of our clients with cancer. This is to ensure that you're treatment with us is a safe, hygienic, and enjoyable one for you. We are currently in the process of also becoming a member of the International Society for Oncology Esthetics, which "promotes and encourages the professional practice with the goal of improving the physical and mental health of immune-compromised individuals."
Why Would I Seek Treatments from a Certified Oncology Esthetician, or Go To a Spa/Studio Setting For This Kind of Treatment? Because you're skin care needs are unique, and because you deserve it. All of our skin care products are safe and effective to treat the individual needs of our client's with cancer. Product sensitivity, changing sensitivity to scents, hydrating products, and taking your current health status into account are just a few things that we're trained to work with. You deserve the best care possible. Please note: we also work closely with your health care team of professionals to make sure you're getting the safest care possible.
Do You Have Products for Me To Take Home With Me at the End of My Service? Yes. We offer a full line of skin care products if you would like to purchase at the end of your service with us. All products for purchase are used during your treatment with us.
But This Type of Service Must Cost More. Absolutely not. We're here to help, not to gouge you (you've been through enough). The cost of a Cancer Care Facial is the same as our Skin Rescue Custom Skin Care Treatment.
Cancer Care Relaxing & Rejuvenating Facial
$50 In this specialty facial, we are going to focus on hydration and building up your skin's natural barrier and repair. This is a great facial to have if you are undergoing active treatments, and are experiencing nausea.
Cancer Care Natural Nail Care
$39 - basic hand care aka: The Manicure $49 - basic foot care aka: The Pedicure
Cancer Care Relaxation Massage
$30 - 30 minute treatment Although we traditionally offer relaxation massage treatments in 30 and 60 minute intervals, we feel that 30 minutes is suffice for anyone undergoing any type of cancer treatment. Picc lines, etc will be taken into consideration prior to your treatment with us.
$25 - Feet First Since we get a lot of requests for this, we are offering a stand alone feet first massage treatment. No pun intended.
