Chemotherapy treatments save lives, and the medications used today are targeted to treat various types of cancer successfully. The medicines have several side effects, including hair loss, weight gain or loss, and changes in the body. With the help of Dr. Andres, some of these aesthetic concerns can be resolved, restoring confidence and well-being.
Non-surgical treatments for chemo patients
If you have had chemo and are concerned about the changes to your skin, face, hair, and body, Dr. Andres offers a range of treatments specifically for cancer patients who want to restore a natural, healthy look.
- Hair loss: Many experience hair loss after chemo, including eyelashes and brows. These issues can be treated with microblading to create natural-looking brows. Eyelash growth can be enhanced with Latisse applications once daily. PRP injections into the scalp can help restore hair follicles to produce healthy strands more quickly and help avoid thinning when the hair grows in.
- Facial changes: For chemo patients who have experienced significant facial changes, with fat and tissue less firm and supple, dermal fillers can be injected to restore lost volume, treat under-eye bags or sunken areas, or injected carefully to keep the lips looking plump and healthy. Every person is unique in how chemo medications have affected the face, and all filler injections are performed with precision and advanced injection technique, guided by a commitment to achieve a very natural, healthy look.
