Prioritising aesthetic outcomes for skin cancers in cosmetically sensitive areas.

When diagnosed with a skin cancer in a cosmetically sensitive area it is important that patients are given the opportunity to explore all treatment options.

Surgical and nonsurgical treatments are available for non-melanoma skin cancers and these should be considered and discussed with a medical practitioner.

Surgery free options should be particularly considered when skin cancers are diagnosed in cosmetically sensitive areas such as the nose, ears, face and scalp.

Superficial x-ray therapy (SXRT) is the most effective non-surgical skin cancer treatment with success rates on par with surgery.

For individuals facing skin cancer on the nose, ears, face and scalp, surgical intervention often raises concerns about scarring and altered appearance.

Superficial x-ray therapy offers a non-surgical, gentle treatment that preserves the aesthetic integrity of these prominent facial features.

By precisely targeting cancerous cells with x-rays, while sparing healthy tissue, this treatment modality achieves remarkable results without leaving behind surgical scars.

The cosmetic advantages of superficial x-ray therapy extends beyond its non-invasive nature. Patients undergoing this treatment experience minimal discomfort, with short sessions that facilitate a swift return to normality.

The absence of surgical incisions ensures a smoother recovery process, devoid of post-operative complications.

With local accessibility to superficial x-ray therapy at Just Skin Treatment Clinic in Noosa all patients experiencing a diagnosis of skin cancer should consider accessing this cutting edge technology.
