About five million people in the United States are currently receiving treatment for skin cancer, and four million new cases of basal and squamous cell carcinomas occur each year. Skin cancer treatment often involves making incisions that damage healthy tissue, leading to a painful healing process and a lengthy recovery.
The team at A to Z Dermatology believes that every patient deserves a choice when it comes to treatment. That’s why they offer superficial radiation therapy, a safe, painless, and highly effective alternative to surgical treatment of skin cancer. They use the SRT-100 by Sensus Healthcare, a leading company dedicated to improving the lives of people with skin cancer.
The SRT-100 delivers a low dose of precisely calibrated superficial radiation therapy that only goes skin deep. The radiation destroys cancer cells and the non-cancerous tumor cells that cause keloids while preserving your healthy skin tissue.
The Sensus SRT-100 is the non-surgical treatment of choice for nonmelanoma skin cancers. This revolutionary treatment destroys basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and keloid scars without damaging healthy skin cells.
SRT treatment is virtually painless, so there’s no need for anesthesia. The team at A to Z Dermatology performs SRT treatment as a quick, in-office procedure. The treatment itself only takes a few minutes, but you may need multiple sessions.
Depending on the location of your skin cancer, you may lie on an exam table, stand, or sit in a chair during treatment. There’s no pain involved, but the treatment area may feel warm.
Possible side effects of superficial radiation therapy include hair loss, redness, itching, and dryness. These side effects only occur in the treatment area.
The best way to find out if SRT therapy is right for you is to talk to the team at A to Z Dermatology. They perform a physical exam and review your medical history to make sure you’re a good candidate for superficial radiation therapy.
SRT therapy offers several advantages over surgery, including minimal to no scarring, reduced risk of infection, and a faster recovery. This allows you to return to the activities you love without discomfort.
