    I had breast cancer. I had chemo, surgery, radiation. On hormone blocking medication. Just had DIEP reconstruction surgery.
    My skin is aging quickly do to my age 58, medication and life.
    Is there something safe that I can do. I’m especially noticing deep frown lines that weren’t there 2 years ago. I don’t want to loose myself and appearance.

      There are many treatments that are safe for patients who are in recovery from breast cancer. We would generally avoid heat-based therapies (such as laser) for 6 months following radiation treatments but most other options are available to you and there are many. If frown lines are a principle concern, then Botox or Xeomin treatment is definitely indicated and is safe to use in your situation. Microneedling plus PRP is a great option for those in recovery (although having a European facial to start can be a nice self-care treatment that hydrates the skin +++ and improves circulation). Our facialist is particularly trained in management of oncology patients. At home pharmaceutical grade skin care can really go a long way to boosting and maintaining the effect of in-clinic treatments. A general consultation with our nurses/medical aestheticians is recommended to start but you can book a European facial anytime without consultation.
