Rejuvaskin Revive Skin Recovery Cream 90ml
Why is it important to utilize a skin recovery cream while undergoing radiation treatment?
The most important factor of radiation treatment is fulfilling all your scheduled sessions. Unfortunately, over 85% of patients suffer some sort of skin discomfort, which often necessitates your physician to postpone treatment. Preparing your skin before, during, and after may eliminate these delays.
What are the symptoms of radiation dermatitis?
Usually the symptoms appear similar to a sunburn. These symptoms may include redness, itching, scaling, and even blistering in more severe cases.
Can radiation dermatitis be prevented?
Published clinical studies have shown that treating the skin with the ingredients in the Skin Recovery Cream may prevent or delay the onset of radiation dermatologic symptoms. For that reason, our formula works best when applied regularly beginning 2.3 weeks prior to radiotherapy.
How does this compare to other treatments?
Many over the counter products use petroleum and steroid based ingredients. Our formula uses Hyaluronic Acid (Sodium Hyaluronate), Aloe Vera, Calendula, and a proprietary blend of bamboo, pea, and glucosamine. Clinical studies show these ingredients have a positive effect on skin undergoing radiation. The proprietary blend is utilized in many high end skin treatments as a precursor to collagen formation.
Can I utilize it during treatment?
Of course, We simply advise that you apply at least 1 hour prior to your scheduled treatment. We recommend you begin using the Skin Recovery Cream 2-3 weeks prior to radiation treatment and continue for a least a month after your last treatment.

Which scar do you have?
Know the difference before you buy.
A Keloid scar also known as Keloidal Scar can be put into two categories depending on their maturity. 1) 111 (early type) or 1 (late type) collagen. It is a result of an overgrowth of granulation tissue (collagen type 3) at the site of a healed skin injury which is then slowly replaced by collagen type 1. Keloids can be firm rubbery legions or they can be shiny fibrous nodules. Their colour can vary from pink to the colour of the patient’s skin or from red to a dark brown colour. A Keloid scar is not malignant nor is it contagious, it can however get very painful and very itchy. It can also change in texture. In severe cases of Keloid scars, it can affect the movement of the skin. Keloid scars are more prominent in ethnic groups than they are in Caucasians.
Keloids are not hypertrophic scars, which are scars that are raised scars that do not grow over and beyond the original wounds boundaries.
Hypertrophic scars are scars that have an excessive amount of collagen causing the scar to rise, but not to the degree of the Keloid scar. Just like the Keloid scars they form at the sites of pimples, body piercings, cuts and burns. Hypertrophic scars contain nerves and blood vessels. They form after a thermal or a traumatic injury has occurred that involves the deep layers of the dermis and have high levels of TGF.
