Skin Cancer Treatment and Keloid Removal
We believe every patient has a choice when it comes to his or her healthcare. That’s why we now offer a painless, safe and highly effective non-surgical option for skin cancer treatment and keloid removal — Superficial Radiotherapy using Sensus Healthcare’s SRT-100™.
There are four million new cases of basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma diagnosed in the United States each year. Skin cancer treatment options typically involve invasive incisions that damage healthy tissue and result in painful healing; a lengthy recovery and unsightly scarring that take an emotional toll on patients. Skin cancer treatment with the SRT-100™ is changing all that.
This new non-surgical skin cancer treatment with the SRT-100™ delivers a precise, calibrated dose of Superficial Radiotherapy that only goes skin deep. This low-dose of Superficial Radiotherapy safely destroys non-melanoma skin cancer cells without damaging healthy surrounding tissue. There is no cutting or stitching, less risk for infection, and no need for reconstructive plastic surgery to repair surgical scars.
Patients with skin cancer aren’t the only ones who can benefit from treatment with the SRT-100™. Superficial Radiotherapy is also an effective treatment for keloid removal.
When the skin is wounded — whether through surgery or injury — a fibrous tissue called scar tissue forms over the wound. In some cases, excessive scar tissue grows, forming a smooth, hard growth over the incision or injury. This growth is called a keloid and is often much larger than the original wound.
Keloids are chronic, non-malignant tumors that often form following surgery, but may also be triggered by other skin traumas, such as acne and chickenpox, ear piercing, burns and other skin injuries. These unsightly, embarrassing and sometimes painful scars affect nearly 18 million people in the U.S.
The SRT-100™ safely destroys the cells that form keloids, keeping the skin smooth as the incision heals. Patients may require a series of treatments, depending on the size of the keloid scar.
Performed right in our office, Superficial Radiotherapy with the SRT-100™ delivers optimum results to treat skin cancer and remove keloid scars without the negative side effects of invasive treatments. This treatment is ideal for patients who have existing medical conditions that may make surgery a serious health risk.
