What do all these aesthetic treatments have in common? I’m glad you asked!
They’re all services that can help with the aftereffects of having breast cancer.
Behind some common skin cancers, breast cancer is the number one leading cancer among women today. In fact, according to The American Cancer Society, it’s estimated that 287,850 women will receive an invasive breast cancer diagnosis in 2022 alone.
Dating back to 1985, October has been designated National Breast Cancer Awareness Month – an annual health campaign organized by charities and advocates to raise awareness and donations to fund a cure.
Where does AesthetiCare come in?
AesthetiCare is in the business of making individuals feel as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside, which is why we offer a wide array of cosmetic treatments for a variety of skin care concerns.
Aesthetic treatments such as diVa, Emsella, O-Shot and permanent makeup all help with certain aftereffects associated with breast cancer like hair loss, sexual health and more.
Stay with me as we dive into each one of these aesthetic treatments now!
The Best Urinary Incontinence Treatment: diVa
Experience swift relief from vaginal discomfort and urinary incontinence with diVa – the world’s most advanced vaginal rejuvenation laser.
Urinary incontinence in women is very common, especially after childbirth. Causes include:
- Breast cancer
At this point, you may be asking: What is urinary incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is defined as the sudden loss of bladder control. Therefore, when a person with urinary incontinence coughs, sneezes or laughs uncontrollably, they lose temporary control of their bladder, causing slight urine leakage.
The diVa laser treatment is ideal for breast cancer survivors who cannot take hormone supplements and treats intimate challenges in women such as urinary incontinence, vaginal laxity, painful intercourse and lack of natural lubricant.
After 30 minutes of numbing and three to five minutes to treat the vaginal canal, you’re left with improved vaginal health overall.
Restore Your Confidence With Emsella
Is there sex after breast cancer?
What if I have pelvic floor dysfunction?
These are questions that breast cancer survivors find themselves asking in the quest for a normal life after breast cancer.
If painful sex or pelvic floor dysfunction is an issue for you, Emsella is an AesthetiCare treatment that can help.
Emsella helps you reclaim your confidence by treating the following issues:
- Pelvic floor muscles
- Urinary urgency
- Urinary leakage
- Urinary frequency
- Sexual health
Emsella uses a high-intensity, electromagnetic technology that results in supramaximal contractions in the pelvic floor that can’t be achieved any other way. Over time, the stimulation leads to regained control over the pelvic floor muscles and bladder.
This non-invasive treatment takes about 30 minutes to perform. Four to six treatments are recommended two to five days apart for optimal results.
No downtime is required following this pain-free treatment, and some people feel the difference after just the first treatment!
While both Emsella and diVa can treat urinary incontinence in women, Emsella is most effective at treating weak pelvic muscles and increasing the sexual experience for men and women alike.
Overcome Sexual Dysfunction With O-Shot
In layman’s terms, O-Shot puts the “O” in orgasm.
O-Shot is a sexual dysfunction treatment that can help restore sexual health in the lives of breast cancer survivors.
O-Shot, a non-surgical injection, increases arousal and rejuvenates the vagina, which leads to results such as increased lubrication and more frequent orgasms.
O-Shot works by using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the patient’s own blood and injecting it into the vaginal tissue. The platelets then attract stem cells to the treated area and generate healthier tissue in the control center for sexual response in the vagina.
Courtesy of a numbing agent, the procedure is virtually painless and takes about 30 minutes from start to finish.
We typically pair this treatment with diVa for maximum results.
Combat Hair Loss With Permanent Makeup
A common side effect for breast cancer survivors is, unfortunately, hair loss.
Feeling like yourself, let alone looking like yourself, can take a while after such a difficult ordeal as cancer.
Wigs are a sustainable, appropriate alternative for hair, but what about eyebrow options for cancer patients?
Fortunately, AesthetiCare offers permanent makeup services like microblading, which is the technique of creating natural-looking, realistic hair strokes in the skin to reveal perfect eyebrows every day.
Microbladed brows do take some time. Plan on roughly two hours for the mapping and shading process. It will also take about one to three weeks for your eyebrows to look normal. A touch-up treatment is recommended for about 10 months out from your original appointment.
