A new, non-surgical treatment for skin cancer, SRT, or Superficial Radiation Therapy. The innovative new device, the SRT-100 by Sensus Healthcare, allows us to treat with fractions of radiation smaller than a dental x-ray. While patients require several treatment sessions, distinct advantages include no needles, no post treatment pain, virtually no bleeding or risk of infection and minimal scarring. IG-SRT, an Image Guided Superficial Radiotherapy solution, provides the ability to target the affected areas as a painless, effective alternative to Mohs surgery.
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is also called photoradiation therapy, phototherapy, or photochemotherapy. It uses photosensitizing agents, along with light to kill cancer cells. The photosensitizing agent is either injected into the bloodstream or applied to the skin. After the drug is absorbed, light source is applied only to the area to be treated. The light causes the drug to react with oxygen, which forms a chemical that kills the cancer cells.
Eclipse Hair Restoration is a high concentration of platelets surrounded in its own plasma. A small amount of blood is drawn and the red cells are isolated from the plasma. There is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection as the procedure utilizes the patient’s own blood.
