Per aiutare la tua pelle a sentirsi più a suo agio durante e dopo la radioterapia, il personale medico può raccomandarti l’uso di R1 e R2. Si tratta di un nuovo trattamento in due fasi che rinfresca, lenisce, allevia il dolore, idrata, riduce l’infiammazione e aiuta a mantenere sana la cute. La prima fase di trattamento è rappresentata dal gel rinfrescante R1. La seconda fase è la lozione idratante R2.

What happens to your skin before and after radiation treatment

Radiation treatment uses high energy rays like x-rays to treat disease inside your body. But to get to the right place, these rays have to pass through your skin. As they do so, they heat the skin and attack healthy skin cells, which break down and die. This may make your skin sore, leading to dryness, itching or peeling. If your skin gets too sore, it may delay your next treatment. Skin repairs itself quite quickly, but if you are having treatment almost every day, your skin cells simply do not have enough time to grow back between treatments.

Why R1 and R2 have been developed

Water-Jel Technologies, who have developed and manufactured R1 and R2, are world experts in the treatment of thermal burns. R1 and R2 is their answer to the problem of treating the side effects which can occur on the skin during and after radiation treatment.
