BellaPelle skin specialists are certified in Oncology Esthetics™ to meet the specific skin care needs and challenges of individuals living with cancer. They are experts in performing skin and beauty treatments for these individuals, and all BellaPelle services can be safely tailored to help cancer patients feel comfortable in their own skin. See BellaPelle's available skin services below and when booking your appointment, be sure to let the staff know of your need to see a skin specialist certified in Oncology Esthetics™.

Cancer treatments can be very harsh on the skin, and BellaPelle wants to help alleviate this. BellaPelle Skin Studio is the first skin care studio to have their skin specialists certified in the Morag Currin Method of Oncology Esthetics™, and the first studio or spa in the Bay Area to host certification training courses. Learn more about the certification course or learn more about the methodology and Morag Currin's work from her website, Touch for Cancer.

The need for highly trained esthetics professionals to treat clients undergoing medical treatments is growing. More than 100 studies by the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami School of Medicine show that touch, such as a massage, facial or other skin care treatment, can help to reduce pain, mood disturbance and fatigue in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. BellaPelle is proud to offer these services.

Cancer patients and survivors can feel safe knowing that BellaPelle skin specialists are certified to meet their skin care needs. Their certification includes understanding cancer and what happens to a person's cells, possible causes of cancer, the main cancer therapies and how each affects the skin, the most common side effects from cancer therapies, early recognition of skin cancers, lymphatic system and oncology massage, immunology, sanitation and infection control procedures, oncology drugs and medications, and psychological effects of cancer, and many other topics and practices specific to this discipline.
