Oncology Esthetics

Hair loss, paleness, sudden change of weight ... cancer often changes our appearance. A change not easy to accept, even if temporary; a change which affects not only the body, but also the spirit. Our project of Oncology Esthetics aims to provides ill women the tools to rediscover themselves during and after therapies.

Oncology Esthetics is a method developed theoretically and practically in 2008 by Morag Currin, specialized in esthetics and dealing with cancer care for over 20 years. The purpose of the Oncology Esthetics is to support medical and surgical therapies addressing the well-being of the patient also in terms of psychological well-being.



Over the years the method has become an international program- Oncology Training International (OTI) - which gather esthetics and cosmetics experts, doctors, psychologists, pharmacists from different countries to teach them esthetics oncology providing guidelines for safe beauty treatments compatible with the therapies.

Our project - workshops of Oncology Esthetics for cancer patients - is inspired by those guidelines and is made in cooperation with OTI Italy, the esthetics oncology platform in Europe, with the specialized support of Martha Health Care and the financial support of Susan G. Komen Italia, the nonprofit organization dedicated to breast cancer.

Thanks to this network in the coming months will realize workshops with groups of about fifteen women. During afternoon sessions we will explore and focus on the cosmetic needs and habits, we will explore what can be done to feel beautiful again, in spite of the disease.
