The treatments against cancer and melanoma, whether pharmacological or surgical, can affect the patient’s image and aesthetic. Hair loss, the appearance of dark spots on the skin, greater fragility of the skin and brittle nails are just a few examples. Re-pigmentation of the areola or eyebrows may also be necessary after a mastectomy or chemotherapy.
Aesthetic Dermatology for Oncology, led by Dr. Alba Català and Dr. Cristina San José, is a service for cancer patients provided at any stage of their illness. The dermatologists provide facial and body treatments designed to ameliorate the aesthetic impact of their medical treatment and to provide patients with a sense of wellbeing, emotional comfort and self-confidence.

Eyebrow and Areola Micropigmentation
Micropigmentation is a technique which pigments the deepest layers of the skin to achieve a long-lasting effect. It is a very effective solution to the loss of eyebrows due to chemotherapy or for enhancing the areola around the nipple after a mastectomy.
