Superficial Radiation Therapy Q & A

What is superficial radiation therapy?

Superficial radiation therapy, also known as SRT, is a procedure that uses low-energy radiation that penetrates no deeper than the thickness of your skin. Your provider uses the FDA-approved SRT-100 Vision™ system by Sensus® Healthcare to deliver precise radiation that targets specific skin cells, including keloid scars or non-melanoma skin cancer. 

What are the benefits of superficial radiation therapy?

Some of the many benefits associated with SRT at Moulton Group PC include:

  • No risk of post-surgical complications
  • No cutting, anesthesia, pain, or downtime
  • No bleeding, stitches, or unsightly scarring
  • Keloid scar removal
  • Non-melanoma skin cancer removal
  • Short procedures
  • Fast healing
  • No post-treatment reconstruction needed

SRT at Moulton Group PC is a painless, safe, non-surgical alternative to Mohs surgery. You can gain the smooth, clear skin and confidence you deserve. 

Is superficial radiation therapy right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for superficial radiation therapy, the Moulton Group PC team reviews your medical history and examines your skin in areas of concern. They might recommend you undergo a skin biopsy to determine which type of skin cancer you may have.

What happens during SRT?

SRT is a quick, painless outpatient procedure. While you relax in a comfortable reclining chair, your SRT specialist applies noninvasive radiation energy to your skin in problem areas without damaging surrounding tissues. 

The duration of your treatment depends on the number and size of skin lesions you have. Because there’s no downtime after SRT, you can resume a normal routine immediately.

What should I expect after treatment?

After SRT treatment, you can go home the same day as the procedure. Wear protective clothing or use sunscreen when you’re outdoors to shield your skin from UV rays. Your provider might recommend a series of treatments to give you the best outcome. Over time, your skin heals and regenerates new cells.

Don’t settle for undergoing surgery to remove keloid scars or non-melanoma skin cancer when highly effective non-surgical options are available. Schedule an appointment with Moulton Group PC by calling the office or booking online today.
