What is the SRT-100™?
The Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT) system is a compact, state-of-the art system that helps eliminate skin cancer cells. Because the amount of radiation penetrates just a few millimeters below the skin’s surface, SRT-100 treatments can preserve healthy skin cells while still targeting malignant skin cancer cells.
What are the benefits of the SRT-100™?
SRT-100 treatments are a safe, effective method the team at Dermatology of Boca uses to target basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. The low dose of radiation is a quick, non-surgical alternative to Mohs surgery, which has a higher risk of infection, longer recovery and potential for scarring. In addition to excellent cure rates, there’s no risk of infection with SRT. Patients heal quickly with no restrictions on their lifestyle and no need for reconstructive plastic surgery.
Can SRT help with keloid?
Yes! While some may try to treat painful or unappealing keloid scars with over-the-counter products, surgical removal is more common. However, there’s always a risk following surgery that the incision site will produce a new keloid, which manifests as a shiny, fibrous overgrowth of scar tissue. Dermatology of Boca uses SRT following surgery to prevent the regrowth of keloid scars. The painless, non-invasive, low-dose of radiation is a wonderful method to ensure patients won’t see new scar tissue form.
