Superficial Radiation Therapy

Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT)

Superficial Radiation Therapy treatment modality offered by Advanced Dermatology Associates is a low-energy radiotherapy that goes no deeper than the thickness of the skin. It is a proven non-invasive procedure that has been used to treat non-melanoma skin cancer for over 50 years. Because the superficial x-rays concentrate the radiation dose on the skin surface, the treatment has several advantages over surgical procedures for certain skin areas. These advantages include:

  • Virtually painless
  • Very short procedure time
  • Heightened safety
  • No anesthesia requirement
  • Minimal to no scarring
  • Virtually no post-surgical infections
  • Faster healing process
  • Virtually no need for reconstruction after procedure
