Studio City-based esthetician, Paty Cholewczynski, is a trained esthetician in the safe approach to individuals going through cancer care, and has expanded her practice to provide customized skin care for people living with cancer. Her certification, earned through Oncology Spa Solutions facilitated by True U Education in Chicago, prepares professional estheticians to provide safe, personalized spa treatments to people with health-challenged skin.
During this extensive training Paty, learned how cancer and therapy treatments affect the body at the dermal and lymphatic level. The program explored the side effects of cancer therapies, how those are compounded by various medications, and the importance of proper sanitation to support weakened immune systems. This coveted certification also trained Mrs. Cholewczysnki how to perform gentle, yet effective protocols using compatible skin care ingredients.
“Beyond keeping my practice on the leading-edge on safe ingredients and treatments, this certification has allowed me to safely serve a new, very deserving, group of individuals with health challenged skin,” - “Through the power of esthetic touch, I am dedicated to providing a soothing escape for individuals living with the effects of cancer. By safely and effectively working with the largest organ, the skin, I can directly support the psychological and physical care so necessary for a client living with cancer.”
